  2. Image Comics

    I liked it too. Hopefully the quality keeps up. I think its already been picked up by netflix judging by the huge logo on the back cover. Hopefully it is being written for the comic first and not just storyboards for a tv show. In a similar vein, I enjoyed Evan Dorkin's, Blackwood at Dark Horse. It's not as sinister, at least not yet, but the first issue was fun.

  4. DC's Young Animals (New Imprint)

    The Young Animals line is ending, to be replaced by the Black Label Society and Sandman Slim. Not a big surprise. The head of the line already figured out he couldn't be bothered to write a Doom Patrol comic book.

    Having enjoyed Matt Kindt's work for many years imagine my surprise that is missed a new book from him. Someone on the This Week list mentioned Ether. What a charming book. Like Castle Waiting meets Adam Strange in The Okefenokee Swamp. Yay comics!
  6. DC's Young Animals (New Imprint)

    I think I am down to Eternity Girl but I might be up to date with Shade the Changing Girl too. The way I buy the comics is disjointed at the moment. But the latest EG is great fun. Different multiple origins are always fun.
  7. Image Comics

    In the days of the Nothingness, many pretenders, usurpers and worthy apprentices came to replace John Constantine. The latest if these is The Magic Order by Mark Millar and Olivier Coipel. And I like it. Take Zatara/Zatana & siblings. Add global conspiracy of magic that has rarely worked in Hellblazer and never in JL:Dark. Smother it with lashings of gorgeous artwork. Oh yeah and no "For mature readers" £#$%words. @@@@ing good start. I hope this sustains.

  9. The Hellblazer #16 and beyond

    I bet* this Graphic Novel will turn out to be the very book that SW Manor was seeking back in the days of Hellazzer. Remember**? That unfinished plot thread? *The Trading Places bet, if you're interested. ** I don't really remember this, just as something that appeared to be leading somewhere then vanished like an old oak table.

    Another great issue. This version of the Endless were quite fun.
  11. The Hellblazer #16 and beyond

    Very nice. I like how thick Batman's cowl looks. That is a nice touch.
  12. The Hellblazer #16 and beyond

    Bermejo's work in general is fantastic
  13. Other comics we read recently

    Ha! A brief cameo in the newest issue of Black Hammer shows that another Lemire character exists in the Black Hammer multiverse.
  14. Hellboy/B.P.R.D. thread

    I'm enjoying the new Witchfinder mini-series (Gates of Heaven). D'Israeli is on art, so you can't go wrong with the art. The plot involves ancient mysteries and will be fleshing out the back-story of a character from the BPRD series.
  15. Marvel's One World Order

    Iron Man #1 (by Dan Slott)-I still can't say that I'm enjoying an Iron Man comic. It's better than what Bendis was doing on the book anyway (but, that's not hard). I can't say this forebodes well for Slott relaunching the Fantastic Four, although I'm still holding out hope for more of his Silver Surfer and less of....well, most of the rest of Slott's work. I mean, I haven't really enjoyed an Iron Man comic since Busiek wrote the book way back in the 1990s. Before Busiek, I probably hadn't truly enjoyed an Iron Man comic since the Denny O'Neil run....so, it's not as if Slott is alone in not being able to write a truly compelling Iron Man story. I did like seeing the return of a classic Iron Man villain, but that's not enough to keep me reading. This will be the first book I've read of Marvel's "Brand New Start" which I won't continue reading. Avengers and Ant Man continue to hold my interest, and Waid's Dr. Strange improved with issue #2.

    I wish I could like your post twice, cause I would
  17. Other comics we read recently

    Based on your guys recommendations I've been burning my way through Black Hammer, and hell yes it's a great comic. At the back end of the first volume now, will definitely keep reading! Edit: Still reading through Black Hammer on Comixology instead of working and just finished Doctor Star. I'm such a huge fan of James Robinson's Starman, I can't believe I didn't know this comic existed until now. Lou, you're right, I had tears in my eyes reading that final issue.
  18. What Would You Put in a 30th Anniversary Collection?

    I see "Hold Me" as this quintessential Hellblazer story that everyone loves unconditionally, except for me. It's a solid, decent done-in-one story, so it meets my criteria for inclusion, it's just not my favorite story. However, your points about how it's a a list for a fictional collection is certainly valid, so why would I put in a story that I don't like so much? Switch out "Hold Me" for Delano's "In Another Part of Hell" from # 84, much better issue and one of my personal favorites.
  19. The Hellblazer #16 and beyond

    Bermejo's Batman is channeling his inner Adam West in that one panel.
  20. What Would You Put in a 30th Anniversary Collection?

    The hardcore Gaimanoids have already bought that story three or four times, Christian. I doubt even they'll pony up for a Hellblazer collection just for that.
  21. The Hellblazer #16 and beyond

    Lee Bermejo posted an interior page of DAMNED to his Instagram and it looks great.
  22. What Would You Put in a 30th Anniversary Collection?

    They could just put the Constantine Sandman issue if they wanted to do that, too.
  23. What Would You Put in a 30th Anniversary Collection?

    Because, they have to put "From the World of Sandman, Neil Gaiman Presents: Hellblazer!" on the cover of the collection, if they want people to buy the book. Including #27 is the only way that is possible with the Hellblazer comic. I remember when "Hold Me" was only available in-print within the Midnight Days Gaiman collection, or in the official movie TPB. You either had to stick a TPB without "Hellblazer" anywhere on the binding amidst your collection, or you were forced to buy that abysmal movie adaptation book.
  24. What Would You Put in a 30th Anniversary Collection?

    Why would dropping the Gaiman be a serious omission? It isn't like it's not collected elsewhere, or that anybody's going to buy a collection to get hold of it yet again (or that the collection you're proposing is ever even going to exist, come to that), so why not just dump it in favour of one of your real favourites?
  25. Garth Ennis Loves Superheroes and Soldiers and Lesbians

    Read the first two issues of A Walk Through Hell today, and while the second issue didn't maintain the momentum of the first, that first issue was goddamned amazing. That opening sequence literally took my breath my away.
  26. What Would You Put in a 30th Anniversary Collection?

    I missed that #120 was in there, and that Rich is contributing - that's great!
  27. What Would You Put in a 30th Anniversary Collection?

    Yeah, I'm glad they're including # 120, that's one of my favorite issues. Here's my ideal issue line-up: Saga of the Swamp Thing # 37 (for posterity) Hellblazer # 4 (Waiting for the Man, Delano's entry) Hellblazer # 27 (Hold Me, Gaiman's entry, though not one of my favorite issues it's exclusion would be a huge omission) Hellblazer # 40 (Forty, Ennis' entry) Hellblazer # 120 (Desperately Seeking Something, Jenkins' entry) Hellblazer # 140 (Locked, Ellis' entry and a good basic horror story) Hellblazer # 213 (The Gift, Carey's entry) skipping Mina entirely Hellblazer # 238 (The Smoke, Diggle's entry) Hellblazer Annual # 1 (Suicide Bridge, Milligan's entry) I think that would give a pretty good overview of the series as a whole while sticking to the single-issue story motif.
  28. The Hellblazer #16 and beyond

    Aside from that Batman: Damned book by Azzarello where he's co-starring and he'll inevitably be turning up in Tynion's JLD relaunch as well, it seems a break is what John's getting. His DCU book is cancelled for now, and he doesn't look to be making the return to Vertigo anytime soon, either.
