    The bit of Scotland just over Cumbria.
  1. Comics Shipping the Week of September 18th 2017

    True that, and huge chunks of Planetary were just shoehorning showily blatant analogues of DC and Marvel characters into the WSU anyway. I'm more interested (like Lou and yourself) in seeing how he's going to revamp some of the other Wildstorm launch characters to fit into the new version. If he's trying to keep it all very SF will the Doctor or Savant still fit in somehow? (We can probably forget the Night Tribes completely, and looking at how Grifter and Deathblow have been set up, there probably wasn't a Team Seven either...)
  2. Upgrade

    Looks good, and if the search function works better when all's finished, only a churl would dream of complaining.
  3. Just Got into Hellblazer...

    Thanks, I'm here all week. Remember to tip your waitress... (Straightfaced: the up vote stuff is a nice touch. Thanks for that. That's come in with the revisions, hasn't it?)
  4. Just Got into Hellblazer...

    That said, I really couldn't have seen Ellis doing a Freezes Over or Hard Time, and it wouldn't have been beyond him (having quit the book in a tantrum over having an ill timed, but far from brilliant story pulled) to produce something over a forty issue run that made all that made all of the dogfucking and sweetly musky balls nonsense look like The Dead Boy's Heart by comparison.
  5. Just Got into Hellblazer...

    I think it's a bit unfair to blame the whole "less rambling and more plot driven" thing on Carey alone: weren't DC editorial leaning on everybody to plot out story arcs with collecting them into trades rather than having individual issues function as readable in their own right at the time he was working on Hellblazer? (I'd also question that he didn't still get plenty of character points into the stories: there's several stories where he digs pretty deep into Constantine, Gemma, Chas and Angie in particular and even the disposable villains get some backstory and something resembling an inner life. Hell, he even treats the FOTF as a character rather than a convenient plot device, doesn't he?) And hello, Jason. It's always nice to see new posters in here.
  6. TPB Covers

    It'd be nice if DC just kept the text on the spine and the back and left a clean image on the front of the collections, wouldn't it? Put the logo and volume title on the shrink wrap instead of the cover.
  7. Test & forum update noise

    I like the new look, but what's this noise about notifications?
  8. TPB Covers

    That's a rather fine image, even if the glass is a bit "Simon Bisley draws an Absolut advert" (Has McCrae ever drawn a comic with John outside of the Section Eight miniseries and that splash page in Hitman?)
  9. Hellblazer pulp

    Very true.
  10. Hellblazer pulp

    It would, but I'm with Ade and John in that I'd much rather see a fatter OGN in paperback (on crappier paper in B&W if that'll keep the costs down some) than an overpriced and slim hardback.
  11. Marvel's One World Order

    Thy're rebooting reality from scratch with next year's big crossover, obvs.
  12. TPB Covers

    Maybe they could use photocovers?
  13. Hellblazer pulp

    Quite. That's why the crime "novel" series was such a success both times DC tried it.
  14. Fuckbiscuitshitangels (Warren Ellis)

    Not quite as messed up, but it still works.
  15. Fuckbiscuitshitangels (Warren Ellis)

    I thought Lockjaw being a relative of Karnak's whose transformation had inspired his parents' reluctance to expose him had been retconned away now?
