OH YEAH! That's another I've been really impressed with, especially Matteo Scalera. Yet another guaranteed trade buy.

I have seen it in a shop (Travelling Man in Leeds, to be precise). It was big.

They're doing a lot of big collections at the moment, some of them great. I'm about halfway through the complete Minimum Wage collection at the moment, which is very reminiscent of peter Bagge's quieter moments, if all of the characters weren't grotesque freaks. That's probably damning it with faint praise, though, as it's an excellent comic.

oh, dear lord! if you have black science #5, check the first letter in the letter section. that fucker called me and told me when he sent it that his letter would be published in the next issue. he didn't say he fit Rick Remender's cock and both balls into his mouth while doing so.

It's been an absolute pleasure to sink back into Stray Bullets - as I only ever followed it through trades this is the first time I've had the chance to read through the final chunk of issues.  Brilliant reading from start to finish, an all time comic's great.

And now he's making more, oh fuck yeah.

Southern Bastards was quite good. Real interested to see where this goes.

OH! That is good to hear. It seems like the Image Quality Comic Train keeps on rolling.

However, I missed it. Well...by missed it, I mean my LCS didn't have it, or at least many copies. They've been really sucking lately on having comics not of the Big Two. I don't know if it's just my shop or it's Diamond or what.

My place had tons of copies. I am stopping by there after work to grab another for a friend.

Shall I pick one up for you?

Thanks, Brother Lou. But there is more than one shop here in these parts and I have no problem going where I need to get what I want.

So, I bought it digitally for iPad (I'm doing this more and more). This sort of story is familiar, guy returns to home town to find a shit storm, gets caught up in it, then tries to set it right. It's a bit Walking Tall, with more grit and good BBQ. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Just as I'd never fault Brubaker for writing a noir story involving a hard-luck case and a femme fatale, I won't fault Aaron for writing a southern fried, one good man in a town gone bad, gritty drama. Everything works on this book, intriguing characters, quality dialog, a full realized setting (you can tell Aaron is pulling from his roots, Alabama born 'n' raised), to the damn wonderful, gritty, gnarly, grisled art of Jason Latour. THIS GUY!!!! WOW.
Basically, if you loved Scalped, you'll love this.
I will ABSOLUTELY! be getting this in trade.

Lot of similar themes from Scalped, when you think about it.

Abolutely. But, hey stick to what you know works.

Also, I like how Aaron has made comparisons to Thor, saying it's kind of the same, but with more beards and BBQ

Sex Criminals is dirty, raunchy adult fun. Fraction & his buddy Chip took it to places I wasn't expecting. And I liked it!! It's like a fun, dirty little secret you can't really discuss in open public or near children or the elderly or really any "normal" person. Fantastic comic-ing.

TOP 10 Image books right now.
http://multiversityc...ooks-right-now/
It's a solid list. Some books just aren't my thing, like Revival, but I see why others like them. And some, like Rocket Girl Alex + Ada, I've not read. But you cannot go wrong with the likes of Saga, East of West, Sex Criminals, Manhattan Projects, and Deadly Class.
I'd put Fatale up there (though it ends next issue) and DEFINITELY Velvet. Prophet, and Lazarus.
Also, I really need to read Chew. Shame on me.
