  5. Comics Shipping the Week of February 12th 2018

    This week I paid more for comics than I have for a while, but that's because I got the Mr Miracle issues so far. Also Barbarella, continuing my preference for the more artful covers, I got the Jorge Fornes one. Matt Kindt's Grass Kings which continue to enthrall. And Justin Jordan's Death of Love which appears to be a Sex Criminals Variant - in a good way. ie less sex and a nicely constructed anti-hero (in the sense of an unlikable protagonist)
  6. Other comics we read recently

    I think I bought the Legion collection. How does this work? What's the one that Mike Carey wrote? Hmm, maybe I didn't buy it. Unless I sent it to the wrong address. I looked at it in the shop and the later art is distressing. Meanwhile, I found some bags of old comics that I must have brought from my Dad's last year. The Lost (Andreyko, Showman, Geldhof) Squalor (Petrucha) Empty Love Stories #1 (Steve Darnall, various artists) which reminds me to recommend Twisted Romance anthology, a weekly burst of fun) And... wait for it ... Ethan Van Sciver's Cyberfrog ! How times have changed.
  7. DC Comics

    I have taken your advice on Mr Miracle. I also glanced at the page in the Antimethea comic where she appears and thought I might vomit. Are we to assume that some people who make decisions about comics are idiots? On the bright side, a quick survey of the current DC Roster tells me that I am enjoying the silly crossover with the new Vertigfaux comics by Daniel Way and his friends. Young Monsters in Love and Swamp Thing winter specials were nice. And Mystik U turns out to be a decent YA comic with a crap name. I might give Neal Adams' Deadman a go when it is collected. And I loved the classic Pieta cover of Batman and Clayface, but not enough to buy the innards of the comic. (There are some lovely covers on bad DC comics right now, aren't there?) I will be buying Liam Sharp's nice work https://www.dccomics.com/comics/the-brave-and-the-bold-batman-and-wonder-woman-2018/the-brave-and-the-bold-batman-and-wonder
  8. Marvel's One World Order

    I won't be buying any others in the Infinity thing - that I am aware - but the Allred Warlock is fab.
  9. The Hellblazer #18 (2017)

    I did not judge the book by its cover, I merely judged them independently of each other.
  10. The Taggart-less Taggart approach

    That's because Vertigo gives work back to the owners to do what they want after the initial commitment. Seems very reasonable since many of these would not be so successful to start with, if not for the wider promotion that a vertigo launch gives.

    Oh yes, it's a comic shop. Not a pie shop or a shoe shop.
  12. Comics Shipping the Week of January 29th 2018

    The shop I went into had none of the three i wanted. It's an odd place.

  14. Going in and out of style?

    http://www.syfy.com/syfywire/the-creator-of-constantine-reflects-on-his-epic-hellblazer-run-30-years-later "I guess I did want to write a different type of comic: one that gained its impetus from the horror – largely social and political – shared and hopefully understood by both its characters and readers," says Delano.
  15. DC Comics

    Sorry if this is painful to admit, but Doomsday Clock is well written and lovely to look at. And OH MY GOD, THEY KILLED STEWART LEE ! THE BASTARDS!
  16. The Hellblazer #18 (2017)

    Nice to own this cover, and do you know what, this was badly paced all over the place, but actually the second best issue of the story arc 3/10 Thank goodness for DCU CROSSOVERS !!! Is that right, did someone say that was happening?

    Peter Milligan is going back to his prime directive :-)


    Oh, hello nice comic. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/prisoner-jack-kirby-gil-kanes-unpublished-issues-be-released-1077049?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
  20. DC Comics

    We should call this new thing ANTIMETHEA. For that is what it will be.
  21. Other comics we read recently

    I just bought a comic JUST BECAUSE OF ITS COVER http://archiecomics.com/firstlooks1-10-18/ I have to say, the people who do Archie Comics and the TV shows have done a splendid job. Maybe THEY should be in charge of comics?
  22. Marvel's One World Order

    Oh. I sense a new Mary Sue is in the building "renowned young psychotherapist Hannah Jones" https://news.marvel.com/comics/77075/legion-journey-mind/
