    People are still using tumblr now that they've banned all the porn blogs?


    Do you have something important to say here? Rather than something you could have posted on your porn blog and got more readers?

    And I am 3/2 through Jeff Lemire's astoundingly beautiful Essex County trilogy.

    The first part is the tale of a kid who meets a slightly backward man in his local village, who turns out to be a former hockey star. The kid spends his whole time dressed as a superhero as a promise to his dying mother. This one is quite gentle, but the second (much longer) part is about two brothers (who turn out to be the father and uncle of the man in part one and also hockey players) from the village. One brother chooses family and home over his hockey stardom, the other ends up as the narrator of their tale, an old man, deaf, possibly dementing and remeniscing on their relationship.

    For such a simple art style this packs more emotion than all them films with their minor key sad soundtracks. Beautiful.

  4. I though Jeff Lemire deserved his own thread.
    I might do the same for other writers of note, since the Old Ones just ain't up to much.

    Oh, and some of Christian's nice reviews of books get lost in the generic threads.



    Oh that's nice. I missed the film deal stuff, but actually, I could think of many more Lemire books I'd rather see on the screen before Black Hammer.

    Not at all a criticism of Black Hammer, as Jason T knows, it's the best thing that's ever happened to Lou K.

  5. I think it's more a function of the time.

    Similar revisiting of the DCU (I recall Resurrection Man arrived around the same time). And also similarly created by people. With an eye on realistic relationships between characters.

    Tgat reminds me I bought the collection so it might be buried in my pile of piles somewhere.


    I liked Chase.

    She had a suitably Constantinian view of the DCU

    Me too!


    I wonder if either of the two big US comic companies have tried getting themselves on iTunes - being able to buy downloads through same for, say, a euro would be most excellent.

    Did you ever get paid for this idea?

    And does someone have scans, as I appear to be missing a few issues from my archive
