    Black Hammer and the worlds of Jeff Lemire

    Another excellent issue of Black Hammer where questions are answered, sort of

    I dont know how well the show follows the comic, as i have never actually read it. But the first episode of this show was great. Super trippy in a good way.

    Hellboy/B.P.R.D. thread

    I will say this, those early BPRD books have some great Guy Davis art and might be worth reading just for that. I always felt his work was a great compliment to Mignola; it was very different obviously, but so moody and weird. it really worked for that book.

    Hellboy/B.P.R.D. thread

    You could read just Hellboy and be fine, They sort of run Parallel with Hellboy crossing into BPRD, but it was always a secondary book. For some reason early on the BPRD minis were always relaunched with #1s but on the inside cover it would say something like "23 in the series" My advice, Just read Hellboy, then if you are still interested go back and dive into the different BPRD/Abe Sapien/Hellboy and the BPRD books.

    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.

    Black Hammer and the worlds of Jeff Lemire

    Another great issue. This version of the Endless were quite fun.

    The Hellblazer #16 and beyond

    Very nice. I like how thick Batman's cowl looks. That is a nice touch.

    What Would You Put in a 30th Anniversary Collection?

    They could just put the Constantine Sandman issue if they wanted to do that, too.

    Black Hammer and the worlds of Jeff Lemire

    Yeah, that was an excellent mini. The world of Black Hammer might be my favorite thing going right now.

    Black Hammer and the worlds of Jeff Lemire

    So the latest issues of Black Hammer, it looks like Lemire is taking us thru this worlds version of the Vertigo universe. Our new Black Hammer has to deal with a John Constantine pastiche, it goes as well for her as you would expect. Next week it looks like he's dipping his toe into very familar Vertigo waters, so it will be fun to see what's up with that.

    The Hellblazer #16 and beyond

    I would have expected that sort of behavior from Guy Gardner, but not you Hal Jordan.

    The Hellblazer #16 and beyond

    I keep thinking about that Nameless comic and how weird and nice an approach that would be for something like GL. I'm starting to get excited about this.

    The Hellblazer #16 and beyond

    Morrison on GL sounds great, i will totally read that. Maybe Hellblazer will move back to Vertigo where it belongs

    Hellboy/B.P.R.D. thread

    So i just read the newest BPRD issue from a few weeks ago last night. It begins with actual Hellboy in Hell drawn by Mignola himself. So you've got like 3 pages of classic Hellboy, before it returns to what is left of the world and the BPRD. So if any of you guys are completist, it's there. BTW, I enjoyed the issue alot beyond the opening bit, there is a bit of a mystery going on with BPRD personnel which could either be great, or really blow so we'll see on that.

    The Hellblazer #16 and beyond

    So I finally got around to reading 21 and enjoyed it for the most part, but as Ade was saying, the slang is very strange. It's almost too much, really.

    Other comics we read recently

    Gudeon Falls was strong again this week, though I'm less interested in the story of the collector than that of the priest.

    DC Comics

    This sort of thing is what I was thinking of when I suggested a High School art teacher. I had a bunch of old Boys Lifes I unloaded that way.

    DC Comics

    Oh man, the recycle bin. Maybe give them to the library or a HS art teacher or something.
  19. Dave

    The Hellblazer #16 and beyond

    Well, these two issues were a huge step back. after Seeley's issues that almost felt like proper Hellblazer, we have returned to the middling stories of Famous Magician Nu52 John and a quest for a magic gun.

    But let's be honest, the hunt is the best part of collecting comics. So that shouldn't be a deterrent for someone.

    The Hellblazer # 15

    Well, this arc ended on a whimper. It's unfortunate, because i really enjoyed the first two issues. As as already been stated, the addition of a JLA featuring Swamp Thing was just silly. I also, am still not down with John having Magick Blasts or whatever was going on with that, but that bit was all a dream, i guess. I did like dropping thru a corpse into the land of Dwarves.

    The Hellblazer # 14

    Another good issue, I liked the idea of places having memories and how it was used in the issue. Looking forward to 15

    New Writer Starting With Issue 13

    I read 13 last night and it was a marked improvement over 12. This felt like proper John. If not for the young face, I would have thought this was the older Vertigo John. It almost felt like his scars were drawn but not inked in a few panels, but that may have been my old eyes but going on me. I'll read 14 tonight probably.
  24. Dave

    The Hellblazer #11 & 12

    Well, I finally got around to reading it last night and I've already forgotten what happened in it. I've got a big stack of these that have built up, so maybe I'll try to burn thru 1 a night.

    Not a hoax

    Yeah, the flat Supes logo isnt helping. Its like he is opening up his shirt and revealing a wall.
