  1. Comics Shipping the Week of Oct 23rd

    Is that all reprint, or is there new stuff in there?
  2. Other comics we read recently

    I'll say what I want about Milligan: if he gives me the money I wasted on his Hellblazer run back, I might stop doing so.
  3. Other comics we read recently

    The comic where all of the weird shit is clearly tied to cabbalistic notions about the qlipoth and the stuff that happens underneath reality? Milligan hasn't done anything that grounded and coherent since the Minx was cancelled fifteen years back...
  4. Other comics we read recently

    Oh, come off it, Christian. Multiversity was a very tightly structured narrative, it just wasn't structured around a linear plot.
  5. Other comics we read recently

    I thought he'd stopped doing that twenty odd years ago and his stuff has been a lot more structured and plotted out since the late '90s?
  6. Marvel's One World Order

    In fact he is, but he tries to keep quiet about that. His family insisted that he change his name when he went into writing comics rather than a respectable field like stand up comedy. The name on his birth certificate is "Cannock Chase".
  7. Marvel's One World Order

    I really like the tail end of the original series as well, but I think the Danny Ketch series is a lot better than it gets credit for, particularly (as Christian says) when it was obviously doomed to cancellation and the writer (Ivan Velez?) just went as gleefully batshit as he could towards the end.
  8. Marvel's One World Order

    I thought you'd read the JLA stuff he cowrote with Giffen as well? If you're taking the line that only creator owned comics are significant, that's all of Hellblazer, Swamp Thing and Sandman out the window, for a start...
  9. Marvel's One World Order

    Which can make up for all sorts of failings in some of his other work, no question.
  10. Marvel's One World Order

    It was published separately for an arm and half a leg in hardcover, iirc.
  11. Marvel's One World Order

    What about Even More Moonshadow? Was that Vertigo or dd he do that one through Image or somebody?
  12. Other comics we read recently

    It wasn't fucking Milligan that traumatised...
  13. Marvel's One World Order

    I think there was a miniseries, or possibly a one shot, called Mercy and a sequel to Moonshadow done as a big expensive hardback as well.
  14. Marvel's One World Order

    Blood isn't all that good, to be honest. I'm heartened to find that Christian agrees with me on that one, as he likes DeMatteis' approach a lot more than I do. (Though it is very funny on the level that you've got a very wordy comic indeed only being worth reading for the magnificent job Kent Williams did on polishing the turd of a script...)
  15. Marvel's One World Order

    Was Metropol epic? I thought that one was years later.
