    Just Wildstorm out of that lot, unless I've missed something.

    I wonder if that means somebody at Rebellion has decided that the time has come to start reprinting a load of comics drawn by Eric Bradbury, the way they did with Massimo Bellardinelli a while back?

    Just Goddess Mode. The Bisley sketchbook might be interesting as well, but I'd want to know what the sketches in it are first. 😉

    Les Batman-y but spoilery: some notes that may reveal plot points about the first issue of Goddess Mode. (Said spoilers are freely available elsewhere, including on the comic's cover, but are still a big first issue climax so are being hid below. It's dubious that anybody wants to read a review of this anyway.)

    To be fair, Kevin Smith isn't the worst name there as the dreaded Tynion IV is scripting a story for the special as well...

    You'd think that Paul Dini might have warranted an invite as well, come to that. (ETA) He did. He has a decent artist as well. My mistake.

    Just Green Lantern and the League of Rum Coves out of that lot.

    No question the art would look better at a bigger size. Maybe they'll collect it in one of those big coffee table "absolute" hardback editions once the series has finished?

    As a pastiche of Jamie Delano's run on it, or did he get that out of his system when he was writing Hellblazer? 😉

    Thanks. I think that's the one, then. Weird they've finished that and reprinted it with the "original author"'s stuff but haven't reprinted any of the Gaiman stories: maybe somebody at Marvel is deliberately trying to wind Moore?

    Mister Miracle, the first three issues of the final LOEG, and Green Lantern.

    Still working on the ABC Warriors, John?

    I'll have a look at Goddess Mode, as its mere existence will piss off the twats on 4Chan (this obviously makes it something that should be encouraged) but nothing else there takes my fancy.

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

    Jason: might it just be simpler to just look for a torrent of the collection? If you've already bought the floppies, it's probably not that big a theft if you don't want to pay for the hardback for 18 pages of notes. (Of course, the notes could well be the sort of added extra that's there to encourage people who already the miniseries to buy it again as a hardback: they're a lot more interesting than the couple of pages of script and a few character designs and alternative covers you usually get as backmatter. Maybe that's why they're not online anywhere already?)

    The backmatter's definitely work a look. Apart from anything else, it explains the connection between Nameless and the veiled lady, and makes clear that there's more going on in the story than just kabbalism. Jung is relevant as well. Maritimus this is possibly a misreading rather than a spoiler

    Is the legendarily unpublished Grant Morrison Kid Miracleman strip that didn't appear in Warrior in there as well?

    Just Green Lantern. The women in gaming book might be interesting, but £25 seems a bit steep just to see if they've included Jamie (nee Jay) Fenton or are taking a genetic line to which games designers qualify as women...

    Got you. Maybe Titan will do a better job of keeping these in print than they did with the previous, slimmer collections they were publishing a few years back?

    Yep. You do wonder why Ted Pierce never went into comics, really. He'd have done a classic Batman run, at the very least... [ETA: I tell a lie - Duck Amuck was written by Michael Maltese, not Ted Pierce.]

    I always liked the ones where Daffy Duck gets into a shouting match with the animator and is redrawn as something odder to spite him. Breaking the fourth wall or what?

    And not as good as that "I can see you" page in Animal Man back in '88?
