    Big books of comics

    Rebellion are the current publishers: 2000AD used to be owned by Egmont, but Rebellion (a computer games company from Oxford) bought it off them a few years ago.
  2. I can't understand why they're letting Rushkoff write a comic in the first place. His novel stinks and he's a lousy journalist (the most notable element of his attempts at comics criticism in Cyberia is how badly wrong they are: it's like watching an amputee fail to juggle...)

    I'd imagine they'll be on abebooks or Amazon marketplace, though they might be going for an arm and a leg there.

    They wouldn't be as their the two best collections. America, which a lot of people cite as the best Dredd comic ever, has been out of print for years and Rebellion are presumably too busy collecting as much of the goadawful crap Ennis came up with when he was writing Dredd in the early '90s to bother making any of the worthwhile stuff available at the moment. Wankers.

    To be honest, I decided that I wasn't going to look at Fables (or anything else by Willingham, come to that) until such time as he publically apologises for that Merv Pumpkinhead oneshot and donates whatever he got paid for it to some worthy cause.

    Hellblazer Q&A

    The shirt's probably in next months's Previews.

    Hellblazer Q&A

    He's a coffee drinker. Anybody who's scripted him drinking tea paid no attention to Delano, and is probably an American.

    War Lord

    have you read any Mick Farren, though?

    Hellblazer Q&A

    They were definitely an item at one point.

    Hellblazer Q&A

    That would be Phil Foglio's Stanley and His Monster. Poor Ambrose Bierce is always being mistaken for John Constantine. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> OMG! I HAVE A QUESTION IS AMBROSE BIERCE BISECKSUAL??? :icon_cry: <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Not any more, no.

    Hellblazer Q&A

    He could have a case of the Howard Hughes' I suppose: that whole "Don Juan homosexual" thing popular with footstallers and pop stars...
  12. That was the Grant Morrison story, wasn't it? Where did Richie Simpson get burned up? I know that was outside of London, but I don't recall where it was.

    If the Cursed Earth and The Judge Child Quest are in print at the moment, you'd probably enjoy those ones as well.
  14. Like a crombie with a vinyl panel over the shoulders: they're often favoured by council workmen while digging up roads in winter. (Now I think about it, Constantine's sporting one along with his beard in Carey's first story...)
  15. Right. Just not the first story then. Thanks.
  16. Early on Batman's origin is mentioned during a conversation that takes place in 1939: hadn't the character been around for four or five years before it occured to Bob Kane to explain why he was dressin g up as a bat and fighting crime?
  17. Aren't donkey jackets more traditional than trench coats for that sort of thing?
  18. Nobody has any thoughts about who they'd actually like to see contributing short stories and/or a novel, then?
  19. It's pretty terrible, I'd have said. Nothing like the Max stuff, and certainly not worth twenty quid.
  20. Is this story about a by election (I think for a State Governor) where an advert was screened by the Republican candidate rubbishing his opponent, true? Said advert was, it seems, just a list of smears aimed at the chap, calling his conduct and morals into doubt. The killer line at the end was apparently "Liberal".
  21. Your gut could be right. Given that the Hellblazer stuff has always been far more character driven than the Sandman (unless written by Azzarello, of course), I suspect that the extra length of a novel is going to work a lot better in this case. The really annoying thing about that Sandman anthology is that I've got a couple of Michael Moorcock them anthologies by the same publisher (who is also the editor of the Sandman one who wasn't Gaiman) and those are pretty good. They even involve a lot of the same writers.
  22. A nice idea, but that Sandman anthology wasn't very good: apart from the John M Ford and George Alec Effinger stories it was a complete waste of time.
  23. Anybody you'd like to see taking a stab at writing one of these Constantine novels besides John Shirley? It'd be interesting to see what Ramsey Campbell or Kim Newman did with the character, I'd have thought.
  24. I've just reread Carey's run and it's a while since I've read any of Delanos, so Carey. (I enjoyed the Campbell story, myself.)
