    Have you found God?

    All the cool people party in Hell! :) <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Look up my Grandfather when you get there: he runs the pedalboat rental concession on the lake of fire.
  2. He was still using .45s, though: that's the calibre those Ingram SMG things come in. It isn't quite as impressive as a pair of huge old fashioned pistols, though, you're right. Mark, I'm a bit surprised nobody else has mentioned Eisner, to be honest.
  3. I liked it a lot: I think updating the character worked brilliantly in that, and it gave Helfer a bit of a headstart for his series as well. Mark, I think Gaiman has to go and I'm having Kirby instead. *nips off to edit earlier post* Should've mentioned Bryan Talbot as well, but there's nobody else in the list as is I want to get rid of. Oh well.
  4. Given the number of votes Frank Miller and Howard Chaykin have had so far, there's no reason why not. hell, even Grant Morrison and Alan Moore went through a phase of illustrating their own scripts at one point. (And I forgot to mention Jack Kirby. Arse.)

  6. ebooks are not going to work until they develop a player for them that won't break if you drop it and doesn't give you eyestrain.

    It beggars belief that nobody's published a nice fat collection of his cover drawings, doesn't it? Presumably DC would rather fawn over McKean and Fabry to keep Gaiman and Ennis sweet. Wankers. (Yes, I know that cover wasn't done for DC.)
  8. [weeble]How innaresting[/weebl].
  9. Looking at the last issue of Previews, they've only done half a dozen of the things so far, and one of those is The Haunted Tank... :wacko:
  10. You mean exactly like DC's Showcase collections? ;) <{POST_SNAPBACK}> That sort of thing, yes. :icon_redface:
  11. Actually, I disagree. I'd love to see a truly appaling Sandman film, myself, if only because I've lost all sympathy with Gaiman over his whining about terrible scripts.
  12. If they have to have an American Constantine, Christopher Walken would be pretty good.
  13. Cheap, fat black and white collections, rather than thin expensive ones? It's hard to shake the feeling that this one of the big blank spots in their line.
  14. I'd misread your post, I admit it. My bad.
  15. Surely Spider Jerusalem beats people up and steals their car rather than catching a taxi?

    "America" is one of the best Dredd stories (if you can call it a Dredd story - he's hardly in it), in my opinion. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Oh he's in it allright: that last word of his is pretty chilling... You should definitely read that one Lyra.

    That's one of the bad Ennis ones, unfortunately. (He'd done a few before Emerald Isle, that was just the one where he started shoehorning Bog Oirishness into it.) It's unfair to lump Equezera in with Ennis, though: he designed the character in the first place (it's notably that Mcmahon's earlierst Dredd strips have him doing a fair pastiche of Equezera) and had a very purple patch in the early '80s. That said, he also illustrated most of Mark Millar's Dredd stories... :wacko:

    Sorry, I didn't grasp your point. You're probably right about it being a good way in as well, though that may be more down to Mills actually writing the fellow as a hero rather than a complete and utter git. (That said, the series did start improving massively after Wagner got given a free hand with that...) Are you not as taken with Carlos Equezzera's art as with Bolland and McMahon's?

    It seems that they've started publishing a series collecting all of the strips in order: that might be worth a look as well. (Btw, Mark: The Cursed Earth was by Pat Mills, it was only the burger wars episodes they can't reprint John Wagner did.)

    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.
  21. 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.
