    oh no!<br /><br />convincing my cats I'm not their matress is a priority.<br /><br />History, music, fiction, mythology, football, formula 1, finding out what I'll be doing with my life.
  1. Looks fantastic; makes me want to read the book.
  2. Thanks for the advice, everyone. Can't believe I hadn't thought of Bone. Unfortunately (for my cousin) the big Bone book isn't available down here, which is a good excuse to buy him a bunch of different comics, including, of course, Bone. Looks like he's 13 or 14 years old now. I bet he doesn't know how old I am, anyway.
  3. Here's the deal. Today is my cousin's birthday and, as usual, my mother and I can't decide what we should buy him as a present. We've bought him and his brothers a bunch of books in the hope that they might, one day, grow to love reading, but considering that his parents barely read department store catalogues, we haven't had much luck. Which is why I had the bright idea of saying that this year we should get him some comics. It's actually a pretty good plan, except that I have no idea what comics are out there that would be suitable for a 12 year old (or 13 year old, I'm not sure. Shame on me). My uncle and his wife are on the conservative and boring side of things, and my cousin is a bit naïve, so excessive violence and swearing wouldn't be a good idea. Suggestions, anyone? Asterix is already on the list, by the way.
  4. I have to go with Jenkins, partly because of Sean Phillips' artwork, which is fantastic. Some of the stories are a bit slow, but Critical Mass is always worth a reread. I love Haunted, but the artwork bothers me. Haven't read enough Delano to decide - need to spend more time in front of the computer.
  5. that's what I thought and it's a shame, because I think that the movie could have been better. Clive Owen's performance would be a good example of the 'fake' acting, except for the car sequence with Benicio del Toro.
  6. Finally, finally got to see Sin City this monday (it was released last thursday, but *coughs* it's cheaper on mondays). Considering that I woke up feeling less than healthy on tuesday, I should have stayed in bed, but I'd waited for the movie long enough. I liked it. Can't say I thought it was great, though the visuals were nice. I thought it dragged a bit toward the end, but that might have been my fault. I do hope that the annoying woman who complained because it was 'too violent' went home infected with my cold. Grrr. Might see it again with a friend next week. I wasn't disappointed, but I didn't walk home from the cinema thinking it was the greatest movie or comic book adaptation ever. If the sequel gets released down here, I might skip it.
  7. Wow, if that was how they all went about assimilation, I don't think there would be too many folks ready to bring some resistance. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> history and reality agree with you and not my witty ways. You sure you still want my unproduced first born? ;)
  8. resistance is futile.
  9. I'm no insomniac, I just hate going to bed before midnight. Of course, that's no excuse for being up and around this late at night, except that it's quiet and I get to work on my stuff without interruptions. Gayland. I like the sound of it. 8-)
  10. I don't know what the laws are like in your neck of the woods, hilde, but how's your first born sound??? :unsure: Why no, my name isn't Rumplestilskin. Why do you ask? :D <{POST_SNAPBACK}> I've no objections whatsoever to give you my firstborn in exchange for Hellblazer #214. However, unless you feel like waiting for a long, long time (my social life is pathetic), I could use with a little assistance helping me find someone to co-produce said first born ;)
  11. :o :icon_redface: :D :o wow. I'll send just about anything that's legal to mail in payment to the kind soul that, well, sends me a copy of this issue.
  12. You have no idea how lucky you are (at least where comics are involved). Do you know who got the rights to publish Vertigo comics in Latin America? Well, it looks like no one did. Nadie. No more Vertigo comics for the Spanish-speaking Latin American types. The good side of the story is that I won't be spending as much money as I used to. The bad side of the story is that I'd gladly spend that money. Farewell Hellblazer, Fables, Lucifer, Animal Man, Y the Last Man. Hello, occasional downloads.
  13. my spirit is indeed powerful! :D (thanks for the kind words, by the way )
  14. now I'm officially intimidated. great idea, by the way.
  15. Not at all. It was a bit confusing, as I - obviously - didn't know exactly what had happened before and a number of details went over my head. I thought back then, and I still do, that it was a beautiful story and it made me want to read the rest of the series. The beautiful artwork didn't hurt, either. edited because I missed James' post. it wasn't that I chose to read Sandman backwards, it's the way it was published. First we got The Wake, then The Kindly Ones. It wasn't until I visited some friends in England that I got a chance to read Preludes & Nocturnes. Why would anyone think it's a good idea to start publishing a series with the last books it's beyond me.
