  1. Other comics we read recently

    Desperately sorry, Ade, but I just tracked down the first 2 issues, and I thought it was shite. I'm not even gonna bother with the third. It read like Alan phoned it in from a list of zombie movie clichés, and Simon Bisley's art did nothing to help. Considering the anticipation I felt for more comicbook writing from Alan, this was quite a disappointment. Garth Ennis' Crossed, which covers very old ground, does a better job. You're on the money about the covers, though.
  2. The Toy Thread

    Those are pretty impressive, especially considering the size of 'em. I wonder if the finish is that good on the production versions, or if the photos show hand-finished one-offs like they do for Star Wars figures. The Horta looks like a Heroclix crap.
  3. Other comics we read recently

    According to Wikipedia, yes. (For certain values of "religious reasons or something".)
  4. Other comics we read recently

    Today I learned that Christopher Priest and Jim Owsley are the same person.
  5. DC Comics

    Same here. Four issues have come out (badoom-tish) so far and I can't wait for the fifth. It's a wonderful work of art.
  6. DC Comics

    What did I miss? And have you thought of donating your funnybooks to a charity store?
  7. Birthdays

    I wonder who wrote the Tripwire piece?
  8. Here's th' link: http://www.cwseed.com/shows/constantine-city-of-demons/
  9. Not a hoax

  10. Not a hoax

    It's probably lightboxed from a reference photo of Sean himself, so I hope he doesn't read this forum.
  11. January's issue of War Stories, #26, was the final one. I only learned this today.
  12. DC Comics

    +1. Were we supposed to notice the parallels to the Fantastic Four or not? I certainly noticed Ivan Reis' parallels to Neal Adams.
  13. Marvel's One World Order

    Thanks for the info, Christian. I'm down for Nick Spencer's take on Spider-Man, and Al Ewing's Immortal Hulk looks intriguing too: https://www.cbr.com/immortal-hulk-bruce-banner-al-ewing-joe-bennett-interview/
  14. Marvel's One World Order

    I'm looking forward to seeing Ta-Nehisi Coates' run on Captain America. Gonna pretend it's not starting with a new issue 1.
  15. Other comics we read recently

    The current-era James Bond comics have generally been solid stuff. I'd like to see an arc by Brubaker and, say, Michael Lark, or someone else who does traditional newspaper-strip artwork.
  16. 16 Comic Book Series Nobody Admits to Owning

    Absolutely none.
  17. 2000 AD

    Wow, more than 2 years since the last discussion of 2000AD. If any of you feel like colouring some Carlos Ezquerra art, there are downloadable pages here: https://www.millsverse.com/carlos/
  18. Sean Phillips posted this variant cover on Twitter: I can't get the current version of the forum software to embed Sean's tweet, so what you're looking at is my scaled-down version. The original in all its Phillipsian glory can be seen at https://twitter.com/seanpphillips/status/936642752263147520 He's also tweeted work-in-progress shots of other variant covers.
  19. A Hellblazer miscellany

    We don't seem to have a catch-all thread for stuff about Hellblazer that doesn't belong in its own thread. Maybe there's a reason. Writer Philip Sandifer is doing a series of articles called "The Last War In Albion" which he describes as Here's the entry about John Constantine: "Declare Yourself A Magician".
  20. Kill Or Be Killed

  21. The Hellblazer #18 (2017)

    Now that I think about it, issue 18 will be 2018, not 2017. Ahem.
  22. Batman: The CG Anime Series

    Where do I send the money? That would probably be amazing even without subtitles.
  23. What Mike Carey did next

    Happy 2-year anniversary to this old thread! Mike's new comic Barbarella (yeah) is due early December. http://www.westfieldcomics.com/blog/interviews-and-columns/interview-mike-carey-on-dynamites-barbarella/
  24. Image Comics

    That looks interesting, Christian — thanks. As always, I'd recommend 2000AD. And have you read Sex Criminals?
  25. Other comics we read recently

    Humble Bundle is doing its thing with the new modern-era James Bond comics: https://www.humblebundle.com/books/james-bond-comics Writers include Warren Ellis, Andy Diggle and Kieron Gillen. The Ellis arcs are pretty damn good (and complete), and the others are never less than readable.
