  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. Not a hoax

  3. Not a hoax

    It's probably lightboxed from a reference photo of Sean himself, so I hope he doesn't read this forum.
  4. January's issue of War Stories, #26, was the final one. I only learned this today.
  5. 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.
  6. 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/
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 16 Comic Book Series Nobody Admits to Owning

    Absolutely none.
  10. 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/
  11. 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.
  12. 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".
  13. Kill Or Be Killed

  14. The Hellblazer #18 (2017)

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

    Where do I send the money? That would probably be amazing even without subtitles.
  16. 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/
  17. Image Comics

    That looks interesting, Christian — thanks. As always, I'd recommend 2000AD. And have you read Sex Criminals?
  18. 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.
  19. Just Got into Hellblazer...

    Didn't DC do that already with The Terrifics? Which hasn't been released yet, but whatever. Apparently Alan Moore's ABC character Tom Strong will be part of that team — hard to believe Tom Strong dates back to 1999. It helped that Marvel's Star Wars comic was f*cking sweeeet. What a classic. I don't have a problem with that particular decision. The X-Men weren't always Marvel's flagship properties, so it's fine by me if the baton gets passed to another element of the MCU.
  20. Swamp Thing

    Thanks, I'll keep an eye out for that.
  21. Swamp Thing

    That's a keeper.
  22. DC Comics

    I've bought the first two, haven't read 'em yet.
  23. Doom Patrol and Rachel Pollack

    Nice quote in there from Lou Stathis: "If Vertigo can't publish Rachel Pollack, what's it for?"
  24. Marvel's One World Order

    The first three issues of the Chip Zdarsky / Adam Kubert relaunch of Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man have been great stuff. Zdarsky is an underrated writer, and a perfect fit for Spider-Man and for Marvel. The world would be a better place if 99% of superhero comics were done the way he does 'em.
  25. Marvel's One World Order

    ^ That.
