  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Best comics of 2017

    What were the best comics published in 2017? If it appeared in 2017 or it was cover-dated 2017, that's close enough. And "best" can mean "best of the small cross section I read" or "my favourite". Here's my list of approximately 5: Kill or Be Killed 2000AD Captain America - Sam Wilson Moonshine What's your list?
  5. The Hellblazer #18 (2017)

    Now that I think about it, issue 18 will be 2018, not 2017. Ahem.
  6. Best comics of 2017

    Not gonna mention The Flintstones, Christian?
  7. Batman: The CG Anime Series

    Where do I send the money? That would probably be amazing even without subtitles.
  8. 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/
  9. Image Comics

    That looks interesting, Christian — thanks. As always, I'd recommend 2000AD. And have you read Sex Criminals?
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Swamp Thing

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

    That's a keeper.
  14. DC Comics

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

    Nice quote in there from Lou Stathis: "If Vertigo can't publish Rachel Pollack, what's it for?"
  16. 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.
  17. Marvel's One World Order

    ^ That.
  18. Marvel's One World Order

    Christian, by way of consolation, here's J.M. singing for you.
  19. Hey, it's written by J.M. deMatteis! http://collider.com/constantine-animated-series-poster-cw-seed/ Edited to add: J.M. says "...it's a wonderful story, broadly adapted from the "All His Engines" graphic novel."
  20. 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".
  21. A Hellblazer miscellany

    Ancient Tomb of Santa Claus Discovered Beneath Turkish Church
  22. Hellblazer pulp

    Thanks! I was bored.
  23. Hellblazer pulp

    C'mon, Ixnay. You're only fakin' that achin' for Chaykin. It's the thought of Nick Necro that's got you shakin' the bacon.
  24. Hellblazer pulp

    Oops... yeah, I forgot one of my perennial favourites.
  25. Hellblazer pulp

    Writing for Hellblazer when Hellblazer's over? Pete Milligan's already done that. +1 for Paul Cornell and Al Ewing. And can we have John Wagner and Nick Spencer please?
