  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 clich├ęs, 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. DC Comics

    Snagglepuss: Exit Stage Left actually turned it up a notch in its final issue. (When it went meta it blew my mind.) It's an easy best of 2018 for me.
  3. DC's Young Animals (New Imprint)

    Isn't Sandman Slim a pimp?
  4. The first issue of A Walk Through Hell (Aftershock Comics) was stunning. If he can maintain that standard, it'll raise the bar for horror comics.
  5. 1990s Gimmick Covers

    There was a Moench/Jones Batman arc guest starring Deadman that had cracking Kelley Jones glow covers. If you look closely at this one you can see that the glow effect reveals Deadman.
  6. Looks like this might actually be as good as the Christmas teaser trailers suggested.
  7. 1990s Gimmick Covers

    That Daredevil glow cover was amazing.
  8. Fuckbiscuitshitangels (Warren Ellis)

    I wonder if he intended to use a different decade for every 8 issues.
  9. Other comics we read recently

    The fifth issue of Mark Russell's Snagglepuss Chronicles is out. It's still amazing.
  10. 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.
  11. Other comics we read recently

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

    Today I learned that Christopher Priest and Jim Owsley are the same person.
  13. 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.
  14. DC Comics

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

    I wonder who wrote the Tripwire piece?
  16. Here's th' link: http://www.cwseed.com/shows/constantine-city-of-demons/

  18. Not a hoax

    It's probably lightboxed from a reference photo of Sean himself, so I hope he doesn't read this forum.
  19. January's issue of War Stories, #26, was the final one. I only learned this today.
  20. 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.
  21. 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/
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
