    No thanks. They really should have started that collection with Deanna Troi.

    ^ That's how much comics cost in Australia. Superman #5 Lone Ranger Volume 3 #2 Bitter Root #1 2000 AD Pack October 2018 (sort of) Christian, are you tempted by William Gibson's Alien 3?

    Rest in Peace, Stan Lee

    This must make Howard Chaykin's Hey Kids! Comics! seem like it's in poor taste.

    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 Elizabeth Sandifer is doing a series of articles called "The Last War In Albion" which she describes as Here's the entry about John Constantine: "Declare Yourself A Magician".

    There's a nifty take on Constantine by Charlie Gillespie on the cover of the new issue of Comic Scene: https://comicscene.tictail.com/product/comicscene-uk-issue-4-pre-order

    Yeah, that was a great comic. Have you read Fatale and The Fade Out?

    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.

    Here's a preview of Bitter Root, written by David F Walker, whose work I shamelessly promote. https://www.previewsworld.com/Article/217855-Sneak-Peek-Bitter-Root-1-From-Image-Comics

    It goes even further than that, if you buy into this very deep take: https://www.thecomicregime.com/comicnews/graphic-encounters-7 It's a literary essay on that first issue of The Lone Ranger.

    Carlos Ezquerra

    The Vertigo edge strip makes that cover art look like the Saint's leaning against a door jamb. Carlos was the founding Judge Dredd artist, but the first thing that always comes to mind when I think of his art is the adaptation of The Stainless Steel Rat he drew for 2000AD.

    This one's better. https://www.oglaf.com/knightsandknaves/ (Safe for work.)
  12. Ouch. That's kind of bittersweet.

    How would you rate Change by Kot? I picked up issue 1 secondhand, but haven't read it, nor have I chased up the remaining issues.

    Land-graspin' ranchers and oily crooked politicians are tropes of the western genre. The way they mirrored present-day concerns was obvious to us, but I think (though I can't prove anything) that a lot of readers could have read and enjoyed the same story without registering the parallels.

    Thanks for the heads-up!

    Christian, I see your point, but I thought it was stunning. (The script anyway — the art is a bit too Romita Jr cartoony for my tastes. Imagine the same thing with more realistic art!) The politics were there if you were looking, under the radar if you weren't; and very timely, yet directly and unironically applicable to the Lone Ranger and Tonto. Apart from a couple of jarring jump cuts that might have been down to the writer or artist, I thought the storytelling was masterful and the dialogue was a hoot. I went in to the comic with high expectations and it blew me away. Total win.

    Battlestar Galactica Classic #0 Lone Ranger Volume 3 #1 (Cover C Francesco Francavilla) Same here. If that was available in Australia I'd buy it. Probably. Two Marvel-homage covers in one month!
  18. I don't really see Karl Urban as Butcher, but I'll give it a go.

    DC Comics

    Yeah, same. Maybe the first few pages weren't the best pages for a preview. But between the writing ("THEN USE MINE, GREEN LANTERN!!!!!1!!1!") and the stiff art, that book's off my list.

    That sure was a classic period for Batman / Detective Comics. Before Batman became all about punching people.

    Lots of names from the past in this thread. Oglaf is still going, and the latest strip is one of the best in a while: https://www.oglaf.com/remains/ (Caution: filth)

    Invasion! is itself connected to Savage, which still runs in 2000AD from time to time. Directly connected, in fact. Dom mentioned it above. They're both written by Pat Mills. Did any of you see that storyline from a couple of years back where ? One of the all-time great 2000AD moments IMHO.
  23. 1. You're right, thanks for the correction. 2. That's worse.
  24. "Always the worst words could be spoke at me"? Fuck off Dick van Dyke. ?

    At this stage I'd buy Mark Russell's shopping lists.
