  1. I started on the last issue of Fear and Loathing. I was an off-and-on reader though Jenkins' run, and then read all the way up through the beginning of Milligan before I just couldn't afford comics anymore. (Now i'm back, and reading Lantern titles)
  2. I want to chime in to agree with Christian that Morrison does bring the fun with the characters, and he's probably that "One person, living or dead, you'd like to have dinner with" for me. I kind of want to hire him to be my life coach.
  3. Oh, don't get me wrong...Alan Moore's stuff these days is like if it's not League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, I'm not interested. I looked at the Neonomicon a few weeks ago, and it was disgusting. I couldn't find any reason for the extended group rape scene, and I think it's a misunderstanding of what makes the Lovecraft Mythos scary. And I can't think of anything in the last ten years that Morrison has done that has had any sort of rape (Though that might be because he switched places with Kind Mob and KM is writing comics now...)
  4. Morrison book spoilers follow... Here's the link to the interview I'm referencing. Rolling Stone interviewed Grant Morrison, and in the interview, Grant makes some valid points about Alan Moore. In fact, the title of this post isn't quite fair because I don't really take issue with what he said about Moore; what I take issue with is this: "We know Alan Moore isn't a misogynist but fuck, he's obsessed with rape. I managed to do thirty years in comics without any rape!" So that wasn't an implied rape scene in Hellblazer when the father and his friends invade the daughter's room? And I supposed Lord Fanny's rape, shown twice in the Invisibles, doesn't count? You could make the case that Ragged Robbin's rape doesn't count because it was a false memory. However, you can't write off the Crazy Jane was raped by her father off panel, and then by a stranger in a church on-panel. Maybe I'm being nit-picky because I've read a lot of Morrison in the past year,so it's all fresh, but still...that's a lot of rape for someone who doesn't put rape in comics.

    Marvel comics

    I was going to ask if anyone was reading The Defenders (right now, it's the only book I'm getting). I see that Christain likes it to. Good stuff...though I'm not sure I like the promiscuous Dr. Strange. Iron Fist is great, though.
  6. Yeah...I really doubt I'll be buying this, and I haven't even looked at any of the New 52. DC just doesn't interest me anymore.

    Open the window, and a breeze blows in, and I....
  8. I love Phonogram. This issue wasn't my favorite, but it was good.
  9. YES. My favorite issue in quite a long time.
  10. Meh. Unless this stuff comes up again later, I'm not sure what the point was.
  11. Damn. Sorry to hear that, Tim. We're all thinking of you. -jaynova/Jason Novak
  12. Although if you're interested in the back up stuff, it won't be in the trade.

    Big books of comics

    I've got that issue!
  14. OK...I'm going to get a lot of shit for this, but I loved Phonogram 2, issue 2. This story arc, "The Singles Club," has 6 stand alone issues that take place in the same place at the same time, and when taken together have that whole "Different experiences of the same events = different stories" thing. Anyway, I reccomend this series, even if you hates "Rue Brittania". Commence beating in 3...2...1...
  15. Quoted from a facebook conversation with a friend of mine, after my friend implied that Ellis whines on Bad Signal because he can't get any from some girl on a website:
  16. I think that Vertigo will be done when they cancel Sandman. When that book's done, Vertigo is done. What do you mean, "The Dream Hunters is just an adaptation?
  17. Because formatting won't work without considerable effort, here's a link to my review of the Watchmans from my blog. CLICK In short, it looked good on film, but it missed so much of what made Watchmen great. Meh.
  18. Non-comic book friends? Why would even be friends with them?
  19. Especially because Disney owns them. I can't see them doing anything contraversial with Snow White.
  20. We're very different people, you and I. You guys are total opposites! So, Tom...how does it feel to be so right?
  21. Holy crap! On the Grendel, Constantine, and Death entries on that site, we are quoted! http://www.adherents.com/lit/comics/comic_book_religion.html

    The Eternals!

    I really liked the Gaiman series, even if no one else seemed to. The current series is slow moving but good. I like Acuna's art A LOT.
  23. That's why I pretty much stick to good old fashioned voyeuristic peeping Tomming (is it correct to make Peeping Tom into a gerund?). I think that Peeping Toms engage in Tom-Peeping. And I work at a college, so that must be right.
  24. Writers: Neil Gaiman-Sandman Dave Sim-Cerebus (I've only read to issue 200) Garth Ennis-Preacher James Robinson-Starman Keith Giffen/J.M. DeMatteis-Justice League Artists: Tony Harris-Starman Mike Mignola-Hellboy (did he draw 40 issues?) Steve Dillon-Preacher Kevin Maguire-Justice League Matt Wagner-Grendel (did he draw 40 issues?)
  25. My favorite little thing that I didn't notice when i read it at age 13 or so, but that I did notice at 18 was... Oh hell, let me do the spoiler thingey.
