Exit Stage Left #1-Mark Russell does it again! I thought that after the near-masterpiece that was his version of the Flintstones that his Snagglepuss could only end up a disappointment.

As I read it, I pondered whether this was shaping up to be even better than his Flintstones. My conclusion upon finishing this first issue is that perhaps he may.

There's quite a bit of historical figures and events in this first issue which wasn't possible with the Flintstones (regardless of the fact that Thorstein Veblen was able to guest-star).

This would probably have to be my comic book pick of 2018, so far. he he

I got the two trades collecting Garth Ennis' run on The Demon as Christmas presents and enjoyed them both, serve as a nice prequel to his Hitman series.

Did they put those out at the same time as the collection of Kirby's original series, or have they been available for a while?

I decided to look it up. They came out before the Jack Kirby collection. The Ennis collections are from 2015, while the Kirby book is from 2017. DC also released the Wagner 1980s mini-series in a TPB the year before they released the Ennis books.

Young Animal - one year later three of the original books are being re-launched and Way's Doom Patrol's perennial delays are pretty much a running gag at this point.

Seems Christian was right in this thread when he speculated that DC was trying to kill Alan Moore... because now it looks like Promethea is being added to the DC Universe as well!

Oh, that is just sad. I will not be reading that.

"What's that? You say you want to travel along the sephirah from Malkhut to Keter, immanentize the eschaton, and reveal the Ein Sof? Well, ok, but we were just going to punch the Injustice League."
