Golden Brown

High risk mission. Just about to read this, and if Frank can keep it together, the art should see it through. Update: It’s okay.

Last Last Knight

Mr Synder didn’t disappoint in Book 3 by referencing one of his own most blatant BatSnyderisms: “Gotham is…” Yes, it is.

Last Knight a D.J. saved my life

No 2 in the bank and requisite Snyder Batmanerism for this book: “In ancient times scarecrows weren’t just for scaring off pests.” Nopes, they were also all for a cup o’ tea an’ a slice o’ cake. Bum-swizzled

Batman: Last Knight, she said

Last Knight Book 1 read and enjoyed. Opening ‘Bat-Snyderism’ present and correct: “I’ll tell you a secret about him. About Batman. You know where he feels alarm?” His Gout, apparently.

Twisted Deflection

While browsing the Modern Horizons Grand Art Tour, I came across this image of Twisted Reflection (one of the foils I bought). Except it isn’t a reflection. Possibly. I never noticed the hand/claw coming out of the water. Cool.

Spawn #30001

Not Bill’s absolute best, and doesn’t even tempt me into wasting my money on a Spawn comic.

City of Udders

I bought the City of Others (10th Anniversary Edition) as I missed it first time around, and it’s always worth it for Bernie Wrightson art. Except his [awesome] pencils were coloured directly with no inking. Certain pages were splendid, like … Continue reading

As I might have hoped, Matt Wagner returns to Grendel after completing Mage. October though…

I Don’t Want…

…Usagi to go to IDW in full colour. What about the Dark Horse Saga hardcovers I have invested in? Still, better than no Usagi Yojimbo at all.

The Leen Grantern

Even though I had the standard issue put aside, I ended up buying this variant too. This felt a bit 2000AD. Old school with Oliff on colours too. We’ll see how this [irregularly] progresses.

Dave does Venom

Venom 11 variant by Dave Gibbons. Feels a bit weird, to be honest.

Carlos Ezquerra

Sad news that Carlos Ezquerra has died at 70. He may have designed Dredd, but it’s Strontium Dog I associate with him.
