Bill New Mutants

Disgustingly had to pay over the odds for this. Just going to read it now. And by “read” I mean look at.

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.

Stanley Talbain

I didn’t realise Stanley “Arsgerm” Lau had done as much Capcom work.

Spawn #30001

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

The End

So, just about to read Alan Moore (and Kevin O’Neill’s) last comic? Oh woe.

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…

That doesn’t look promising.

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.

3 is a magic number

Missed this first time round. It’s all rather sad (but good).

Xerx-Men

So Frank Miller managed to put out all five issues of Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander. It certainly read quite Miller-esque, and looked reasonably Miller-esque. The story itself was a little disjointed, … Continue reading

Showering Cowboy

It’s a sad day when it’s easier and cheaper to buy the Start Trek hardcover, than it is to buy the only issue I’m missing from the original series (No 7).

Give yourself a another basic shiny XXXVIIII

Best Land in the set, and looking good in my spirit deck.

What’s better than a Frank Cho picture? A picture by Frank Cho and Gerhard. Nice.
