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.

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).

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

Bathomme: Dank Prince Charmling

Batman: The Dark Prince Charming There was a fair gap between book one and book two, but it wasn’t until I had both that I took the shrink warp off either of them. European comics can often be style over … Continue reading

The Swords of Heaving, Flowers off Hell

Forgot I was getting this. Seems like a strange paper choice for the painted art, but suspect it might not benefit from a glossy finish. I hope it’s good. EREKOSĂ‹? Update: I did enjoy this, and would have been fairly … Continue reading

X-Oh Manohwar

The Life Of Captain Marble #1

Another comic I don’t fancy reading, but a mighty fine cover by Julian Totino Tedesco.

Dume Patrole

I have no interest in the current Doom Patrol, and less in any other Young Animal output, but I do like this picture. Grant Morrison will be turning in his grave.
