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‹?

Frank Quiltey

Went to see Frank Quitely at the Borders Book Festival today and got him to sign my All-Star Superman book. Nice.

X-Oh Manohwar

On to issue 13 of Matt Kindt’s X-O Manowar and the quality still hasn’t dropped on this series. Let’s see if this survives the DMG Entertainment purchase…

Had myself a shiny XXV

Had this for a long time and never realised how nice the art was (particularly in foil).

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.

Behe Moths World

Always liked this picture by Richard Clifton-Dey.

RIP Bob

Bit late in getting the news, but Bob Wakelin died 20/01/2018. His illustrations were a bright spot in the 80’s when most game art was utter bobbins (Oliver Frey being an exception). I have some signed prints of his art … Continue reading

Rick Bjaker

A rather fine 1/1 Joker bust by childhood hero Rick Baker. I would argue that it should be modelled in latex.

Moanstress 15 Variant

Need to try and get this when #15 is published. But probably not.

Xerxes

Frank Miller is threatening to release Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander at some point this year (or at least start it). I’m not sure Frank has it in him to complete Xerxes, … Continue reading

Leather 44

I put off reading the last few issues of Letter 44 for a while. Probably expecting it to fizzle out like so many other series. It didn’t really, and I enjoyed issue 35 as much as I did issue 1.

Afraid of the Bill

Never seen this image or film before. Suspect the poster may be the best bit about it.

Jim Baikie

Flippy neck. Sadly Jim Baikie died December 21st. Artist on Skizz and the underrated New Statesmen. John Smith was unfortunate not to get much US work back in the day. Should really pick up his more recent stuff, and have … Continue reading

Aliens: Dead Schnorbitz

Finally got issue 4 of Dead Orbit. Was like a low budget Alien horror movie, but in a good way. A “destined to become a cult classic” kind of film.

Aquaman 32

More sterling work from Joshua Middleton.

Five Ghouls

Strangely creepy. Not Aleister.

Hellboy In Library Hell Edition

Or Hellboy Library Edition Volume 7, as I like to think of it. Before reading it, I have decided to go back and read Volume 1 onwards. Maybe the End won’t appear as suddenly as it did when buying the … Continue reading

It appears that Rick Veitch has been publishing comics that have passed me by. Well, no more, I say. First up: Boy Maximortal.
