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.

Not sure how I feel about the set yet, but there’s some nice art.
Not any Werewolves though.

It was just after this that my Gahz’rilla died and I lost the game. A tear was shed.

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, not really focusing on one thing or another, and the art passed by like a static slideshow. Nevertheless, any new Frank Miller comic should be enjoyed.
And I did, a bit.

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).

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 substance, so I had some concerns, especially not being aware of Enrico Marini before.

I enjoyed it, regardless of other reviews. In the review linked, they have a few complaints, including the low page count. Aren’t most European comics like this? At least the ones I have (comics like Le Monde d’Edena that took most of a lifetime not withstanding).
It could simply be that I’m a bit old fashioned. I didn’t find anything outstandingly sexist in it.

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 impressive in 1979.
