"Yeah, Milligan is never less than clever, is he? I picked it up cheap during one of Comixology's Vertigo sales, and I would recommend it."

Rob Staeger (Grodd Mod) replied to Mark Sullivan (Vertiginous Mod)'s discussion New Romancer (Peter Milligan & Brett Parson)
"This one sounded like fun to me, but I passed on it for money reasons, and I never heard any buzz about it after the fact. It sounds like something I'd enjoy, though. And man, the pun of the title is just delicious."

Mark Sullivan (Vertiginous Mod) replied to Rob Staeger (Grodd Mod)'s discussion Dan Didio no longer at DC
"No one would like to see Vertigo return more than me, but I'll be surprised if it happens. I agree that it was a strong brand during much of its run, even during periods when it was having trouble finding hits. But the imprint floundered so…"

Heroes Convention 2009

Posted on June 19, 2009 at 11:26pm 2 Comments

Thanks, Mark. Just clearing up a question a friend made of me about the review of Don Quixote (I'm NOT that Rob Davis). This looks like a fun place, though I doubt I'll have much time to visit often.
