Moonshine Vol. 1

Moonshine Vol. 1 Brian Azzarello, writer; Eduardo Risso, art & colors Image Comics, 2017 So great to see the 100 Bullets creative team reunited. The gangster theme here has similarities to the clandestine organization in the Vertigo series, as do the flawed noir characters and the extreme pulp-style violence. But the…See More

Mark Sullivan (Vertiginous Mod) replied to Mark Sullivan (Vertiginous Mod)'s discussion Royal City Vol. 1: Next Of Kin
"I did like it, although I would admit less than usual. I'm a Lemire fan, too. I'm certainly going to read the second trade before I give up on it."

Travis Herrick (Modular Mod) replied to Mark Sullivan (Vertiginous Mod)'s discussion Royal City Vol. 1: Next Of Kin
"How did you like this first trade? I read the first arc (which I believe is the first trade's worth), and a couple of the next arc. Personally, I just couldn't get into it, and I usually like Lemire's work."

Wandering Sensei: Moderator Man replied to Mark Sullivan (Vertiginous Mod)'s discussion Steve Niles' Winnebago Graveyard
"I enjoyed this series in a very weird way. It was fascinating, and you really are drawn into these characters. It's horrifying in a way that, IMHO, works so much better in comics than in movies."

I attended one panel discussion: "The New Power Generation of Comics" with Brian Michael Bendis, Ivan Brandon, Ed Brubaker, Jonathan Hickman, and Matt Fraction. Matt Brady of Newsarama attempted to moderate, with limited success (at one point Fraction turned a question around and basically interviewed Brady instead of the other way around). These writers all know each other, and had a good time tossing the questions around,… Continue

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.
