"I really like that book. I found a copy of the original trade at a con a few years back, and I couldn't put it down. It's a terrific story."

"I rather liked this series, but I'm not sure if I will continue with it monthly. It seems like it would read better in trade. Either way, I do recommend it."

The Stone King

The Stone KingKel McDonald, writer; Tyler Crook, artistComiXology Originals, 2019I have been paying attention to the ComiXology Originals, but had completely overlooked this one. As a fan of Tyler Crook's art on B.P.R.D. and Harrow County I had to check out this fantasy story about a city called Stoneport, which has a vaguely Medieval feel to it. The protagonist Ave is a…See More

Luis Olavo de Moura Dantas replied to Mark Sullivan (Vertiginous Mod)'s discussion Swamp Thing: New Roots
"Good and doubtlessly influential as the reinvention / retcon by Alan Moore was, it led to a lot indeed of continuity baggage.  Restoring Swamp Thing to its basics is probably a wise move, both for novelty and for wide appeal at this point."

Two Moons Vol. 1: The Iron NooseJohn Arcudi, writer; Valerio Giangiordano, artist; Bill Crabtree, colors; Michael Heisler, lettersImage Comics, 2021I can't help thinking of this as a Dark Horse horror title. Not just because of Arcudi's work on Hellboy and B.P.R.D., but also the horrific artwork of Giangiordano (who is mainly known for Marvel Comics covers), which is so…See More

Heroes Convention 2009

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

After a late start, spent almost seven hours at the convention. 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.
