"Well, I tore through the TPB volumes 1-5 of 100 Bullets and am trying to find an affordable lot of books 7-13. (anyone wanna sell theirs?). I have a newfound respect for artist Eduardo Risso. Pretty decent crime comic!"
"The new artwork Marshall Rogers did for The Shadow of the Batman reprint series have always been some of my favorite wraparound covers. Number 4 is probably the technical masterpiece, but issue 5's atmospheric confronting Clay-Face atop a…"
"This documentary about the life and world-traversing of the late andformer Cream found and drummer, Ginger Baker. I've never got into his music or drumming, but was enthralled with this film. In full on YouTube.
Beware of Mr. Baker"
"Just finished this collection and enjoyed the entire read.
Issue #28 - Magic Banana. I caught on quickly Orson/Derek must not be consuming bananas, but I cannot figure out what he was eating instead? What Beth jettisons from the car…"
"I finished the collection (and the author notes in the back).
Killers is mostly unremarkable to me and one event - involving the hoarder guy who builds model ships -completely threw me for a loop. I'm going to revisit the collection and see if…"
"Wow, man. Thanks for your insight and time. After reading your recommend, I tried reading some issues online and will give the series some more attention.
I also checked out Risso and Trillo's Borderline. I'm finding the stark…"
"Also this weekend:
Bonnie and Clyde - Never before saw this 1967 film. It was pretty good with an hysterical, extended scene with Gene Wilder.
The Highwaymen - my sis informed me this was the Bonnie and Clyde story told from another…"
"Thoughts on 100 Bullets? I've never read the series, but understand it ran for a hundred issues.
Is it a decent crime comic or does it veer too much into fantasy/fantastical? I'm not crazy for its art, but could probably tolerate it."
"Finally had a chance to see Border. Not at all what I expected, though I was anticipating something unique and Border delivered. The heroine is now one of my favorites. Good film. Not outstanding, but definitely something to check…"
"Cool stuff. I'm not a country music fan, but do enjoy seeing how all things America developed in our country. I may have to check it out. I do love bluegrass, though. Surely the documentary covers some blue grass or cajun and/or zydeco?"
"Thanks, Jeff of Earth-J. This forum is one of the few with a Stray Bullet discussion and I dig the folks I've encountered!
I finished off the collection last night. Really good story arc with Lapham taking things in a new territory, but with…"
"Two more fantastic issues. I don't know where Lapham thinks this stuff up - especially the Bamboozled events. Quite excited to continue reading and witness who everything collides together and/or falls apart."
"Great issue. That opening scene of Virginia and the jock fighting in the rain was fantastic. Then she goes and does a sort of Yojimbo on the two high school factions. Virginia's too cool.
I own Uber Alles but was so disappointed with the…"
"This summer I attempted reading all four volumes of The Book of the New Sun by Gene Wolfe.
I finished Shadow of the Torturer and The Sword of the Lictor and just lost steam/interest.
I tried. I really did..."
"Awesome. Never heard of Misty, Leopard of Lime Street nor El Mestizo, but I will definitely check them out fully at some point. Browsing a bit, El Mestizo* looks pretty good!
Used book stores in the late 90s got me hooked on a…"
"I was just today searching about for some Lupin III books from Tokyopop (Unfortunately, they're OOP and have high prices) and recalled Monkey Punch passing away earlier this year. R.I.P.
Hoping Lupin III gets a re-release someday."
