    Probably pointless to respond to a week-old thread, but you're not the only one who gets thrown by comics in collections ending before you expect. I read almost everything in collected form, and I...

    I'm surprised you didn't mention the Vertigo version of Unknown Soldier by Joshua Dysart. The setting was Uganda in 2002, with the LRA playing a prominent part. It was fiction, but heavily...

    I've become a regular, re-reader, and I highly recommend it. I got started because I'm such a big Vertigo fan, and there just isn't enough current material to keep me busy. I did reread...

    Your wife is a charmer, all right! Only severe lack of funds stopped her from selling me a Grant Morrison book. Glad you enjoyed the show. I've been attending for several years, since I live in the...

    I was intrigued by "Saucer Country," so it's disappointing that it left you so cold. Comparing anything to "Seekers Into The Mystery" is a truly low blow! OTOH "The Manhattan Projects" sounds good....

    This is one of the most intelligent comic book columns I've ever read. Kind of took me by surprise, and I enjoyed that feeling. I agree that using authorial intent as the basis for criticism is a...

    I also think it's great that you're going for this. Never too late to learn, I say. I've been playing guitar semi-professionally since my teens, and my only regret is not finding a good teacher early...

    Boy, this topic never fails to generate heat. I have chosen to move to trades primarily...partly because my local comic shop is no longer very local, and partly for the convenience of the format. ...

    The column has been one of my favorite things to read in the whole comics Webverse, so I'm sorry to see it go. Glad to hear that you've got lots of work coming in. Thanks for the memories!

    I liked the first trade. I thought the art looked like vintage Veitch; I didn't see stiffness. Might be my memory playing tricks. I'll have to pull out some older stuff and compare.

    I agree. DC does seem to be finishing up canceled series in trades lately (ones for American Virgin and Testament have already been announced), so that's some consolation at least.

    You joke, but somewhere pigs are flying. DC has actually announced trades that collect the last of American Virgin (it's a big fat volume) and Testament. That's definitely something new, and since...

    Gross had been working on the series, so he jumped right in as writer. I thought Reiber was getting tired of the series towards the end, but the energy picked up when Gross took over. I liked his...

    I agree. It's hard to see what audience Vertigo is aiming at with the old properties. Longtime fans are likely to expect the original concepts, rather than these "reimaginings." Newer fans may not...

    Since I just finished buying my last missing Hellblazer issue at the Heroes Con this weekend, I'm out of the market for those trades. But I can see why there would be more interest in them, since...

    But size does matter. Seriously, I have trouble engaging with the art when it's really small. It doesn't completely stop me from enjoying the story, but it is a speed bump. And the thing about...

    I think it could have worked just fine without the twist. But the twist certainly took it out of the ordinary.

    Yeah, this is a bit of a head-scratcher. But I agree both series were a fun read (in fact I liked the sequel better than the original), so I'd recommend this new collection if you haven't bought it...

    I agree that it was visually striking; I thought the Hell scenes were especially effective. But I didn't care for it much, because I didn't find it very involving as a horror film. I didn't expect...

    Yes, and to anticipate the next question: the Jenkins run was very good. I think it's a shame none of it has been collected. Sean Phillips' art (through about 2/3 of the run) is still probably my...

    I don't listen to music while reading, either. Here's what I've listened to during the last week or so:

    Lee Morgan - Take Twelve
