    I still enjoy it, but reading it all at once shows me the growth curve a little better. I can see how things change, always for the better. So it's important to point out where it falters to show...

    Yeah, the book has morphed over its lifespan, though I don't think that's a bad thing. It's always been about the survivors and it's natural that they'd move from being people just hoping to get by...

    I like to think of the art as being "in the J. Scott Campbell style," and that takes care of all those worries.

    It's like worrying that a Jack Kirby character would be a poor typist with those...

    Read "Clockwerks" from Humanoids, a new OGN that's basically steampunk. Nice enough idea with some apparently good art, but it's all ruined by one of those awful muddy coloring jobs that destroys...

    Apple only allows in-app purchases in increments of $x.99. So I'm guessing the cover price of the comic is normally $3.50, and that's what Image is charging. When it comes to pricing it for the App...

    The third "Lord of the Rings" movie did have a bunch of endings, but they were all still conclusions. And, yes, there's the old cliche where the hand reaches up from the guy we thought was killed in...

    I'm looking forward to the upcoming oversized hardcover collection of the series' first 11 issues. I'll probably review that, though it's not due out until the end of the year.

    Yeah, and that bothers me now to get a simple number like that wrong. I think my original slug for the article had some sort of modifier in it ("More than" or "Just over", maybe), but then I kept...

    There was, indeed, one print collection of the series. Thin thing, like a $6 book, really. I forget the details on who published it, though.

    Oh, wait, duh, Amazon:

    P.S. Another five years of writing all my message board posts in French and I should be able to start reading the comics that way, too. =)

    I think "Saga" will read best in the trade. I liked the first issue, but didn't feel like I had the tone of the series fixed in my mind until about the third. Getting to read all six issues in one...
