    Lethem sure uses a lot of big words!

    I've been looking forward to this since it was announced two years or so ago. I'm thrilled that it's finally here. Lethem is a great writer.

    Stephen King beat him to the draw.



    I kid of course. Seriously, it's great that this is coming out. But who here didn't write this book off at some point as vaporware?
    The Punisher: I’m going to cauterize your rectum, sealing it shut, so when you turn those delicious Pink Pants™ Fruit Pies into waste products the bilirubin in your feces will leach into your bloodstream and you’ll die screaming! And I’ll watch while having sex with this grateful prostitute!

    Trussed-Up Hooker: Blueberry are my favorite!

    In other words, what StoneGold said.

    I liked the original Omega when it started. That's when Steve Gerber was fresh off of Howard the Duck and the numero uno mover and shaker in comics.

    I don't know from Lethem, but he's got great credentials and a love for the concept. Glad he is doing this.
