    This seems kind of dirty. Why can't comics companies just remain COMICS companies. It's sad to see a publisher with integrity walk down the path where graphic novels just serve as possible movie scripts.

    Comics can be good enough on their own. They don't need to be a vehicles to another medium. Top Shelf used to know that, lets hope they don't forget.

    What?! What is this non-sense? Top Shelf remains unchanged, it's still the same people in place aimed at providing the same product...but now at least they have a financial backer. I don't see what's dirty in it... except of you consider common sense decision business being dirty. Of course, I agree that it'd be nice if comic publisher could make it by their own, and surviving even through hard economic period... but heck, that isn't how things work in nowadays reality.

    I like the definitive statement that 'Too Cool To Be Forgotten' is considered to Alex Robinson's best work.

    By some, even by many, I'm sure, but it's not a consensus.
