I thought you guys might like to know that apparently Shade the Changing Man will be getting his own short in the upcoming Cartoon Network block DC Nation!
You can catch a very bried clip of Rac in action here;
I am very goddamn excited for this! I wonder if Peter had any involvement in it? Never thought I'd see a Vertigo character in a mainstream DC animation...

A poem about/inspired by Milligan, written by Grant Morrison! Once in a lifetime opportunity! Not that I'll be getting it at that price....!

I loved Milligan and Dillon's 'Skreemer' mini-series back then, too, but find it a little formulaic now. Perhaps he just dumbed down his style to suit the market too much, or something. I don't think Pete Milligan has been underrated so much as not raved about(and against!!) on the level of Moore, Morrison, Gaiman, et al, which I imagine suits him perfectly. He certainly isn't short of work, and he's having something of a renaissance at DC just now. My first contact with his work was at the tender age of 8, reading 'Bad Company' for the first time and when I think of reading classics like this and 'Halo Jones'(Yes, Tim Callahan it IS a classic!!!!)so young, its unsurprising that I drifted away from the comics scene in about 1995!
Has anyone been reading his Stormwatch? What's the consensus?

His one issue so far is already the best of the whole series. Definitely have high hopes for his run.
