    Thanks!
    Just 64 pages. There's a recent 100 page Giant that collects it and a few odds and ends. Definitely worth picking up.

    They should do a 100 page Giant of Girl (or even better, a proper trade.)

    They should just collect all/most of Milligan's minis into one single trade.

    Thanks for the info, B. Kuwanger and FanboyStranger. I guess I'll reserve that particular copy then!

    Do you know why he did all that one-off stuff (Face, The Eaters)? Was it always planned like that, or did he/DC not want to follow them up?

    Always planned that way. All of the "Vertigo Voices" stuff (Face, Tainted, The Eaters) were 64 page one-shots.

    Since you are all big fans of Milligan's work, any interest in his upcoming 4-Part story for Legends of the Dark Knight?

    Girl remains of the greatest things i've ever read. Definitely in the top-two of my favorite comics ever.

    It's so undiscovered. Even amongst many Milligan fans, it's the odd book out. I think it got overshadowed by Kill Your Boyfriend, which deals with similiar themes, but I like Girl more.

    Another Milligan book that needs to be collected is Vertigo Pop!: London. VP!: Tokyo and VP!: Bangkok got a combined tpb, and they were nowhere near as good as London.

    Read and finished the X-Statix Omnibus. Man, that was a great read. Loved every single issue and loved all the characters. Milligan wrote them all so damn well and found great ways to make them stand out on their own and bring them to life. Despite being fame whores and usually unlikable, there was still a lot about these characters that made you fall for them. And you wouldn't believe how pissed or disappointed I was when a character would be killed off.

    I can say that my favorite characters were The Spike and Phat. LOOOVED The Dead Girl/Dr. Strange mini.

    Thoughts on X-Statix?

    It's the only X-Run I've liked.

    Did someone says Girl!? One of the best mini-Milligan books ever created!

    If that is going to be collected then Face NEEDS to be in that collection.

    Looks like Milligan is off all his DC books now...

    To be honest his New 52 work, while I enjoyed most of what I read, wasn't really what I'd say is anywhere around his best work. If this leads to him doing something new at Vertigo or Image or whatever, or just being put on a new DC series where he can really go wild, I'd be fine with it.

    EDIT: I'd love it if he could get something like China Mieville has done, his own fairly self-contained title in the Dark line utilising some DC concepts.

    I'm enjoying his short Batman stories, actually. I wouldn't mind him going to Batman Inc or Batman and Robin; something less overtly superheroic.
