April 24, 2012 6:19 am Is this the Gambino issue? I can't flipping wait for that!
March 31, 2012 6:19 pm Got a couple of original pages framed on my wall, I look forward to seeing the comparison. I'll be buying them regardless, but I don't think that colouring them is particularly necessary.
March 31, 2012 6:17 pm Literally flew to Paris for one night just to see Gambino as the London show two days later had sold out. When I got back I decided to drive to London anyway on a punt. Managed to get chatting with the bassist and drummer and they got me in. It was a rad week. LDB is one of my favourite books already so this news just damn near gave me a semi.
March 23, 2012 10:56 am I find the "tried it, didn't like it" thought crazy. It's comics, no different to anything else your reading. You may not have liked what you read but it's stupid to dismiss the entire format due to that. That's as bad as saying you don't like western comics because all you read was Fear Itself. Art styles vary. Genres vary. Quality varies. It's all comics people. Don't dismiss it outright. Your doing a huge disservice to yourself.
March 22, 2012 12:46 pm Pluto is fantastic! Something about it just feels... important.
March 22, 2012 12:43 pm I've been having the same feelings recently. I work in a comic shop and find it hard to get even the broadest taste comics readers to try manga. There are some great series out there though. For fans for Vertigo style books the Viz Sig imprint has a few series well worth checking out. After having it on my list of shame for years I checked out 20th Century Boys just after Christmas and proceeded to tear through 18 volumes over the course of 2 weeks. I was hooked. The feeling I got from reading through those volumes is a feeling I haven't experienced since first reading Y The Last Man. The story is huge and spans generations but you never feel lost while reading. There are currently 19 volumes available and the series will run for 24. It may seem daunting but it is so worth it.
February 20, 2012 5:02 pm Woo! Been waiting for Angelo's book for a while now! Check it out everybody.
July 23, 2011 9:38 pm I'd love to see a New Mutants series later on but I'm super excited for AKA! Alias was incredibe and having Luke in the show is one step closer to having Iron Fist on screen and that makes me happy!
