It lines up timing wise with when she got the photo back from Bruc. Also, regarding the Supernan homage in the alley, notice the close up of her crushing the disguise glasses, which Etta made fun of earlier. That seemed like a loaded little nod towards did Supetmsn as well.
May 7, 2017 6:11 pm Just an FYI since you guys liked the 1st issue of Guardians, you should checkout the FCBD issue that came out this week. Same creative team, original story, and I thought it was actually better than the issue proper.
February 8, 2016 7:43 pm Just an FYI regarding War Corner. There's actually a third Ennis war book being published, this time by AfterShock (yeah, I dunno) and entitled "Dreaming Eagles". It's written by Ennis with art by SImon Colby, of Royals fame, and revolves around an old man telling a younger man about the Tuskegee Airmen. It's two issues in.
February 1, 2016 12:45 pm Has it been brought up anywhere that the current Spider-Woman arc is essentially about a barely allegorical attack on a Planned Parenthood office? And that's not even touching the fact that the extremist Skrulls are trying to hijack a prince who might one day be a king of kings. If that's not intentional, fine, it works as a great story either way, but if it is, holy shit, nice on Hopeless for sneaking that in there.

I gave in and thus far, it's been worth the gamble. Fingers crossed.

I'm having a hard time trusting the guy who co-created Pretty Baby Machine to finish another comic that sounds like a movie pitch.

June 7, 2010 10:44 am I'd like to point out that thre was also a 'hurm' in this week's Franken-Castle (at the cemetary, right before the karate pepple show up). That one seems more on the nose if you ask me...

I have a strong feeling that what's in the bag wasn't money but something else that will make Jepperd's decision a little more complicated. Meds? Food? The small corpse of his own animal kid that he can now bury?

Stopped buying this as of this issue but read it at the shop. If word of mouth keeps getting better, I'll be back though.

Not exactly a defense of the story, because as it stands, it's pretty choppy, but originally this was supposed to be a 10 issue mini (maybe even more than that back when it was originally a Vertigo series several years before it finally came out as a Wildstorm book). And then it went down to 6, and then down to 4, plus a super-sized special. So clearly Brett Lewis had to summarize a lot in a very short space, which is a shame.

Speaking of Brett Lewis, has anyone else ever heard of him? I remember doing a search back when issue 4 came out and I couldn't find anything, mostly because it's a pretty common name. I'd love to see if his knack for dialogue translates over into other works.

Also, if you liked the cold war/super powers thing, you should try Wildstorm's 'Programme". Similar in tone if not in style, but definitely an example of the interesting Peter Milligan that wrote Shade and Enigma and is now killing it on Hellblazer.

November 23, 2009 4:47 pm It's fantastic, but rushed at the end as the length of the series kept getting short and shorter. The are and dialog make it easy to look past that though.
