  1. Thoughts on this?

  2. like pete milligan, never heard of tomm coker, if only aja was doing the interiors too

  3. @wangman31888  Coker is great. Here are some preview pages.

  4. @Conor you just sold me with that preview art

  5. I’ve been looking forward to this since Paul posted that preview back in January.  Looks so good.

  6. Oh yea, liked Coker’s Daredevil Noir work, hope this will be like Samurai Shamploo or something.

  7. Im really surprised this book isn’t getting more love especially at 2.99.

  8. The concept is too much to pass up.

  9. @drdeeeznutz  I am and I’m not. It is $2.99 and a great sounding concept but Milligan isn’t always a consistent creator and it’s a weekly title from what I understand (that is it’s coming out every week for 5 weeks), so some might just wait for the trade thinking that it’ll come out relatively soon. I was originally in that boat but I do like Milligan and the concept and the art and the covers wone me over, plus I feel that I should support the books I like in their monthly(weekly in this case) format.

  10. Didn’t know it was a weekly book @ MegaPhilip -thanks for the info –but the previews i saw of this blew my mind. I can see people trade waiting for this but I guess I just geeked out and thought more people would too,

  11. holy sh!t! This looks awesome. Going on lunch break tomorrow to grab this. Hope that shop has it… thanks for the preview, Conor. 

  12. Really dig the art and setting for this. Great stuff 🙂

  13. I really enjoyed both the art and story. I will definitely pick up the next one, and probably the whole series. I love alternate history stories like this. Nice twists, good re-imagining of the character. I liked the previews of the upcoming issues as well, this looks classy. And $2.99! It would be great at $3.99, so that makes it 5/5.

  14. The heck was that?  Incredible art, but was that like Wolverine triplets?  Hope Coker will be doing all of these.
