  1. Perfect guest artist for this book. Really excited for it!

  2. i’d’ve left a comment about that I just bought volume 1 and 2 from Amazon and I’m excited to read this series. but i got an auto-chastisement from “HAL-5000” that I’m, “articulating comments too quickly.” and then my comments were summarily consigned to oblivion. I’ve had other piccayune monitoring violations, but i don’t have time to waste on triffles. Great job boys on this new site of yours! Did you consult with some hyper liberal think tank that wants to protect us from our first ammendment rights?

    This new and improved site is slower and more constrained by big brother. No wonder wizened people don’t like change.

  3. DAMMIT! my store didn’t get this in!

  4. This is such a fun and creative book. Great guest artist too. It took a few pages before I even noticed.

  5. Oh man, I want a spin off Asher Cobb book!

  6. I really liked this issue a lot. 5/5. A great creepy, tragic story giving us the background of the giant mummy. I kept wondering “A giant mummy? Where the hell did that come from?” Now I know! I also did not notice the change in artist.

    It didn’t hurt that I just came back from the TAOM convention and attended a “Bizarre Magic” show where several performers did their acts in the style of an Old West medicine show.

  7. Awesome issue. As a side note, did anyone else think that the quality of the pages or the printing process were even better than before? Something changed for the better as it all used to look great, but the inks and colors just popped so vibrantly this issue. I hope Oni Press continues that aspect of quality to their physical comics, wow.

    • Ya know, I *did* notice that too. I looked at the page from the side, with the light glaring on it, and it looked like really high quality paper. Not sure it it was the paper, the ink, the process – but the craftsmanship on this was excellent. I feel much better paying $3.99 for a book of this quality than I do for one of those skimpy Ultimate Comics polybagged 20-pagers!
