    October 24, 2010 12:20 pm I just read Parker: The Hunter along with this yesterday, and they both really were outstanding.  I've ordered a couple more copies of The Hunter to give to friends, largely to use as non-comic-reader bait.  Just an amazing pair of books that almost any reader could enjoy.
    October 23, 2010 1:50 am This was so good. I felt like there was really alot of plot progression in a short span here, compared to previous issues.  It threw us into a jarring new pace before unleashing several quick turns.  The confusion I felt in the panel sequence where it briefly seemed like Rick was shot, followed by Rick's confident follow-through and then the depiction of the utter decimation of the newcomers was great.  The feeling of "Oh wow!  They're so SCREWED!" when I realized the gunfire would attract roamers and that the newcomers had nowhere to go, was just perfect.  Definitely my POTW.
    September 28, 2010 3:06 am I had the pleasure of Amanda doing a Powergirl like that for me at SDCC, and it was really remarkable how quickly she put it together.  I can't remember the order in which she did the different components (bust, hair, lips, and facial features), but I remember that the first few didn't make sense on their own, and then she added a few quick strokes and suddenly it was a sketch of Powergirl.  I was shocked at how it came together.  It was really awesome, and she did it effortlessly while carrying on a conversation about her upcoming work, facebook, and a bunch of other stuff.  She's ridiculously talented.
    September 14, 2010 12:13 am Damn, didn't read the previous comments before my posting.  Just to chime in, I loved Transmet from my early days of comic reading, and still love it to this day.  I re-read it just a few weeks ago, and I really adore it.  It's the kind of thing where if you're a writer yourself, in any field, it instantly clicks with you.  The art was a great fit for the story and character portrayals.

    This is how I felt about Watchmen the first time I read it: I had virtually no experience with the medium and the slow pace just wrecked me on my first reading (though I did get through it, putting it down several times along the way).  Ten years and hundreds of comics later, I definitely feel a taaad different about what is now one of my favorite books.  

     It's also how I felt about Box Office Poison just last year when I took my first run at it, but I may give that another shot soon.  I seriously only lasted about 20 pages with that thing.

    August 11, 2010 10:55 am I feel like this could wind up being an intriguingly meta piece of work, given Morrison's emphasis on the "branding" concept.  Looking forward to it.
    July 9, 2010 4:03 am Oh god I can't wait for the Shadowland: Bullseye Funeral For A Friend book advertised at the end of this.  I hope it's a panel-for-panel reprinting of the Sentry funeral book with slightly tweaked text.
    July 1, 2010 7:59 pm The Dex-Starr part really exceeded expectations.  I was anticipating something goofy and instead got a really touching story that accomplished alot in just a few pages. POTW for me.

    Okay, so I've gone through, dissected the book, found what I believe to be every hidden playing card reference, and... I still have no idea who the visitor was.  Did anybody else figure it out? 

    June 1, 2010 11:54 pm I hated the movie adaptation of The Spirit, and hated lots of other Frank Miller projects.  I loved several others.  Regardless, I'm not passing judgment on the 300 Prequel because it /isn't/ /out/ /yet/.  I don't understand why anyone would start rabble-rousing the moment a project is barely announced.  o_O
