June 3, 2010 10:39 pm I like the first series a whole lot more than you did.  I'm not sure if I'll pick this series up or just wait for the trade.
May 27, 2010 1:01 am Could not agree more.  This is a book to be treasured, and passed down to your kids.  EVERYONE should at the very least give this a serious look.
April 28, 2010 2:25 am I'm also disappointed that this wont include DC One Million; hopefully DC will slot this into a deluxe edition soon.

Too many books to list these week--definitely a wallet-breaker.

 BQ--If I murdered someone (and if I DID they probably had it coming) I'd hope against hope that Kelso the cop from PLAN 9 was put on the case.  Worst scenario--anybody written by Bendis or Rucka.

March 16, 2010 12:18 am BQ:  Pong and my favorite game on it was Pong.

@daccampo--At the time, the head-exploding bit was the most horrifying thing I'd ever seen.  Me and my best bud somehow cajoled his mother into taking us to see it after reading about it in FAMOUS MONSTERS and FANGO.  And Michael Ironside is a total badass, sooo good in Scanners and Starship Troopers and, um, Spacehunter Advs in the Forbidden Zone.

My pick this week--Supergirl.

November 21, 2009 3:16 pm I haven't seen Brian Blessed in anything for a long time, but his Voltan made me a fan for life.  Twenty-five years ago he would have been the PERFECT Volstagg.  Kirby's run on Thor are my favorite Marvel comics of all time, the cast looks terrific (I'd forsake Asgard for Natalie Portman any day of the week) and Branagh's work is almost always inspired.  I'm really looking forward to this film.

I remember watching an ANTHRAX concert video back in the late 80's/early 90's and Scott Ian had a copy of The Killing Joke with him backstage, showing it to the camera and calling it 'the greatest comic ever'.  And Alex Ross painted the cover for their last album.  Ian's never been shy about his love for comics.

BPRD was my pick, too, edging ahead of Hellboy and Batman/Doc Savage for the win.  I buy the Hellboy Universe books every time they offer them--singles, trades and Library Editions.  I can't help myself!  In a sea of great comics, I love the Mignolaverse the most.  In a previous Hellboy/BPRD lettercol, if I'm remembering correctly, Editor Scott Allie had said they had plans for BPRD, but not in hardcover, which is a shame.

And if you have the inclination, check out the Fantagraphics Ditko book that came out today.  I buy a lot of collected editions (usually 2 - 4 a week) and I can tell this is gonna be near the top of my 'best of the year' list.
