October 19, 2012 2:54 am Any Mignola-verse book (BPRD, Baltimore, Hellboy) Archer & Armstrong, X-O Manowar, Rachel Rising, Prophet, Manhattan Projects, SAGA, Pigs (when it comes out), Secret Service, Peter Panzerfaust, Planet of the Apes: Cataclysm, Saucer Country, Conan the Barbarian, Mudman, The Massive, and anything by Roger Langridge. That guy deserves more props.

February 14, 2012 7:08 pm Like Josh, I was introduced to John Severin's work through Cracked as a child. Severin was one of the first comic artists whose name I made sure to remember and whose work I made sure to recognize. I was strangely obsessed with Severin's renditions of Tom Selleck. The man did so much, and it's exciting to know there is plenty out there to be found.
February 13, 2012 3:07 am The story is well done, but it was the art that pushed it over the edge for me as my POTW.
January 19, 2012 11:29 pm Haunt did it too with Joe Casey and Nathan Fox. I'm really digging that book now and had absolutely zero interest in it before. With that said, i'll probably go back and pick up Prophet too. Another character I know nothing about, but it seems like they know what they're doing over at Image.
January 19, 2012 11:14 pm I would guess he's tripping on the water. We see the disorientation that Batman sees, because we don't know any more than he does about the Courtship of the Owl. Which is awesome. Or they could just be turning Batman into an owl creature. Who knows? I guess we will in thirty Bat-Days.
January 19, 2012 10:30 pm The fight scenes reminded me of Alan Davis pencils. That's not a complaint. If it wasn't for the art, I would have given this a 3. It seems like Higgins has Dick's characterization down fine, but it's the scenarios presented that aren't grabbing me. It's the exact same problem i'm having with Amazing Spider-Man. I prefer Higgins on Deathstroke, but that thing's about to get Liefelded.
