Name: Jeff Ferguson

Bio: after reading my first tattered and handed down copy of x-men in the late 80's, i was hooked. came of age in the speculation boom of the early 90's when my friends and i bought anything and everything "special edition, foil, limited, or in original package." during highschool and college, was preoccupied with girls and booze, like you do. after graduating college in '03, got back into comics on a whim and a chance trip to midtown comics. now i stay up entirely too late and spend entirely to much money on my only addiction. the rest of my time is spent as a visual effects artist in manhattan, going to movies, playing xbox, and trying to convince my wife that $40 a week on comics is a necessary expenditure.

    Sometimes when I read 20 comics in a week, every week, I tend to forget some story details from publisher to publisher, and book to book. Considering this is a brand new story with new characters for my brain to process, I haven't forgetten any details and am riveted from issue to issue. This book rocks.

     

    April 3, 2008 10:09 am I do know this story, but I like the extra details here. I picked up Kali ish#1 (Temple of Doom inspiration) but I really wasn't feeling it. But I enjoyed this much more. Action, drama, enlightenment, what's not to like.
    March 6, 2008 7:28 pm I enjoyed it. Jeff Smith is drawing this comic as if he's looking through a move camera, with match cuts, and time jumps, etc. I really liked the setup of this one. This story, like Bone, seems to have a dream like quality to it. From the wacky drift jumping suit, to the weird Burroughs-esque lizard man who is chasing him. The story is one part noir, one part sci-fi, and one part dreamscape. You keep feeling like the main character is going to wake up at any moment. I love Smith's ability to capture the fantastic. Maybe he gets this shit from his dreams.

    Just read it yesturday, I love this damn book. Josh said it right, this is everything that is good about comics. It's one of the few comics that is written for adults and I think Brubaker is the best freakin big time writer out there today. I love the  "magazine" aspect and all of the extras. It's one of the few times when I get that 'Stan Lee-esque "get the reader involved"' feeling when Brubaker tells us 'thanks for supporting the monthly format.' I really want to read all of the suggested books and watch all the movies.

    March 3, 2008 12:46 am Sweet! What a showdown. Always a good time when there's trouble-a-brewing in biblical proporations. I only recently jumped onto this series and I'm already into it, with little to no knowledge of these characters or their history, other that Superman.

    March 2, 2008 11:51 pm Wow. I just read this and freakin loved it. It took every typical comic book image from the opening hero sequence, to the mother's death, to the "bad guy" confrontation, and turned them on their heads. I have to disagree with those not likeing the pop-culture references. In this story, it grounds it in a reality that we all know and discuss. This character is literally one of us, even mentioning the comic web chat boards. Seriously, who on this website has never had the thought 'I wonder why no one has ever put on a mask and tried to help people in real life?'

    February 25, 2008 12:08 am I don't remember ever reading any grendel before this mini. But, i'm digging this story. The multiple threads of the story are winding tighter with each issue. some crazy shit's gonna go down pretty soon.
