Anyone arguing ten quid for a hardcover 200–250 page trade is expensive is nuts

Indeed, the Star Wars Mara Jade graphic novel I mentioned as an example is 144 pages, softcover and now costs £16.99 new, it cost £11.99 when first released in 1999.  Compared to the 2000ad and Dredd books that is fairly expensive.

Once again I've been ignoring the woes of Matt Murdock BUT finally got around to a long time coming re-re-re-re-re-read of Frank Miller and Klaus Janson's run (well up to the end of the Angel Dust arc at least).

Anyway I thought I'd been pretty down on that run in this thread on a number of occasions and the last couple of times I've read it I don't think its held up too well and hasn't aged as well as the Nocenti run a few years later. Well that still holds but this time, reading my digital copies for the first time, I actually think it hold up better than I remember.

Firstly its still visually as stunning as ever and Miller greatly enhanched by Janson's perfect noir inks does some stunning, simply stunning work. Its visually inventive and the storytelling is second to none. The Eisner influences are many fold and clear, but if you are going to wear your influences so clearly on your sleeves you could choice a lot wore.

Storywise it is more creaky and while its still nicely plotted, dramatic and exciting it suffers from having so much influence on works that have been able to build on what its done, but learning and able to aim at an older more developed audience. It can feel hocky at time... but a good kinda hocky.

So yes I'm very pleased I've read this again. Will be picking up the bits I'm missing and over all hold up better this time than it has on recent re-reads.

Re: Button Man film...

Voice changer. Problem solved.

Voice is changed, but the words aren't.

It's obviously very important what I think and this is what it is; tell the story to its conclusion no matter what it is, don't plan for sequals. If this does ok then it opens the door for other 2000ad properties rather than a sequal.
