Thanks to the power of the internet I have discovered that the great Jose Ortiz illustrated a number of Tex Willer stories. That not only reminded me that I still need to get that Kubert Tex story (it's on my ever growing list) but that Ortiz other western, Ken Parker, wrapped up recently (or so Eurocomic USA tell me on facebook). I love westerns, and any excuse to have more glorious Jose Ortiz on my shelf would be most welcome. So can someone pick up Ken Parker please? Or at least a best of Tex Willer release (their's 500 or so issues out at the moment, I wont hassle for a complete run!).

I've never heard of Ken Parker before and looking quickly on Amazon can't see any editions in English - shame as the covers are majestic. Will say the Tex story by Kubert which I've had for a while now is just okay. The art is exceptional but the story is very middle of the road.

Ken Parker has certainly grabbed my interest. Not only thanks to it's gorgeous art work but it's comparatively short life (50 volumes at 30 pages a pop) could make it a good choice for the next long running series picked up by IDW.

Anyway, review for Weekly Shonen Jump #19 is up. My exasperation with Bleach has reached an all time low. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

While my review for Meg 359 renders, enjoy a whole chapter of The House of Daemon (kindly uploaded by the official Ortiz memorial FB page. Loads of great comic page's on their, check it out). As you have probably noticed, i've gone a little Ortiz mad at the moment. But who wouldn't? The man was a legend. ;)

Ha! Only just realized my Meg review never uploaded as the render cancelled itself! Bloody thing! I'll upload it when I get home.

I also found this rather amusing webcomic that explains why I both love and hate cryptozoology...
