Got my hands on Dial H today.  Tipping my hat to Mieville and Santoluco, that's one hell of a good comic.  Was instantly reminded of Moore, Veitch, Alcala and Totleben's work in Swamp Thing 51-53ish - it's that good.  I'm generally a Mieville fan, but had no idea if he'd work out in comics:  he does.

Schedual change.
Have been called up to baby-sit while parents go on fancy weekend aways, wrinkly old prunes.  >:(
Would someone mind grabbing a copy of the 2000AD special for me?
I'll be more than happy to pay P'n'P for it.

Yeah, this was really fun. Very strong first issue.

Aye, it was nae bad. A wee bit Grant Morrison-y (Doom Patrol-era) though not as good as that. Still, promising debut.

NEW COMICS SHIPPING THE WEEK OF 05-09-12

My Pulls
2000 AD #1778 (considering the last Prog I got was 1775 I'm pretty sure this will not be coming out this week. But hopefully 1776 or 1777 will)
DEMON KNIGHTS #9 Preview (probably my last issue. Its a good series, but just not good enough I'm afraid)
FAIREST #3 Preview (good series so far. More Fables is always good)
INVINCIBLE #91 Preview
LEGION LOST #9 Preview (Tom Defalco is doing a good job so far, the Teen Titans Annual wasn't bad and dropped a few twists on the lost Legionnaires laps. Rather anxious for this Culling crossover to end so we can get back to the Legion's story)
MYSTERY IN SPACE #1 (another Vertigo anthology one-shot. The last two were pretty good, this one should be good)
RESURRECTION MAN #9 Preview Good series, not dropping it.)
WALKING DEAD #97 Preview

For me:

Atomic Robo: Ghost Of Station X TP

Batman - Court Of Owls HC

Lobster Johnson - The Burning Hand #5

Mystery In Space - Looking forward to this. These periodic anthologies seem to be last dredges of what I consider to be Vertigo comics...especially now that they just announced that Sweet Tooth has been cancelled.

Frankenstein Alive #1 - New Bernie Wrightson on Frankenstein!

Choker TP - Finally. Can't believe this took so long. Very good crime comic, with some superhero/supernatural elements. Ben McCool is one of the hotter indie up and coming writers around right now, and Ben Templesmith is...well, he's still Templesmith. This took like 3 or 4 years to finish.

Fatale #5

We may have been over this before, but Spaceman, Fairest (and Fables), Saucer Country, and New Deadwardians are all really good. Punk Rock Jesus (Sean Gordon Murphy!) and Collider (more Sci-Fi comics!) both look like they can be really good too.

I don't think Vertigo is as dead as you think.

Also, I think its about time I gave Sweet Tooth a shoot. I don't think I had a good grasp of what it was about when in launched so I over looked it. When I found out it was a Post-Apoc type book it was well into the run. I do like that stuff.

Also worth noting that Sweet Tooth isn't cancelled but Jeff Lemire says its just run its natural course. Given his relationship with DC (I assume) no reason to doubt that?

2000 AD Prog 1778 (Clearly Diamond are still awaiting Rebellion printing 1776 & 1777  ;))

Frankenstein Agent of Shade #9 (It's been a blast but Stevie won't be following onto Kindt's run now that he's added both Dial H & Pete Milligan's Stormwatch to his list)

Mystery in Space #1

Crossed Badlands #5

Fatale #5

FAIREST #3 Preview (good series so far. More Fables is always good)


Stevie will defo be picking up the second arc of this.

2011 Arthur C. Clarke Award Winner Lauren Beukes is writing that.


Hmmm. Wonder how that came about then eh?

Did a Nerd Shop run this weekend and had a load of stuff waiting for me as I'd not been for three weeks.

My DC haul was

Fantastic: Action Comics (best issue yet), Animal Man, Swamp Thing, Batman, All Star Western, Earth 2 (what a way to start a series!).

Good: Batwing, Resurrection Man

Fine: JLI, Frankenstein, Flash (looks very good but sometimes the writing... I wonder if this was any other character would I still be getting it?)

Justice League Dark which if it wasn't for the fact that Jeff Lemire was taking over I'm afraid I would have cancelled. I love Pete Milligan and there's always a scene in each issue that's great, just over all its been a bit of a mess.

Green Arrow which has hints of what Nocenti did that was so good with Daredevil, but is a little random and breakneck. I'm going to give it a little more time for her to settle in but this one is close to the chop now.

G.I. Combat that was so bland, next issue will have to pick up a lot or this one is gone before its even really started. 'War that time forgot' read like every comic where anybody at Marvel first arrives at the Savage Land but took like 14 pages to do that!

I also handed in my list of picks for me stuff to try. L'il Depressed Boy (from issue 13), Fatale from issue 6, The Massive starting in June and the very unimaginatively named 'Creator Owned Comics' also coming out in June. Any DC book in the fine list (or worse) needs to be looking over its shoulder!

I also got Popeye 1 which was great fun, Spaceman which is a fine series but I wish I'd trade waited and Planet of the Apes which is brilliant as ever. How the hell they've managed to get as consistently good comic out as regularly as this, keeping the same art team, with apparently such mediocre sales is a wonder, it really is and you should all check it out.
