It feels very hypocritical coming from a man who hounded his predecessor for evidence of his birth place and built a his campaign on "her emails".  Pot meet kettle.

No question it's Dante. Not to say I didn't enjoy Survival Geeks - I did it's great and I had been holding out for a volume in the UC (doesn't look like that'll happen now alas). But Dante is in a different league.

Going to go with the "which would I rather see more of" and that's undoubtebly Brass Sun. Love Savage for all it's gritty violence but Brass Sun stands out as something different in the prog where gritty violence is a bit of a given

Kingdom. It's far more consistent than Rogue which for every great moment has some meh.

Finished the series last night. Really enjoyed it. Hoping they manage to keep it running, seems to be popular so that's a good sign at least.

Skizz is great but ABC Warriors is the clear winner here

I can't help but feel there's a whole raft of comics that suffer from trying to be too clever around this era. You've got Mills banging out Slaine epics that mostly seem to exist to show off his research of <insert historical epoch here>. Moore is producing From Hell with it's extensive appendicies of notes detailing all his research into the ripper and victorian London. And Cerebus is left in a holding pattern while Dave Sim shows us his literary nerd credentials/aspirations with Melmoth (and that only gets worse with Form and Void and Going Home with their notes/rambles about Hemingway and Fitzgerald).

As someone who came to this stuff later in life it does feels a lot like (some) comics writers in the 90s had a chip on their shoulder about not being considered "proper" writers and over compensated.

Gonna join the chorus of votes for Nemesis

Ahh such a shame to have to loose either of these both great thrills with superb art. Vote has to be Lawless much as I hate to see Thistlebone go down.

A book of Niemand Dredd would be awesome

The fact it's a new authors revival of the character makes it feel like the Devlin book will stand alone from the MC vols fairly well. A Lawless book dropping into the story after the end of the MC book might be tougher. Still holding out for a 2nd Stickleback vol here

The Out

Bad Company. Red seas is superb and more consistent but it never hits the high of those early BC tales.
