Giles Wright is back with an interesting collection of stories about two members of the Angel family.

Content note: one of the stories deals with abduction and strongly implied sexual violence.

Thanks for this, Eamonn - not having a huge knowledge of US comics, I wasn't aware this existed, but now I'm going to read it.
The likes of the ridiculous All-Star Batman and Robin and the nastily racist Holy Terror make you forget that Frank Miller was brilliant in his day.

Fantastic conversation - so engaging I kept wanting to interrupt and say - Arh but doesn't that exclude this, and what about such and such. But lovely stuff.

If anyone is tempted to learn more about DD - after all his is probably (well definiately?) the best American Superhero comic for  number of fantastic runs per issue count - just so much good stuff, I've provide the correct (ahem) order of quality of the various 'big' runs - worth noting I've not read the current run yet but hear amazing things about it.

Quote
Nocenti > Waid >>> Bendis > Brubaker > Miller + Janson* >>>> everything else

*[Normalfontsize] I'm excluding 'Born Again' here as its possibly the best DD story ever but at only 7 issues I don't think it counts as a 'run' and brilliant as it is I don't want to add it to this big run as it'd muddy the waters. [/Normalfontsize]

This comes from one of my fav threads here - 'Daredevil fans in the house?'

https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=23298.15

Where amongst many wonderful thoughts and opinions on ol' Horn Head you can see me justify - in excruciating detail - why the Nocenti run is the very, very best!

Cheers, guys. Glad the detour into American comics hasn’t gone down too badly.
Some more Slaine coming up next week

Brian Doob from the British Invaders podcast takes me on an interesting tangent into a nice collection from Diana comic of Steed and Mrs Peel stories from the early 1960s.
