The only thing I can't work out is why Hughie hasn't recognised his girlfriend as one of the Seven yet. Surely he'd have at least seen pictures of the new line-up by now, given his job?

I'd been thinking that seemed a bit contrived too, but then remembered that this is a comic taking the piss out of superheroes, and one of the core conceits of most superhero books is...

I'm sure there are a few here who'll be glad to get out the green ink once matron's away.  ;)

Waahay! A trip to Weegietoon reveals what it's like in a real comic shoppe:
Back issues, knowledgeable staff and a decent stock, I doff my hat to FP in Glasgae.
Even the music wasn't the 'I can piss off everyone with getting more mentalmetal than anyone'... if only they would move the Dr Who and Twilight figures away from the comics it would be truely wonderful.

The Battlefields: Happy Valley was a real treat, a lot of talking but PJ work carries the day!

Crossed is getting interesting, found issue one and thought that might help understand WTF going on...nope!

Tips will I send BF to you?

Unfortunately it's actually Issue 0 that sets out the stall and introduces the four main characters.

Ditto for me. Anyone know if the next collection will contain the Ezquerra issues?

Ezquerra on The Boys?

Yup, sharing duties with John McCrea - though this review doesn't rate it. Haven't seen any of it, but I have wondered if his style would suit.

That review's a bit harsh but it wasn't a good fit.

I'm always keen to slag FP off for being full of goths and toys but a few comments on here recently have made me see it in a new light. I can be certain that they will have virtually any comic I might want coming out on a given week (this stuff about folk getting Previews so they can order things months in advance is mental.) If I read something and like it, I can be pretty confident they'll have the last three or four issues available. They have a whole big 2000AD section, although I'm never sure if that's ghettoisation or not. Since the big, obnoxious guy left a while ago all the staff are pleasant.

I've been in the Edinburgh one a couple of times and it's astonishing how different they are.

And while I'm here, let's go for a triple post.

Just read the new issue of The Boys and there's a lovely little treat for us boarders. Un a cinq-un-neuf indeed!
