in september! yay!
i <3 the walking dead #6 was horrendous in places, made me feel ill..
I'm hoping that I might get them for my birthday....
since my friend stopped working in Forbidden Planet and got a 'real' job. He's soooo selfish.
it's going somewhere big over the next few volumes i think.
but will it make me feel ill too? connundrum.
Travelling Man (Bristol's premier comic shop) didn't know when 6 was out when i asked.
although amazon didn't get any stock until about may.
it sold out in newcastles comic shops so i had to wait until last weekend until i could finally get my hands on it.
read it in one sitting and now i'm desperate for book7 to hurry it's ass up and reach the shops.
six is pretty grim reading.
where all the big mainstream marvel heroes are zombies ?
i had a flick through one of those books at work but it seemed a bit too gimmicky to me.
i don't really go for superhero stuff anyway.
other stuff i've bought and enjoyed recently:
the exterminators #1
fell in particular is ace - really great noir stuff by warren ellis.
is pretty much the best ever (apart from her boyfriend and ryan adams)
but the first book is certainly a lot of fun, and i've read that the 2nd is a massive leap on from it.
it's drawn by Tony Moore, so looks ace as well.
i want this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_Pope
i'm not sure i could get back into, stuff like house of m and civil war looked awesome but i don't think i'd know where to start.
not that i have the time for reading piles of back issues and constant trips to newcastle for new books.
and i've also been picking up more 2000AD stuff. judge dredd: origins is ace, as both caballistics, inc books, although they've now reprinted all the available material of that, and it ends on a cliffhanger that has yet to receive a follow up at all. so god knows how it long it's going to take for #3 to come out :(
on the plus side, nikolai dante #5 covers up to the end of the war, and i've not read anything past that at all, so i'm looking forward to #6 :D
Caballistics and Nikolai Dante, of all the 2000AD collections they suffer the most by not being weekly.
As much as I hate the huuuuuge gaps between Caballistics stories, part of its charm is the whole drip-drip-drip story huliding up slowly. With the collections you can whoosh through it in one go.
Dante starts trailing off after the Tsar Wars stories...by the end of the next big arc (Pirates!) it's really, really, really bad. When they announced Simon Fraser was coming back on art duties (after FIVE years!) I think everyone was happy as it gave the series a chance to pull itslef up again
i've found caballistics the other way around - i never really enjoyed it when i used to read it in the weeklies, but i like it a lot more in collective form. gordon rennie needs to do some soon though, if alt.comics.2000AD was still around i'd moan at him about it on there ;)
shame about dante, but from what i know after the war morrison was a bit burnt out on it, hence why there was so little material for a few years? the more recent stuff, with fraser back on it, looked quite fun from a few issues i've flicked through in FP.
to be honest i regret not buying the weeklies anymore, but i just don't have the space for them. i wish they did a digital version or something..
saying that, space or not - i'm really really tempted by these Dredd reprints they've been doing recently..
