    Gave into temptation, Friday. Bought a hard back copy of, Casus - 4. De Grote Zwendel. Set in 1977 in London around the Royal Jubilee. Sex Pistols included.

    Also, a soft cover copy of, Wunderwaffen - Zeppelin's War 1. De Nachtraiders. Lots of zeppelin / bi- & tri-plane aerial combat action. Apparently, Hitler has been promoted to Flight Lieutenant in the imperial German air-fleet.

    Just read Crossed +100 issue 5. Great stuff, second last issue of Moore's first arc. Goes into the origins of the slightly more civilized crossed capable of raising children without killing and eating them, also asks the interesting question of how a depraved serial killer would react to the Crossed outbreak.

    I've been reading
    Dark Reign: The List - a Secret Warriors one-shot from 2009.

    Why?
    Because my friend Andy Williams pointed out that it has a reprint of an old Jim Steranko Nick Fury strip from 1968 in the back.

    And much to my astonishment, said strip was the uncensored version, in print I think for the first time.

    Totally unheralded, unmentioned in the comic in fact.
    By which I mean, the existence of any Steranko reprint therein is not actually mentioned anywhere on the contents page or cover.
    Let alone the historic importance of this very rarely seen art (AFAIK never in fact seen outside of small B&W image see in an old fanzine and twice reproduced online.)

    Picked up the new series of Hawkeye 2 and 3. Noticed that Garth Ennis was writing the Phantom Eagle in Where Monsters Dwell, ticking two nostalgia boxes.

    Also picked up Triskelion by Kathryn Briggs

    Could be some one to watch out for.

    Agreed she is a much more likeable character, which is kind of weird hehehe

    As for Swamp Thing Volume 4: I remember enjoying the other volumes content but it was like 25 years ago since I last read them. this is the first time I read the arcs of volume 1 to 4 in real format because in the past they were published in Brazil in small format without original colors.

    Zlogdan I think Volume 4 was the last truly amazing arc in the series.

    Currently reading Death: The Deluxe Edition. I like her a lot more than Morpheus, the stories are just great and so is the art.

    I picked up the Another Suburban Romance collection by Alan Moore on spec. Not quite what I expected. Not sure if I could recommend it. It was not bad, well written and the artwork is very nice, but it was not exactly pleasant either (and I enjoyed Neonomicon) but, when you've bought your ticket, you take the ride..

    I also bought the Grandville Noel book on spec as I loved the other ones. There was a lot of wordy exposition in this one which slowed things down a bit, a lot of anti-religious stuff that has been ruined by bores and bullies like Dawkins and Sam Harris. One of the goodies also says that meat eaters are more intelligent than vegetarians which made me ... I hope Roderick is in the next volume.

    I found a cheap copy of the Longshot series TPB by Ann Nocenti and Arthur Adams. This has held up quite well and the digital remastering works.

    I am presently working through volume 2 of the Elfquest TPB reprint from Dark Horse. I love this so much. Lots of action but with a light touch and tons of heart.

    Warren Ellis / Chris Sprouse "Ocean".

    After I read it I could not avoid thinking this was a quite entertaining and smart science fiction story which could become a real great movie. Anyway, the plot is very interesting, an ocean in one of Jupiter's moons holding some ancient secrets. Fantastic art, dialogs and characters.

    Fine looking cover. Very much in the spirit of New Worlds, too.

    I'm not a big fan of Manga but I am a huge fan of good psychological horror, therefore the last comics I read were Junji Ito's entire story 'Uzumaki'. A terrifying tale of a small coastal village in Japan who's residents are being terrorized by a Spiral Curse. The artwork is phenomenally good and the slow-paced foreboding atmosphere of the stories really gets under your skin.

    Despite being a Japanese horror comic it's not particularly gratuitous and avoids sexual perversion or any kind of suggestive tentacle scenes in favour of a well crafted atmosphere.

    I highly recommend this to fans of Lovecraft and Po.

    The cover artist of the UK Von Bek omnibuses was Mark Reeve. His artwork is reused on the Gollancz omnibus as well.
