      Yeah, but at least you caught up. It's worth the read.

        You and I are gonna talk Uncanny after July 8th when the new team comes out. Cloak and Dagger are my favorite charavters, and I am a big fan of Emma and Mimic as well. This new line up looks great.

            I'm reading Astonishing X-men, too.

            Not sure I'll follow Uncanny unless Wolverine's somewhere in there. Things are getting a bit expensive right now with Marvel's prices going up, and now I've added Uncanny First Class, and X-Men Forever (not sure if they are both on-goings, or what), and then all the one-shots and minis...and I'm going broke!

            I gotta say - Wolverine Origins has received a lot of flack over the years, but it continues to be one of my favorite books. It's not all slice and dice like most Wolverine books, but a bit more intrigue and angst.

            My lcs is closing, so now I'm getting my books on-line (starting July 1 - there will be a delay). I'm giving a guy I know from Bendis' forum a go - he has a shop down in NC, and I really want to support a brick and mortar outfit if I can. http://acmecomics.com/

              Wolverine's son Daken is in it.

                Oh, okay - yeah, then I am going to be reading it. I actually like Daken sometimes better than his pa, simply because he's SO unpredictable. I love a character you just can't read. However...I prefer such a character to remain in the grey area - villain sometimes, hero sometimes - but never either of the two extremes.

                  I agree. That has been the point of Thunderbolts for the most part, which is why I like that comic, and now Dark Avengers (Thunderbolts part 2) and Uncanny XMen. Don`t get me wrong. I like wonderful good guy teams, but there is something fun about dark antiheroes. It's why we all like Elric, and why I always loved Cloak and Dagger. Cloak was very dark, although they are kind of cleaing up his image and compared to the rest of the XMen team he will be one of the good guys.

                    DC comics after buying Impact Comics (Archie Comics action line) almost 20 years ago has repackaged The Mighty Crusaders (1965) in to the Red Circle. DC had put out a Deep Impact story line in 1991 but keep it in the/a Impact Universe. Now they are introducing four "new" characters to the DC Universe in One-Shot Books in August. Hangman (1941), Arson (aka Inferno 1941), The Web (1942), and The Sheild (1940). With means its only a matter of time be for The Return Of The (also 1940)

                        Haven't found a comic store in Andalusia yet, on my last trip back to Glasgow I called in at A1 books and picked up the new Guardians of the Galaxy ( On J-Sun's recommendation!! ), also picked up Amazing Spiderman and Uncanny X-Men. Years ago I had a standing order and my list was massive, most Marvels, lots of DCs, Cerebus however I kind of lost interest during the Ron Perelman time in Marvel when the company nearly went bust and tried everything to make money. I like the new Guardians series and next time I am back am going to ask the guys in A1 books if they will ship here, if not I'll give my Mum a list and have her send them over every three months or so!!!

                          Okay, the last 2 issues of Thunderbolts were great! It used to be my favorite comic, until Ellis took it over. Looks like Diggle is getting it back to where it should be.

                          Captain Britain just ended. Eh. Probably for the best. It was a bit weak. (A shame, as Cornell is such a good writer.)

                            I've been digging the Wednesday Comics weekly broadsheet thing from DC which has been enticing me back into comic shops (also after a long hiatus). The Strange Adventures, Hawkman and the Kamandi strips there are favourites of mine.



                            I've now started to pick up the new Batwoman series in Detective Comics - the art is lush. The back up story with The Question is great too.



                            I've been following Ed Brubaker's run on Captain America. I'm not a fan of the Cap but this is solidly written, exciting action comics. I'm keen to check out his Incognito series once it's released as a trade.

                            I tried a few X-Men First Class trades - which I thoroughly enjoyed, being a fan of the original X-Men team.

                            I've also started getting into the DMZ trades from Vertigo/DC.



                            I am also reading the new anthology of old Spider pulps "City of Doom" which although prose, it really reads like a prose comic book. It puts all of the above into context (except maybe X-Men: First Class).



                            Before I came here just now I read this quote from JG Ballard which can be applied to the Spider stories where the protagonist is an aristocratic mass murderer of "gangsters" whose master-minds inflict catastrophes on Gotham (collapsing sky-scrapers etc) and who deserve the gory fate the Spider inflicts:

                            "Our societies are driven by conflicting psychopathological impulses. A huge natural catastrophe like Katrina fits perfectly with our fundamentally apocalyptic mood. One has to realize that we live in principally secular societies: God is dead... They are the violent forces that punish us for our immoral lives. That can be very satisfying, so long as one isn’t affected oneself."
                            EDIT: That cover of Comet #1 looks awesome.

                              What turned out to be part 2 of "The Making of a Sorceror" graphic book. I picked it up at FanExpo; $1. It seemed like a very good cheeseburger; enjoyable but it went by very quickly. Now to find part 1 and 3.
