    I have bought the last two volumes of Children of the Sea

    http://comicsalliance.com/children-o...suke-igarashi/

    This series is stunning and shows me that there is some great Manga out there. I only see the books in the library and with the exception of Doll, the majority are for the younger members of the library.

    The black and white artwork is incredible and the story is clever (so far up to volume 3). The cover and colour pages are superb. Highly recommended.

    From the coffers of Comic Book Plus. com, I offer for your perusal, a copy of Frankenstein Issue #1 (1945)

    A humorous magazine of some worth.

    I don't think I've ever had so many Marvel titles or so few (well, none in fact) DC comics on order at once.

    Bought a copy of January Jones: Het Graf van de Zeppelin, last week. I really like this series. A nice retro (think Tintin), almost diesel punk strip. With well drawn, unlikely but historically accurate, airplanes and in this one an altogether unlikely, but fun, Zeppelin-aircraft carrier. Featuring a guest star appearance from Nikola Tesla.

    Just have to love the plucky female lead, pilot January Jones. Along with her fellow Nederlander, Franka, two of my favourite comic heroines.

    I have just finished Planetary volume IV, by Warren Ellis and David Cassaday. It was actually issued here bimonthly on the last months which culminated with this issue. Spectacular, fantastic... One of the best things I read....

    Speaking of Alan Moore I finally read From Hell the other weekend. Blimey! I basically dropped all my other plans to finish reading it all the way through..

    Eddie Campbell's art is also fantastic. Now I'll have to get Alec: the Year have Pants.

    I also finished the Stray Bullets slab of a trade paperback the other week. Also great stuff. It wasn't as consistent as From Hell or have that same flow etc, but it was hardly designed to be read in one sitting either. Maybe saying that it made me look at the crime genre a different way means that I need to read more--but there you go.

    I had bought all Alan Moore Swamp Thing issues in the past. They were published on quite different formats and included in several monthly DC magazines in Brazil back in the 1985 up to 1990. If I am not wrong all stories before American Gothic were squeezed inside monthly Superman, DC bundles and the New titans. Then, ST got its own monthly title during "American Gothic". Until this point, all issues were published in the format we called "formatinho" aka tiny comics format ( 13 x 21 cm) http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formatinho and the original color was not used. This preposterous format was a common practice for comics in Brazil, as the publishers did not care for them and thought most titles were aimed to 7 years old kids and they thought their readers were dumb. After the end of "American Gothic" the magazine started to be published on the American format, still with "home-made" colors until issue #12 or #13 when I finally started seeing the original colors.

    I had everything until a few years ago, when I needed some money and sold everything.

    I actually have not read them in the last 10 years. My memory always told me that they were incredible and it was quite great to confirm that by reading this new reissue. The real value of them was not just thematic ( but I think they were deeper and darker than anything labelled horror comics before ), but aesthetic ( impressive, psychedelic art ) and mostly formal: incredible dialogs and off narration which was where Moore abused of his poetic verve.

    Thank God that I loved them now as much as I loved back in the 80s.

    Well. Well...

    I am kinda catatonic heheheehh

    I have just come back from the bookstore down in the mall I have lunch everyday and I really cannot believe this:

    Panini is releasing the Alan Moore Swamp thing saga. Well, publishing it decently finally. First volume has ST20 to 27, which gets a wow from me.

    Bought it of course!

    I recently bought copies of the collected parts 4 of both, Buffy tVS (season 9) and Angel & Faith. Both series have perked up no end. A&F is an especially satisfying read. Looking forward to the concluding chapters, when they come out, next month.

    I guess it depends which MM comics you've downloaded, doesn't it?
