    I'm not a huge comic fan but I just ordered the second collection of Fletcher Hanks. Only old comics interest me these days, back before the dreaded comic code, when true auteurs and mavericks were allowed to create their own rules in a new format. If you've not read it, I can truly recommend checking out Hanks' first collection.

    You are almost reaching issues 50-56, my all time favorite comics probably.

    Probably, at least in my opinion the second best arc of issues. Just after World's End.

    - Doll's House
    - A game of you
    - Seasons of Mist
    - World's End
    - the kindly ones

    Last two were Doll's House and my favorite: World's End.

    Agree with you on both points, Pebble. Aparo's art is what got me reading Detective, The Brave & The Bold...a bunch of stuff. I had decent copies of some of his Stranger issues, but I got rid of them because of flood damage. After that incident, I haven't kept comics in a basement.

    Jim Aparo is an under rated artist and his work on the Phantom Stranger is also very good as well.

    This week, I finally completed collecting the set of Jim Aparo and Michael Fleisher's "Wrath of The Spectre" series in DC's Adventure Comics. I've always liked how that run resurrected images and story types from Weird Tales and other Great Depression-era pulps.

    I have just finished The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen century vol 2 1969. I am completely amazed by this story, a lot more than I was by Century part I: 1910. It was quite hard to go through that complex mobster talking.

    I am also working my way on the black dossier, reading it slowly. I actually read everything in comics format and I am reading read all the text-based stuff in small doses. The Black Dossier is not that easy to go through, although it is quite good and mandatory for grasping the new Century series.

    Edit: I have just finished Century 2009 and it was superb.

    I actually think Moore was less bitter this time.

    I recently picked up Red Range, story by Joe Lansdale and art by Sam Glanzman. Lots of violence and twisted humor. I need to check out Lansdale's Jonah Hex stuff some time.

    I also got a hold of Jack Jackson's Lost Cause. It's a history of the Sutton-Taylor feud & the life of John Wesley Hardin. If there's any Jaxon fans out there, he needs his own thread. It stirred a bit of controversy when it was published. I have been collecting his Texas history graphic novels fro years now. He got me interested in Texas History Movies, a cartoon history of Texas done back in the 1920s.

    I have just sold my issues of V For Vendetta and Watchmen. I am not crazy, I have just sold the 5 and 12 editions respectively of those series and bought the single issues paperbacks. Easier to keep in the shelf and read.

    Couldn't UK and Canadian readers just download the series through a licensed digital distributor like Comixology in the USA (or from some other place where Diamond knees haven't knocked)?

    Edit: Also, there's Image's own site for its digital downloads, including BK2: https://comics.imagecomics.com/
