Love the atmosphere, the atmosphere in the art-work feels as though it's written. Genius.
    I have the TP of that. Tis great indeed.

    Bring 'em back is what I say. And if you take into consideration the Batman #608-#619 was HUSH, then what a fantastic 18 months for comics it was.

    Brilliant.

    You'd really like 100 Bullets I think. Not a superhero in sight.

    Ah i stopped reading All star supes after #2, couldn't be arsed. Art was gubbnis, dunno what DC were thinking ever considering Quietly for superhero comics.

    Anyhoo couldn't give a toss about stinky supes, Adam Hughes is now on writing and drawing All Star Wonderwoman! Now that will be the best comic ever created evah! Nuff Said Natch!

    \o/

    Huh? I've been a HUGE fan of Frank Quitely ever since his work on 2000AD's Shimura; how can you not like it? I buy books solely for his work; it's even led me over to the dark side (Marvel) now and again. ;)

    Oh well, diff'rent strokes...

    It's just a bit weird for Superman I think, I know what he's saying. It does match the frankly NUTS story lines though.

    Broken City is a Trade paperback, so no excuses people.



    Best. Batman Site. Ever!

    I've got 'loads' of collecting to do. Click on a picture and you get the stroyline and all the original comics that make up the collection. Fantastic stuff.

    Caught on to him years ago when he was doing The Greens in Electric Soup, then saw the Shimura stuff and a couple of indie things he did, all fantastic but not a style i think is any good whatsoever in a superhero comic strip. Overworked and flat are not good styles for superhero work.

    He is better than that guy that traces photos on the ultimates though ;) And alex ross :p

    Does anyone here buy their comics online?

    I just wanted to reliably check some release dates and hopefully get a few bargains, but i can't seem to find a site that's reliable and cheap?

    wholesalecomics.co.uk

    But then again, EBay is your best best, some ridiculously cheap prices for comics on there.

    Frank Quitelys artwork is a pile of poo, well it was when he did Shimura :) My Brother and his friend Started that off and mister Quitely killed Shimura with his scratchy clumsy artwork.

    Also Mega City Comics and Forbidden planet both have decent online services. Neither are "cheap" as such.

    The Graphic Novel or the individual comics? Are they just great? The style, the feel etc. Very adultly written too. Especially when the rich party guest makes a fool of the Prof in Ep1. Very subtly done I thought.

    I like Wayne's quiff too! :p

    Oh yes, that's right. What do 'you' think of it? :)

    Heh :)

    Got the graphic novel, I'm not too anal about past issues really, depends on what it is, but for this I was quite happy to get it all in one nice colleciton. Liking it, even if it is a bit "faux-Miller", but maybe that's just me trying to pick holes. Yeah, pretty good. Picked up Issue 1 of Mad Monk as well.

    Oh God yes, that is fucking superb! Possibly my favourite. The other Loeb/Sale ones are excellent as well.

    Sorted the Sword of Azreal link. :) Just click again.

    If you read here you'll see that this part of the series never made it to a Trade Paperback (I only need the Shadow of The Bat Comics) and there's a couple of comics listed here that also never made into the Pt.3 TPB. Those are all I need now.

    That Batsquad.net site is really awesome.
