    my motw is discovering volumes 1-7 of Concrete. I don't think I've ever seen that comic mentioned in GV before.

    My LCS had him as their mascot for the longest time, hopefully with permission.

    It is very good. It's just hard to recommend to complete strangers, as it won't be to everyones liking. I'd probably suggest it to non-comic book fans before I suggested it to fans of most mainstream comics. That might sound like I'm being a snob, but it's just about expectations.

    Part man, part...rock? Over seven feet tall and weighing over a thousand pounds, he is known as The Thing but is in reality the mind of one Benjamin Grimm, trapped inside a shell of stone, a body that allows him to walk unaided on the ocean's floor or survive the crush of a thousand tons of rubble in a collapsed mineshaft...but prevents him from feeling the touch of a human hand.

    I'm sure they actually have nothing in common beyond the most obvious of comparisons, but that's what it immediately made me think of.

    That's basically the idea.

    Take a moment to donate what you can to the International Rescue Committee, the National Immigration Law Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the American Civil Liberties Union. There has never been a more urgent moment to do so.

    I've only read Think Like a Mountain, but yeah, that's some good stuff.

    I guess my MOTW was getting ot the store for the first time in several weeks and having a decent stack of stuff, all of which was excellent. James Stokoe is an amazing cartoonist. Orc Stain is so bizarre and intense, there is nothing else like it. Nothing close.

    seconding orc stain for MOTW, seems odd there's just douglas and i reading it as a lot of people seemed interested back when it was in comics news. its a visual feast, i've been back over it 3 or 4 times since i got it just to take in the art and all the stuff thats going on in every panel...

    It is an amazing book. I have a feeling several people are waiting for the trade. When it first came out, I wasn't sure if it would get a trade or not, and I wanted to support Stokoe, so I got the singles. A trade has since been solicited, but things are behind, so I am continuing with the issues.

    I still need issue 2, my shop didn't get it for some reason and has not been able to get another copy.

    Issue 4 was awesome. The character Boss Beard Sersa is hilariously awesome and comically badass, an orc with a massive beard is a bizarre concept. The psychic communication system is also cool. The poison thrower and her living shawl thing and the battle there was awesome as heck.

    Yeah I'd love to read Orc Stain in singles but my lcs isn't getting them in, so I have to wait for the trade.

    Stokoe's Won Ton 1 and 2 were probably the most imaginative books I've ever read, and the art is absolutely unbelievable. I'm definitely going to get Orc Stain in trade (if the trade is canceled for some reason, I'll probably go back and try to find the singes).

    By the way, I heartily recommend Won Ton to anyone who enjoys food as more than something you stuff in your craw so you can keep your frame animated. Also, to anyone who likes good things.

    Is that the same Concrete that used to be in mostly visual stories( no words/nuff said style) in the backs of NOW comics?
