    I like the art.

    Except for the blood. I'm tired of artists drawing it like its fucking silly string.

    Not entirely

    but that's out of Ellis's hands right now

    Cassady just needs to ignore everything else and finish it.

    Man, Cassaday took those other jobs because Ellis was late with the scripts by years. Man does not live by Bluetooth alone.

    I like how not only is there a token black guy, and that the "Prez" is wearing a casual swear with PREZ USA on it, but the random stereotypical Indian girl is not pointing at where the crosshair is presumably coming from, but rather off to the side.

    So are there 2 sharpshooters?
    I would like to see a comic where due to a series of time travel mistakes, unfortunate accidents and wacky hijinxs it turns out that Wonder Woman is responsible for every major politcal assassination for the past two hundred years
    Oh god, I can see it now.
    The Fantastic Four go back to the mid-1930s. Ben impregnates a German chick, and then they leave for their time again. The baby grows up to be Hitler, and hating his Jewish father for leaving his mother(and hearing he was a "monster") goes on to...well...you know...

    ...
    ...
    ...
    I feel bad for having wrote that.
    (My other idea was that the F4 accidentally kill Hitler and end up having to enact the Holocaust themselves, with the comic just ending abruptly as Johnny yells Flame On with the rest of the pages reading "Wow. This went downhill fast.")

    Is this turning into SE? Every thread does part-time as a chat thread?

    I wish we would get more preview art or something. Even a full-sized preview of the next cover would be neat.

    I read the entire issue. Clearly it was the "not retarded" variant.

    It'd be more apt to say that it's drawing parallels with the immediate post 9/11 America, in that the rest of the Guns are trying to distance themselves but are immediately suspected of being in cahoots with John Horus.

    Of the 6 Guns left, only 2 of them seem to be saying that.

    Edit: And not even saying that it is Bush = Hitler, just that the execution was justifiable.

    So #3 comes out soon.

    Has anyone been buying those really awesome "Design" variants? $9 is a hell of a lot to spend for a cover, but they are so awesome.

    Hell no, I'm not paying that much just for a variant cover. That's the price of 3 singles.

    Exactly. I wish I could get the artwork somewhere, legally. I really like Ryp's work in this, and the covers are cool, but there is no way I am paying $9 for that.

    Some of the wrap-around covers could make neat desktop wallpapers.

    Sweeney's DA page has some of the wrap covers! Jawsome!

    TFAW has Black Summer #3 coming out on Oct 31! I am thinking that is wrong, with Black Summer #2 hitting almost a month earlier than some of the solicits said so, after I think 1 coming out earlier than solicited too.

    They do variants because they sell.

    The boxart is kind of cool though. I really like most of Ryp's work in this. He has kind of a Quitely and Darrow vibe at the same time.
