    In case anyone missed it - Ellis' Demo came out yesterday. I have yet to pick it up, as I was in Boston, but...yeah. Image is putting it out, and the only mention I've seen of it has been on his site, so there you go.

    I just got FELL 1 and 3, and read through them, and didn't even notice that 3 wasn't number 2.

    What a great format.

    Damn you, my shop was all sold out of Fell 3. I did, however, get Down.

    Every time I read Fell I get a massive erection. The combination of the art and the writing and the story is just fucking great.
    And the Nun. I fucking love the Nun.

    I just finished watching the Global Frequency pilot. I liked it, but it did have some problems. It would have been very difficult from a production aspect of having different actors for every episode.

    Rise from your grave, shiteyes.

    So Ellis' upcoming Marvel book "NextWave" has it's own Theme song.

    And it's alright.

    "..Like Titanic, but the boat's still floating... No it's not! the Mother%$% boat's EXPLODING!"

    Is it my understanding that the same man who wrote transmet also wrote the first two story arcs for The Authority?

    Wow, I owe him so much. I have read so much of his while sitting in a bookstore. Wow.

    Because parting with money is one of the more painful practices in my life. Couldn't I just send him a paper plate with some dry macaroni art. Or tell every one I know with disposable income if they want to increase their intellegence by 200% they should buy and read his books? Wouldn't that be enough.

    Although people with disposable income usually are disgusted by po' people like me...

    You should be paying the guy.
    Or at least checking them out at the library, so they're encouraged to buy more of his work.

    May I respectfully disagree, in that The Authority just further led to the Dark! Grim! We're Hardasses!-ness which is sweeping pretty much everything that is Pop Culture.

    Although, there are some swell Quitely issues in there, so I guess I'll let it slide.

    I'm not saying they started it, just that they helped a lot. They're not so bad, though, I guess. Not for me is all.

    It was the quiet moments in Ellis' run on The Authority that I loved so much. Not so much the violence but the pre-violence dialog.

    The closest I can say I came to enjoying straight Authority violence was when Jack and The Midnighter were like "hello, we're here to hit you"

    But it was Ellis who made my two favotire characters a gay superman and batman. Quietly and Miller didn't capture the awesome quiet moments, though not for lack of trying. Actually the Q/M run on Authority kind of ruined it for me. I mean it was cool, and action packed but not the same quality unfortunately. Not nearly close. Miller is showing is just starting to show his limitations in The Ultimates and it's starting to get me sad :-(

    While EC certainly pioneered the darker horror comics of the fifties, it wasn't until DKR and Watchmen were written that the "anti-hero" began to take off. It's pretty evident if you look at what kind of books were being published 2 years before, and two years after this era.

    All of a sudden the Punisher has 5 books.

    I had nothing to do with the linking of my name with CASTLEVANIA, have never played the game and have never clapped eyes on James Jean, whom I believe is a popular illustrator with the young people of today. I have no further comment to make at this time.

    Obviously, I am to be trusted in all things.

    So I just bought this short trade called "Stranger Kisses". I know absolutely nothing about it, but it's by Ellis and it was only five bucks, so I figured what the hell.

    Anybody read it?
