    Come on. Come on.

    The greatest part was when (massive spoilers for the last trade)...
    ...Alter is entering the gassed building, looking for Yorick, and he's there, ready to confront her...and wielding 355's baton. Sent chills down my spine. :P

    I was right pissed when
    Agent 355 died

    Then they
    gassed the room, and I knew instantly "he's been carrying around a gas mask for years!" Yorrick wrecking Alter's shit with 355's asp was glorious, but it didn't hold a candle to the horror of seeing her die.

    I agree there are more powerful moments, but the whole finale was very touching.

    I read Y - The Last Man. I read it for a long, long time.

    And then nothing happened for many issues. When
    the monkey got kidnapped
    I said fuck it. This is waste of money and time.

    Supposedly, things started moving again soon afterwards, but I'd had already given up.

    Tell me. What does it take to patch up a man's broken spirit? What cure do you have for the death of the soul? TELL ME?!

    it was mainly the part where it was a spoiler at the bottom of a page and firefox was doing that stupid thing it does when I click "go to new posts" where it jumps around while it loads the image and I forgot that people were posting Y spoilers in here

    I mean I already had one thing spoiled for me in fucking Wizard but I was hoping I'd be able to make it through the last fucking week without seeing something and it really was my fault

    Just rediscovered a comic that makes me laugh:
    arrowxz0.jpg

    This is not from a published DC comic or anything, just from a comic on an artist's website, recalling a story about an enthusiastic 13 year old Green Arrow fan.

    Ming Doyle's style is pretty awesome. I'm really hoping she gets scooped up by DC or Marvel one of these days; she'd be amazing on something dark and atmospheric, like GLC, Batman, Daredevil, or Aquaman.

    Edit: To contribute, here's a little something from Will Pfeifer's H-E-R-O. The story follows the Hero Dial, best known from the old series Dial H for Hero, which grants its user a different superpower every time it's used. Most of the run is dedicated to mini-arcs showing what happens when an average person gets the Hero Dial. First it goes to Jerry Feldon, a mundane counter jockey at a fast food restaurant. Then to a successful businessman. Then his daughter. Later, some kids that use it to create viral videos. And so on. Each person uses the device for reasons that are often both benevolent and selfish. But as the book moved into its last arc, it focused on what would happen if someone truly malevolent obtained the device.
    The final arc focuses on a serial killer that has found the device, and used it to transform himself into a Superman-level threat, with the ability to have any superpower he can think of. Strength, telepathy, shape-shifting, speed; the works. And what does he use it to do?

    HERO1-1.jpg

    Yeahhh..

    But he's not without opposition. Robby Reed, who used the device as a child, has discovered something that will level the playing field; anyone who once used the device can, with extreme concentration, still tap into any of the powers they conjured with the device. So Robby goes looking for people that have used the device in the past; people that can help him. He finds Jerry Feldon, who has settled down to a nice superpower-free existence with his girlfriend Molly. Eventually, Jerry, Robby, and the killer all finally clash, with the killer getting the better of Robby and Jerry, even after they steal the device from him. Apparently, the superpowers it grants can only be reversed by the hand of the person that first invoked the powers. All seems lost, until the killer reads Jerry's mind, and learns about Molly, and tauntingly changes his appearance to match Jerry's. After the killer threatens to visit Molly wearing Jerry's face, Jerry loses it.

    HERO1-2.jpg

    Jerry briefly overtakes the killer before being overwhelmed again. But Jerry gets an idea..

    HERO1-3.jpg

    HERO1-4.jpg

    Using the killer's own hand to press the keys on the device, the killer becomes momentarily powerless, and Robby uses the opportunity to deal with him.

    It's kind of trendy to make fun of Will Pfeifer for his work on Amazons Attack (not that it's undeserved), but he wrote the Hell out of H-E-R-O and Aquaman a few years ago. H-E-R-O also benefited from having some amazing artists on it, like Kano, Dale Eaglesham, and Patrick Gleason. There's currently only one trade paperback available, but I urge everyone to buy it if they can find it. At just ten bucks, it's a steal.

    Logan was ok but I'd hardly call it typical BKV

    and thats only 2 other things

    so you've read 4 things by him, 2 of which you loved and you dont think it's worth it to even sample one of the most lauded and critically acclaimed comics of the last 10 years

    Do you like Lost? If you've liked it over the last two seasons or so then you'll love BKV comics. BKV is pretty much why it's been so great over the last while.

    What is we3?

    From wikipedia
    We3 is a three-issue American comic book mini-series by writer Grant Morrison and artist Frank Quitely, who describe its kinetic style as "Western Manga". It was published in 2004 by the Vertigo imprint of DC Comics, with a trade paperback released in 2005.

    The story follows the journey of We3, a squad of three prototype "animal weapons," as they flee captivity. Following the decision to terminate them in preparation for expanding the project of which they are a part, their escape is engineered by their trainer. The group consists of a dog, "Bandit" a.k.a. "1"; a cat, "Tinker" a.k.a. "2"; and a rabbit, "Pirate" a.k.a. "3", who were all kidnapped from a nearby city and encased in robotic armor.

    However, it is 1,000,000,000 times better than the description would indicate. And surprisingly moving. It's worth your time to find and read.
