    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.

    Pretty sure the reason it's been great the last two seasons because they know exactly how much time they've got left in the show so now they can go balls out with it, not because BKV is a magician.

    Thanks Joe. I had no clue what you guys were talking about... since I don't really follow comics. I do wander into the comic store sometimes when I'm waiting for a sandwich at our local shop. Ran across that walking dead comic which my wife really likes. Only problem is they don't release the hardcovers soon enough...

    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.
    http://www.mingdoyle.com/comics/greenarrow.html

    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?

    Yeahhh..
    .

    I'm confused. What am I looking at?
    Is she made out of wood now and turned into blocks now, or...just neatly turned into cubes? No blood?

    The second one. And haven't you seen Dexter? Bloodless murder's all the rage.

    I still don't know how her arms are able to hang like that. I'm guessing toothpicks.

    I just thought it was a really surreal image, showing the kind of crazy shit someone with unlimited power could do.

    If i had unlimited power id start with giving myself some creativity before I started killing people in odd ways.

    Oooh cubes, serious was he looking at an ice machine and suddenly thought "Hey that gives me an idea" Although the frozen state would explain the low blood and still attached arms.

    at the back of one of the trades, there's a sample page of another artists rendition of a scene. it is crisp and beautiful and you see it and made me really pissed off, because igor's rendition is a horrible mishapen piece of shit.

    wasn't new x-men a big seller? how did a hack like kordey get a recurring role on the book.

    Seriously, Quietly drew like what... 6 issues? Over how many years?
    If quetly could actually draw all of the X-men issues, that run would have been legendary.

    There still was plenty of good art on New X-Men beyond Quitely though. There was Ethan Van Sciver, Phil Jimenez, Marc Silvestri. It was just disappointing that Igor Kordey drew Wolverine fighting the Imperial Guard and pretty much winning until he went up against Gladiator.

    I remember when those issues came out. We went from Quitely to complete crap. I dropped the book, which I regret because it was really difficult to find all the back issues later.

    Kordey's actually an exceptionally talented artist. He's repeatedly explained the problems on that book were that he was literally drawing entire issues over mere days. Apparently, prior to New X-Men he had a Mark Bagley-like output, drawing 1 1/2 to 2 issues a month, and Marvel kept piling more work at his door, asking him to do more and more. But his editors forgot to tell him when his stuff started to look awful.

    What the fuck is going on in that first panel? Is Ironman an octopus or something? I've stared at that picture for a good 10 minutes now and I still don't get how it's possible.

    I was kind of wondering that myself. Here's the previous page, though it doesn't seem to make it any clearer:

    I know this is a pretty late response, but am I the only one who can't stand how the armor is drawn, awkward positions aside.

    I know Stark is supposed to have flex-metal in the armor but it's a SUIT OF ARMOR for crying out loud, it should have some sort of bulk and SOME angles in it, not look virtually skin tight.

    I started reading Iron Man as a kid when he was in the Centurion armor (Bob Layton FTW). So it just hurts my eyes the way its drawn now.
