    What drugs is Ellis on, lol? Probably Red Bull and something, judging from the Bad Signal.

    Man, that Mignola homage is bad ass.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    Wow, I read the first issue of this and thought they were trying too hard with the humor, but it looks like I need to give it another look. Those scans are amazing.

    Hensler: I was the same way. I thought it was trying too hard, but it eventually makes a nice balance between humor and actual comic bookery.

    I have the hardcover. It is extremely bad ass.

    Nextwave is so good that I am honestly buying every single member of my family, as well as a good number of friends*, a copy of the tpb.

    *Everyone I'm buying a gift for, basically. Including my Granma.

    NEXTWAVE is soooo GOOD. The writing kind of misses once in a while, but the art is just that damn good.

    Honestly I kinda want a real comic in the style and with the story that The Captain one is done in that issue.

    also

    hahaha holy shit I just noticed in issue 2, Dirk Anger's nurse pours baby chickens into a blender which is fed into him via IV. So awesome.

    But isn't Absolute a DC thing, Whippy?

    An omnibus would be sweet, although it would piss off those who got the first hardcover.

    Thanks to the constant praise and scans in this thread, I've decided to make it my life's goal to procure Nextwave. Question, though: is the hardcover significantly better than the paperback in anyway, or can I save my money?

    Save your money, there isn't anything special about the hardcover that is out now.

    i bought the hardcover purely because my comicshop made a very large error when calculating the Canadian to American exchange.

    which is really odd because they have Canadian and American prices printed on the damn flap. I think they basically just put the wrong tag on there. In any case it was my gain because I bought it for a softcover price.

    It was delicious.

    I listened to it last night... it's really not all that awesome.

    I mean, the lyrics are good, but the execution is lacking.

    I found a Crayon Butchery version of #5 today, though. Score!

    Ok. I just picked up the vol 1 hardcover.

    This is the best thing of all time. Why have I not been reading it all along?

    Also. Are there really theme songs to this? That would be amazing.

    Well, it's official. Issue 12 is out and Nextwave is over.

    There's a sort of a hole inside me now (it makes me strangely attracted to myself) and I don't know if there's a comic out there that can fill it.

    Nextwave 12 was...

    Well, it was a letdown. Art wasn't sharp, laughs were few and far between (and certainly not as hard as previously), the 'plot twists' packed punch... it felt like the whole creative team had just been deflated somehow. It was still a wonderful series, but a somewhat anticlimactic one.

    Man, I thought it was a lot better than the last issue.

    Maybe because it actually had dialogue instead of 12 pages of two-page battle scenes (which are good for a quick snicker, but that's about it).

    Surely, you jest.

    It was an awesome finale to an incredibly awesome series. The plot twists made me laugh out loud every time, and the art was perfect for the mood they were aiming for.

    Very satisfying, in my opinion.

    When Nextwave started, I really did not like it. I'm looking forward to having the cash to actually afford comics again so I can pick up 11 and 12.
