    Wasn't there something else with a character named "Sexica"? What am I thinking of?

    Well, Graham's used these characters before. They previously appeared in a one-shot from Oni Press, the Escalator anthology that was put out by a now-defunct small-press publisher, and a porn comic published by NBM.

    edit: Huh, that's funny. Sam and Fuzzy's one of those webcomics I've always been aware of, but never actually read.

    Dude, buy King City. It's 424 pages for just over $11.

    King City is a legitimate treasure.

    Take a moment to donate what you can to Critical Resistance and Black Lives Matter.

    between prophet and king city brandon graham has shot straight into my top tier of writers/ artists. king city you don't so much read it as drink it in with the eyes.

    i'm holding out on multiple warheads in the vain hope the pre-image issues will be collected in the first trade.

    I hate when people get as far as realizing that Batman has a wealthy backer in Gotham and THEN hit a roadblock. Maybe it's the guy whose parents were killed by a mugger, disappeared during his formative years, and then returned with the build of a olympic athlete...

    Or, I don't know, maybe it's Paris Hilton.

    Also, there's the whole Batman Inc. thing where Bruce Wayne publicly announced that he was Batman's financier.

    Now that you mention it, I've never seen Paris Hilton and Batman together in the same place........

    Grant Morrison gets a pass for anything he does at DC because fanboys.

    It seems like the argument here isn't that Morrison screwed up, but rather that people don't acknowledge things Morrison does in sometimes embarrassing ways (See: Wingman reveal)

    i feel like there's problems with morrison's stuff meshing with the greater DC universe between morrison failing to share what he's doing at DC and DC failing to sync up with what he's doing when they are aware.

    Yeah its definitely a problem at both ends.

    THough I admit I'm mostly always willing to forgive GM's part in all that since he's at least writing an entertaining Superman book.

    I mean the writers of Superman and Lee can blame Morrison all they want for how the character doesn't really sync up from book to book but that doesn't explain how broken and wrong the Lee's and the first few issues of Superman is.

    There were lots of great moments in ANXM #2 but my favorite was probably Wolverine's first meeting with the past five.

    The last arc of Bendis' New Avengers is nowhere near the strongest of his work on the title, but it did give us two pretty damn awesome pages in this final issue.

    ooh modern defenders look plus giant cape. I'm a fan.

    also on that note, I picked up the defenders trade today and it had these "i am a defender" variants made with typography for each character in the back section with all the different covers.

    my favorite personally, but I'm a big iron fist guy.

    Well at least through the whole contrived sorcerer supreme mess they managed to off a compelling POC. Yay, Marvel!

    Was it really necessary for Black Widow to kiss Rogue? They could've just high fived. Oh well. Both stories were good but I liked Shadowcat and Iron Man better.

    I didn't like the Rogue/Widow story much, doubly so since it was originally going to be a Beast/Spider-Man story

    Glory #30, Glory decides to recruit her petulant, but deadly younger sister to the cause. All sorts of great stuff going on in this one:

    you probably want to just link the NSFW images, as I believe they still load behind spoilers

    No, seriously, it's great.

    Ross Campbell's art is spectacular, and Owen Gieni's colors really make it sing. For his part, Keatinge is doing some interesting stuff with the characters, subverting certain old tropes, and all the characters have very distinct, if not particularly nuanced, voices.

    And the most recent issue had a flashback that saw Glory teaming up with Oscar Hemingway, in order to capture Fantômas. It's that kind of book.
