Are you reading current Marvel at all? That guy is all over current Marvel...

Maybe I AM falling behind.  I thought everything was still about red Hulk (or Rulk, as the guy at the comic store named him) and Marvel Zombies.  What have I been doing?

He's playing heavily in the New Avengers and the Dark Reign stuff.

I think he is - imaginatively enough, since he wears a hood - called 'The Hood'.  [EJG3, is your cat version, by any chance, called 'The Hoodie'?]

Update: Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour drops next week!  The final chapter will be mine!



I wonder what Bryan is going to do once he finishes the series?

Also, I've been rereading some From Hell.  Man, that is an incredible book, especially the second chapter where we learn all about William Gull.

"No. I just made a little sound."  Creepy.

Awesome.  Your Skurge Kitty needs a couple of M16s though.

You got it! (I have not come up with pun names for the characters though...)

I am afraid this is a case of mistaken identity - I have not drawn Scourge yet...

Neat.  I had a friend go movie to Toronto after Christmas and I insisted he (a big fan who actually released a podcast about him marking his life when he read each book) go on a Scott Pilgrimage.  I love wordplay.  Anyway, some of the places he found by complete accident, including Honest Ed's.

Right now, I'm rereading the series to prepare for the book tomorrow.

By the way, if you want to check out my friends podcast, check here:

Oops, I guess Scott Pilgrim got to the stores today but don't get released until Tuesday.  Waiting is the hardest part.

In the meantimes I got this:

Yakitate!! Japan Vol. 23


Frankly, the series (which is sort of like Iron Chef with bread) peaked in Vol. 14 and has lost a lot of it's appeal, although a lot of the recipes are still kind of neat.

I also got Spider-Man: Crime and Punisher



A bit of a letdown after the coolness that was New Ways to Die, but the stories are still good and there are some interesting artists (particularly Paolo Rivera who kind of gives the book a Paul Pope vibe) in here.  I find much of Chris Bachalo's stuff to busy and overdesigned to follow, but his Spider-Man stuff is relatively simple and he does a great job on the Hammerhead story, particularly the origin story part of it.  Plus there's a really good ending to a Flash Thompson story that I might have seen coming if it was just some other random character.  Now I kind of want him to come back to New York soon, at least for a little while.

In strange news, Scott Thompson is doing a comic book about Kids in the Hall character Danny Husk from AT & Love.  Interesting, but weird.

Woo!  I got Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour!  Now I'm going to do some work, get lunch, then come back to work and read the whole thing cover-to-cover!  Plus I got Buffy Season 8 Vol. 5, so that's good too.  Plus 3D glasses, since I lost the ones I got for League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: the Black Dossier.

Edit: Just finished it.  Book good.

Edit 2: Here are the trailer for the Gantz movie.  I wonder if they are going to tone down the gore?  (Probably not the sex)

And there's another shorter trailer here:

Comic Con... specifically comics.  What looks good to you.

I like this

http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2010/07/sdcc-10-first-look-at-loeg-vol-iii-century-2-1969/

I missed the last one, but I'm just waiting for the trade.  Still, I can't wait to see how Moore handles this one.  Sounds like it ties into Rosemary's Baby.

Morrison has yet another new Batman book on the way.  Morrison could write "The Grant Morrison Drinks His Own Urine" Book and I'd still read it.  This one is a Batman team book:

Batman Inc.

I loved Peter David's Young Justice (some derided it as to goofy, but they can go to hell), and though it looks like it is only taking the name, this still looks interesting.  I still miss short attention span Bart Allen.

Still waiting for my copy of Scott Pilgrim book 6 to make it's way to my house. Should arrive any day now.

Meanwhile I have been rereading the Bendis run of Daredevil and am just launching into the Brubaker run for the first time. I loved the Bendis stuff, but I think I am loving the Brubaker stuff even more!

Also I drew some more Marvel Villain Cats:
