Yeah how did that happen?

Aside from the process of being drawn I mean. :)

I financed the printing of book one and two through crowdsourcing (Indiegogo for the first, Kickstarter for the second). Appearances in the comic were one of the reward tiers. K1 has been kind enough to buy an appearance in the strip twice now. :)

I thought it was probably something along those lines, very cool. :)

Yeah, I might want to check those out some time.  In recent years, I've found how good some old school comics can be.  Fourth World, EC Comics (my favourite old school stuff) and what I'm reading for the Halloween season



It's not as fantastic as Drifting Classroom or as next level bonkers as Fourteen, but it is still pretty cool.  It's about a half-human/half-demon (this was before EVERY manga was about this) who keeps running into terrifying situations.  Though it's comparitively more younger reader friendly than most of his books (it has a hero who fights monsters... sort of.  He's not on a quest to fight monsters, they just happen to show up in his life) but still has unsettling stuff and is surprisingly enigmatic with questions that are never answered.  In the first story, a boy meets a hideous man who might be his real father.  Then he turns into a demon.  Even after the monster is finally killed, there's so many unanswered questions that it gives it a really weird feel.  Definitely worth checking out.

Yep, it's official: Marvel is publishing the classic Marvelman (AKA Miracleman) stories from Alan Moore, as well as the Neil Gaiman one, which if Neil Gaiman spoke true, will finally finish his arc).  Here are some deets, which is short for details:

Loved that series.  Alan Moore at his intense best. :)

If anyone is interested in a bit of trivia, for the birth issue Totleben used the first and second hardcover printing of 'A Child is Born' (superb intrauterine (and delivery) photos by Lennart Nilsson) as his references for the delivery sequence (the baby's newborn face is the indisputable proof).  [The third HC printing was heavily revised and those delivery pics were replaced with new ones.]

Oh man, I had the craziest dream that two big comic book companies were publishing huge events with tie-ins that come out every single week, yet the story in both never ever seems to move forward! Then I woke up and was all "whew, thank God for independent comics..."

After all these years, can you believe I've never actually read The Dark Knight Returns until this past week...

...and I didn't care for it that much.  Not sure if I can pinpoint why, other than I'm not a fan of the art style.  I'll keep thinking about it and try and come up with more.

It's very dated, I think.

Had to have been amazing at the time though.

It really is a hideous book. I'll never read it because I can't stand looking at it. Everybody loves the story, but I'll never know because I'm never gonna subject myself to Miller's substandard drawing style.
