I have both of these on the way, really looking forward to them (especially the first since says Michael Moorcock says that it's his favorite adaptation of his work):

Picked up Nexus Omnibus Vol. 1.  Just started, and while I doubt it's going to be among my favourites, it's a pretty solid read so far.  Curious to see where it goes.

Thanks for the heads up on that Elric book, I'm all over that when it comes out.

Just got that myself at Rose City and got it signed by the creators. Never read it and looking forward to it.

Though they do have the original: http://www.amazon.com/Super-Dictionary-Warner-Educational-Services/dp/0030437563/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1411600096&sr=1-1&keywords=super+dictionary

Dang. That's way out of my price range. There's got to be a digitized version somewhere... Off to the Google Machine I go!

In its day, Nexus was pretty much the most interesting/revolutionary series out there.  I still think of it quite fondly (and have my set safely boxed away).

I've got a page of original art from B&W Nexus #2 [a key plot point occurs on the page]*.  Later Steve Rude autographed it for me (this was many, many years ago).  One of these days I have to set aside the money and wallspace to frame and hang some of the original art I have.  It is a shame to have most of it sitting in an artist portfolio carrying/protective case. :(

* This spoiler is for a major plot point/spoiler for that second issue.

It's out, I actually got a copy in the mail today. Due to a family emergency situation, I'm not really in a mood to read it right now unfortunately.

I started buying some of those Profolio books with the big sleeves to hold my original art. Then it's like I'm collecting my own artbook. There are a few pieces I have framed (like my Stan Sakai watercolor.)

Deadpool Bi-Annual (aka the one with Brute Force)

Holy Crap!

Yeah I should have been a lot more specific.  It was a lot of fun.  Though being my first Deadpool one, some of it caught me offguard.  It was nice seeing Brute Force in action, too.  Also...

I just read this one, myself. I have to say, Seaworld revenge fantasy is a much underutilized genre of storytelling...

I read the Elric book last night, it was really good, I'm looking forward to more. It's supposed to be the first part of a 4-part series.

Okay, what the heck?

All of these were released today:



I don't recall ever seeing the "stand chest to chest and stare at each other" pose before, and yet here are three all on the same day, and from different companies and artists.
