Cursed Pirate Girl by Jeremy Bastian

Wow...just Wow

This is an amazing book that appeared on comic shop shelves this week and it's like a DIY comic from a brilliant friend living in the 19th century. The silver inked logo and stamped price on the cover make it feel like Bastian made the comic just for you. And once you go inside, the artwork looks a bit Yellow Kid,… Continue

Top comic book runs (#5-#1)

5. Usagi Yojimbo – Stan Sakai

Like Jeff Smith, Wendy & Richard Pini, and Dave Sim, Stan Sakai made comics his way, telling stories about feudal Japan through the eyes of a ronin rabbit. And while it could have lent itself to parody, and make no mistake, parts of Usagi are hilarious, Sakai made us believe in an ancient time populated by animal-people and taught us Japanese history and life truths simultaneously.

Wolverine - Prodigal Son review

Anyway, Antony Johnston (a British writer who has done work I've liked at Oni) and Filipino artist Wilson Tortosa are the team behind this new Wolverine series. You have to know absolutely nothing about… Continue

Bill, just saw your post. The list I put up "usually" does not include special orders for subs. Pluto is on the list but not Masterpiece HC. I e-mailed you about masterpiece and cursed pirate girl but I will call Diamond to see if they know anything.

Well, I bought Zot today, Doc! Looking greatly forward to reading it and letting you know what I think. I suspect this will go over better than Runaways did.

Thanks for the welcome! I'm a huge Doctor Who fan as well (and Torchwood...).
