    I've recently bought the first Coda paperback by Boom Studios. That is one colourful apocalyptic redemption story! Lovely slash superb artwork and a nice tone to boot.

    Also for your pulpy needs: the newly started (#8) Venom series comes highly recommended. A troubled Eddie Brock, XL Venomesque monsters and a very modern and detailed drawing style that reminds me of Greg Capullo... They changed artist with issue #8 but he's also no slouch.

    Hurrah for British superheroes and their totally small time powers!
    Whatever happened to this? There was never a 2nd edition?

    Just the one so far. I think it was a one shot to test the waters for a full series.

    Reviews were a bit mixed and it probably was a bit confused trying to cram so much into a single issue and maybe assuming too much knowledge on behalf of the reader.

    They seem committed to bringing more old titles back so I think we'll see them again.

    It was a bit confusing and I'm pretty sure the story wasn't finished.

    In a couple of weeks time the baby is being moved into her own room. I have 6 months worth of 2000ad and all of the ultimate collection to catch up with for bedtime reading. Yes!

    Alien 3 fans might be interested to read the new comic series based on the original script, writtten by William Gibson.

    Iíve finally finished Fables! I think I literally started it about a decade ago. Maybe longer.

    One of the reasons it took so long is because it becomes a major slog once the first proper arc (The Emperor arc) finishes. The first 80 comics or whatever it is are absolutely fantastic and right up there with anything else Vertigo did in its heyday.

    But it should have ended there. And I suspect it was always intended to. After that they make up a lot of shit with flashbacks to effectively retcon another arc that was supposedly there all along, and itís pretty meh. Itís a shame.

    Was still sad to see it end but it doesnít go out on a high, which is unusual for Vertigo as that was one of their strengths.

    I've just fallen in love with Outer Darkness by John Layman. I hadn't even heard of it until I saw a random tweet, and I would've been all over it as I loved Chew.

    It's Star Trek, with demons and stuff. The ship's engine is a captured god, and it feeds on human sacrifices! Layman is messed up. There's 11 issues so far, and it's just great.

    The White Trees by Chip Z was pretty awesome, too.

    Iím still working my way through Chew. I dip in and out. I like it but I donít love it. Itís a nice concept but it sometimes feels like itís trying a bit too hard to keep going.
