Edgier. Understatement for anything Millar writes. 

Not everything, Huck by Millar was a lovely story and not edgy at all.

 

Also his Superman comics were great too and he is one of the few superheros, he really understands and writes well.

Why you hiding it from the wife? 

 

It is incredibly pornographic and I doubt she’d appreciate what Moore was trying to say, by having Dorothy Gale shag The Scarecrow, the Tin Man & the Cowardly Lion.

Exactly the answer I wanted. I'm tempted to offer and I don't think my better half would even question it.

Superb article here I thought and good for anyone wanting some recommends. 

 

http://www.vulture.com/article/100-most-influential-pages-comic-book-history.html

 

No mention of anything British mind. No Eagle or 2000ad. 

In a list of the most influential comic book pages, I'd have seriously expected to see the words "Gaze into the fist of Dredd", or maybe even something from Nemesis the Warlock.

There was nothing that wasnt American was there? No Moebius? No Heavy Metal. No Manga. 

 

It's a good article and I do agree with a lot of it. but it should be titled 100 most influential American comic book pages.

It does list some of the restrictions early on:

And, this being comics, we had to get a little nitpicky: We’re only dealing with comics first published by North American publishing houses, and we’re not including newspaper comic strips, webcomics, or reprints thereof.

 

The omission of newspaper Sunday strips seems really bizarre and arbitrary to me, especially in a list which is focused on influentiality. The lines between newspaper strips and published comic books are often quite blurred, as they acknowledge with some of their entries: Pogo, The Spirit, even Action Comics no. 1.

 

It also means they didn't get to talk about George Herriman's Krazy Kat. :(

 

Also, they picked the wrong Hellboy page - shoulda been this!

Alex Ross is doing more than just one cover for the upcoming Immortal Hulk series! Below the cover for #1 that I already posted a while ago, followed by #2 and #3 respectively.

I don't know if anyone else is interested, apologies if not. But I really like these pieces of artwork and I thought I'd share. Especially #3. I'm still hoping the series itself won't disappoint!

I'm always interested in cool comic book art no matter the character or the artist, so the more posts the better as far as I'm concerned (it's why https://twitter.com/coolcomicart is one of my favourite Twitter accounts to follow).

 

And while I wouldn't consider myself a massive fan of the Hulk, I really like where they seem to be heading with this series, so it'll be cool to see how it develops.

 

In other Marvel stuff I see from the July Solicits that there's yet another X-book on the way teased for now as `X Classified`.  Because we all, definitely, 100% need another X-Men title right now. :wacko:

Oh and Black Hammer is currently on sale £1.99 for vols 1 and 2 on comiXology. 

 

Its a cracking read. Written by Jeff Lemire and lovely art by Dean Ormiston 

 

Read both issues of this. Intriguing stuff, but have to disagree on the art - I thought it was hideously ugly throughout.
