    Loved Hip Hop Family Tree,never finished Wizzy Wigg. And Red Room is ok i guess. Not a big fan of his stuff.

    • Sgt Rock vs The Army of the Dead was great. Good story amazing art,on the covers and interiors.

      And it feels like Bruce Campbell is a Rock fan. Amazon had this on sale for like 12 to 15 bucks and it is worth that if you enjoy DC War stuff.

        I'll pick this up if the price comes down in the UK. Highly unlikely but you never know. Hopefully there'll be a paperback if not.
        I'm bitter, I'm twisted, James Joyce is fucking my sister.

          Yea it's 25 bucks cover price is a bit high. For a book I read in 25 minutes. Give DC this the few of their hardcovers I own are all so nice.

          • I bought the issues as they came out and agree it was a fun read, but yeah, it's over really quickly. I think Campbell would be a good choice for a Sgt. Rock movie and reading it made me wonder if that might happen some day.
            Rock! Shock! Pop!

            • Had a bit to kill before lunch. Blew through this trade. Sure it is only 5 issues of Black Hood,plus a Vampironica for some reason.

              Back from the west coast our lead is trying to stay off the pills and not be the Black Hood again. Of course he gets dragged back into the underworld.

              Same writer as vol 1,this time it is a different artist on each issue. Which hurts a bit.

              Got vol 3 on it's way. Wish this Dark Circle line from Archie had done better. Really good stuff that either didn't sell or got postponed to work on the Riverdale TV show.

              • Got in vol 3 and just read it.

                At least the writer knew he had to wrap it up in 5 issues. Curious about the sales figures on this season. Greg Scott handles the art this time and I do like his art.

                Nice way of bringing the run full circle that I forgot about. But this came out in what 2016 been close to 10 years since my last time reading it.

                Debating on starting Manifest Destiny vol 2 or going to bed.

                • Wetworks volume 2 TPB 2

                  Never read vol 1 of Wetworks. Got this trade cheap and figured what the hell. Betting when Portacio was writing it the stories were not as good. Mike Carey is writing and weaves a military thriller mixed with a dash of royalty in fighting.

                  • Stormwatch PHD vol 3-collects issues 13-17

                    Don't think I read any of the Wildstorm titles from this era. Which is right before DC tried to merge Wildstorm into the DC proper universe.

                    This is more back to the Stormwatch stories of Ellis' era. Big threats. Usually taken care of in 1 or 2 issues. Lots of hard choices. And left me wanting to finish the run.

                    • Read the Constantine TPB on the left today.

                      Second collection of this series from the New 52 run. JL Dark is missing. Mister E is killing all the magicians and after getting all this solved,the world gets attacked by the BLIGHT.

                      And now John must lead revamped JL Dark,including Nightmare Nurse/Swamp Thing/The Phantom Stranger. Where they go from the Outskirts of Heaven. Meeting God who is a scotty dog.

                      All so John can somewhat redeem his soul by saving the one person he loves,besides himself.

                      Yea I'm biased I have loved pretty much every version of this character in comics. I didn't hate the Reeves movie. And the TV show was a must see TV for me the short time it aired.

                      This was more than worth the 4 bucks it cost me at Ollies. Bad thing is I want the two other TPBs that finish this run. Vol 4 I can get cheap. Vol 3 is OOP and at least 5 bucks over cover price.

                      Might just grab the issues for the rest of this run. But yea if you enjoy the asshole magician John Constantine give this a read.

                      • Supreme Blue Rose

                        Read this when it was coming out,but re-reading it today realized I remember nothing of it.

                        Feels like Ellis trying to take what Moore created on Supreme and connecting it to the Pre-Moore Supreme and setting it up where anyone could take over and do whatever they wanted.

                        Didn't Warren Ellis do Project Superpowers Black Cross? Cause this is a very similar plot.

                        Amazing art and the writing kept my reading until it was over.

                        A-

                        • So Rick Veitch posted about how DC is considering publishing issue 88 of Swamp Thing.

                          Rick said to email
                          publishswampthing88@gmail.com

                          And DC is reading the emails sent in and I guess gaging interest.

                          No clue if it will work. But I have wanted to read that issue for over half my life now.
