    Miller and Romita's "Man Without Fear" is not a run, it's more like a mini-series (and a retelling of the origin), Miller/Janson run is longer and lasted from 1979 to 1983, there's many compilations, some come in TBP or Omnibus.

    If you don't want to read the whole run you can just check out "Born Again", that's a story inside Miller/Janson run that is a must for the character.

    AAAAAAHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA... finally done this binge of comics. 147 individual issues (the most comics I've ever read... ever).

    Did it do what I wanted it to? Too early to tell I think (in one sense it did, watching McFarlane's style and ideas evolve was a secondary goal)... did I enjoy it? Why yes I did. I'm looking forward to whenever I do another binge on the Age of Apocalypse stuff (older and newer). Will I pick any more? Ooo... tough to say. A strong maybe, if I see things that look interesting (Marvel 1602 might do it).

    Obviously, everyone will have heard this news already. What a week though, first Neal Adams and then George Perez. RIP George!

    I've been going through the Humanoids Megabundle Featuring The Incal - Humble Bundle books the past couple of weeks and I have to say it's weird.

    I'm currently going through the Metabarons set of books and they're pretty wild. I read Othon & Honorata (goodreads groups them like that) a month ago and my thoughts are that it's a really long story that is impressive in scope and artistry. I wish the conceit of the story - the robots telling the story, that is - wasn't as grating though. The one robot keeps saying "yo this is so exciting I'm going to blow a gasket!" and the other one keeps telling it to shut up. It's like if R2 *AND* 3PO could talk and were both complete trash robots.

    I get some of the stilted language is due to translation but it sticks out when it happens. Not enough for me to say "oh this is terrible!" but enough to call it out.

    Finished Aghnar & Oda yesterday. I still think the overall storytelling conceit of the two robots needs to be jettisoned. The best part of the book was when the one removed the vocal circuits (or whatever) of the one who keeps interrupting.

    The stories themselves are still interesting, though there are certainly parts where you think "oh so you're telling ~15 stories in seven pages because there are two panels per page with a small "the battle of ___, and the battle of ___" with each panel. Cool.

    I will say that every time they show Aghnar reach down and 'boop' his feet off made me laugh. such an unnecessary panel to include but I love that it's there, every time.

    I can't choose between a 3 and 4 because of the robots so 3.5 it is.

    I also read Alexandro Jodorowsky's Screaming Planet Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. Interesting that it was split up that way since the book itself doesn't appear to be split? even the digital files vol 2 just kind of starts. Anyway, This is a rag-tag bunch of stories and artists. Some of them are downright amazing - The Invasion / Robochrist / The Loyal Khondor - while others are just weird for weird's sake - Eucharist Sun/ The Debt. Though Tears of Gold is also good in that the story has a better 'moral' than the rest with a beginning/middle/end for the horrible family therein. (Spoilers for Thor 4 - this story came to mind at certain parts of the film)

    The general conceit is laid out in the first story and the way that pushes through to the others is a very interesting way to give the stories their impetus.

    Basic question about Metabarons: WTF.

    They're also notorious for overcharging for everything they sell. It's a cool place to visit, but I would never buy anything there. Also it's insane how horrible their website continues to be. They legit haven't updated it since the 90s, I'm pretty sure.

    Motherfucker. Alan Grant has died. This has been a terrible stretch in the comic world as of late.

    Die by Kieron Gillen
    The Wicked + The Divine writer Kieron Gillen teams up with artist supernova Stephanie Hans (WicDiv, Journey Into Mystery) for her first ongoing comic. Die is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of forty-something adults have to deal with the returning, unearthly horror they only just survived as teenage role-players. If Kieron's in a rush, he describes it as "Goth Jumanji", but that's only the tip of this obsidian iceberg.
    Imagine D&D but real and forty years after the last game gave your group PTSD and also left one of your party with only one arm. There's also an RPG to go with it but as it spoils the fourth volume (endgame spoilers I guess) Kieron says to let it be until you get there organically.



    The art in WicDiv was really good - until it wasn't, for reasons that I guess make/made sense at one point to someone. Anyway, this continues the artgasm and if anything rolls it up a notch. sorry, really bad pun. not intended!

    Treated myself for my birthday a couple weeks ago and got a few Silver and Bronze age Superman and Fourth World keys, including some classic covers and first appearances (including Darkseid), not to mention Jack Kirby's first DC work.

    It's not every day you get a shout out from one of your favorite comic creators!

    Backstory: a couple weeks ago Terry tweeted that he was looking for a very specific Totoro toy that his wife had loved and lost. He offered a free sketch if someone could find one for him to purchase. I set out to scouring the web and managed to find one on Etsy. I wasn't the only one that found it, but the issue was that the owner of the Etsy shop was on vacation which also made it look like the toy was sold out. Terry wrote it off.

    Meanwhile I set up notifications for the Etsy store to get notified when the seller was back, and when they were, sure enough, the Totoro was listed as in stock again. I sent Terry some messages to make sure he knew, and he was able to get it, and offered me the free sketch for my help! This is the sketch he made for me, featuring Francine & Katchoo of Strangers in Paradise holding the Totoro. Soooooo excited to get it!
