    I have really not been into Joe Golem as much as Mike's other stuff.

    1/23/19 - I've since collected all the Joe Golem TPB and new series, digging it now. It took a while for me to warm up to it and "get it", but I am loving it now.

    Very cool, since I haven't read the novel I have no idea what is going to happen.

    I just read through the trades and The Copper Girl (first time for that one), with plans to dig back into the novel before the adaptation completes. I read it when it initially came out, but haven’t had a chance to revisit it

    I haven't been keeping up with comics very well for a little while, but I just read on Mignolaversity that this is the end of the series (unless I'm misreading it). Is this true?

    I wasn't involved in that article, so I don't know for sure. I suspect it is the end of Joe Golem: Occult Detective, and will be followed up by Joe Golem: <New Subtitle>.

    Hopefully the next series will have a different artist. The current book continues to disappoint in depicting the Drowned City and Joe.
    If i hadn't read the novel, I would have no sense of the world in which this takes place. And the next series will be after the novel. I doubt I will read it with Bergting drawing.

    I see, thank you. That would make more sense.

    Same here, I never saw the drowned city here...it always looked like Venice to me.

    Patrick is a hard act to follow. It’s a shame they didn’t get someone with the same grit to their work. It’s a jarring shift, to be sure.

    It’s also a shame Patrick left, seemingly to pitch a creator owned book somewhere, and is now drawing a Mask comic instead.

    I don’t mind rotating artists on books, but it would be nice if they had more in common stylistically.

    Oh well, another issue as we limp toward the conclusion of the graphic novelization. If I hadn't read the novel, I would not know what was going on in these panels.
