    LOL, wish you would've said that initially so I wouldn't have wasted almost half an hour looking for it!

    It definitely deserved better and it may get it at some point in the future. I suppose we should be grateful that we got an OHC instead of just a TPB, as was the case with Kimg's DC work (Mister Miracle and Omega Men).

    I've started reading The Star Wars OHC (Lucas Draft Deluxe Edition Box Set) from Dark Horse by J.W. Rinzler, Mike Mayhew and Rain Beredo.

    I just read Rick Veitch's The One and Brat Pack. I loved him as an artist on Swamp Thing, but I did not know what to expect as a writer. Both books seem much more grounded in underground comics and satire than I expected. Brat Pack is especially subversive and macabre with it's humor and grotesque art work. There are some truly disturbing images and ideas in both books. Brat Pack is dedicated to Wertham and that really should say it all. Both books are compared to Dark Knight and Watchmen but those books seem much less unhinged than The One or Bratpack. If you ever wondered what would happen if R. Crumb wrote superhero comics, these books might be for you!

    I’ve not read much Wildstorm, but I admit that I have added a bunch of it to my “to check out” list after helping you with those binds and reading your posts about them.

    Mister Miracle by Tom King. Almost finished. It is the best I have read from Tom King. Sooo good. It helps to read the Fourth World material. If you haven’t and pick this up you may want to at least google the characters who aren’t named Mister Miracle/Barda.

    Just finished Absolute planetary 1 & 2 and it’s as good if not better than i remember, now on to Absolute Preacher book 1, which isn’t as good as I remember but then again I do think Ennis is a one trick pony, and that trick grew thin years ago

    Just out of interest, what would you say is Ennis' best stuff? I've read very little by him.

    Before I started to re-read Preacher I probably would of said that, I have a few Ennis books, The Boys, the Punisher stuff, actually, thinking about it, it’s been a while since I read it and it may also disappoint me after all this time, but I’d go with hitman being his best stuff, when he’s given free reign, it’s as if profanity and gruesome deaths take the place of a good story, being tied to the DC proper (somewhat) forced him to concentrate on character and story, and it was much better, be nice to get a Hitman omni

    I finished reading The Star Wars Lucas Draft Deluxe Edition Box Set. It's comprised of three larger than the regular OHC sized books. The first contains issues #1-8, the second sketches and layouts which was issue #0 and the third a beautiful cover portfolio. The story itself is ok and could have done with a little bit better dialogue at times and jumps a bit, but then again they were basing it on Lucas's draft and he's not the best when it comes to writing dialogue. The art by Mike Mayhew, in particular the detail on the faces is quite beautiful. It's a little "jerky" on some of rhe action scenes, though. Overall, a very nice boxset and s must for Star Wars fans.

    Uncanny X-Men Omnibus Volume 3. Out of the first 3 omnibus volumes, this is my favorite.

    The Brood Saga, the Magik mini, the Wolverine mini, God Loves, Man Kills OGN, & Rogue joining the X-Men. All fantastic stuff!
