And really?
I do like some stuff by Garth Ennis, Hitman I really enjoyed, for example. I think he hit the characters spot on, and while some of it was questionable, it didn't seem like it was trying way too hard, unlike Preacher. Also, the artist for Preacher, Steve Dillon I think, draws incredibly boringly. Didn't draw me in at all.

I love Frank Miller's art, but his story writing - not so much. Which is funny, since he apparently got into the business to become a writer rather than artist.

And yes, it's true.

I meant the studio version on the One single... oh. Of course. Which you've never listened to!

My own explanation for my stinginess is that I'd rather the money be in my pocket than in some other bastard's!

And I haven't come across much of Frank Miller apart from his Dark Knight stuff and some of his Daredevil stuff. Worth looking into?

I actually own a copy of the One CD single.



In mint condition.

Yeah, it almost ruins the original for me.

OK, here's one thing that stops me taking graphic novels seriously: Dark Knight? Daredevil? Preacher? Hitman? How cliche and six year old does this want to be?

I once ordered a stash of U2 stuff online that was going at a good price. It happened to be one of the items. I think that's when I got Passengers and the MDH soundtrack too.

Ronin is meant to be good, but I haven't read it. The Sin City series is pretty cool. 300 is worth a look at for the art alone, but the story itself is just a dumbed down Battle of Thermopylai (though it's not nearly as stupid as the movie).

All of those are squarely aimed at males from about 18-36 with IQs of under 110, which may explain the titles.

I still like Hitman, though.

That is true, although a title like "The Anarchist Left Faction: Baader-Meinhof against Germany" for graphic novels obviously doesn't work well.

Axver, I plan on writing and illustrating a comic book within the next few years. It's set around 180BC when the Romans were fighting the Iberians in Spain. It's a story about identity, not so much history. What so you think the title should be?

Just like half of everything nowadays ...

Am I the only person who wants to throw their TV out the window when an ad for Big Bother's Big Mouth comes on?

I think we can, even if I go to bed a little late I'll still have no problem getting up in the morning. Tomorrow's lesson we're discussing Francisco Goya.
