I thought it was an okay, but confusing ending to a confusing story. I would've liked a little more explanation on the relationship between the survivors from now and the girl from the future.

Goddamn American Vampire is great! I bought the first TPB recently, which led to me getting vol 2, then volume 3...

Yesterday I went to the comic shop to begrudgingly pick up my comics that I seem to pick up once a month instead of every week, and softened the blow of forcing myself to read shitty comics by picking up American Vampire volumes 4 and 5 in TPB. Just finished reading volume 4 a few minutes ago, and MAN what a treat! Even when they change up artists for an arc it's still good. Love the generational tale of all these families of humans and vampires, and how their lives intersect with each other over the decades.

Now I have to wait for the TPB version of volume 6 with the two oversized oneshots (don't want to jump between hardcover and softcover, I'll just stick with one format), and then next YEAR to get the TPB version of volume 7 from the current series. It's so much easier being a Johnny Come Lately and not having to wait!

Forgot this thread was a thing. Anybody else read Royals: Masters of War? A great look at super powered beings in WWII.

I'm probably boring but the Alan Moore Swamp Thing books are just Great, and you can easily continue reading the new ones afterwards.

Interview with Lee and Didio
Quote:
Over the last five or 10 years, Vertigo has gotten smaller in terms of its creator-driven projects. Image Comics, at that same time, has been expanding. Is it a conscious strategy to reduce your emphasis on those types of products? If not, what’s your strategy to counter it?

Lee: We’ve actually increased the number of periodicals, but we’ve probably reduced the total amount of Vertigo product in that we pulled back on the OGNs and other book format projects. It is a huge priority for us; it is something the company believes in very strongly.

If you look at what we’re going to do in 2015 (which I’m not at liberty to discuss at this moment), possibly first quarter next year, you’ll see that we’re going through a major effort to rebrand the imprint. That’s going to come about through the projects themselves.

We’re working on a hit list of the top creators in the business and we have some exciting news to unveil in the early part of 2015.

You just can’t rest on your laurels, especially on a creator-driven business. You don’t have the legacy of characters like Batman and Superman to draw upon. It really all comes down to the creators and the concepts that they bring to the table.

We work very closely with Geoff Johns and his group to maximize the impact of these projects, not just through publishing, but beyond through the Warner Bros. family. That’s been a part of our strategy. Stay tuned to 2015; there’s a lot of amazing things in the works.

Yeah, I love American Vampire.

I've read the first three issues of Second Cycle, but so far, it's just as good as the first series.

POP! SLAM! KRAK! BANG! Sound effects bring that extra bit of vibrancy to an already exciting comics page! Following the success of Vertigo’s CMYK Quarterly Anthology, which explored the four colors that make up a comic book, we continue to push the boundaries of short storytelling with 2015’s SFX Quarterly Anthology. Comics luminaries will converge with the next generation of talent as they interpret four different sound effects, leading to mind-bending innovations in story and art.

Read The Twilight Children #1, that was a very very good first issue. Darwyn Cooke's art does most of the heavy lifting (as it should when you have an artist of his caliber on a book) and is gorgeous as always.

Gilbert Hernandez's certainly wasn't a slouch in this issue either, his writing just flows smoothly from page to page. Too often these days I read a comic and the dialogue/narration doesn't feel natural, none of that here, the book just sucks you in and ends with a nice hook to leave you wanting more.

4.5/5

Wholeheartedly agree. I don't think I have read any of Hernandez's work before and I am always interested in Cooke's art. Cooke talked up the writer quite a bit beforehand and they did not disappoint.
