all three of the covers so far have been exemplary, hopefully the story and art of the comic measure up. this is the new title i'm most excited (heh) about.
Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

It's finally here!! It's not a hoax. It's not a dream. A brand-new issue of LIBERTY MEADOWS. Testosterone and estrogen runs high as Ralph and Jen race for speed supremacy. Frank battles his inner demons as Brandy's wedding nears.

That does seem remarkably lame, and I don't even read the title.

I'm fast becoming disappointed with UFF. Each issue Millar tries less and less...

If I must have one thing in May, it'll be this...

Often referred to as the "artist's artist," BRIAN BOLLAND has spent the last quarter century producing some of the most memorable and inspiring illustrations the comic industry has ever seen. This handsome volume is a retrospective of this astonishing artist's career and a look at the man himself.

FIVE FISTS OF SCIENCE GN
written by MATT FRACTION
art & cover by STEVEN SANDERS
May 17 o 112 pg o FC o $12.99

True story: in 1899, Mark Twain and Nikola Tesla decided to end war forever. With Twain's connections and Tesla's inventions, they went into business, selling world peace.

So what happened?

Only now can the tale be told-- in which Twain and Tesla collided with Edison and Morgan, an evil science cabal merging the Black Arts and the Industrial Age. Turn of the century New York City sets the stage for a titanic battle over the very fate of the mankind.


Okay, this is completely ripped off of a Geoffrey A. Landis story called They Eyes of America. I know fanboys love to pull the 'I liked it better when it was called...' card, but this is pretty shameless. I'd be very surprised if this was a coincidence.

EDIT: Oh, and the name is stolen from Jim Ottaviani's Two Fisted Science.

What is original in this deconstructionist, appropriated era? Warren Ellis? Yes! No. I seem to recall a humorous comic touching on the idea many years back, but it was not the center of the story.

Ah, Ottaviani! I've got Dignifying Science and Fallout. The latter was where I learned that Jeff Jones had gender-reassignment surgery some years back. The bio didn't mention her current name, though.

There seems to be a lot coming out which is going tto me brokesville for me, but I hve one problem, I missed getting brubakers captain america run, but I dont want to buy a hardcover which only covers like 5 issues because its expensive. Why not release those as paperbacks because they make them cheaper for the odinary joe like they used to and then do a hardcover which runs over 12 or 13 issues? It means that with The Winter Soilder Arc or even Young Avengers it means There that bit more expensive than I can justify spending. Does anyone else have a problem with this?
i wish my middle name was tiberius.
