    Tha's my hunch, too. I have to admit, I have been glancing at eBay a little more often than is strictly healthy.

    Just read #1. Nice work, fellas.

    I think special mention should go to Felipe Sobreiro's colours: very clean, nice use of differing yet complimentary palettes for the two story threads. I'm colour blind and when the colouring is too busy or from a too limited part of the spectrum, it makes the action harder to follow and detracts from the book as a whole. Absolutely not the case here. The art is clean and crisp, even when it's violent and dirty. [Although completely different stylistically, the first comparison that springs to mind is McNiven and Ponsor's current work on Captain America].

    As for the story: The Hercules Method is great. (Won't talk any more about the story. Don't want to ruin it for anyone, loved that page, though)

    The only negative is the fact that that wanker Mark Millar had the nerve to release Superior while you were still working on this. But the similarities are amazingly superficial it's just... I read them both today... On the plus side: you've been lumped in with Captain America and Millarworld first time out. That has to be worth something.

    I'm along for the ride. Let's go!

    Hey, look at that: your first proper Whitechapel review!

    @VickVega - Hope you enjoyed it man!

    @Nick - Thanks, man! Finding the right colorist for a project is the hardest part, even moreso than finding the right artist. Felipe is just knocking it out of the park with his colors, which is an aspect of comics that I don't think gets enough credit. Colors can really make or break the mood of the book, so getting Felipe, who gets what we're doing, was a hige boon to the book.

    Finally found a copy! It took a trip to the horrible mall-thing to acquire, but seeing as one comic gets lonely I used it as an excuse to snag DMZ v6. So a good day's comic buying overall. Can't wait for the next issue. :)

    It was too violent! My sensibilities!

    But really I enjoyed it a whole bunch.

    @James - Ack, the mall! Well, I'm glad it was worth it!

    @DJ Stawes - Don't worry, the rest are much less violent*. Sensibilities restored.



    *This may be a lie.

    I thought the hook was good, good enough to buy issue #2. The dialogue got a bit annoying to me at times but i liked it overall. I will follow this to the end because i love creator owned work, and because the art is fucking narley. What's up with the muscle vision?

    Read it last night before bed-- thought it was quite great.
    Sorta funny-ish story: I missed picking it up the first week out, but after hearing some pretty stellar reviews, decided to make sure to nab it on week 2-- I swing by the Image section and can't find a copy. So I go to the guy at the counter and ask-- dude flips out! Turns out HE'D just read it the night before and popped all his remaining copies up by the register. It was noon, and he'd already sold 8 copies. I was the 9th...glad I got there when I did, because I'm sure he sold out by the end of the day.

    Anyhow-- great book. I'm on board.

    Really good book, I'm in for the whole series. I have a feeling this is going to be a fun ride.

    Glad you're liking our comic!

    Justin and Tradd are at NYCC, if you're up there, look them up...

    Our second issue is out today, with this badass cover:



    I actually think this one is better than the first one, but I don't want to set expectations too high.

    Also out today is the second printing of the first issue, so if you missed it the first go round or want the shiny new cover:



    I'd love to hear what you all thought of this one, good or bad.

    Just read number 2. Good follow on to the set up in #1 and just enough of the right stuff to keep me reading to see where it's all heading.

    Good job.

    the page turn dropping back to reality AND THEN YOU FUCKED HER!


    is the funniest moment of the past few weeks worth of comics!

    Part of me wants to nit-pick a few details, but for the most part I'm enjoying the hell out of this.

    Let me know if you want a break-down of the two things that slightly bugged me and I'll go into excruciating detail. :)

    I've really been digging it. Great art, great writing. I'm in love with Luther's girlfriend.
