    I'll be grabbing the Fear Agent book for sure. I didn't know Ennis was writing Dan Dare, I'll give that a look as well. Didn't make it in to the shop last week, so I have to grab the latest issue of The Boys as well. Gonna keep the run of AS Batman and Robin going too, just can't not buy it.

    Casanova is probably my favorite comic at the moment. It's one sexy book.

    I'm intrigued by Dan Dare, but all I know of the concept I learned from the Morrison/Hughes novella.

    Mostly waiting for Casanova 11. That book has a lot of the sexy, and the sexy is good.
    Also the final volume of Genshiken, even if i'm a little concerned because the last volume i read was very bland.

    The sad thing is that my subscription box has more and more manga. But the only good things are written by some guy named Ellis with the occasional Criminal and Casanova, which i really love. Everything else is manga.

    To anyone into comics,the recent Moon Knight Annual written by novelist Duane Swierczynski was quite a shock.I thought the monthly series was not all that great,in my opinion.But this was one of the best comics I've read all year.

    I picked this up after reading a preview,simple and powerful tale about how a simple encounter with one of these masked vigilantes can empower the everyday individual,in this case a rape victim.

    Casanova, Fear Agent, and Madman are at the top of my list, but I won't be picking any of it up until next weeks comics. Lazy UPS bastards.

    Dan Dare #1 and Proof #2 are the big draws for me this week - but I'm still going to pick up all the mainstream rubbish I've been buying the last twenty years.

    And this Flying Friar thing...if Midtown have it like Rich claims they will, I suppose I should give that a go too...

    I am really excited about Dan Dare as a concept, but if it's Ennis' typical style I might be a let down. I'm not saying he is a poor writer it's just that very few of his books appeal to me. Sometimes he tries a little too hard to be gritty. I hope it's a little more fun than say The Boys or Punisher, more Emerald Isle or Pilgrim would suit my tastes.

    I just found out about the Flying Friar from here and that seems interesting.

    So does Springheeled Jack Vol 1 Strange Visitor...

    Presents might be a fun romp or utter merde.

    A lot of people have shared your sentiment about the Moon Knight monthly and sometimes I feel like it's a little slapdash as well. However, you should check out some of Charlie Huston's novels. They're great reads and it captures his gritty style with a little less of the Khonshu mess.

    ah, the new Casanova. That reminds me. Very late on ordering the hardcover. Gave me flashbacks of sorts, but far more glamorous.

    Finished that new Goon graphic novel the other day. Liked it, but by far prefer it when it's absurd. Suspicious of a character in straight noir when previous it's been slapstick horror-pulp. Even though it was a complete work, it felt unfinished, like chuckle-worthy hatchet in the head panel should be inserted here and there. Awkward gearshift in tone.

    All my DC is Geoff Johns flavoured. My Marvel comes in either JMS or Brubaker/Fraction. Dan Dare will probably be the highlight in the coming month, sharing the centre-stage with the new Suburban Glamour, Faker, and Doktor Sleepless.

    TPB purchases will include Casanova (as soon as there's an affordable softcover) and Tom Strong.

    Make mine Casanova, please. That book owns me every time. I'm really no match for it. It just bowls me right over. And now, with the blue, sheesh, it's even more insane.

    adding to list, I also picked up Faker this week
    and Hellblazer - Hellblazer was pretty weak for
    a while there, but Andy diggle seems to have brought john back to where he needs to be
    (plus Map re-appears, and it's a one-shot.)

    beyond that I got in tp's of Strange Kisses
    and Strange Killings in anticipation of #0
    of Gravel.

    Issue #20 of the Berserk manga just came out in the U.S. I'm a huge fan plus the anime is the best thing going.

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this but, when, if ever, are we going to see more Wolfskin? I only have issues 2 and 3.
