    Ah, well I can wait. I just feared that it got canned or something.

    I really enjoyed Dan Dare #1 as it happens.

    VERY much moving in the same headspace as Ministry Of Space (I might just be thinking this because of Chris Weston and Gary Erskine having worked together a lot before), but that's a good thing. This is the Garth Ennis I like: taut, meaningful adventure, not "LOOK! I JUST SHOWED JESUS SUCKING JEFFREY DAHMER'S COCK!". It's a shame the other one comes out and plays too often.

    Christ. I hadn't even realized, but hey it left me wanting more. Still need to find #1.

    Ennis' Midnighter had a bit of a comedic vibe to it, e.g. gags about kicking Hitler in the balls, it was trashy fun for a while and the Chris Sprouse art on the first arc was stunning.

    Then there were a few single issue stories from different writers and artists, the standout being Special K. Vaughn pulling a Memento, illustrating Midi's 'perception' (well drawn by Darick Robertson).

    But the book's found it's voice under current writer Keith Giffen, who's rightly ditched the white suit and shades 'away kit' and is having a bit of fun with America's homeland security obsession and placing the character in situations he can't kill his way out of.

    If you like your comic stories to be dark and brief try Murky Depths. Issue #2 is just out. You don't just get strips though, so if you're a purest read no further (Although if you pick up a copy of Murky Depths you might find you're not such a purest after all.). ImagineFX describes Murky Depths as "a new book-cum-magazine with echoes of the great 1950s US horror and sci-fi comics."

    Not sure if that description is true but other people have likened it to Heavy Metal, but with high production values. It's UK small press but looks and feels like a pro mag. But then, I am going to say good things about it aren't I?
