    Just read it excellent read as always and some crazy set ups and revelations about the good doctor. A solid issue all around...

    Awesome!

    I'm liking this book more each issue, mostly because I (think I)understand where it's going now. There weren't quite enough fetish suits or 'splosions for my tastes, but I'm sure Ellis will rectify this soon enough.

    Revelations on H-Plates. Learned the abbreviated history of Nurse. Learned who suspects whom of what. And finally got a good explanation of Sleepless' plan, although I suspect he's being hyperbolic.

    My favorite issue yet, if only because it renders more cogent what I've read before.

    I would post what I think but, in further evidence that I live in a place technology forgot, our shipment of comics this week was sent to Calgary. That's right - all the comics bound for my sleepy island went to Alberta. Thank you, Canada Post.

    motherfrakkin Apocalypse Bunker! damn. WANT!

    apart from that, my fave bit is that the Grinder kids are off to fuck shit up.. the Doktor's going to get the chaos he's desired soon enough

    and off course, just when we think we've maybe got a handle on what the Doktor is, Warren throws in the blood-swap..
    back to the theories we go :D

    The thing that's got me curious are the cyber-angel things. I thought that this might be one of the good Doktor's schemes, but here it seemed like it would mess up the Doktor's plans...

    @vrbtm more cogent?

    When I read this issue, I had the distinct feeling that some pages were out of order. Like why is the Nurse saying "WTF" on this page when she probably should be saying it two pages ago? But looking at the backgrounds, I was able to use their 'walk' through the bunker to confirm the pages were indeed in the correct order. However, on pages 10 and 11, when Doktor goes from saying "I always knew I was coming back" to saying "But, yes... more complex" just made me feel like I missed something.

    And of course yes the mega "what happened in between???" moment "The fake blood swap worked perfectly."

    Overall, the issue was weird but satisfying... I think? Hm.

    Yes. Cogent. In that I understand character motivations more clearly. I'm always an issue or two behind everyone else. Now I know specifically what Sleepless wants (or says he wants). When he was in the jungle or ranting about authenticity, I wasn't so sure I got it. This is the issue where it clicked.

    I felt the same way about #4 of Transmet, or the Until The End of the World story in Preacher. Or the last fucking issue of Invisibles (3rd go around).

    I'm dense.

    Just returned from comic shop:
    Gravel, Anna Mercury, The Boys and Punisher.. Obviously DS is first read.

    I am scared. The abundance of references and concept ideas is genuinely scaring me and making me think Ellis really is from the future. WTF are the cyber angels about?!?!
    Do H plates really exist? I am sure I've seen them around the streets but when I searched on the web nothng came up...I've definatley seem them around...I'm gonna go find one and see if a hidden bunker is nearby.

    The Doktor is officially in the house..

    Neither can Costner, he's in a mental asylum now.

    Doc was superb, as ever, but this is probably the best since the big ranty Godspee/Richy Manic issue. I can't wait for the whole murder confusion thing to shake down too.

    @m1k3y - me either, especially as I finally caught JFK a month or two back.

    I really love this book. The good doktor's monologue on the destructive opportunities opened up by love and that great reaction shot when he sees the "angel" were fantastic. I'm pretty sure that this is my favorite Ellis work since the first six issues of Desolation Jones.

    This book made it all pay off.

    This series is going to rock hard, especially when its a couple dozen issues in and people can go back and look at the whole story.

    Getting it one issue at a time teaches you patience and how much you don't know about Warren's writing style. (i was ready after issue 4 to blow this book off, but i'm glad i stayed)

    Amazingly few comments here! DS continues to be my absolute favourite Ellis book post-Transmet - and I suspect once it's reached the conclusion, may even beat it.

    Warren - It's driving me mad that i can't find a damn thing online about the real H-Plates...

    @Cat
    You could ask that Flabyo guy who just posted five of them in the Outside imagethread. Or... I dunno. What do you *do* when the internet doesn't have the answers? Ask a librarian. Librarians know everything you could ever need to know, they just keep a lot of it outside their heads.
