    I'm told that it's out today? Anyone seen it? Thoughts, comments, etc?

    You should consider there to be HUGE HOOOJ MAHOOSIVE SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT.

    (MAHOOSIVE is what my daughter now says instead of "massive," MAHOOSIVE being several orders more humungous than "massive.)

    Picked it up at my local shop (in L.A.) and read it yesterday. Continuing to enjoy the story very much-- and really liking the artwork as well. The full- and double-page spreads have some fantastic detail.

    Yeah, I wanted to give Ryp some space for some big guitar solos this time...

    Consider it a success-- he really ran with it and hit a homerun.

    Picked it up yesterday (in the US) one of my fav books this week, for shure. I'm ready to see John Horus kick some ass (not that he hasen't already). your portrayal of the media is a one of my favorite parts of this mini. The American television journalism characterization is spot-on. Keep the work coming with Juan Jose Ryp, I loved Wolfskin as well.

    Juan really captures the entrails well in this and the previous issues. There's no way Tom Nior is dead, right Warren? Not that you are going to answer that one. I'm sitting tight for the next one.

    Yesterday? GODDAMMIT! What do I need to do to get it pulled at my local store? Write my request on the display case with blood and feces?

    I shall now spend a couple of days tracking down a copy.

    Depending on my Wednesday week to week schedule, I hit either Meltdown Comics on Sunset in Hollywood or HiDeHo in Santa Monica. Each seem to do an excellent job of having a large stock of Ellis (and/or Avatar) releases. I eschew pull lists (simply because the act of going to the store and hitting the shelves is part of the fun for me), but I've yet to have a problem with missing a title at either of these places.

    It's such a superhero/videogame place that things from companies like Avatar never even get ordered. The people that work their are great which is the only thing that keeps me from taking my business elsewhere. Despite having a pull list, I always end up hunting down anything that's not from DC, Marvel or Image.

    Nice. As it's already been said, the big splashy pages are great!

    Sorry, but the husband and I don't think Tom's dead. (He's in or is the network.)

    It will be really interesting to see how the "new" team fights with the old team. My money's on the original guns in the end (casualities probably) because they have the real world experience. And more anger.

    They are going to clean up thier city, again. They have recently lost a team mate, and are royally pissed. Wonderful combination for beautiful violence.

    And I don't think they have a chance in hell of actually taking Horus out. Tom will do that.

    black summer continues to roll on in a punch-you-in-the-fucking-face manner. good stuff, and one of the few books where the premise seems to interest non-comic readers i tell about it. hells yes, this new team better get wrecked.

    Clearly been mentioned but the splash pages kick so much ass it hurts my eyes. But I couldn't stop staring, and now I can't read the rest of my pile. Oh well, it's prolly all shit anyways.
