    Well, yesterday was Disembowelment and Put a Knife Through the Mouth Saturday, what with this, a copy of Ennis's The Boys a colleagues lent me and Morgan's Black Man, which I'm currently 2/3 of the way through. Had to look at pictures of pretty flowers and fluffy bunnies just to restore some form of equilibrium!

    Have to admit - Gravel has me hooked, so that's another for my standing order at TM. I thought the art was great, the story compelling and the beginning panels attention grabbing to say the least (of the 'did he really write that?' kind). Nice one.

    Got it! I think I need to buy a few more issues to determine if it gets added to the standing order. (leaning toward yes)

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Cool link Oddcult. I can just picture that budget meeting. "Well it sounds iffy but lets throw a couple billion at it and if it works we can start that super soldiers
    program I just finished reading a proposal for". "Excuse me sir that was my sons Captain America comic you read in the limo over here".

    @hank;

    Why not just add it and if you change your mind take it off your list? That's what I do...

    @Macgyver My list is pretty much the standing order that my budget can handle, there are a few books i pick up manually on occasion and Geavel 0 was one of them. Im still pondering it.

    @hank My list SHOULD be that, but if the time between visits gets a bit long I end up hurting a bit :S

    Macgyver 2- 3 months generally comes out to about 200 dollars (US). We try not to do that too often.

    Yikes, I'm only about half that. Maybe £30 on an average month, plus whatever I pull of the shelves....

    I liked it, particularly the Hodgson references which includes the Sigsand, I think.

    It had a fair amount of story for being only 12 pages.

    Posted to an old thread, it seems. Reposting here:

    Hello, all. I am getting the hang of this forum. So different than the Delphi style but I am getting used to it.

    I picked up GRAVEL a couple weeks ago. I was pleasantly surprised with the art. That guy has a great EC Comics feel to his stuff. The bookshelf and desk on preview pages for issue 1 just looked dark and dusky and creepy. I would love to see this guy and Fabio Moon do horror comics in the old tradition. I am also happy to see that Gravel still has the look that Wolfer defined for him. The six panel grid has been a hallmark of this series and it is still in effect here. It keeps the pace up, IMO. These were some of my favorite action comics of the past decade.

    Anyway, I am in. It was more brutal than I expected. I hope the magic stays cranked up like it has in the last few minis.
