    Nothing in GOSH! (London) They say they are expecting it next week.

    I'm worse than gutted. My LCS seems to have been taken totally unaware by Ignition City #2 and don't have any idea of when they expect it. I'm having to read this thread squinting so I don't see any juicy stuff, and just hope that it turns up faster than Gravel #11 and Doctor Sleepless #12, which they STILL haven't got in. I'm beginning to think that worrying about their trade is less important than my fucking reading pleasure.

    You need a new comics shop.

    FLCS had one copy left. I called just in time.

    Midway through, reading a few pages a night. A nice dicey situation Mr. Rabbit Poop is in.

    My FLCS is a couple of miles from work. Driving there for one comic is getting wearying . . . I may Wait for the Trade and use the first two issues to lure in friends and cow orkers.

    That, or get into the habit, find a couple more books to follow, and reserve a box.

    Just to confirm a trend.

    No copies on planet Newcastle UK, either.

    I checked both shops and they weren't expecting it according to printed lists they both had.

    Adding this one to my regular pull list.

    Enjoying the way this story is unfolding with the gradual introduction of the characters, the city and the world within which they exist.

    I'm a Warren Ellis fan because he treats his audience like they're smart. This book is just another good example of that.

    Ellis you magnificent bastard

    excellent book, once again you write well thought out, ass kicking women and put them in a position to flex their ass kicking ability. I can't wait till the next issue to see if she gets to use that nice looking piece of futuristic death dealing hardware strapped to her hip.

    Ok, so it looks like I'm not alone in not finding this in my usually reliable LCS. I shall bide my time...

    Managed to snag a copy (in Wales no less!) and enjoyed it a lot, I thought the pacing was top notch and the seedy underbelly reality of a place that should be space shiny hits home. The bigger picture of space flight history seems a great backdrop for exploration and Mary Raven's past likewise. IC's gone straight to the top of the pile.

    I didn't get around to picking it up until Saturday and went to a different shop in town too. They had a big stack of them. It was on the recommended wall too, *I think*.

    I liked the story. The suitcase lock was really cool. With no lyrical talent that would be a impregnable case for me though.

    ...oh god. Seriously?

    Was I suppose to know this guy who went into space 18yrs before I was even born...I mean I caught the reference to F.Gorden/L.Bowmen and B.Rogers/Bronco...but now that I know who he was(wikipedia/thanks izenmania) I see why I didn't have a clue but anyway...

    It kinda sucks taking a jab from a writer who's book you just fell in love with,you would think warren would want to enlighten his fans instead of taking shots at them for not knowing something.It's all good I got tough skin so...time to go re-read IC #2 you know it gets better the second and third time around. Until IC #3 hits im out...

    @4MY5KIDZ - I don't think it was so much taking a shot at you as much as the horror one feels at clues that the upcoming generations are quite literally - not forgetting, so much as completely not learning some of the fundamentals of what should be baseline of shared modern culture.

    Yuri Gagarin isn't just this guy who went into space 18yrs before you were born - he was the first human being in space, ever. It's because he, a Soviet Cosmonaut, went to space first, that the US government even made the moon landing a priority.

    First man in space!

    Now you know, and can stop frightening us with visions of the callow, eloi-like, historyless world to come.

    (And don't worry, Our Esteemed Proprietor deploys a variety of physically and psychologically scarring rhetorical devices upon all of us at one time or another, sometimes for good reasons, sometimes to satisfy the malevolent whims of his eel-coiled spleen. Your pain is a badge of honor. Your tears would be delicious to him - I'm sure - if there were such a thing as crying on Whitechapel - but there are edicts you will learn of in time.

    Welcome to Whitechapel! Can be combative!)

    If Ellis insults/threatens/abuses you in anyway it's a good sign. If he starts being nice is when you need to worry about arse eels showing up at your door... your back door that is.
