    In which, as ever, I have a couple of ideas and then make Mike Wolfer write them for me.

    Thoughts on this issue? Getting close to the end of the arc, now.

    Much as I enjoyed this issue, I just can't think of anything to say that I haven't said already. Gravel is just a great read every issue. I did like the way Bible Jack thought he was such hot shit and Gravel honestly had no idea what he was going on about, though. Watching Gravel's patience get tried for the billionth time in a row is always fun.

    Loved the cover. Bill Gravel channels his inner Eddie a la Iron Maiden. Nice play on the Killers cover. By the way Warren, are you or Mike fans of Iron Maiden? Just wondering what the inspiration was behind the cover.

    I know it's late, but I only just got this as I have to order my stuff online due to my town and surrounding area being a cultural blackhole; seriously, there isn't a bookshop for miles(!)

    Anyway, it was excellent to find out the history of this demented psychopath and also slightly disturbing to see how powerful he is considering his severe mental issues. Favourite moment though has to be, "Show me who did Brixton." the inventiveness of the paraphernalia Gravel uses never fails to impress me. I'll have to go back and read through previous issues to check out the last names of the new minor seven now because I'm sure Layla should of been further up the list by Mr William's reasoning. Does he not want to use her as much due to the severity of her particular type of magic? Probably not, but it would be interesting to see Gravel actually get attached to his new wards.

    Mike's work, as always, was also excellent in the extreme. This series is always a treat and I'm off to pre-order issue 20 right now! Thanks.
