i recently read a bunch of the early stories of deadman
great stuff, i think the character probably has more potential than it has shown
the first issue by arnold drake and drawn by carmine infantino is outstanding!!

keeping the gotham theme here with commissioner gordon!
great supporting character about whom i wouldn't mind reading more
gotham central was grreeat but, he wasnt one it!
i guess that was one of the points (new department/new begining)
that was a good book, if your looking for some noir crime stories.

*recently read "batman and the monster men" by matt wagner
left me pretty indifferent to tell you the truth
the story was particularly pointless and not adventurous enough to even justify the sheer popcorn joy that some comics have
i do like wagner for the most part but this i just didnt get to care
i dont know ... guess ... i bought the HC cause i had some strong references and felt it too flimsy for an HC type story
keep working on this "straight forward" coloring method
it's kind of a tech-cheat; using the p-shop to separate as different color inks.
the original inks
*i've been catching up with the flash in last couple of months reading the infamous "1 year later" arc by wilson & demeo.
then the short guggenheim run, with the "irrelevantly relevant" issue 13 (all very forgettable to me, with almost a "filler" status)
and at last! the "all-flash" issue with those final pages by acuna ... OMG!!!
talk about rebirth! flash hasn't shown that kind of energy in a long time (even before the fastest man alive)
now we already have flash #231, and its even better!
i just wish the team held together longer... acuna is leaving soon
that's too bad! (the character deserves the blockbuster felling that he provided)
it'll still be worth reading.

just read "batman:jekyll and hyde" tpb, by paul jenkins, and jae lee/sean phillips 50/50 on the art.
the story was nothing to phone home about.
bit of retcon there, that wasn't bad.
for me, phillips's artistry knocked everyone else off the book.
what a guy!

i just love to draw this guy!
how could you go wrong with that forehead?
great character design
*that's the martian manhunter by the way aka j'onn j'onzz.
this stranded martian detective from the 50s appears emotionally unable but is actually a lovable character mostly seen as part of the JLA.
has a mortal allergy to fire and an inhuman affinity for oreo cookies
just in case someone is not into the DCU at all (dont mean to be "educational" or anything)
