I'm not the least bit interested in this. I thought Cho's art was pretty awesome when I saw Liberty Meadows, I liked the mixture of styles he used, but I don't like him doing super heroes. *shrugs*

Don't look for the bad stuff? But what about the BEST bad stuff?

I've been wanting a good way to keep track of my 16 long boxes + 20 (or so) short boxes. Until I find something that really works for me, I've been using Comic Vine lists (See my mini bio.) [Scratch that. It doesn't show in the comments, just in the forum thread. I'll just make a link.]

I'll definitely check this out if it doesn't have too much Samuel L. in it.

Awesome! Love the imprint name. Digital-only though? Guess I'll have to give that a try, even though I don't have an optimal device to view them on... but at the very least I MUST read Bandette! I dig Colleen Coover's illustrations; I use to buy comics from her and Paul Tobin when they worked at Daydreams =D

I've been unable to keep up on current books, as I've been out of work for longer than I'd like, but I'd have to say the series I miss reading the most is B.P.R.D. For me, it's just got that perfect fusion of writing and art. The storytelling benefits from consistent characterization and an overall atmosphere of tension. It's got myth, and horror, and weird science. It keeps surprising me. There's a good smattering of Lovecraftian influence, where dealing with the unknown gives you that uneasy feeling. Our world in the B.P.R.D. universe has bad, bad things happening to it. And it just keeps escalating.

When the DC logo is thrown up prior to mentioning Before Watchmen in the video, my immediate thought was, "that's not their logo anymore," despite my not owning any issues with the new logo on them.

I never really liked Bob Harras anyway.

And still no real talk about how they plan to pick up all these new readers. The most I can glean from this interview, is that they're really just hoping that by making them available digitally, those readers will magically appear. Are they going to do a big mainstream advertising push or anything?
