"Plastic Man: On the Lam" by Kyle Baker. A very cartoonish style of art is employed
here, which probably wouldn't work for most other characters, but it fits Plastic Man
fine. There are a lot of clever gags as well.

No worries. Hey, maybe if Philippa Gregory lets people do graphic-novel
adaptation of her books, you can visit here again!

"Lucky Luke-Dalton City" by "Morris" and Rene Goscinny.

I love this-it's a hilarious spin on every Western cliche you can think off, as our hero sets out to clean up the titular town. My favourite gag is set in a sleazy bar* -

Customer:"37? There ain't 37 numbers on a roulette wheel!"

Croupier: "There are on this one, an' I got a seven-shooter that says so!"



*Well, as sleazy as a kid's comic would allow.

The Sculptor by Scott McCloud and The Fade Out by Brubaker and Phillips both excellent reads.

I've been re-reading the Titan Books title "'Flash Gordon: On the Planet Mongo'' by Alex Raymond and Don Moore.

This is a very nice edition of the first Alex Raymond stories. The story opens with the famous scene of Flash and Dale's aircraft having its fateful encounter with a meteor and then keeps on going at the proverbial breakneck pace. Imagine the impact these stories must have made on Depression-era readers, especially ones who had never seen a science fiction story before. In this volume Raymond is developing as a artist, slowly developing new techniques like expanding the picture boxes to show off his illustrations. And what illustrations!

As Raymond depicts it, planet Mongo is an imaginary world every bit as engaging as Arrakis or Middle-Earth. It's full of interesting alien races, beautiful scenery, fascinating machines and scary monsters.

I'm following the Doctor Who Comic series featuring the 10th, 11th and 12th Doctors at the moment. Nicely captures each Doctor's unique personality so far.

I just ordered myself the latest 2000 AD prog. I haven't read one since the 1980s, so I've got a bit of catching up to do.

Catching up on some unreads and started the Bagirl Burnside run. First impression is a strong WTF is this ?! Feels like the comic's been written for 6yo girls. Not a happy bunny.

"The Essential Calvin and Hobbes" by Bill Watterson.

Has it really been almost two decades since this wonderful strip vanished from our
newspapers? Reading this book, I remembered how sparky and charming Watterson's
illustrations were. As a child, I identified with Calvin and his big Tiger buddy; now
I'm a little older, though, I can also understand how annoying Calvin's parents
could occasionally find him.

Also, for years I misread Calvin's spaceman alter ego as "Spaceman Spliff" instead of "Spiff", and I thought Watterson had cleverly smuggled a cannabis reference into a kid's cartoon strip (in reality, Watterson seems to be fairly anti-drugs).
