Finally found a copy of Paul Hornschemeier's Mother Come Home to complete my collection of his hardcover graphic novels (except all the rest of them are signed).

There are only a handful of people writing and drawing OGNs on the same level as he is, it's sure to be brilliant stuff.

This was excellent, as expected.

This was pretty sad, I really didn't want it to end like that!


Gene Ha is one of the artists in that arc? I always love Ha's pages.

I read that years ago. It's about the kid who wears an animal mask and his dad right? The mother dies or something? It's extremely sad.

Yeah, he draws a Big Bad Wolf flashback story. Nice little fairy tale, really pretty art.

The Sword vol 3 - Earth: Pretty mediocre. There were some cool things like the dude making himself into a giant mountain man and the girl getting her mouth punched off then putting it back on. It was pretty boring though. This kind of reminds me of LOST without the edginess. Not even sure I want to finish this series.

The Eternals by Jack Kirby vol 1: I was expecting more along the lines of Fourth World but was surprised to see something else. The stories are more reality-based and its fun to try and draw out where he's getting his characters from. I must say that the one thing I'm not too fond of is the lack of character development because I want to learn more about each character but I also findthat there are probably more characters than issues in this series. It makes me sad. I love how packed each issue is though.

It's excellent, the artwork is some of the most intricate amazing stuff I've ever seen, like JH Williams Promethea level stuff.

The story is compelling too, I liked Blankets, but this is a whole other level.

Sounds really amazing then. It is in black and white or in color?
