While on Vacation, I read:

It was a little of a rough start, but the art was awesome. Funny, the second bit with the not Chang art was easier to follow and more awesome as a whole, even if it didn't look as good.

Also started:

Almost done. Awesome Dan Dare story by Morrison and a great adaptation of Chandler's Goldfish. Love Hughes's art.

The Dan Dare story is great. I wrote a review about it. It's funny but I've always been a Dan Dare fan, I guess that's what happens when you grow up reading British comics.

I've read mostly the Gerry Finlay-Day / Dave Gibbons era that appeared on 2000AD decades ago.

It's not a graphic novel but I'll be starting Marvel Comics: the Untold Story when I hit the road tomorrow.

Secret Service had some good (and funny) moments. I wrote a review about it in case you're interested.

Atomic Robo Volume 4: Atomic Robo and Other Strangeness - Unfortunately the fourth volume of Atomic Robo is the shortest collection of the series so far. However, Other Strangeness makes excellent use of the space that it does have by telling 4 seemingly unconnected stories occurring over the course of a new Tesladyne employees first week on the job. I have a feeling that these stories were being used as a way to introduce characters and concepts for use later in the series but that doesn't prevent Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener from giving us another really fun trip into the world of Atomic Robo. Oh and yeah, I'll say it; Dr. Dinosaur is one of the greatest comic creations of this century. Period.

Stormwatch v.1 – Written by Warren Ellis, otherwise there’s no way I’d have bought this. :P

It was pretty good, I know very little about the Wildstorm universe, just bits and pieces and a guy like Ellis can make it very interesting/compelling. I could get behind Wildstorm U comic with someone like him writing. I hope they do collections that follow this and then the Authority.

Art was so-so, Tom Raney has distinct style but like always it’s ok to good. I imagine the better bits were Pete Wood. Jim Lee also does an issue and I can see why Jude calls him lazy in his articles, it was an all splash page issue.

My LCS has a small bookcase filled hardcovers and trades for half price. They are constantly adding new stuff so I try to check it out every time I go in. Today I got lucky, since I had to go back and pick up the comics that I missed earlier in the week I found a like new hardcover copy of the first volume of Remender's Uncanny X-Force. 8)
