I love Evan Dorkin, great pick.

Beasts of Burden #1
as selected by Kerny[/center]
Writer: Evan Dorkin
Artist: Jill Thompson

When supernatural occurrences sweep the community of Burden Hill, it's up to a heroic gang of cats and dogs to keep residents safe from harm.

A bizarre disturbance leads these four-legged neighbors on a wild-goose chase into the depths of the nearby forest, where loyalties are tested and lives come to an abrupt end.

Award-winning comics creators Evan Dorkin (Milk & Cheese) and Jill Thompson (Scary Godmother) first introduced these heroic characters in the anthologies The Dark Horse Book of Hauntings, Witchcraft, the Dead, and Monsters, for which they won coveted Eisner Awards for Best Short Story and Best Painter.

Adventure, mystery, horror and humor thrive on every page of Beasts of Burden -- a comic-book series that will capture readers' hearts and haunt their dreams.

I've only ever read Evan Dorkin's Bill and Ted comics (that was him right?) so this will be interesting.

You'd like Milk and Cheese, see them here beating up furries which is pretty much exactly the same as cosplayers...

Dark Reign: The List: Avengers

I've been enjoying Dark Reign, a lot actually. I'm also a fan of Bendis. New Avengers however, have been off and on, and I jump on and off with certain arcs

This honestly felt like it should have been a NA issue. Clint is pissed and takes matters into his own hands. What follows is Clint taking down the whole Dark Avengers. (Really?) I did like the nod towards Clint and Karla's past. Clint goes and greets Osborn and delivers the final blow.......only for Osborn to have shields and Ares popping out to bitch slap Clint. I could see hardcore old school Hawkeye fans taking issue with Clint's actions here, but I don't really mind

All the Bendis-isms, good and bad, are present here, but overall I'd say I like those more than I hate them. Still the story never does anything impressive.

The art is great Some of the faces are weird, but eh, much better than whats been on the regular book (with the exception of Immonnen). Plus I heard he drew it in 9 days, which is impressive

Story 5
Art 8

Overall 6.5

Cartoon Network really sucks for not producing shows like that, Korgoth of Barbaria, or Amazing Screw-On Head. They are all top-notch:

Can someone tell me why Bullseye will heal after getting shot? I thought all he had was a strong skeleton? Nothing to do with healing.
