and Dark Wolverine sells more than Weapon X. Image United sold gangbusters. Jeph Loeb still gets work.

Sales are not indicative of quality. The Eisner means shit to me as well, before anyone mentions it.

The Eisner was bullshit. High-goddamn-way robbery that Echo or Madame Xanadu didn't win that category.

Echo's pretty good, I enjoyed the first trade, but I don't think it deserves the 'OHMIGOD IT'S SO FREAKING AWESOME' praise it gets from most places.

I liked it a lot, and it probably becomes more apparent as it goes on, but I just couldn't get what all the fapping was about.

I dropped Echo with #8, it was OK, but I wasn't gripped by it.

IIM is consistently good.

Echo was just to damn slow, I dropped it somewhere around 8 also.
IIM would be one of the best books on the shelf with a better artist.

I'd say it'd be readable with a better artist. David Aja is doing the Annual and I'm sure as shit going to buy that.

I like that he is never behind and I truly appreciate that but I personally just don't care for his style. The faces he draws always look wonky to me.

I like Larocca, but I would rather have more Newuniversal than this.

D'Armata can be hit or miss, but I like him on this. It makes for a nice continuation from Granov's digital painting on Extremis.

Which is nice because I prefer to ignore the fact that the Knaufs ever happened. :P
