Review Group Poll for May 9th

The Review Group needs a comic to review (and people to review it!) next week. Vote for one of the selections provided or write in a vote of a single issue comic you believe would be more suitable.

DAN THE UNHARMABLE #1
Writer: David Lapham
Art: Rafael Ortiz
Eisner Award winning writer David Lapham delivers a fresh punch to the face with his new ongoing series about crime, family, and being a lazy, yet invulnerable, private detective. Dan is something of a hired man. Whatever one needs doing, be it detective work, muscle work, blackmail work, or bedroom work - Dan's your man. Dan’s not afraid of anything because Dan’s totally unharmable. You can beat him with sticks, stick him in the oven, throw him off a bridge, or shoot him in his noggin its all the same to Dan. He's never met an insult that bothered him or a person he cared about—at least for more than a night. Dan prefers not to be shackled down by worldly goods. He works for just enough dough to keep him in cigs and beer for a night or two, maybe a room, and he’s content. Dan's bohemian paradise is all about to change, however. You see, back before Dan was so unharmable he left a few loose ends. Now those loose ends are growing up and their mother's been murdered, which not only means that Dan has to solve his most personal case yet, he's now legally responsible for four human beings who are anything but unharmable.... Dan the Unharmable is a new ongoing series by noir legend, David Lapham featuring art by Rafael Ortiz.

FRANKENSTEIN ALIVE, ALIVE! #1
Steve Niles (w) • Bernie Wrightson (a & c)
Few works by comic-book artists have earned the universal acclaim and reverence that Bernie Wrightson's illustrated version of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's Frankenstein was met with upon its original release in 1983.
Nearly 30 years later, Wrightson returns to his passion project with a comic series that picks up at the end of the classic novel, hailed as one of the greatest horror stories of all time. Frequent Wrightson collaborator Steve Niles provides the script for this epic, decades in the making.
While appearing to be in black and white, each page was scanned in color to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art, showing off the exquisitely detailed brush work of one of the greatest living artists in comics today.
Each issue will also include supplemental materials, including interviews, essays and a serialization of the original prose story by Shelley.
B&W • 32 pages • $3.99

You say shit, I say potential. Outhousers love to talk about Liefeld and Byrne, I thought they'd be a big draw. :wink:

I voted for Dan too.

Which of course I knew you would, compounding my vote against having to read next week's book in the shop because I refuse to spend money on that shit.

Yeah, pretty much anyone who'd pay money for that is going to end up feeling angry, I think.

Since all Marvel Zombies books are about the same, I wouldn't even have to read it.
