Sparta was not good, no. :smt011

There's a huge gap between the stuff when he's the writer/artist and when he's just the writer.

Murder Me Dead should have been included in the stuff DtU isn't better than.

There is a difference between some of the small press books we've done in the past and say this and reset...which are not found on the internet that I know of...

Outside of Marvel/DC/Image it does seem to get a bit sketchy in that regard, yes.

Good.

I just put last week's book through a paper shredder, damn these new 20 pg DC books shred much easier than older books!

Dark horse is usually pretty good too. We rarely delve into the other publishers but Lapham isn't exactly Ennis or Ellis avatar.

So, I should review this book before I fold it up to fit into a letter-sized envelope (kidding).

Dan The Unharmable #1

Points for the cover magazine, which says "Outhouse", and for the Melvins. The gruesome opening gag with the detectives is hilariously atypical of the usual crime scene scenarios, everything about this book would make for great television if the right "Dan" was cast, maybe a sort of cross between The Dude and Rockford. The bit about the coed's sex tapes serves as a great introduction to the character and the obvious reasons for the title of the book without any boring exposition, which I thought Lapham handled deftly, and the gory scenes end-capping the issue hint at much darker days ahead for Dan The Unharmable that may test more than just his physical resilience.

No complaints about the artwork, I thought this was a great first issue.
