Cannon is an HC and it is really beautiful. Wood's art is incredible, and he obviously draws really attractive nekkid women. The story is so corny and ridiculous that it's fun. I really like this book.
The Epic collections have been really nice. The paper quality and reproduction is really good and they pack a lot of comics into a very readable and somewhat reasonably priced package. I love that the idea is ultimateyl to collect full runs of the comics in this fashion and I'm all in for that. But not all volumes are going to be the best comics out there. And most of the early Epics are not collecting the best of the best, since I think the plan with the Epic line is to start by filling in the "holes" in what has already been collected elsewhere.
This new Iron Man book apparently collects John Byrne's full run on the character as a writer, with a number of artists including JRJR. I didn't even know this run, which I think spanned some portion of the early 90s, even existed. And 90s comics, including the artistic "style" of the period, are not my favorites. But I haven't read it yet so I don't know if this is any good or not. I'm still reading the first Iron Man Epic Collection, which collects the comics around '82-'83. Again, maybe not the greatest comics but the 80s was the decade I grew up in and began reading comics so I've been really enjoying these stories.

Wally Wood was such a great artist.
Those Epic books sure sound nice! I'm interested in the Iron Man book, especially because of John Byrne. I think I should get it.

I'll be getting Silver Surfer by the end of the month.

I enjoyed it. It was a great set-up for the series with, of course, wonderful art. It's also pretty obviously Dan Slott's Doctor Who pitch, but then that's my favourite show, so I don't mind.
by Arion » Sun Apr 06, 2014 6:44 pm
Well, I'm buying it mainly because of Allred's art, but I'm a huge Doctor Who fan so that's a nice surprise.

by Midas » Mon Apr 07, 2014 10:49 pmI'm really digging the Gold Key stuff from Dynamite. Maybe even more than the Valiant stuff, which I'm largely still enjoying (though the artwork on the latest Archer and Armstrong was nearly cringe-worthy). I'm really looking forward to Jeff Parker's Flash Gordon series and I'm a little bummed that I missed the Kings Watch miniseries that will lead into it. I'm going to have to pick that up in trade.

What's the Gold Key stuff ? I think I haven't heard about it.
by Evan Meadow » Tue Apr 08, 2014 5:18 am
He means the Turok, Magnus, Solar, and Doctor Spektor books. They all used to be part of Gold Key before they got popular via Valiant. But because Valiant has never owned them, they're always labeled as the Gold Key characters.
by Evan Meadow » Tue Apr 08, 2014 5:19 am
Well issue #5 of Kings Watch is out this week. You might be able to find all the issues at cover price still at a LCS.
by Arion » Wed Apr 09, 2014 10:26 pm
Ah, thank you for the explanation.
by Midas » Wed Apr 09, 2014 10:44 pmI might give that a shot... I've been coming around on "single issue" comics lately as a preferred reading format.
by Arion » Thu Apr 10, 2014 8:08 pm
We have Miracleman and Jupiter's Legacy in common.
by Midas » Fri Apr 11, 2014 12:19 pmIt is nearly impossible not to have at least *something* in common with Evan!
