Really. How the fuck am I supposed to know you work at a comic shop, Herald?

We've both been on the Outhouse for a while. I'm sure you've mentioned it plenty of times. Yet, to my knowledge, this is the first extended conversation we've ever had together.

And the first time I've seen you mention you worked in a comic shop. Sorry my psychic powers were on the fritz. Enjoy your phantom burn, as it were. No skin off my ego.

:P

Yeah, like you shouldn't assume that I'm stealing comics.
Don't try to dance out of YOUR ignorance and idiocy.

I guess SOME people never think.


Glad you realize that about yourself. :D

Yup.

Probably.

Don't forget about your ignorance in ASSuming that I automatically knew you work in a comic shop. If I'm an idiot, you are too. Because then we'll both have made some stupid facepalm worth assumptions.

I guess SOME people never think.

I've known that about myself for quite some time. Imagine my delight to find out how much we have in common! :D

Darwyn Cooke! Any Cooke artwork is welcome at any time, especially when teamed with a series as good as The Shade is. He and J. Bone drew the hell out of this issue and just made me wish we got a Cooke-drawn Vigilante series, that would amazing. The story was good too of course, we flashback to 1944 as Shade fights to protect one of his descendants from Nazi Fifth Columnists, and it had plenty of decent twists, especially the involvement of Caldecott’s wife in the plot. I had thought Ms Sharp was involved, but then it turned out she was a man who dresses as a woman to fight crime. Did James Robinson invent Madam Fatal? Or is she an actual Golden Age character? If she is that blows my mind. How did they get away with a transvestite superhero? No wonder Wertham thought comics were fucked up! It’s gloriously messed-up, and the sort of thing Robinson is best at. This was a great issue, which shed some light on the events in the present, the Times Past issues were always some of my favourites in Starman, and Robinson hasn’t lost it. Now where’s my next Cooke fix coming from? Hopefully not Watchmen 2!

Three issues each from each artist, right?

I did not like that run at all, the only thing by Cooke I ever hated.

Let's not get back into that stupidity so no one ask Punchy why he didn't like the spirit.

Anyways, there will be one of these flashbacks issues inbetween each 3 issue arc so 6 artists in total?
