I think I gave my Black Orchid books to Greg. Its a good series though.

I liked Sebastian O a lot. It just seemed to go by very quickly. I like Steve Yeowell and Grant Morrison together. Except for Skrull Kill Krew, that shit was dumb.

When was Sebastian O collected into paperback?

Sebastian O was great. I would have loved to see Morrison doing more stories in that world. Hey, did you get to read my review on Sebastian O?

I bought a set of the single issues for $5. Long ago we hashed this out in the GN thread, that a set or run of issues of a story arc was the same thing basically. The only holdout? Probably Punchy, but in my imaginary recollection, the rest of us agreed he was just being autistic about it.

Marvel Boy was awful. You will need to read that 100 bullets book to balance it out.

I read some small press comics that came in the mail by Paul Hornschemeier, Sequential #6, Return Of The Elephant, and City In The Snow-Globe.

These were from 2003-4ish at the earlier end of his career as a writer/illustrator.

Finally read something by him I didn't really like, Return Of The Elephant. Oh wells, I like everything else he's done.

I don't know whether to keep the one thing by him I don't like or not, though.

I kept One Page Filler Man by Mahfood even though I hated it. I didn't keep Marijuanaman though.

I just read "BUNN HURTT" at "BUTT HURT". Spending too much time here... :?

I finished off the Eternals by Jack Kirby last night. I kind of plowed through the last few issues of vol. 2 because the series really starts to get uninteresting. As much as I could wish we had more Kirby Eternals, I really didn't see the point of it. I am curious to read how they were integrated into the Marvel Universe since they were originally (and rightfully) meant to have their own universe, but otherwise I'm not super-interested in anyone else taking on this concept. I know a few of them popped up here and there in Marvel U continuity as well. The one thing I found very brutal in a way was how stories would lead into each other. Usually with Kirby work, I can read one or two issues and I'm tired because they're so packed. In the case of the Eternals, sometimes three to five issues would lead into each other (similar to Kirby's Cap stuff) and it would get exhausting at times. I did greatly appreciate that the Eternals weren't Marvel's New Gods though. I enjoyed his little essay messages about his work in the book as well.
