I read Omega the Unknown (the original 70s series) by Gerber & Skrenes.

I loved the Lethem series and I've been meaning to get round to that, how was it?

I actually read the first 2 issues of the Lethem series and I loved them, that's why I bought the original series (and before the end of the year I should get the entire Lethem series).

Brilliant review. Sounds like a lot of the themes and ideas carry over to the new story, and I just added the Gerber book to my Amazon list.

You should leave me a comment on my blog (that always puts a smile on my face).
I only read the first issues of Lethem's series but yes, they do seem to have a lot of things in common.

I'm going to be reading through Ennis' Punisher output, is the limited series starring Barracuda essential? Is the Punisher in it?

Barracuda's mini is in no way needed. It's the story of Barracuda in a South American dictatorship trying to arrange a coup, it's very funny and feels way more like the Marvel Knights stories than the Max ones. I like it, but there's no sign of anyone bar the main character who appears again.

I might cop it before I go if I have some leftover cash.

If shipping from MCS wasn't so expensive I might go for that. I can get it cheaper at the used book store here and I know they have copies.

Thanks, I am getting what I can from the library to save dough so things are coming in out of order, is it necessary to read the third Ennis series (the MAX one) in order? Or does it just tell stories arc by arc?

It starts out fairly standaloney but eventually a lot of threads get woven together and every single arc introduces something that pays off in the last year or so.

Are you including the 'From First to Last' and 'Born' trades in your reading? They're both pretty awesome.

I have Born coming but From First to Last isn't in my library system and seems to be out of print so I might just put it on my to-read someday list and keep my eye out for a cheap copy.
