One of my all time favorites. Loved Grell's Green Arrow work.

Yeah, Brief Lives has been my favorite bit so far. Ramadan was absolutely gorgeous though, Russell and four color perfection? World's End closes out this beast.

I enjoyed it. It was beautiful, not sure the contra stuff was as fleshed out as well as they thought. The relevatism of the story is weird given that it was supposed to be a retired Green Arrow type deal, love that it kept from being as bleak as Dark Knight Returns while working with some of the same motifs.

Started on this last night. Between this, Prophet, and Stokoe's Wonton Soup, I've found myself on a pretty steady diet of weird ass sci-fi. Seems like a fun book though.

All in all, it was a fine book. The next volume has already been solicited. Hopefully we'll get many more.

Next up, the only part of the DnA Marvel Cosmic run I haven't read:

Huat art...my eyes...it burns my eyes. Seriously, though he isn't awful when drawing monsters or aliens, but man he can't draw people at all. The main Annihilators story felt the weakest part of DnA's cosmic epic, almost entirely due to the art. The Timothy Green drawn Rocket Raccoon and Groot backups, on the other hand, were spectacular. They captured the fun, exciting vibe of the earlier stories and made for the perfect appetizer for the movie. I especially enjoyed the Mojo story in light of the marketing bonanza the characters have seen in the last few months.

Let us know how that is, I've heard a couple of people say they liked it.

It has some great art and the tales are good. The thing that does it for me is the funeral procession foreshadow at the end. It's so fucking blatantly obvious and sentimental and annoying.

I'm just about to finish up the Annihilation Omnibus and then because of how much I enjoyed the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, I am tempted to reread the first volume of Bendis' GotG run. At least, I might if I don't get my hands on a copy the first volume of Abnett & Lanning's run first.
