Quote from: Ron Maels Moustache on October 03, 2021, 12:10:17 PMI am, yes. The inflated prices for it online are utterly preposterous.
Quote from: 13 schoolyards on October 03, 2021, 03:04:08 PMEvery single time it's mentioned in one of the FB groups on 70s UK comics there's at least one bastard who chimes in with "I found a copy for a fiver in my local op shop!" Yeah, thanks for that

Quote from: Mister Six on October 07, 2021, 04:02:04 AMYeah, in All-Star Section 8 (IIRC) he didn't have proper dialogue, just gibberish Cockneyisms. When he was brought back to be a supporting character in the sequel, Six-Pack and Dogwelder: Hard-Travellin' Heroez, he spoke "normally", with a strong Cockney accent.Oh, and he was upset about how his character was being treated now he was no longer part of the Vertigo comics imprint and was back in the DC universe proper...

Quote from: Small Man Big Horse on October 09, 2021, 10:45:30 PMReally pleased by that news, I was lucky enough to pick up the first nine volumes in a charity shop for £1.50 each recently, and knowing it'll be back soon makes it the perfect time for a reread.
Quote from: Shameless Custard on October 10, 2021, 11:20:31 AMBlimey, what a bargain!13 schoolyards, yep apparently Brian K Vaughan has an ending planned, so it's definitely heading there. Though he's now saying the story is only halfway through, so I'd imagine it has a few years to go yetHis endings for Y The Last Man and Paper Girls were excellent and satisfying, so I have faith
Quote from: bgmnts on October 11, 2021, 01:48:53 AMJust smashed Sweet Tooth front to back in around three hours and work is going to be tough tomorrow but I enjoyed it well enough. The pacing was a little weird though. Always a bit tricky when reading entire compendiums in one go.
Quote from: Magnum Valentino on October 11, 2021, 02:08:56 PMIt's probably because Lemire added one or two stories into it given the go-ahead from DC as it was selling well enough. He had the ending mapped out from early enough on, and also wrote the first arc or two as if that's all he would get to write in case it got cancelled. So in that regard, it has three points in it that he designed as its ending, of sorts.Ace though innit? Treated myself to the hardcovers JUST before they started to go for absolutely silly money.
