    Thanks,

    I would have tossed a similar link in, but was exploring on my phone and didn't think of using"-comics" as a part of the url.

    I was surprised to see Rick Veitch's The One coming out from IDW completely remastered with new scans and updated color, all overseen by Veitch himself. Slipped under my radar.

    I remember us talking about it back in May on the “Comic Cover a Day...” thread when you linked to the announcement. And I'm still not interested. My cheap back issues will do just fine for that particular series.

    As will my weathered TPB, just hadn't heard much about it since May.

    The Tide cover is still one of my favorites.

    Rick Veitch had some great covers. Even his trades were great. I love the cowboy boot cover to Brat Pack.

    The Black Panther annual #1 looks good. Three great creators on that.
  • My love for Paper Girls is over. I quit.

    It has nothing to do with Chiang's still terrific art. It's the writing. The usually brilliant Vaughan has fallen into the "Lost" trap (a show for which he wrote, so he should know better) of rapidly setting up more and more mysteries while offering few-to-no answers along his long, long road. It's been 18 issues now and I haven't a clue what's going on. I often doubt Vaughan has a clue. I wish this title had been a 6-issue mini, I wish something like an announced finale would force him to show his hand already, even partially so. (Additionally, I have no clue what kind of play-act game Vaughan's letter column is; I gave up trying to guess that ten or eleven issues ago.)

    I'm now simply going to wait until I hear the title's ended, then I'll read Wikipedia's Paper Girls summary to see if Vaughan ever gave any answers as to what the hell was going on in this book.

    In the meantime, I am still loving Saga, and still pushing Vaughan's fantastic Y: The Last Man and The Private Eye on anyone I know who hasn't read them yet.

    Yup, ditto that. Dropped off at #16.

    Thankfully Jim Starlin had turned in all of his scripts before his fallout with Tom Brevoort happened, leading to Starlin's departure from Marvel.
