I've been hearing a lot of good things about this book, But I could never seem to find it. The closest thing I have to this book is the Action Figure. I don't know if you take requests or not, but if it's not too much trouble, I would love to see a review of "Red Son" on I-Mockery sometime.

You know, I haven't actually read "Red Son" yet. But it's on my list of things to get around to...

Wow, this sounds fantastic!

Next time I'm at the comic-book store, I'll definitely see if they have it.

Anyway, I'm kind of hoping to see a "Johnny The Homicidal Maniac" review on this site. It's a favourite of mine.

I was actually thinking of picking this up already as a friend had mentioned it to me a while ago. But since I found your recommendations "Preacher" and "Y-The Last Man" so interesting that your endorsement is enough to convince me.

I just read through the whole series recently and it instantly became one of my favorite books ever. The ending really put a smile on my face.

Definitely great. Sort of naive in a way with the whole "fight the power" message and whatnot, but all the jokes that pertain to futuristic situations and gadgets are awesome.

Not epic, but still great as hell.
Still, Preacher is the best thing ever.

You know, it's about time there was an article done for The Sandman. Preacher and Transmetropolitan have got their own articles, but Sandman has been left out.

Apart from this, other comics like Strangers in Paradise deserve a review.

However, a good balance of Marvel/DC/Indie comics reviews would, I feel, introduce I-Mockery visitors to more than their usual horizons of the medium.

It's a good series of articles, Protoclown. It really is.

Sandman is coming. We've got to mix it up a bit, and we don't want to blow through all the good stuff right off the bat.

It's funny you say that Jakeofalltrades, I am a "Huge" Hunter S, Thompson fan and could never really get past Spider Jerusalem's overly caricatured version of one of this nations most absurd, prolific and amazing journalists Hunter S. Thompson.

Interesting. Well, you can't keep them all happy. I guess it all depends on what viewpoint you have of Thompson.

Proto: I understand completely. There's been so many reviews of good stuff I can't remember the last time you reviewed something awful outside of a Tales From The Longbox article!

I love this comic so much it hurts.

And yeah, I wish that our media had someone as bull-headed about the truth.

Or that I had the balls to be one myself.

Why aren't people clamoring for an article on Marvel/MiracleMan? It's a near-perfect piece of art. I'm not clamoring myself, as I understand the concept of not wanting to blow the graphic-novel wad all in one month, but I keep seeing questions about Sandman and other fan-faves and no mention of the big Double-M. On the other hand, it may be kinda frustrating to try reviewing an unfinished story.

There's that, but there's also the frustration of it being insanely difficult to find copies that aren't insanely overpriced, so a review will only serve the purpose of telling people "here's something really cool that you'll never ever find and be able to read for yourself". I was fortunate enough to borrow and read it all a while back, and I have a few of the early issues myself, but it's been years since I've read it and unfortunately my memory's a bit fuzzy.

Don't get me wrong, the comic had it's bonuses, I just always felt that the only person who should toy with Dr. Thompson's likeness (in any form) it should be Dr. Thompson....
Or Johnny Depp (He had the good Dr's blessing, even spending massive amounts of time with Thompson).

Ive only been able to find one of the collections but its one of my favorite comics. The way Spider delivers his opinion is brutal and i suppose thats why its refreshing
