    Interesting, it looks like every issue is getting a variant cover.

    Rather than boosting sales figures, I would like it if DH would back some new comic titles. More financially risky, I suppose, but I think they could add to the diversity of their holdings and maybe broaden the market, too.

    This series continues to be fantastic, I love the character work with the Professor here.

    But, would Dark Horse be able to handle additional titles on the production schedule?
    Variant covers don't take up as many resources as all the writing/ art/ lettering/ coloring/ editing/etc. that each additional issue does, not to mention scheduling the print run, packaging and shipping the books, and that's if they can get support of stores all across the world to make it worthwhile.
    And even if it was offered digital-only, you still have all the writing/ art/ lettering/ coloring/ editing/etc. required.

    It can be a little heavy on the dialog, but none of it feels completely fucking unnecessary.
    Totally agree! Heís doing a good job on this one. I think the story here suits his writing style. Iíd hate to see him writing something like the Lobster, but these dialogue heavy interactions are perfectly suited to him. Itís almost a complete flip of the Strode miniseries where she was talking to herself all the time to reveal plot information because there was nobody else in the scene.

    Did anybody else notice that in issue #1, in the pub scene near the end of the issue, Bruttenholm was saying
    I really don't speak German. I can understand it a little, but...
    but during the sťance in issue #2, he seemed to have no difficulty conversing in German with the spirit of the German soldier who had been used for the transference at Mayhew's grave?

    Maybe shoot an email to Hellmail. That's the sort of thing they like to fix for the trade.

    Good catch! Hopefully they can repair this one.
