    Enigma is always forgotten...

    Shame to see Discipline has been moved but this mini also looks very promising
    "That night he walked through fire, and the fire didn't burn him. That night he walked through bullets, and the bullets didn't mark him. They say that night Veto Skreemer chased death. They say that he found death many timed. But he would not or could not stay dead."

    I'm just glad that he's decided to focus on creator-owned. None of his work-for-hire stuff has done anything for me since that Namor mini he did with Ribic.

    In the meantime.....I really do wish that Vertigo would get on it and collect the entirety of his run on Shade. The fact that it's not collected is a travesty.

    I suppose that I should be happy that they at least put the whole run up on Comixology.

    I might give this a chance. I've actually basically written off Milligan at this point. Greek Street did nothing for me nor did his work on Red Lanterns or Justice League Dark. Haven't read any of his stuff since then. But this, Terminal Hero, and the Discipline (whenever that comes out) all sound promising.

    I enjoyed all three of those runs and Doop has been really fun. But yeah I think he's starting on a better foot here than he has on his last few books

    I really didn't like Red Lanterns, but I definitely could afford to give Greek Street another look one day. I may have been guilty of writing that one off too quickly. I also got the feeling that his run on JLD would read better in one big trade, which it now is. Following it monthly was a bit frustrating but I imagine it's a solid enough read in trade.

    This looks really interesting. Is there a list of highly rated mini series that are upcoming and ongoing that I can look at? I like the wake, trillium, and am getting trees and the woods.
    Action, ANXM, ASM, Aquaman, AatO, Avengers, Batgirl, Batman, B+R, Det, GA, GL, JL, JLD, JLU, Sinestro, SM/WW, Swamp Thing, Thor

    Si Spencer's Bodies is on the way, too. Some great artistic talent on that mini, too.

    Many titles from Milligan's last few years ended abruptly so I'm glad this one was designed as a mini.

    I think this looks good but I have a hard time getting excited when they announced a different Milligan title at Vertigo nearly a year ago that has yet to materialize. I know they recognized that, but still.

    Plus, where the f is Bermejo's Suiciders? Suiciders and Discipline were the only books I really wanted in that rebooted / revamped Vertigo lineup, and they are nowhere.
