    I'm hoping that it gets the Absolute treatment soon.

Would've enjoyed it more if not for some of the more unrealistic (for comics) plot threads. Maybe they get wrapped up nicely in the next volume? Fun to see where some of the movie plots are referenced from. Also, the first stuff I've read during the Osborne era, at least knowingly. Kinda hard to believe.
    Did the Fraction run ever get completed in the OHC format? I remember reading the first arc or two and really enjoying it.

    Well this was weird but very imaginative. And very European. If you want weird sci-fi in a nice, large hc get this book.

    What if MoneyPenny was secretly more badass than 007? Great premise, good execution and I had a lot of fun reading it. Not the best Brubaker but I would highly recommend it to anyone especially for fans of James Bond movies.

    Very good western from Jodorowsky, straight forward and with just a touch of weirdness and his usual incestual themes to make it unique. I was a bit afraid after Son of the gun but this is nothing like that. It's just a damn good western series with great art.
    I've been on the fence regarding Nikopol as it looks great but I wasn't sure about the story. I think it is on my list now.

    Now that I'm done with the Brubaker Cap run this has moved up the reading list.

    Bouncer, I love Jodorowsky but this wasn't tempting. So what is the weirdness is in it?

    Graphic Novel #20: Hostage
    Excellent piece of comics reporting, showing the life of a French NGO worker during the months he spends as a hostage of the Chechnens. Great storytelling.

    Graphic Novel #21: In The Days of the Mob
    Jack Kirby at the height of his powers on crime comics not approved the Comics Code of Authority. Very interesting and generally successful experiment.

    Archie was very good, I'm hoping for a nice hardcover collection.

    The two GN's look cool too.

    it's only a touch of weirdness just compared to most westerns, can't really put my finger on it right now, mostly about the incest stuff and just the overall tone and the character relationships.
    Now Nikopol on the other hand is much weirder, like if Metabarons is a cocaine fuelled cosmic rollercoaster with heavy metal in the background then Nikopol is some 90s RHCP with shrooms inspired by French arthouse stuff.

    Sadly, no. There are only 2 ohcs that collect the first 32 issues or so. Heard the quality dips significantly towards the end of his run tho

    The revolution started, but the series was clearly meant to last longer. It's allegedly going to have more issue sin the future.

    Nikipol's pretty good.

    One way it was described was that the story is intentionally vague while the art is super-detailed. It's a compelling combination.

    Yeah, it kind of did but it's too bad it was never finished in OHC.

    I'd add Bruce Jones' Hulk to that list as well

    Exactly. Train left the station on that one, too.

    Nikopol sounds more like my thing, I'll put that closer to the top.

    I quite like books that allow you to think, so another reason to buy it.

    Really need to get back on the Revival train, it is one of the few series I'm following in trade. Really enjoyed it so far.
