  1. “Comics were better in the 80’s.”

    “This is a gift that does not stop giving.”

    You’re so right, Patrick. Marvel have done a really good job with these Marvelman reprints. The Leach/Davis artwork looks fantastic. It’s just such a shame that there’s only a handful of Davis chapters left before the Eclipse stuff starts and the art turns to crap.

      1. Gibbons Dan Dare and stuff? That’s exciting. I’ve never read that and always wanted to. I’ll have to try not to miss that.

          1. No. Rogue Tropper is something different. It’s OK but not a character I’m all that interested in.

            Dan Dare is a well famous character from the old UK Eagle comic in the 1950’s. I have all of those innice hardback reprints. But when 2000AD launched (Dredd was an unknown and didn’t appear until issue #2) they headlined a new updated (now well outdated) version with art by Gibbons. I’ve never read it. I think it’s one of the few old 2000AD strips that doesn’t get reprinted. I don’t know how long it ran or if it was any good. But it’s well early Gibbons work.

              1. Ya there is a new series coming out from IDW as well (looking forward to that). It was Gibbons that created him I think.

              1. Was the Ennis Dan Dare the series from Virgin? Seven issues with covers by Dave Gibbons and Garry Leach? That was like 4 or 5 years back now.

                Grant Morrison did one too. In a UL monthly called Revolver. Art by Rian Hughes. It was Dan Dare’s final battle with The Mekon. It’s collected together. Dunno if it’s still available though.

  2. OK, Patrick, between this and your piece on Guillory, you’ve sold me on Chew — it’s being added to my list of things I should read in the near future . . .

  3. Some really good panels. Wish I could have bought all the issues to see what each story was about.

    Haven’t gotten to First contact storyline yet but its next on my list.

    I normally get Hawkeye in trade format but David Aja’s art has grown on me.

    Finally got to see Bagley draw Galactus.

    Although seeing the earth blow up was cool in Uncanny Avengers, looks like this storyline is going to drag on…and how is this storyline not having repercussions in the rest of the Marvel titles???

    1. I will say that Bagley did draw a great Galactus for the story. Well, maybe, could’ve done without the glowing highlights around his face . . .

        1. Good question. Since it seems to be a large part of Bagley’s take on the character, I’m assuming that he was responsible . . .
