Massive kudos to hellocookie for talking about the Royals: Masters Of War book on the latest Talking Comics podcast. Glad that you enjoyed the book.
I wasn't aware that the writer was the guy that did the Miss Fury book (which was not a great introduction to the character), so it was great to hear a perspective from a similar situation.
Thanks muchly! I really enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. Well, not that I didn't think I would enjoy it, but just that I didn't realize what it was until I stumbled across the single issue.
I hope that it keeps being a really interesting story. I'm definitely going to follow it.
The more I think about it and re-thumb threw the pages of Royals the more I like it. It raises some serious questions about morality. If given special talents shouldn't you use those talents to help others? But at what cost? This is really good stuff.
I decided to do a re-read of my Lucifer TPBs for the first time in a few years. I'm just up to A Dalliance with the Damned right now, but holy crap, this series is just as amazing as I remember. It remains tied with Sandman as my favorite comic series of all-time. I saw that Vertigo has come out with some repackaged Lucifer TPBs, although my shop said they didn't have any additional content, so I'll stick with the ones I have. Anyway, if you never checked out this series and like villains/antiheroes and plenty of mythology, definitely give it a go.

Recently got the Deluxe edition Book 1 of 100 Bullets for my birthday, which has the first nineteen issues, i think. I am now halfway through and i'm really enjoying it!Really digging the dark and gritty story, the art took a little getting used to, but i'm really liking it now. I'm really glad i discovered this series, and i definitely want to read it all!
Speaking of Vertigo, i'm almost done with the Wake.Three more issues to go!
Due to my already strained pull list I really don't tend to pick up Vertigo series in issue format and instead wait for trades. However I have just added Sheriff of Babylon to my monthly pull list, I have really been loving the work Tom King has been doing recently on his other books, so I cannot wait to read this as Tom will be able to bring a level of authenticity to the subject matter due to his own history.

I hear Lucifer is coming back? Can anyone confirm this?? If so, HECK YEAH!
I try and pick up all the vertigo titles that i can. Buying the trade does nothing to help any of them stay around, so lets support these books and keep them coming. Vertigo is in pretty dire need of sales, so i hope that people that wait for trades will start buying the singles more and more. We all know that is how a book stays around, not jsut buying the trade. Hey, buy both, buy the digital as-well.... but please grab these floppies!!!! Vertigo has been killing it for such a long time, and latley they seem to be coming into a new Renaissance, in a way.

I finally finished 100 Bullets yesterday, also read the Brother Lono mini series.
While I absolutely loved the first 20 or 30 issues, it became sort of a task to read the rest, mostly because I didn't understand what exactly was going on half of the time, or who were friends and who were enemies.Maybe that was my fault, maybe I should have read it all at once instead of a couple of issues every so often, or maybe i should have paid more attention when I was reading, but I had a hard time with it.Brother Lono I liked a lot though, not too long, and a pretty straightforward story.
