I got a box of 163 Fantastic Four comics. Now I'm going to Review them...
This was excellent, Kello. How soon does this arc end? I have the feeling it's going to be really hard for me to avoid being unintentionally spoiled...and unlike most superhero comics where I don't care about being spoiled, I actually do care about this one.And it's always good to hear someone else singing Alan Davis's greatness. I've started reading a collection of his first comics work (in 2000 AD), which I'll be reviewing in either January or February.
Thanks Marc! The "Countdown to Casualty" reaches "1" next issue, but I'm assuming the actual death happens in #587 (released in January), since that's the issue with the polybag and all that. So don't come to my site after the next review haha. I'll let you know when the trade comess out in like 4 months.Yeah I got the "Modern Masters" Alan Davis book, read like 20 pages of it and gave up, because I had no clue about any of those British comics. It might do me some good to brush up on that part of comics history.
The "Modern Masters" books are awesome because they literally cover the person's entire career. There's always inevitably something in there that you've never read or even heard of, which I think is part of the fun...basically, I look at them as guides for my own future reading. The 2000 AD reprints are really inexpensive (usually MSRP $19.99), especially in comparison to the overpriced junk that Marvel and DC are always releasing. The Alan Davis one I'm reading is called Harry 20 on the High Rock. At some point I'll get The Complete D.R. & Quinch, which Davis did with Alan Moore.
Awesome review. I was hoping the death would be next issue, but I guess the more of the soon-to-be-deceased character we see, the better.
So do you have any guesses as to who it will be?
That was a joke btw... Sorry, i should have put a wink on it.
