I've been meaning to post this for a minute, but Scud: The Disposable Assasin #21 is finally out after a 10 year hiatus.

YOU ARE SHITTING ME.

I literally did a real-world, physical, non-metaphorical double-take when I saw it on the shelf.

So, comics!  Almanzo likes Scott Pilgrim; neat!

I just read issue one of Jeff Smith's new comic, RASL, and it's pretty great.  It's about an interdimensional art thief, and it's full of some cool-ass action.

I also picked up a Lewis Trondheim collection of his autobio stuff called Little Nothings.  I'm looking forward to that.  Any of you Europeans ever read his stuff?  I'm led to believe he's big in France.

Yes he is. I believe I've only read some of the Lapinot stuff (aka McConey in English, according to Wikipedia) - I liked it, as far as I can remember. I might have read something autobiographical by him, but I'm not sure anymore. Let us know how it is!

Will do!  I also really dug his Astronauts Of The Future series that he did with Manu Larcenet.  Though I can't figure out how they divided the labor on that in terms of writing/drawing.

I'm getting legitimately excited about DC's Final Crisis. Grant Morrison is one of the few legitimate mad scientists at work in this world, and I just know that he's going to come through with some insanity.

oh man, i swore to myself that after the disappointment that was countdown and the umpteen 52/countdown spinoff books (read--trying to get me to spend assloads of money for mediocre books by pretending they'd be as awesome as 52 YEAH RIGHT) there was no way i was gonna get final crisis. then i found out that grant morrison is writing it by himself and i just couldn't resist. the sad part is that, because i passed on the million spinoff books and only read the first 10 issues or so of countdown, i will probably have no idea what the fuck is going on, just like when i tried to follow infinite crisis without having read identity crisis (since read--it was actually pretty good), villains united, the rann/thanagar war, and something like 15 other event miniseries. at least this time it'll be by a good writer instead of that loser geoff johns, though. i can't stand that dude.

Yeah, DC seems a little guilty of expecting you to read all of the ancillary series and stuff. I thought it was bad leading up to Infinite Crisis, but it's been terrible with Countdown - there are entire plots and episodes that make zero sense to you if you aren't reading other series. I think that Final Crisis is really going to be a standalone thing, though, esp. with Morrison in control. All of this stuff that's been going on in Countdown is merely the preamble and basic setup, but the whole thing's going to be well and self-contained, I think.

Also, Death of the New Gods has been absolutely embarrassing and terrible, and I'm a huge Starlin fan. What went wrong, Jim!?

That man is one of the only people who can make the cheesiest parts of the DC canon universe readable and high-quality.

past his prime? i can't even remember the last time i read something jim starlin was involved in. sometime in the early 90s, i would guess. if i bought a series he was involved in now, i'd have no idea what to expect.

I just think I like Marvel Starlin better...all that Infinity bullcrap, the original death of Mar-Vell, even the great Quasar series in the early nineties.

Man you know like that part of the Wire where McNulty goes to the FBI profilers on his serial killer, and they give him a picture of himself, I've kind of felt like that from a couple of Onstad's Roast Beef strips (roast beef strips!  yum!)  Then I get all, 'man why you even got to say that, so what if a man has to gaze out his peephole 23 minutes before he gets the courage up to leave the apartment why you tellin a man's secr I mean ahahah, that Roast Beef.  I wonder what kind of trouble he's going to get himself in next.

Heather thought the Roast Beef decision making flowchart strip was so apropos she bought me a framed copy which is my apartment's sole decoration.

In all honesty, this strip is pretty much a perfect description of what being depressed means.

http://achewood.com/index.php?date=10222002 I had this on my door for awhile. I always have the urge to say godDAMMIT what am I going to do about my problems when i'm being whiny.

I just reread the entire Great Outdoor Fight sequence, and man... Best webcomic ever, one of the best comics ever. Onstad stumbles occasionally, or just doesn't quite bring the funny every strip, but I love it as a text that's a complete world unto itself. Very character driven, genuinely innovative and creative stuff.

I dunno why I feel the need to sing Achewood's praises in here, really, but there it is.
