Someone’s been paying attention to what I like. Today’s comic package included a James Bond graphic novel written and illustrated by Mike Grell, one of my fave creators. That’s right, I shortened the word favorite. Deal with it.
I also got a Masamune Shirow book. I’ve got a bunch of the Appleseed books he did for Eclipse in the 80s, and this issue of Dominion will be very comfortable next to them. This book was turned into the anime Dominion: Tank Police, which I owned on VHS, and makes about as much sense as you’d imagine, given that title.
In the verb/noun title range, we have Blood Sword and Death Hawk. The latter has a cover by my friend (acquaintance of many years) Dave Dorman, and pencils by Adam Hughes whom I’ve never met (met once or twice). The former is the creative work of a lot of people whose names I can’t likely list or joke about without coming off as a racist sot, but also included a cryptic hand written note. If I were Nic Cage I’d use this note to justify some complicated B&E and destruction of historic art. I’m not Nic though, so I’m just going to post the pic on the Internet and practice my emoting.
Rounding out the envelope are some perilously old Gold Key Peanuts books that I may be forced to scan just for the Sluggo B stories.
