But the other half thinks it's gorgeous!

We've seen some odd sequels over the past few years, perhaps most notably someone else writing "Peanuts" comics, but even that pales next to the chutzpah it takes to relaunch the classic, groundbreaking, 114 year old. "Little Nemo in Slumberland"

But darn me if this isn't a lovely looking take on it )

If you've bought an Image book in the last two years, the odds are that you've seen an ad for Revival; usually one looking like this. The covers are all (with one exception) drawn by Jenny Frison. I posted the "beginners' guide" a while back, in case you are unfamiliar with the series.

It is a genuinely unsettling book, not just in terms of gore (there's lashings of it in this post, so, you've been warned), in body horror (which is closely tied in to gore. I felt my stomach turn when we got to the girl on the cover of #13) and the unpleasantness of people (Like a lot of horror, it raises the question of "Who is the real sick man, in this so called society?" -there was one bit at the end of the third trade that was horrible because it was likely).

It was also nominated in the 2013 Harvey for Best Artist(Mike Norton), Best Writer (Tim Seeley), Best Cover Artist (Jenny Frison) and Best New Series, but didn't win any of them.

20 covers from Revival )

Back cover of Fat Freddy's Cat #1 (1988)

Hey cats, and cats' owners servants humans! Ever been frustrated by your inability to communicate with each other? Well, Fat Freddy Freekowtski (of the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers), and his cat he was apparently too lazy to name, can identify with you.

Is that all you can say? 'Meow?' )

Marvel's recent 100th Anniversary specials are an interesting gimmick. Basically, the concept is that these books are actual comics published about 40 years from now in the future, special milestone issues celebrating Marvel Comics' 100th anniversary in 2061.
