It's one painted in Percocet and colored by crime.

It's one where he has to put on the mask of the man he shot (Kip Burland; he's Greg Hettinger) so that he can satisfy the urges calling from within him.

It's one into which two much darker intruded themselves.

They met him in a graveyard. )

He was called for by Carmine Tango.

X met him atop a skyscraper under construction.

The vigilante'd come looking for the astrologically-obsessed gangster he had a history with.

What he got was the luck-obsessed killer he had a history with.

A history that he thought'd had its last page written. )

Ex-Con #1

"Ex-Con is the collision of three of my favorite sub-genres: the prison novel, the obnoxious-con-man-gets-humbled story and, of course, the 1980s L.A. scumbag saga."

- Duane Swierczynski

The one that ended X's Better Off Dead arc this August, between the book's titular protagonist and the evident major antagonist of the Dark Horse line it's a part of (Project Black Sky, which's basically several superhero books set in a shared universe that's like a less somber Planetary), was well done as a battle between someone with superpowers and someone without.

It'd begun in this August's issue #15, with X's crashing a meeting between the two men whose forces'd been at war with each other across the city of Arcadia: the astrologically fixated mobster Carmine Tango and the very wealthy foreigner Peter Winter. The latter'd just beaten the former, having gotten him to drink poisoned wine and induced his loyal second-in-command to turn traitor, and was about to learn everything he knew about X..

.. when in came the vigilante in question through the window of the restaurant they were in, sword in hand.

(Before I go any further, a heads up: there's some explicit violence under the cut.)

Well, sword in one hand and unfortunate henchman of Winter's in the other.. but that guy didn't even show up on the next page, so.. )

So in the last issue of Birds of Prey, Batgirl joined the group, they located their cleaner boys, and before they knew it, they found themselves on the streets with Batgirl missing from the group.

...or was she really there to begin with? Surely Poison Ivy would remember a foe she's fought! And speaking of Ivy...what other deck of cards is she playing?

4 pages of 'what the fuck did I just read?' D: )

Here are my less-than-four pages from this week's comic that had me, lazy trade-only buyer, trekking to an actual comic store to snag it.


Deadpool & Cable #26: In which Deadpool nostalgizes/summarizes/hallucinates the high points of Cable & Deadpool and Messiah War and etcetera to the present, viewed as Deadpool's bittersweet love letter to his BFF, Cable. And by "BFF," I mean "apparently Valentine's Day has arrived a week and a half early!"

Read the first 6 sad/funny/sad pages here. (ETA Link fixed.) And then 2 pages plus a bit under the cut!

It was love at first sight. )

Greetings True Believers!

I picked-up the Deadpool: Origins one-shot today and it was surprisingly good.

We all know DP as the merc-with-a-mouth and a jokester but Wade isn't always about the laughs......4 scans.
