AKA proof that Greg Land can actually be decent. I bought this when I was just getting into comics, from the first comic book store I ever set foot in. Ah, memories...

Some of you might remember Crossgen Comics, the hot new comic company from the late 90s/early 2000s that went belly-up not even a decade later. I personally think a lot of Crossgen's stuff was really good and unique, and it's too bad the company didn't last. It tried to have something for everyone, dipping into many different genres but with a concept connecting all of them (the Sigil-bearers characters)

So, Sojourn. Lord of the rings style fantasy/adventure series featuring a female protagonist, written by Ron Marz and drawn by Greg Land. Here's a series' summary from Wikipedia:

A woman named Arwyn, her dog Kreeg, and a one-eyed man named Gareth travel throughout the lands of the planet Quin looking for five shards of a magic arrow to defeat the evil dictator of the land, Mordath.

In this series, the main character isn't the Sigil-bearer, the bad guy is. 7 pages out of 22, warning for violence and implied death of a child. )

'Honestly, the initial impetus came from Dan DiDio, who called one day and said, "I'd like to see you take on these characters." This was not a title that I'd even been thinking of, because the iconic Bwa-ha-ha JLI are a bit beyond the kind of material I've usually written. But doing something you haven't done before is always part of the allure, part of the challenge.' - Ron Marz

"These issues can't sprawl and become exercises in nostalgia. You have to get in, tell your story, and get out. In the age of decompressed storytelling, I think it's refreshing to have two months of tight, character-focused issues." - Ron Marz

Something Dan DiDio said in September has blended with something from THE FINAL NIGHT.

"Heroes shouldn’t have happy personal lives. They are committed to being that person and committed to defending others at the sacrifice of their own personal interests.

That’s very important and something we reinforced. People in the Bat family their personal lives basically suck. Dick Grayson, Bruce Wayne, Tim Drake, Barbara Gordon and Kathy Kane. It’s wonderful that they try to establish personal lives, but it’s equally important that they set them aside. That is our mandate, that is our edict and that is our stand."

My love for the genius that was Jim Henson is fairly well known here I think.

So for Archaia Entertainment to have out, almost simultaneously, two different hardcover publications based on his work (and another to come in the shape of a Labyrinth novella) is a source of unparalleled joy (Well, pretty much unparalleled, within limits y'know) so I want to share these with you all!

First up

The Dark Crystal - Creation Myths )
And then

The Storyteller )

Artifacts began last year and featured the thirteen titular items of power in Top Cow's superhero/urban fantasy universe, which includes the Darkness and the Witchblade. When all thirteen artifacts are gathered in one place, the series stated, it has the power to end and rebuild the universe.

Long story short, there was a guy who wanted to do that, and he had an army of killer androids meant to help him with it. At the end of #12, it looked like he'd actually succeeded.

This week, I have been mostly reading The Magdalena.

I had a flick through vol.1, but it was too dark and the art too cheesecakey and Top Cow-y (I know, there's a shock.) Why would the Catholic Church's black ops warrior wear a belly shirt and a pair of briefs as well as her armour and cowl? It's not like the Catholic church is a massive fan of people in their orders flaunting their flesh.

The third volume was much better, with much clearer art and a decent (but not great) story. I just need to read #8 of it and then have a look at the Phil Hester drawn Magdalena vs. Daredevil.

For those of you who don't know, this is what the Magdalena is )

A/N: Much love to Shea and Kamster for helping me put this together.  This post is really, really long and focuses largely on racial inequalities in the US.  This is in no-way directed to Scans_Daily or its philosophy.  I just need to get this off my chest.

So as some might know their was some big news concerning Sinestro so I thought this'd be an interesting time to post an origin story of his written in 1999 (funnily enough at a time he was dead) in Secret Origins of the Supervillains.

Oddly enough I only really got it for the Encantadora tale but eh.



3 and 1/3 pages of a 10 page story.

Who was Sinestro? )

This is, I believe, the last arc of Superman I read before giving up the title for a few years at the turn of the century. It came right after the two John Rozum books I posted the other day. Superman had not too long before resolved the Superman Red/Superman Blue situation with his battle with the Millenium Giants and the Dominus story that had each of his four titles taking place in a different "age" of comics, kinda. At this point I'm pretty sorry to say he was pretty much treading water and you can see why after Infinite Crisis they pared his books down to just two a month, as treading water is bad enough on its own, but four times a month is going to kill interest quick.

Anyway, Ron Marz, then Tom Peyer came in for an arc that spanned a month's worth of Superman books, starting in Superman #147

Good superheroes just can't get a break. Literally; when's the last time a superhero went on a vacation, a family outing or a honeymoon that didn't involve an alien invasion, supervillain plot, the kidnapping of a friend/partner, a terrorist attack and so on?

To illustrate, I show you the 1998 crossover Three of a Kind, published in three parts in Green Lantern #96, Green Arrow #130 and Flash #134 and written by Ron Marz, Chuck Dixon and Grant Morrison respectively.

Maybe they should just have gone by teleporter )

A while ago, [personal profile] neo_prodigy posted a list of his favorite LGBT characters in comics, one of whom was Danielle Baptiste. She used to have the Witchblade; now she's the host of the Angelus. I pointed out in that thread that Dani was still in a will-they/won't-they concerning her relationship with her girlfriend Finch, so including her in the conversation seemed slightly premature.

As it turns out, he sorta called it.

four pages from this week's Angelus #5 )
