Right about now, I'm at exactly the right age to start pursuing all the Classics in comic-book history in hopes that I'll become better at winning arguments with other comic book nerds on the Internet. And when it comes to the Classics, there's only one name for someone as myopic as me: Alan Moore.

Sure, Moore's star has faded for many fans today, but his mastery over dialogue, pacing, and plotting alike still leaves roughly 80% of comic-book creators today in the dust, and I've never read more than a fraction of his work. No time like the present to fix that.

And since I'm an obsessive little bastard, I insist on poring over (almost) every little bit of Mr. Moore's extensive bibliography, starting from the very beginning. I'd originally planned on doing this series in strict chronological order, but I quickly realized that that wouldn't quite work, so I'm doing it by franchise instead - though still in rough chronological order. And because all reading and no discussion makes Lego go crazy, I invite all of you well-read S_D'ers to come read along with me.

We'll be beginning with his five backup strips for Doctor Who, a series that I know and cherish well, as is mandatory of every geek on the Internet. Seriously, it's about a space cop who goes flying around in a phone booth fighting the Borg, right? Right?

Behind the cut: my first real contact with Doctor Who. Thanks, Alan! )

So through-out the current Punisher Max arc we've had this even more terrifying version of Bullseye who kills innocent families just so he try and get a better glimpse inside of Frank's head. For most of the arc the closest thing Bullseye's shown to a humanizing trait is his obvious Man-crush on Frank.

Then in issue #9 we get this confrontation between Vanessa Fisk and Bullseye.

Greetings True Believers!

Here are three pages from PunisherMAX #9. MAX-Bullseye's man-crush on the Punisher is strong and pure.

Context is neither wanted or needed. Enjoy!

This entertains me greatly, so I tracked down some back issues to put it all together. It's sort of a gift-wrapped crossover.

This begins with Ennis's run on Hellblazer, and goes all the way through to Punisher.

I'm a pretty big fan of Garth Ennis, and over the course of reading most of his work, I've noticed that he's been pulling a Stephen King relatively recently. Despite the fact that many of his series are in different genres and published by different companies, they all seem to take place in their own odd and contiguous sub-continuity.

If I was Philip Jose Farmer, I could probably turn this into something huge and meaningful, since it means, among other things, that Ennis's Punisher is set in the Vertigo version of the DCU.

I plan to follow up on that with another post, but for now, this is as close as we'll probably ever get to a sequel to Preacher.

One page from Preacher #8; two pages from The Boys #27 )
