"Wait, this comic is about a group that robs from mega-churches and gives the money to charity? That's cool as hell! This comic is really great!"

- Robert Kirkman

"The Tithe's aim is true - targeting the hypocrisy born of naivete. As such it will piss off a lot of people. My only regret is that I didn't write it. Well, done, Mr. Hawkins!"

- Jim Valentino

"If you're fan of heist movies like Heat and The Town, you'll get a kick out of The Tithe. Instead of banks or art museums however, we're robbing mega-churches and the morality of all involved is put to the test."

- Matt Hawkins

The other day, my memory was jogged to think of Top Cow's Pilot Season. As far as I can tell, only two winners were ever made into miniseries - Genius, which was not stunning, and Twilight Guardian. Genius took 6 years to make it from pilot to a mini series, and for that reason, I wasn't incredibly optimistic when my pick The Beauty won the 2011 Pilot Season

It's a police procedural... whose twist is established on the very first page, with a short info dump )

I've posted from Common Grounds before (check the tags), it's one of my favourite series. Like one of my other favourite series "Astro City", it's a series of slices of life in a world with superbeings, but looking at the bits BETWEEN the slugfests.

Each story has a different guest artist... in this case, George Perez which, as you might imagine, is another reason to get hold of a copy to read the whole thing .

The last time I posted, we were visited by the writer himself, which was fun.

This is another story, as a hero reflects on his...

Top Cow and Marvel put out the first ish of their Star Trek/X-Men crossover, and I bring you one page simply because everything on it made me giggle.

Full context is not altogether clear at this point; all y'all need to know is, a very 1990s X-Team has teleported onboard the Enterprise 1701-A to deal with a threat involving Proteus and the Shi'Ar on the X-side and Gary Mitchell (of TOS s1 ep "Where No Man Has Gone Before") on the Trek side.

After a bumpy X-port into the Enterprise's cargo bay, the two crews have to start meeting at some point, of course...

There is actually quite an appropriate explanation for this, sir! )

I don't know if I'll stick with this title, but it's hitting my fangirl sweet spots a lot better than that Trek/Legion crossover did.

Following on from yesterday, I bring you some more Witchblade (issues 63 and 64), feat. Magdalena. Whose name, in this incarnation (legacy heroine), is Patience.

This post also includes one of my favourite comics panels ever, drawn by Francis Manapul. WHY was he the first peciller whose name I knew? LEARN! SEE! WONDER!

Way back when I put up the last requests post (the next one is COMING SOON), I promised some of Francis Manapul's run on Witchblade to somebody. I forget who. I am sorry.

I just managed to get those scans done. The quality is weird and I don't know why. Better late and dodgy than never??

One thing I didn't notice at the time but find wanting in hindsight, is that whilst I was reading Witchblade in.. 2002-2003?.. and in the live-action television show as well, Sara doesnt really have that much in the way of female support characters. Her flake sister shows up sometimes, and there was that daughter of her dead best friend, and every now and then Lara Croft would drop by.. but the day to day, comic to comic stuff was pretty dudefilled.

So it was always nice when another lady did come and visit - such as here. I picked these scans in particular because it's also always neat to see some evidence of in-world "rules" when you're dealing with supernatural jiggery pokery.


I'm not that fond of the way Top Cow chose to advertise it, but maybe you are.

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.

five pages from Artifacts #13 )

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 )
