    I would add that the work on Conan that was continued by L. Sprague De Camp after Howard's suicide is also very enjoyable.

    I was wondering about those stories. Funny, I've known about Howard's life for a long time so when I saw the movie about his life, The Whole Wide World, I expected the ending, but it's funny when other peeps have watched it and they always talk about how the ending surprised them.

    Speaking of L. Sprague de Camp, I did read his bio on Lovecraft. Does that count for something?

    I have not. I just recently found out that Dave Lapham did a run on Conan (and Kull), so I'll definitely check those out.

    Ditto the originals.

    Hooray, more post-convert. Do us all a favor, until studios either commit to filming in 3d OR using the better/more expensive post-convert process that I have heard so much about...DON'T PAY INFLATED TICKET PRICES!!!!!!!

    Yeah, **** that. If it wasn't filmed for 3D, why bother?

    Wow. Such a quietly consistent book. Beautifully done. Willingham is so confident and comfortable with characters that we all know and love. I don't need to rush out and buy single issues on this, but I do pre-order the trades. They are like the best warm cup of tea in front of a fire. Pure comfort food for the soul. I have to compare these to Sandman, which I loved...but always felt was too smart for the room. This is like Sandman for regular folks.(PLEASE don't slam me with complaints. I loved Sandman...it just felt sometimes that you needed a lit degree.) Anyway, it's a beautiful book and if someone ever gets smart(Showtime/HBO...or Fx/AMC) it will make a tremendous series. Hopefully with Once Upon a Time doing well it will force the issue.

    And this



    I am already on record with my love/awe of the BOYS, this mini covering the backstory of Billy Butcher could have been 'as expected'. And, to a point, it was. But things that you knew were so much sadder/maddening when played out. I think this helped to flesh out what could have been a very monochromatic character(see Ennis' Punisher for an example of that/sorry Adgy). Turns out that Butcher knows what a 'orrible bastard he is, and his relationship with his father lets you see where that came from. His 'goodbye' to dad is horribly appropriate(and inaproppriate at the same time). Just hammers home the sadness that this great story has an end in sight. Expect much praise from me as that moment gets nearer.

    spoilers...they show Terror as a pup and do a nice job of letting you understand why BB has a wee dug. I still have not forgiven Ennis for that...

    What people with a Lit degree aren't regular people? :P

    I am quite behind on those Fables TPBs.

    How many have come out?
