Theres a review of a mini-comic by Cartoon Kate Evans over at TRS2 this morning. I really must get round to returning that to the Oxford Action Resource Centre. Its a marvellous service that has been thrown into some turmoil following the financial insecurity of the East Oxford Community Centre Social Club. Caption attendees and other supporters will be happy to learn that as of a few weeks ago, the bar has been re-opened.

If you're serious about the first one (and who would make up stuff like that), you and I are going to have to go on some sort of holy crusade sir. Involving photography masks well written stories sideshades and oh yes i am serious.

The Brian Bendis/Henry Bendix thing will need some explanation as I am curious and I were asleep for that while.

Blasphemer!

How can Jack T. Chick be an "overrated" Comic artist when he has never been given the credit he surely deserves? I think he's right up there with the-um-Gods,a true comics Genuis.

Wow - Chick oil painting movie could be some interesting fun when I have some slack time going, and also the movies made from his comics. I've seen a few of the shorts from Hot Chicks already and they are a bunch of fun.

Thankyou you.

I think I can agree with all of those, except the ones I don't know.

Och yeah, but that was a terrible summation of my comics habits. Not representin !

Transformers should have had another entry, as should Cerebus and I didn't even REPRESENT the genius that is DAVID MACK.

Hey Benchilada, give me more Sir Reginald email talktalk.

I recall seeing a second one last year, not written by Great Alan. I'm guessing the third won't be either. Second series how good ?

"21) Foggy Nelson is a character I can see myself being for Halloween. "
Hey, Foggy Nelson rocks! He's the soul of Daredevil! Foggy for President!

"12) Love and Rockets is a comic I've meant to read, but haven't done so yet."
It's obvious from your responses that you're someone who likes GOOD comics. Try "Love and Rockets". You won't regret it. Honest. Take this from a longtime addict of the world of Los Bros Hernandez (the "Locas" and "Palomar" volumes are a good place to start)

I agree with phlebas that Daredevil's reputation has been ruined by the film, I suspect that the (ersatz=) Ultimate versions of DD and EleKtra are designed to fit the lame expectations of the filmgoers, rather than fitting the epic, bigger than life people of the original and totally awesome of the original Dd comix
