I have already read that so don't think I will bother again, it really is a product of it's time. Now Zombies have replaced shiney vampires as flavour of the month and it seems pretty stale....also the fact that it has had 12 sequels at this stage doesn't do it any favours.

I enjoyed Daredevil, although it could have done without Captain America in the final issue. And I am always disappointed that when I read a storyline that I have heard/read a lot about in magazines like Wizard, that it actually transpires so quickly in the storyline. I like slow building stories and it would have been nice to see the breakdown of Daredevil transpire over a much longer time period. Didn't detract from my enjoyment too much though.

I reckon She-Hulk will be next up for me.

So I might be nit picking but at the end of Avengers Forever how do the good Avengers know who the bad Avengers are...and the bad Avengers know who the good ones are?

Just finished 'Welcome Back Frank'.

Ennis is such a one trick pony it's not even funny, good thing he is good at that trick.

It's Preacher lite but still enjoyable, looking forward to the second part.

I thought it was ok, not a big dillon fan tbh, but it was different

For my money the best thing Ennis + Dillon ever did was the Heartland one-shot about Kit Ryan. I often find Ennis to be a bit one-note, and Dillon's female characters almost all look the same - but they both nailed their craft in this story; if you don't appreciate it you've a heart made of stone.

I am not the biggest Dillon fan myself, his art just looks very static and has little movement in it. Kinda reminds me a little of Frank Quitely although I much prefer Quitely's.

Ennis's work on Battlefields/Enemy Ace/War Stories is so much better than his other stuff that its unreal, just a pity not as many people read them.

Dillon's art seems to have continually regressed the longer he's worked in america. The stuff he did for Judge Dredd and Rogue Trooper for 2000AD in the early/mid-80's was phenomenal.

The only real Dredd Artists that stick out for me are Ezquerra, and Brian Bolland. Although i am sure if I seen Dillon's work I would recognize it...it just seems so flat and lacking any sense of movement in 'Welcome back Frank'.
