Hey Jeff, You going to pick up the SWAMP THING issues that crossover with ANIMAL MAN?

Ah - I didn't realize they were going to cross over.  Then the answer will be YES.   ;D

What issue does that start with?

I think it "crosses over" in issue 7 or maybe 8, but they are both working the same path to it (fighting "the Rot")  in issues 6

Flash Gordon: Zeitgeist #1 - Been looking forward to this, even though I'm incredibly jealous I'm not writing it.  And just $1 for the first issue!

O.M.A.C. #4 - Easily my favorite 52 title I've read.  No contest.

'68: Jungle Jim One Shot - I like the regular mini, I'll see how this goes.

While I greatly appreciate the art style and the basis for the story, Didio's writing is no-where close to to being anything I want to read.

We are far apart on this one, my man. Faaaaar apart.  ;D

Just pick up some old OMAC books or some KAMANDI and be all the better for it I say.

I understand that completely  ;D but if ever there was a writer to do it for it would be Snyder. Especially on anything horror/dark related. Ever read any of his AMERICAN VAMPIRE? If not, one year when your trade buying is low  ;), flip through vol 1 and see if you can resist buying it. Bet ya can't  :). Great stuff.

I still have barely scratched the surface of my last shipment and these are at the bottom of the stack.  And all the above should be here Monday.  Guess I know what I'll be doing over Christmas!

I will be totally surprised if you don't enjoy SWAMP THING more than ANIMAL MAN. I enjoy them both as they are heading on a great collision course, but ST is a much more solid book on its own. Can't wait to hear what you think.

(Of course, my issue 4's are not here yet)  >:(
