Also, CBR has preview up of Justice League of America 38, one page of which is attached:

Well... okay, then...
From the pages of DV8, an edgy spin-off of Gen 13 (hey, it's almost Halloween, things should be getting scary), some early work by Warren Ellis. Here, our anti-heroes try to buy some drinks.

runespoor7's post of Jason Todd talking to Mia Dearden led to a thread discussion about billionaire vigilantes beating up poor criminals.

A panel from THE AUTHORITY: TRANSFER OF POWER shows that at least a few comic creators are aware of this.

Full page, user quotes, and space for conversation after the cut. )

As you may have heard, Ex Machina is ending soon. As you'd expect, things are really starting to build to a head as the conclusion gets nearer and nearer.

Alan Moore speaks out on Blackest Night
He does. It's in his recent interview with Mania.com:

AM: That’s it. It’s the paucity of imagination. I was noticing that DC seems to have based one of its latest crossovers [Blackest Night] in Green Lantern based on a couple of eight-page stories that I did 25 or 30 years ago. I would have thought that would seem kind of desperate and humiliating, When I have said in interviews that it doesn’t look like the American comic book industry has had an idea of its own in the past 20 or 30 years, I was just being mean. I didn’t expect the companies concerned to more or less say, “Yeah, he’s right. Let’s see if we can find another one of his stories from 30 years ago to turn into some spectacular saga.” It’s tragic. The comics that I read as a kid that inspired me were full of ideas. They didn’t need some upstart from England to come over there and tell them how to do comics. They’d got plenty of ideas of their own. But these days, I increasingly get a sense of the comics industry going through my trashcan like raccoons in the dead of the night.

KA: [laughing]

AM: That’s a good image, isn’t it? They weren’t even particularly good ideas. For Christ’s sake, get some of your own ideas! It’s not that difficult. You used to be able to have them! I’ve also heard that, apparently, a fifth of the direct sales market in comics is my work—twenty percent! I’d imagine that the sales in places like Borders and the big book shops, which are increasingly where the bulk of the market is, it’s probably a higher percentage.

For legality, three pages from Volume 2 of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Gullivar Jones from Edwin Lester Arnold's Lieutenant Gullivar Jones: His Vacation meets up John Carter from Edgar Rice Burroughs's Barsoom novels to plot against the Martians from HG Wells's The War of the Worlds.

When Alan Moore was crap (Spawn/WildCATs, Part 2; Guest-starring Gen13)
The worst thing Alan Moore's ever written, I'm sure of it.

There's one scene in particular here that's in such bad taste, I don't have words.

X-MEN/WILDC.A.T.S: A look back at crossovers.
James Robinson is usually admired for his work on STARMAN. I appreciated his attempt to improve Rob Liefeld's CAPTAIN AMERICA series. But JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRY FOR JUSTICE has resulted in him falling out of favor. Here's one of his 90s works, with art by Adam Hughes.

Astro City 0.5 - "The Nearness of You"
Just because I wanted to, a few pages from one of my favorite bittersweet stories ever. This one gets me choked up no matter how many times I read it.

Into the Blue
The Real First Blue Lantern (not St. Walker!)

It occurred to me that I've seen a Blue Lantern before, one who looks a little bit like this guy...

Majestic in "The Big Chill"
Greetings True Believers! I wanted to share with you one of my favorite Alan Moore stories. Wildstorm Spotlight #1 starring Mr. Majestic at the end of the universe.

Mr. Majestic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Majestic) has always been one of my favorite Superman analogs and this is one of his best stories. It's about a group of gods and immortals at the end of time. Enjoy!

Ah, the good old days...
I have nothing to contribute to either Porn Week or Doom Week. My Ode to Emplate Post continues to be building slowly, as it my Jonothon Starsmore is a Dick to Women post.

So instead of any of that, I bring you three pages from DV8 #1 (Warren Ellis and Humberto Ramos).

And now, once again shall I do epic battle with the tags.
