From Enigma, this is one of my favourite sequences in comics. In terms of its use of word and image to deliver its effect, it’s vertiginous. 
(No pun intended. You just feel the world fall away here.)
I’m trying to work out a way to describe ENIGMA that doesn’t sound like faint praise. “Greatest Underappreciated Work in its genre” isn’t enough. A personal “Top 5 comics in its genre” is too mealy mouthed.
Of all the work that Vertigo put out in its nineties imperial phase, I think Enigma was the finest.

When Gillen is right, Gillen is right.
I already loved Peter Milligan by the time Enigma came out, but the combination of his words and Duncan Fegredo’s art was one of those moments in this reader’s life where my sense of what the medium could do expanded.

More from the great magazine sort-out…

In 1996, Neil Gaiman gave an interview to a magazine - that I think was only a one-off CBLDF publication - called Warped Reality. I thought it might be interesting for fans of the man to see it.

(I’ll probably try and sell this magazine later on - the Gaiman interview is the only standout thing in it - although I no longer have the free gift flexi disc!)

Available to download in .pdf here, or .cbr here, although the .cbr is better quality.

There’s a preview of the Beasts Of Burden one-shot, Neighborhood Watch over at Dark Horse’s website. It is by Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson.
You should go and read it, because it is swell. Even if you don’t usually read comics, but you like beautiful art, or cute things, or dogs or cats, or stupid chickens, you should take a look at this book.It is lovely, and it will make you smile.

This is a thing that I said. I can vouch for it.

Behold! Alan Moore! Cliff Richard! Shakin’ Stevens! Alvin Stardust! A Black Dog! TOGETHER AT LAST!
This is a photo of Alan Moore’s appearance on Get Fresh in 1987. It was recently published in Gary Spencer Millidge’s book Alan Moore: Storyteller.
Gary very kindly gave me permission to post a scan of it - and says that the photo originally came from Alan himself.

The eighties were so very, very odd.

Those fine folk over at Factor Fiction have collected a second edition of strips from their trailblazing The Girly Comic into a handy paperback volume. From the press release:

The Girly Comic Book 2 edited by Selina Lock
Another collection of stories culled from the pages of The Girly Comic, featuring the talents of industry professionals such as Kate Brown, Justine Shaw, Asia Alfasi, mpMann, Alec Worley and Laura Howell, veteran indy creators such as Lee “Inner City Pagan” Kennedy, Terry “Sleaze Castle” Wiley and Jeremy Dennis, alongside exciting new talents from the British Small Press and beyond.

I haven’t seen a copy yet, but my story, Remembrance - illustrated by the Eisner-nominated Justine Shaw - is included. The Girly Comic Book 2 is available from Lulu for £10, as is Book 1.

I think I’m also in this, with a two page story I wrote, drawn by the wonderfully talented and sadly departed Charley Spencer. There’s always loads of good stuff in The Girly Comic, so you should definitely check it out.

MOMBcast #142 

mombcast:

OH BY THE WAY MOMBcast #142 came out last Thursday. It’s awesome! Well, it’s okay. But we talk about comics, and James nearly dies WHILE WE’RE DOING THE SHOW. Which HAS to be a selling point.

Also, James struggles through one of his delightful Asterix spotlights. This time, Asterix And The Banquet!

Go! Listen! Give us feedback! Share!
