Someone please explain Batman: Odyssey to Eric Reynolds: Fantagraphics’ Reynolds took to the publisher’s blog to ask “What the Hell is Going On Here?!” in a panel from Neal Adams’ current Batman limited series. Or, as Adams’ Bruce Wayne might say, “Um?”
Don’t forget Drawn and Quarterly!: As the end of the year nears and critics, bloggers and a whole lot of comics fans with Internet connections begin to think of the best comics they read during the past year in order to compile lists, D and Q provides a handy list of all the great comics they published during the last year. I personally haven’t been thinking about such things just yet, but Hicksville, Market Day, and Wilson sure were great, Make Me A Woman was a lot of fun, I always enjoy reading John Stanley comics, particularly when given D+Q’s slick production values, and man, I still have a lot of comics to catch up on…!
