    Thanks guys, I am glad to know some others like them too. I threw some pics (admittedly shitty ones, but best I could do) of them up in the Kirby thread, for anyone who might not be familiar with this era of comic art.
    Definitely! Loved is better, and deserves to be continued on in that vein.

    That is crazy that the estate did not try and work through a proper auction house, or offer these to a reputable group. I find it odd, but I guess the family/executors might have already separated out key portions, but maybe not, and the were just not too bothered over a lifetime of curated collectibles. Sort of sad. But hopefully the stuff went to good homes and will be continue to be enjoyed in a new life.

    Take that, Comic Cons across North America!

    Did we have a thread for the corporeal departure of Mr. Thompson here? Boo on us, the man was amazing!

    A little something it took me 23 years to discover:

    The Ramones covering Tom Waits in Eightball-land?

    OK.

    Just got a copy of Shaky Kane's Good News Bible, a complete collection of his shorts from the alternative UK comic, Deadline.

    Huge pages of non-glossy paper to whiff and inhale, Kirby rekonstrukted via William Burrough's perverse line of superheroic funnies. Pretty excited to dive into this later tonight

    Deadline was an absolute must when i was younger. Great comics and great indie music coverage etc,
    and obviously 'Tank Girl', which was so ahead of its time it was amazing!

    It was a very special publication. I still have an old stack of them somewhere . . .

    For some childish reasons, I keep flashing back on what's happening in Houston, mirroring events from BPRD's Hell on earth - Kinda scary.

    Yep, got the first tpb cheap and liked it quite a bit. Haven't read any more than that though.

    ^^ Yep, and then Alan Moore took the character and turned it into one of my favourite comics series ever.
    If i had to choose, it would be up there with my favourite Moore stuff of all time . . . .

    More stuff that happened in the real world that I had no idea about, #97,843:

    Commissioned for a show that happened earlier this year in, no surprise, Seattle:

    Jim Woodring: The Pig Went Down to the Harbor at Sunrise and Wept

    Pleasing stuff, right? All the more stunning once you know the scale of the works, and, indeed, of a certain tool that was utilized in their execution...

    ^ That is one large writing implement.

    Very sad news to hear about the passing of Len Wein. A giant in the industry for what he has contributed to the overall cultural ethos of comics, even if he might not have the name recognition among the general populace as some of his contemporaries. Naturally Swamp Thing is an obvious milestone to point to, but for me personally he will always be so exceptional for what he helped to do with the Uncanny team. It's tough to lose such brilliant creatives from the world. RIP.
