I was able to find a copy of Chew #2 at cover price today. Now I just need to find issue one at a reasonable price.

I can't believe the prices these are going for on ebay.

If you guys need a Locke & Key fix during it's hiatus try the new comic book that came out Wednesday called The Stuff Of Legend, it is awesome. It's about a group of unwanted toys trying to rescue their former child owner who was taken by the Boogeyman during World War II era America. The art is very very good. They are going for $15 on ebay right now. You won't be disappointed. Here's a linky dink to a preview and extras: http://www.bleedingcool.com/2009/07/30/is-stuff-of-legend-the-new-chew/

Both of my local comic shops were out of this title but I picked one up on the 'net for cover price plus shipping.

Congrats.
You'll see how similar The Boogeyman is to Dodge as he/she/it seduces a character to the darkside and then just outright murders another mere seconds after. Every Locke & Key fan should be reading this one. I so can't wait until ish #2.

Daytripper. I don't know where it's going (well I do have some idea) but I'm along for the ride.

Stumptown #1 and #2. Highly recommended.

by Greg Rucka & Matthew Southworth

Superstar writer Greg Rucka (Whiteout, Detective Comics) embarks on his first creator-owned series since the Eisner Award-winning Queen & Country! Dex is the proprietor of Stumptown Investigations, and a fairly talented P.I. Unfortunately, she's less adept at throwing dice than solving cases. Her recent streak has left her beyond broke -- she's into the Confederated Tribes of the Wind Coast for 18 large. But maybe Dex's luck is about to change. Sue-Lynne, head of the Wind Coast's casino operation, will clear Dex's debt if she can locate Sue-Lynne's missing granddaughter. But is this job Dex's way out of the hole or a shove down one much, much deeper?

BLACK HOLE, by Charles Burns, is a really weird story where mutations are used as a metaphor for adolescence angst and "poor social skills", for the lack of a better phrase. It's definitle an adult book (not for children, is what I wanna to say here) and it's quite dry and hard. Like a punch to the stomich you weren't expecting.

I don't know, man. I love Charles Burns art and I bought BLACK HOLE for the art alone, but the story isn't bad, it's just not an easy read for sure. I guess what I'm trying to say is: "it's not for everybody". But if you like unconvencional story, told by weird characters in a wacky atmosphere (with breathtaking beautiful art), go for it.

i highly recommend anything by the luna brothers. currently they are wrapping up their 24 issue arc on "the sword". it's a comic about a girl in a wheelchair named dara. one day three people break into her parent's house looking for a mystical sword. the entire comic is about revenge and it is excellent. it twists and turns and it's always good.

their earlier comics "ultra" and "girls" are both awesome reads.
