Like everything, this looked a lot cooler in my head.

Merry Christmas.

482. Saint of Killers

482. Saint of Killers

So, I’m guessing the Preacher tv show will not be having The Saint of Killers as a character. Sad, but not too upsetting. So, I figured I’d make a doodle. A doodle. A doodle of The Saint of Killers. Doodle.

424. Spider, man

424. Spider, man

If only Hunter S. Thompson was still alive and/or Spider Jerusalem was real. I think either would be having a massive field day with the current election. But no one would be listening anyway. Transmetropolitan is another Top 10 comic series for me. Also the only series I own with an issue 1 signed by …

I should go back and follow up on Sweet Tooth at some point.

419. The Corinthian

419. The Corinthian

I think I’ve talked about how I’ve only read the first 20 issues of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman multiple times, right? If I haven’t, well, there you go.

So basically, like Angel, with a lot more drugs, booze, sex, murder, and a more ridiculous Irish first name.

326 – Transmetropolitan

326 – Transmetropolitan

I love Transmetropolitan. It’s one of the few long-run series that I’ve read multiple times in its entirety (Preacher, The Invisibles and Shade the Changing Man being the others). A few years back we had a pretty bad winter where it seemed to continuously snow for weeks on end. One morning, sound asleep, I wake …
