I've read the first Body Bags collection and really enjoyed it (it's a fun, fun read) despite the disturbing fact that the daughter is only 13 (or so) and drawn like some 20-something busty-busterson. I get around making myself feel like a total chester by pretending she's really 18. Regardless, Body Bags is a good read w/ some great, memorable characters and tons of rip-roarin' action (w/ great art!).

GØDLAND, VOL. 1: HELLO, COSMIC! TP

THIS IS HOW IT ALL BEGAN!
The cosmic superhero epic is back and this collection is chock-full of all the "cosmic" you could ask for! Everyone from THE JACK KIRBY COLLECTOR to ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY has sung the praises of GØDLAND, so if you missed out on any of the first six issues - including the ones which are now completely SOLD OUT -- this is your chance to experience the glory of Commander Adam Archer, the enigmatic alien Maxim, the wacky Basil Cronus, the evil Discordia, the confusing Freidrich Nickelhead… and that's just scratching the surface! If you want cosmic, we've got cosmic!

RETAILERS: TP GOES ON SALE THE SAME DAY AS GØDLAND #7! READERS CAN CATCH UP ON THIS CRITICALY ACCLAIMMED SERIES IN THE SAME WEEK!

Man i love Godland for some reason. Having a ton of fun w/ this book and can only believe it will be an even better read in trade format. What's really cool is they are releasing the collection of issues #1-6 on the SAME DAY that #7 comes out? How cool is that? You can completely catch up in one day (hint, hint to every other publisher).

written by ROBERT KIRKMAN

Collecting the status quo altering storyline "A DIFFERENT WORLD" running from issues 25-30. Mark is brought to another planet in order to save it. Is he their only hope - or the source of the worst disaster to ever befall them?

As long as Kirkman is putting these out i'll probably be buying them. Here's to hoping Invincible never, ever jumps the shark.

I'm recently back reading after a 15 year comics hiatus.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
