    I am going to wait for vol. 6 before I read them through again. I forget what happens in the one I read the month before! LOL

    I read the first 5 and I was pleasantly surprised. I like how the focus shifts issue to issue on the 3 kids, Bode being my favorite, and I look forward to 6.

    I hate when writers reference Lovecraft though. Make up something yourself, don't crib.

    I've been seeing a bunch of these comics on eBay with 9.9 and 10 cgc grades. Very cool and very collectible ( not good for reading though ).

    You're better off collecting Pogs and Troll dolls, comics really don't make good investment collectibles anymore.

    Oh, I am going to have to politely disagree with that.
    Comics have been around forever and they will stay around, especially something like the DT comics - a cross collectible ( ie - collectible as both a comic and as a SK item ).

    I actually like it myself. I look at it more as a homage to him myself. Even his contemporaries did it and he encouraged it.

    I guess I've read too many things where Lovecraft is brought up. He just seems to be the go-to guy for establishing creepiness or horror.

    I enjoyed the William Gaines reference though.

    I haven't had a chance to see these yet so, I don't know it yet.


    Yeah, he kinda' is. In most cases though it's meant as a tribute to him. At some point in just about every horror writer's career they want to pay tribute to Lovecraft. He pretty much reinvented the genre and has influenced nearly every horror writer. Being a fan of horror since I was a kid I've seen many references to him too.

    Oops, sorry.

    I've recently re-read Gaiman's shorts "A Study in Emerald" and "Only the End of the World Again" which both heavily reference Lovecraft, so maybe I'm jaded. But it just seems like he's everywhere.

    I also liked Vonnegut's method of referencing writers who never existed and wish more writers would employ such tactics.

    It's cool! Nothing to be sorry for. Personally, I don't believe in spoilers at all. I could read the end on here and it would have no bearing on my enjoyment of the story if it's good.

    I think I've got a couple Gaiman shorts in anthologies with heavy Lovecraft references. They may possibly be the same ones. I'm not sure.

    Vonnegut was always an original....a brilliant writer.

    It was only a sign reading "William Gaines High School" or somesuch, not even a spoiler.

    I allow it with Gaiman though, he always satisfies.

    I miss Vonnegut terribly. I latched onto his work as a boy and was deeply saddened by his loss. Truly a genius, and my pick as the greatest "small" writer of the 20th century.

    I didn't even realize he was dead.

    Yeah, Gaiman's awesome!

    Ah, I see.

    I really need to pick these comics up.

    Yes, he passed away in April of last year.

    I'm nearly half-done with Gaiman's completed works. I want to read it all within the next 2 years.

    It's a good story, not the greatest comic I've ever read, but very competent, and possibly promising if Hill decides to ever do more.

    Thanks. Is there a reliable place to keep an eye on the release dates? I asked at the comic store and they said they never really know in advance either.

    I usually just check Joe's site. Joe or Gabriel keep us updated.

    Didn't know this series existed, but picked up the first five issues after hearing about it here. Very good story, told in a great fractured way that unfolds in an interesting way. I'm not the biggest fan of the artwork though...it's competent art...it's done very well, I just don't think it fits this book at all. The cartoonish/anime style undermines the horror aspect a lot for me.

    I didn't realize it was a miniseries, I figured it'd have to be...but just didn't know how many issues it might be told across. Seems like there's more story for one more issue, but we'll see how it works out soon...can't wait for the conclusion.

    I have a lot of catching up to do. Today I finally got issues #4 and #5. So no idea when #6 is going to be released? I'll try to read these two slowly.

    I see that there are now a couple eBays for issue #6. I checked Joe's website and have seen nothing about its release yet.

    I suppose the eBay items are presales...?
