    @beige Not really. Superhero stuff kind of falls outside of my interest area but I’m not averse to checking it out. Is Jon the fan? If so, that dude has mad taste in comics so I’d definitely take a look.

    I’m pretty intimidated by all of this strategy talk and wish I had something to contribute. Much like my fellow Bearded Justice buddy, I’ll stick with the slow stuff as my reflexes have never been suited towards twitch play. I’m looking forward to Squad matches in Civ V, for sure.

    I tried Borderlands last night and didn’t really care for the controls. The necessity for me to put my reticle on anything I want to pick up before I can do it really bites the wienie. The music’s pretty chill and the humor suits the world well. Too bad the controls are a deal breaker.

    I’m going to be renting Blur on the 360 so that my son and I can have more multi-player options. If it has the “blue shell” problem, it’s getting kicked right out of the house.

    Morning, fellows.

    @RocGaude Hope you enjoy Space Rangers 2! In regards to Euro comics/graphic novel artists, an unconventional recommendation from my childhood would be anything by Raymond Briggs. You probably know his work from “The Snowman”, but “Fungus the Bogeyman”, “When the Wind Blows” and “The Tin Pot Foreign General and the Old Iron Woman” are as much thought-provoking adult ruminations on a whole range of issues…as well as being fascinating books for kids around your little fellow’s age. They’re sort of comic-storybook mash-ups. I’ll try and think of some more.

    @unmanneddrone In good time, my friend. My focus right now is to finish school and grab some gainful employment. A big comic project is in my sights for this year which I’ll surely pimp when there’s something to see.

    As for the Euro comics, I have no idea. I just read Sky Doll recently and while the writing and story wasn’t my thing, the artwork was pretty fantastic. I’ve always been interested in the comic scene in Europe as I understand that comics are viewed as a valid form of entertainment and art. If you have any tips on where I can locate said material, please share it with us (of me, at least).

    @RocGaude Forget those other comics, I want more Whittington “sequential art”! Any word on Enki Bilal or other Euro comic artist’s work going digital? It’d be great to get more Bilal work out there…it’s so damn romantic! The man in his studio: http://bit.ly/a05MdH

    On to some comics news — this is a big deal:

    I also got a auction notification today for the entire stock of Torpedo Comics (the online comic store owned by John Dolmayan, drummer for System of a Down).

    A total coincidence for sure but an interesting sign of the future (which I’m very excited for).
