yeah, I guess I do need to try it. Though the image of the superheroes flying out of the toilet coupled with my overall feelings on Preacher have kept me from reading it so far.

I do remember thinking his writing on Jack Kirby's Demon comic was very good and I thought it paired very well with John McCrea's art.

Amazon Prime Video just released Season 1 (I don't know if that will be the only season) of "The Boys." While the book is frequently better than the movie (or, in this case, comic better than TV show) it might be a way to try it out (if you have Prime).

I'll be passing on the Ennis Humble Bundle. Ennis has never really worked for me; I like superheroes too much to enjoy his decidedly cynical (and, imho, bitter) take on them.

For another couple of days there is a nice Open Road bundle. I'm probably gonna pick it up. I already own three of the books, but that still leaves 19 I don't...

Eh, I kinda agree with his feelings towards superheroes. I'm a comics reader still, but that's only because the '80's black and white explosion, Marvel's Epic Comics and then later DC's Vertigo helped me to see that comics don't have to feature guys in tights hitting guys in tights.

Speaking of non-superhero comics, the great indie publisher Fantagraphics is having a linewide sale through August 1. Between 50-60% off.

I'd recommend:
The Complete Peanuts
Love & Rockets
The Steve Ditko Archives
Usagi Yojimbo
