The Wicked West (Image Comics)

I had been looking forward to this book for quite some time and I wasn't disappointed at all. The story is a horror western about a drifter who has a run in with vampires, after taking a local teaching job, in a small town called Javer's Tanks. The artwork is excellent and so is the writing.

Another thing I liked about this GN was the price. If I remember right I got it for about $7.50 after a discount and it must retail for around $10. That is a pretty good price for a book that is over 100 pages. I'm really looking forward to any new GNs that are released detailing the "adventures" of the main character, Cotton Coleridge. The GN is by Todd Livingston, Robert Tinnell, Neil Vokes, Scott Keating and was published by Image Comics. Check it out!

Halloween 2004

For some reason, I just wasn't in the mood this year. It kinda ticked Kristi
off cuz she says its the only thing we have in common. ;) We did catch the
5hr special on Bravo which counted down the 100 scariest movies of all time.
First was given to "Jaws"; second to "Alien" and third to "The Exorcist." I
guess I pretty much agree with their choices overall. I do think that "The
Exorcist" should have been #2. Personally, its my #1 but a lot more people
have seen "Jaws" so that has to be taken into account.

Since it rained not a lot of kids showed up and I didn't spend much time handing out candy. Kristi (dressed as a witch) handed out candy with a co-worker who came over dressed as an Orc. I walked up and down our subdivision following a few groups of kids in my Michael Myers costume. I only made a couple kids cry though, muuuhahahah!! I'm a pretty big dude so I sell it pretty well ;)


I finally caught up on all the Hellblazer issues. I think I'm pretty much addicted to that comic book for good. :) I picked up a complete set of Sandman TPBs and a complete set of Lucifer TPBs as well. Once I'm done with those I'll probably try to read all the Volumes of Swamp Thing. I don't know why I like Vertigo so dang much.
