Fantastic. It really is the art that makes the story, heck with the current trend of gloomy anti-heroes. Oh this art is sooo good.
Believe it or not, Mike, I haven't sat down and read a comic in some 35 years, so I'LL just take your word on current trends, but your initial point is always valid for me--art before dialog and/or plot (in fact, I would be just fine with wordless comics). Haven't told you, but I dig yer current profile pic--young Arnold as Conan was pure genius on many levels
