    Crazy!! I bought a long box full of various stuff from my LCS about 2 months ago and all but forgot about it until late last night when I got bored and cleaned my office/Comic Book apocalypse and searched through it.

    There I have Impaler Issues 1 2 and 3 on the Image line.

    So damn it, I’ll have to check this out.

    Yeah, I have the graphic novel. I just sold it on Ebay for like 25 cents.

    This looks awesome. Impaler came out initially when I got back into comics and loved the first 3 issues … never knowing what happened to the series. I’m ecstatic that Top Cow has picked it up, I have long sung this book’s praises.

    If only Andrew Cosby would pick up the Damn Nation story again … but I guess he’s busy at BOOM!
