Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
With the big hullabaloo that The Walking Dead #100 sold more copies than anything since Matthew and I were in grad school, it does make us wonder – Did people buy it and store it away, or did people actually read the issue before sealing it in Mylar?

Discussion:
Cow Boy
“Justice ain’t got no age.”
Nate Cosby (Pigs, Jim Henson’s The Storyteller) and Chris Eliopoulos (Franklin Richards, Misery Loves Sherman) present Cow Boy, the story of a young bounty hunter determined to send his entire outlaw family to jail. He travels the Old West on a horse that ain’t his and won’t stop ’til everyone’a his kin’s in the clink.
Also in this volume are short stories by the likes of Roger Langridge (The Muppet Show comic book), Brian Clevinger, and Scott Wegener (Atomic Robo), Mike Maihack (Cleopatra in Space), and Colleen Coover (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller).

    Hey, if you guys are looking for a genre book that isn’t made as often anymore, here’s my recommendation:

    Prophet by Brandon Graham being published by Image. Conan in space, a sprawling space epic, great world-building, smart story-telling, unexpected progressions, it all seems to hail-back to the old french science fiction books. Gorgeous, interesting and satisfying all my taste buds for exploration and sci-fi. Best book I’ve read in a long time, and the collected edition should come out in early august from Image: Prophet Vol.1 Remission
    (Also don’t be put off by the fact this was once a Liefeld book, it’s been completely reimagined.)
