Been getting into Mike Hammer stories recently due to my father, and a character that is based off Mike's hot secretary out for vengeance is kinda cool.
I'm more of a Philip Marlowe guy myself, but I have a Ms. Tree story laying around the house somewhere.
I should probably give it a read.
Ms tree was cool! one of the few non-spandex wearing crowd comics i bought and i'm with you Wes! along the lines of crime Noir!i am also a Phillip Marlowe guy!
I absolutely LOVE the movie from the 60s, it probably ranks #1 in my "Most awesome movies nobody has ever heard of" list.
I'd love to read the comics but I don't think they're available in English. Shame.
Yeah, I heard there was a lot of great French comics in the 60's. Pushed the envelope to the extreme. Made those horror comics from back then look like the Smurfs.
All I'm familiar with from Image Characters beside Spawn (alright cartoon imo) and Savage Dragon (stupid cartoon) are Chris Giarruso's G-Man (funny serious comic) and something I'm incredibly vaguely familiar with; Bomb Queen (Queen of crime, big @$# and busty boobs)
Never knew that has a movie, I know I saw some clips of the animated series, nothing to tell me anything about
Yeah, Italian horror maestro Mario Bava made a movie in the 60s:
Pure Pop perfection.
Prophet is the latest take on the old Liefeld character from the 90s.
It's not really my thing but I've heard it's really good.
Kinda looks like an X-Wing pilot.
Haha, he totally does, yeah! Lucas should sue.
Actually, Lucas has enough money these days so nobody tell him.
I think I'll check this Prophet out. Image has been kickin' ass lately. Way better than most of anything the big two are putting out.
I completely agree.
It's like Image is to comic books what AMC is to tv these days.
That is an apt analogy my friend.
He reminds me of Kaneda from AKIRA as well.
While we're talking about similarities, he also looks like another Image character Casanova Quinn:
Who, of course, looks just like Mick Jagger:
Ha! holy s**t he does.
Great character by the way.
Fraction's pretty Mehtastic but if he's ever done anything well it was Casanova Quinn.
Yeah, I started reading it recently.
It should come with a warning label for readers who can't handle too much Awesomeness.
Looks like the pilot of Grandizer
So what with yesterday's Sin City 2 casting news, I thought it might be timely today to use:
I've only read the first four Sin City books but I think he's probably the most relatable character to the average reader.
Y'know, ignoring the whole 'Jumping off rooftops/double-fisted gunplay' thing...
He's that cat with the red shoes right?
The red chucks and the floppy hair, yeah. Clive Owen played him in the movie.
