Haven't got it yet, though I've read the preview in latest Hammerhead. And I absolutely adore the artwork which is very climatic.

Unfortunately I haven't read it yet - just the preview in latest issue of Eidolon. Can't wait.

Latest issue of Eidolon is Ellis' best. It's action packed, but there are also some good dialogues. For the first time I'm impressed with some of Master's artwork. I'm not sure what to think of the interrogation scene, though. Looking forward to reading final chapters.

Hammerhead looks promising. Love the drawings.

In Topic: Horowitz to write second Bond novel.

Although I wasn't particularly pleased with Trigger Mortis; it was a fun but somewhat flawed read, I'm glad Horowitz will write another one.

I'd be more pleased if he was offered a contract for more than just one novel. Maybe we wouldn't have to wait two or three years for another one.

Finally got round to reading 9 - Really good! Eidion is really outstripping Vargr in both scrpting and artwork.

In scripting - definitely. Eidolon is much better read than VARGR. Artwork? Not sure. There are some really solid panels (top of the last page for example). But I still have same reservations about his drawings. Especially with facial expressions. Take a look at page 20, where Bond shoots a bad guy. Is it a smile? A grin? Expression of fierceness? Not sure. Maybe it's just a trifle, but in my opinion it's a shortcoming.
I've finished reading Batman: Hush lately and I noted I have no such problem with Jim Lee's drawings. Every panel, every character and every facial expression were self-explanatory.
