Inspired by Warren Ellis' appearance in Powers, today sees Brian Bendis appear in Image comic Nailbiter.

Nice stencil detail. Brian Bendis pops up in Nailbiter, though as you can see, his nails are very nicely trimmed. While Bryan Hitch shows that you can do huge action scenes in comics with very human reactions, without anyone actually having to be raped, courtesy of Real Heroes.    In Green Arrow, even though the back pages have lost[...]

Like in Nailbiter #2. But Black Bat goes for the Black Box option. But, as ever, you need a Garth Ennis on hand for Caliban #3 to show everyone how it's done. Adventure Time FlipSide flips even further Diabetes is still a problem though. While Big Trouble In Litle China is as sensitive on the matter of finding East Asian[...]
