Ah, Northlanders I am very familiar with; I bought volume 1 and was greatly pleased that I did. Feel free to mention to him that he made a real fan out of me and that I look forward to when he finishes up volume 2 (I hate collecting monthlies because I have to hunt for back issues and worry about ruining collector's value).

While I know what you're stating about the genre, it was the audience I was thinking of though. I definitely know what you're stating though, as I've gotten somewhat tired to the whole superhero genre unless it's trying to push something different. The last closest superhero thing I actively collect (or collected, at this point) is Ennis' old Punisher series, and he's starting to get on my nerves with his unabashed preaching through the violent nature of a jaded vindicator.

Hey, as long as the audiences start to expand beyond the usual comic book groupies coming in, I'm happy: it means public acceptance of an understated medium.

Edit: I clicked that article and was frightened to recognize James Kochalka. Not because I'm familiar with his art, but because I know his music far, far, too well.

I lived in burlington for four years, so James Kochalka is a fav of mine.
