L’Shanah Tovah!


  1. 1. Awwwww, CC…
    2. Bogdanove is the f***ing best.
    3. I recently found something in the fifth pic you’ve posted (that in which Franklin awakes from his nightmare). Look carefully at Ben’s poster: it’s said that he’s gonna fight vs. “Vicki Glo…”. Good comic fans know that Vicki Glori is a female wrestler, aunt of Maggie, one of the “Locas” of Jaime Hernandez’s “Love & Rockets”. As I said before: Bogdanove is the f***ing best.

  2. The page with Susan accusing Doom is actually funnier when you imagine him nonchalantly having a manicure like I firsty did.

  3. This is a late comment, but I have a weird memory of this series. I remember running across this when I was looking through my mom’s comic collection and those covers catching my eye. It was like they actually told their own story, which is something I’ve never seen in a comic before or since. I never actually read it though cause I wasn’t sure if they could live up to the cover.

    1. Even later comment!! I read this when it came out and being British it’s a bit of a rarity… by some coincidence I was reading it whilst The Wizard of Oz was on in the background and noticed that the courtyard/ramparts at the top of Dooms castle is in fact copied directly from a longshot at the top if the Witch’s castle… it amused me…

  4. Those covers! I remember discovering this series in back issue drawers years ago and buying them purely on the basis of those covers. Not as apocalyptic as I was expecting them to be, but still very enjoyable.
