Marcelo Frusin: Loveless #1 (2005) Cover Comic Book Art | Comic Books 27 OCT 2012

Eisner award-winning writer Brian Azzarello returned to DC in 2005 with his gritty western Loveless, which has been described as a cross between the bloody action and atmosphere of a Sergio Leone film, and the provocative storytelling of HBO’s Deadwood.

From DC: “Wes Cutter is a wanted man running from a violent past – the horrors of the Civil War, a brutal stint in a Union prison camp, and the savage fallout of Reconstruction. Now he’s on a quest for the one thing in short supply: peace. Joining Wes is his beautiful wife Ruth, a woman who has been to hell and back herself – and hides dark secrets of her own. The road they travel will be a bloody one, leaving a trail of bodies stretching from Missouri to the Pacific Ocean.”

Artist Marcelo Frusin of Hellblazer acclaim handles the artwork for the book, but before we even got a glimpse of the interior art, we were floored by this absolutely stellar, fully painted piece of cover art for issue 1!

Screenshot Saturday: Trigun (Episode 10) Anime 29 MAY 2010

Screenshot Saturday time once again, and this time we dig out the history books, going all the way back to June 1998 to pick out on the classic action comedy sci-fi western, Trigun, featuring everyone’s favourite rogue gunman: Vash the Stampede!

Back to back, this has got to be the stupidest way to fight ever invented!

Episode 10, entitled “Quick Draw”, sees Vash and the fairly new character Nicholas D. Wolfwood find themselves drawn into a terrible quick draw event in order to free the current town they were passing through. And although Vash is pretty successful at stopping the various contestants from hurting one another thanks to some ingenious and sneaky action, there is no stopping the fact that soon Vash and Wolfwood will find themselves in the thick of things!

Point in case, one of Vash’s first deadly opponents is a man who appear to have the ability to shoot behind his back!

However, even when taken by surprise, Vash the Stampede’s legendary cat-like reflexes are enough to see him bound out the way and return fire, revealing his opponent’s deadly secret!

(Talk about a cheap shot!)

Oi, is a man's elbow meant to be able to bend back that way?

Now if that isn't cheating, then I don't know what is! :P
