HUMAN TARGET

On Sunday, January 17th (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), FOX will preview the new TV series HUMAN TARGET-- a full-throttle action-drama centered on Christopher Chance (Mark Valley, Fringe), a unique private contractor hired to protect, based on the DC Comics character created by Len Wein and artist Carmine Infantino and reimagined for Vertigo by Peter Milligan (Shade the Changing Man, Skreemer, Greek Street, Hellblazer).

Hellblazer: The Cottage

Superstar cover painter, Simon Bisley has been cranking out gorgeous covers on HELLBLAZER, most recently on #256, 257, and 258. Well, along with the covers, he is also the interior illustrator of the upcoming issues #259 and #260! His style combines a unique realism with a graffiti edge. Just what you would expect from the drummer in a death metal band named Kaotika.

Check out these incredible pages from #259:

Blame The Killer Inside Me.

It’s spring of 1991 -- well, really winter since I was living in Ithaca, NY where it’s warm likes two weeks out of the year -- there was a big recession on, a war in Iraq, I was only working part-time (some things never change, right? jk) and I’m standing in an independent bookstore and this scary-ass face is staring back at me. It’s the cover to The Killer Inside Me by Jim Thompson. Never heard of him. But loved the jacket design (Day-Glo orange stripes with black type and a creepy black lizard on it) and so I picked it up.

Lot’s happened this week. Here's a roundup of those not to be missed.

LARGEHEARTED BOY posts Jeff Lemire's fantastic music playlist for THE NOBODY. In his introduction Jeff writes, “I've always preferred sad songs. They don't make me sad, they just make me "feel more." Now, that's something I can totally relate to. Check it out!

Taking it to the ‘STREET’

Just days away from publication and GREEK STREET has people (well, not just any people, some of the most renowned names in comic history) yelling its praises from the US and across the pond from London. Ah, London, the setting of GREEK STREET and all its glorious inhabitants.

“Sex, death, ambition, revenge and a reminder that some stories are too true and too dangerous to ever die. GREEK STREET crackles with Promethean fire.” —Grant Morrison
