    Ya know…usually I'd be ticked off at only two pages , for a weeks wait. NOT TODAY!!! AWWWW YEAH!!!! Thanks Mike. :-)

  2. Mike Gold says:

    Well, I'm a bit ticked off, actually. Sometimes the breaks fall in odd places and this time we had to make a tough choice based upon storybreaks and everybody's workload and Glenn's inability to never, ever get any sleep again. So anybody who IS ticked off has my sympathy and understanding. This will probably happen on one of our features or another every couple of months or so, I suspect. But we'd ALWAYS rather post more stuff than less.

    I can never get enough Grell. Plain and simple. My first comic was a SLSH back in 1976, drawn by Grell, and I've been hooked on his style ever since. As a teen, I found Jon Sable Freelance, and as I grew older and became a writer myself, I counted Grell's real world hero as one of my top inspirations. If only we could all create such a great, deep and well told character (and supporting cast too). It's been too long, and too far in between with Sable and Grell. I'm thrilled to see them back together as they should be. This is Grell's masterpiece, plain and simple. And I hope he sticks with Jon from now on. Should have never left, but I understand (and love what he did with a certain emerald archer). I love this character and love what Grell does with him. Now if only the rest of the world knew about it. I think this character translates across mediums. Would love to see it on film. And in 2003, I had a brief email exchange with Grell about adapting it to stage (I'm a playwright) which I am still game to do. And boy would it absolutely rock the theatre world to see a show like this live on stage. It can be done.In the meantime… please, oh please tell me when we will get to slap down some hard earned cash and hold this great new series in our hot little hands. Online is great, but it is nothing next to flipping actual pages. Keep up the ComicMix work. You guys are on the front edge of the next wave with this concept. Keep on keeping on.

    You know, for all the attention people like Adam Hughes and Joe Linsner and Frank Cho get for drawing comic book babes, I think Grell also deserves to be mentioned in the same breath. Wow can he draw a beautiful woman. I'd normally be disappointed in getting only 2 pages, but this week I can happily forget all about that. :)

    Har! Maggie may be the only woman in the world in this situation who will understand – in every way – when Jon says, "The diamond's gone!" and runs off. Though they do have me wondering if she was deliberately getting him out of the display room so that somebody could operate. I mean on the diamond in the display room.

    Well, the NSFW warning might partially apply to some of the previous installments as well. To be on the safe side, I decided not to read this at work any more. Fortunately or unfortunately, that got me a bit behind and I just caught up with the last 4 or so installments. The series is great so far and I'm looking forward to seeing how things progress from here. – Neil

    Siiiiiiggggghhhhh……., this is SOOOOOooooOOOOO why I love Maggie the Cat.Gosh Darn It!!!! Will you people get OFF your @$$e$ and bring back the series and finish it!!!!!I need more MAGGIE, and not just MAGGIE Q (from MI:III and Live free and Die Hard).

    • Mike Gold says:

      Maggie Q. I like that.I've said it before, and I'll proudly say it again: After Ashes of Eden, Mike's doing a swell new graphic novel written by the amazing Mark (Transformers) Ryan. After that… well, he's got another Jon Sable story in mind (I haven't heard the plot yet), but we have been talking about finishing off that Maggie story. So… If we get enough comments here at ComicMix asking, no, begging Mike… well, he wouldn't be so rude as to ignore your pleas, would he?

      • Glenn Hauman says:

        He's rude enough to ignore our pleas, and we pay him.Of course, he uses the money we pay him to buy ammo. So we cut him some slack.

        • Mike Gold says:

          And you accuse Mike of being rude? With all that ammo?

          • Glenn Hauman says:

            Well, I'm the last person who sees Mike's art before it hits print. So there's some mutually assured destruction balance of terror going on here.

  8. greyearthman says:

    Well, let's face it, Mike Grell has put it together again….even in just two pages this time !

  9. Tom Fitzpatrick says:

    Just so as long as you guys keep talking about it! ;-)And of course, a few more gratituous pages of Maggie, wouldn't hurt either. (I know, I'm bad).

    I don't usually see so many comments on a comic, so I clicked to come see, and then looked at the comic. She's a rather unrealistic woman, although the first (panel? pane? frame?) has the interesting juxtaposition of his face between her legs.

    • Mike Gold says:

      It worked for Mike Nichols and Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft. Mr. Grell has enormous respect for the classics.

      • Glenn Hauman says:

        And here I thought it was a tip of the hat to For Your Eyes Only.Marilee, Maggie is as unrealistic as, say, Grace Kelly in To Catch A Thief or any Bond girl.

        • Marilee J. Layman says:

          I saw small bits of Bond films when I was a kid. My dad liked to watch them. I think the only thing I've seen Grace Kelly in is Rear Window.

      • Marilee J. Layman says:

        Oh yes. I watched that a long time ago.

  11. Tom Fitzpatrick says:

    Of course, she's an unrealistic woman, she's a fantasy. All comics female characters is basically unrealistic.If they're any realistic, there's a good chance of having no readership or fan-base.Take Wonder Woman and Power Girl, which I find to be the most unrealistic characters, but find Selina Kyle (Catwoman) to be fairly believable. This list goes on and on.

    • Mike Gold says:

      It seems odd to me that we always get into these conversations about female characters (check out the old American Flagg letter columns!), but never about males. As though Wonder Woman and Power Girl were unrealistic, but Batman and Superman are… what, normal-looking? OK, Chaykin wanted Reuben Flagg to be the best endowed hero in comics (at the time), but I wouldn't mind looking like Clark or Bruce any day. Except for the cape thing. I'd trip.

      • Marilee J. Layman says:

        Yeah, I never buy clothes with ruffles or floaty bits. I get them caught on things.But I think there's a difference betwen realistic and normal. Normal is the middle of a range; realistic is something that exists.

        • Glenn Hauman says:

          We've got a guy who's an Olympic-level pentathlete and gun for hire who looks like a male model and writes children's books as a secret identity. I think the boat might have sailed on "realistic" a few tides back.
