      Hmmmm…. might be Alley Oop Park, a.k.a. Alley Oop Fantasy Land, at Iraan, Texas. Haven't visited there, myself, but the site sounds like a likely prospect.

    If I were Lone Justice, the first bullet knocks the gun out of Scion's hand and the next bullet kneecaps that SOB! Maybe poor Octavius only had one bullet.I like that Jean's first instinct is to get to McDuff and warn the city. I like the shot of Gottmögen, he's one of my favorite characters and I don't know why. Maybe because he reminds me of Nickola Tesla.BTW, I'm really looking forward to the release of "Frankenstein's Mobster" in print from IDW. I already own an edition of "Hammer of the Gods." So I probably won't get that. But, I might put "Hammer" on my Christmas wish list.

    It all boils down to the fact that you just can't risk killing a guy when you still have to ask him a question.I'm looking forward to FRANKENSTEIN MOBSTER too. Y'know – a lot of people make the mistake of calling it "Frankenstein's Mobster" – but it really is FRANKENSTEIN MOBSTER – actually the first volume in a series that has taken waaaaaay too long to get going. But MJ Butler and I are hard at work writing the next epic horror adventure right now.HAMMER OF THE GODS: MORTAL ENEMY will have additional features (not extensive – but some nice new art from Mike Oeming) and it will be much better printed than the Image version. IDW is getting very impressive print quality. I know that creators are about the only people to get worked up over these things – but for some reason Image printed their version with huge halftone dots that tend to give the book an "old comics" look to my eye. Also – dare I say it – the IDW version could very well be typo free. We have excellent proofing on all the IDW books.

      Huh. You are right. I need to proof my comments a bit. But I wonder, if you called the story "The Frankenstein Mobster," it would still make sense and fewer people would make the mistake. There are definite advantages to using "the" definite article. But you would not only have to change the Logo, but reprint a bunch of books too. So "Frankenstein Mobster" it is! It's too bad Amazon won't have this until November. I would think Halloween would make for monster sales on "Frankenstein Mobster."
