Year of the Artist, Day 261: Milo Manara, Part 5 – L’odyssée de Giuseppe Bergman

urbanbergmanbk24004 (2)

Every day this year, I will be examining the artwork on a single comic book story. Today’s artist is Milo Manara, and the story is L’odissea di Bergman/L’odyssée de Giuseppe Bergman (Bergman’s Odyssey), which was published in 2004 (I can’t find where it originally appeared, but it was published in both France and Italy). These scans are from The Manara Library volume 5, which was published by Dark Horse and is cover dated June 2013. Enjoy! (For the last time – at least with regard to Manara – I have to place a Not Safe For Work warning here.)

Sunday brunch: Links for the week of 16-22 June 2013

I took last week off and almost thought I was going to take this week off – you might notice I haven’t posted here in over a week, because I’ve just been uninspired recently, even though I’m in the middle of my latest Comics You Should Own, which are usually fun to write. But then I decided to get going, mainly because of the two big stories in the comics world this week, so let’s check out some links, shall we?

Trade paperbacks, older editions, and miscellaneous for February AND March 2013

ChannelEvil (2)

Last month, I didn’t get a chance to finish all of these before I went to the convention in Seattle, and then I was busy when I got back. So this month, we get a double dose of trades and books I’ve read and such. That means this is really long, and I apologize for that!

Trade paperbacks, older editions, and miscellaneous for January 2012

As I’m getting more and more things in trade these days and many of those don’t come out very quickly, I often miss titles that everyone is raving about for my year-end lists (see: Daredevil). So I’ve decided to do a post every month about the various trade paperbacks I got in the month. I’ve also included editions of things that may be from an earlier year but which I didn’t get until now or which have been re-released, and some other stuff, too. I’m still going to review new graphic novels individually, but this is for anything that doesn’t fall into that category. Sound good? Great. Let’s check some stuff out!
