one year passes...
i just got "the chained coffin" cuz i saw it used for cheap (the other option was the john byrne one & i guess i'm glad i didn't go for that).

i like it! i think yeah it is a little light on the storytelling but the art is great & i really like the conceit of the stories being based on old folk tales and stuff.

(as far as the movie goes i loved the 1st half and then it went depressingly downhill)

(especially with that terrible "normal dude" character who joins the agency)

three weeks pass...
I read the Strange Places TPB, and "Third Wish" is sooo much better than I remember from the floppies! Did Mignola make radical revisions to "TW"? I don't remember being as affected by it before. Also: his mermaids are hott!~

"The Island" doesn't fare quite as well -- still too talky with an awkwardly abrupt deus ex machina resolution.

Wait, so is that it? Is it just over now?

Trying to wrap my head around all the main titles being collected in 6 volumes. This is a great deal. Been hesitant a long time but I'm probably going to spring for this. Four volumes for the main story and two for the short stories. Not sure all covers are included.

Some people are saying the binding is very weak though.

Comixology had a sale on the digital editions just before Christmas so I sprung for volumes 3 and 4 (which should cover the things I don't have in floppies). Art is great but the writing seems a bit muddled for these later stories - he's picking bits from everywhere, Norse stuff, Russian stuff, Irish stuff, mashing it all together.
