Enjoyed Ellis’ James Bond comic. Definitely feels more like the novel’s version than the films though it’s not that important a difference.
Picked up issues 1-5 of Grant Morrison’s NAMELESS. It compares poorly to Alan Moore’s Lovecraftian saga at AVATAR (The Courtyard, Neonomicon and Providence so far along with an older self-contained story Yuggoth Cultures), but it does compare. Not set explicitly in the Cthulhu Mythos, it is definitely cosmic horror playing with some dark Gnostic/Aryan pseudomythology/occultism. It starts out like PROMETHEUS or EVENT HORIZON (or as one character puts it - “The Exorcist” meets “Apollo 13” which is essentially EVENT HORIZON) and then, like most of Morrison’s independent work, dives right off the rails in the 4th issue and becomes a version of Richard Matheson’s THE HAUNTING OF HELL HOUSE. Morrison’s technique of using incomprehensibility to express chaos is pretty ineffective as far as telling a story, but if you read it twice and then one more time slowly, it does offer quite a few nicely horrific ideas and moments.
Burnham’s work is pretty good in this, but the art does seem to be a bit too much not-quite Quitely.
