The thought of new Scarlet (again) scared me when I saw it peeking from the new comics. We live in a crazy world, huh?


I should have Dark Knight III #4 Collector’s Edition waiting for me. Looks like my shop might be having a special anniversary sale too.

I’m curious what you think of this. I backed it on Kickstarter. Supposedly, the book I have covers issues #1 & #2. I met Ha at C2E2 and he seems very excited about the book.

I had a peak using the ‘look inside’ option on Comixology, but Waid’s recommendation on the pretty cover sealed it. Will let you know what I think - have you read the first couple of issues?

Yes. I quite like the story. The hardcover I have from the Kickstarter is a bit like a French bande dessinee album in format and length. So it leaves off right when things are getting ready to really kick off. I’m curious to pick up issue #3 and see where it goes.


Cool, looking fwd to it.

I just looked at the preview on ComiXology. I need to check my book at home but I don’t remember that sequence being in what I have.

It looks like the first issue of @mattgarvey1981’s The Adventures of Cordelia Swift is live on ComiXology today too!

Love the logo, Matt.


Congratulations Matt! :slight_smile:


Me too. This and Scarlet #9.


Hey fella,

Thanks for the compliments and for letting me know!
Comixology didn’t even let me know?! :laughing:


I bought it. Hope I wasn’t the first or last purchase.

I like your work and want to see more of it. I felt like this is the best way to support it due to the exorbitant cost of shipping across the pond.

The support is appreciated, buddy.
Sorry about the shipping costs :tired_face:

I really enjoyed this. I’ve avoided reading any of the press on it, as I like to be surprised and not know what’s coming - and I’m not quite sure what everyone is going to fall out about this time round.

It seems Bendis has laid down a few different threads that could lead to the big fallout, or maybe all of them.

It’s well written, and unmistakably Bendis like. Focus on a few likeable characters we don’t get to see an awful lot of which was also a positive. Bendis is great at getting under the skin of his cast and making them more 3 dimensional and that’s certainly the case here.

I’m keen to read more.

Rhodey for President!!

Scarlet #9 was a little disappointing, with not a huge amount really happening despite this being the penultimate issue. It feels like the fire has gone out of this series a little bit in the long gap between issues #7 and #8. I had been hoping for something special from this book after the first few issues impressed me so much, but - aside from Maleev’s lovely art - there’s not a lot that’s memorable or interesting about this issue. (Unless you like Bendis’ trademark interrogation sequences, complete with the usual double-page-spread layout for no apparent reason, other than to annoy digital readers.)
