Leaders of Men

I don't have a lot in me at the moment, so here's some old-school Joy Division, one of my favorite tracks from the Warsaw days.

31 Days of Halloween:

1) When Evil Lurks/VHS 85/Adam Chaplin
2)Tales From the Crypt Ssn 1, Ep 6 "Collection Complete"
3) VHS


Here's what's waiting for me when I finally make it into a comic shop:

I still haven't started this series yet, so I will inevitably wait for all five issues to come out before I read. That kind of sucks, but the fact is this had a crazy low print run, thus my problems acquiring issue one (which I still don't have, hence why I haven't started it).

Finally: Apocalypse!!! I have no idea where this is going to lead; I'd originally expected old En Sabbah Nur to show up in X-Men: Red, where his wife is waging war on Storm and her people. Having him show up here has me questioning a lot of what I thought was going on. 

Daniel Warren Johnson doing a new Transformers comic that takes place in Robert Kirkman's Energon Universe? No way I'd miss this. I'm pretty selective with what I acknowledge, let alone spend time/money on as far as The Transformers; the only books I've read are the original Marvel comic and the Simon Furman continuation of that about ten years ago, Regeneration. Movie-wise, it's just 86 and the cartoons that predated it. Nothing else, so the fact that this ties into that world - or at least as far as I think I understand this Energon Universe - is a pretty big selling point. Of course DWJ at the helm is the other.

We finally get to see more of what Orchis is doing to Scott. There was a time I would have welcomed his torture, but call me crazy, Cyclops has actually become a pretty solid character in the post-Hickman continuity. I love how all the characters I found the least interesting or downright annoying are now stalwarts of my interest.
