This series had my attention before I saw that Before Watchmen debuted yesterday. Image Comics has released a magazine. Basically, the two comics features are at the front (American Muscle, then Triggergirl 6) then the interviews, essays, etc. I didn't like that format. Someone could still do the "five minute read" then skip all the words. Maybe readers will see the Gaiman interview or see the real-life cosplay babe in the Triggergirl costume.

The stories: AM is post-apocalyptic and having survivors roaming to a new destination. TG6 is about an operative carrying out a mission. TG6 has an action sequence involving our heroine and airplanes. IMO, both stories aren't great in the art or plot department in some ways, but I want to see where these stories go next month.

I appreciated the effort to bring us a magazine, but the magazine format needs tweaks. The non-comics stuff should've been spread out. The page design varies from feature to feature. Maybe page design experts would complain, but I read so many EGM and GamePro mags from the 90s that it didn't bother me.

He was very well loved by his fans and will be missed sorely. Cheers to you, Mr. Rigney. Your work entertained many and you brought to life an amazing story. Prayers and condolences go out to Harriet and Wilson and the rest of the clan.
