Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E. #10 by Warren Ellis, art by Stuart Immonen
This struck a little close to home, to tell the truth.
Great sequence by and J.H. Williams III (with colors by Jose Villarrubia) from Warren Ellis’ Desolation Jones #5, published by DC Comics, March 2006.
Yeaaah… Desolation Jones is messed up in too many ways to count. Gorgeous and dark and so, so screwed up.
Desolation Jones is an amazing comic by Warren Ellis. Unfortunately you can only buy volume one of the series because it was cancelled before they had enough for volume 2. A series by Warren Ellis that involves a crazy british man with grey skin and yellow eyes got cancelled for no reason. It makes me sad.
Ehhhh, not so much cancelled as Ellis putting the second volume on hiatus to give the artist a chance to get ahead on issues so they could release on a monthly schedule, but it never quite happened. Not sure whether Ellis moved onto other things, the artist did, or a combination of both. Whatever the case, it was intended as a deliberate pause rather than a cancellation, but sadly it killed the book. Ellis has now said it’s never likely to return, alas. A damn shame.
"I am not "your Katya", for God’s sake."
"But— But I care—"
"You care? Right! If you cared, you’d never have left me for someone else. If you cared, you’d let me grow up and be myself. If you cared, you’d never have hurt someone— Oh, God. Just look at you.”
Always reblog. Even if Kitty is way too forgiving in this scene, there’s some (but sadly all too brief) good stuff about how unhealthy and terrible the Shadowcat/Colossus ‘romance’ is. *Puttup!*
