Probably the most fun book of the Weirdoverse line (which also had The Book of Fate, Nightforce and Challengers of the Unknown). Written by Len Kaminski, it featured a rock band of monsters touring and finding troubles along the way.
Len had the cool idea of hiring a band (out of his own pocket) to record a song - acting as the fictional band. The recording would be a bootleg of Scare Tactics, and it would be given away to members of a proposed Scare Tactics Fan Club - the project never came to be, but the recording can be heard here.
Maybe with the right timing, it could have been a great DC franchise - it sure is a perfect fit for an animated series.

Ectokid is centered around 14-year-old Dextor Mungo, whose father was a ghost. Dex, as he is called, sees the world as it normally is through his right eye, but through his left he can see into the Ectosphere, a dimension similar to Earth but with a number of crucial differences. All the regular-Earth buildings are in the same places, but have a crusted and coral-covered appearance, and this world is populated by creatures and races out of myths, legends and nightmares.
As Barker described, “Ectokid, which is perhaps the second weirdest of the bunch, is a kind of dream story for the 15-year-old that’s still alive to me — the tale of an adolescent who lives in two worlds and has access to a whole other sphere of reality”.
Ectokid ran nine issues (Sept. 1993 - May 1994) before being discontinued with the rest of the Razorline titles. The art for all nine issues was by penciller Steve Skroce and inker Bob Dvorak. The writing was split between James Robinson (issues #1-3) and Larry Wachowski (issues #3-9), future co-creator of The Matrix film trilogy. Although uncredited, Wachowski’s brother and filmmaking partner Andy Wachowski co-wrote with him.
Though carrying the Comics Code seal, Ectokid and the other Razorline titles were often racked with horror and unrated comics, a factor that entered into the imprint’s demise. A subsequent one-shot, Ektokid Unleashed (Oct. 1994), was written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, with artwork by penciler Hector Gomez and inker John Strangeland. It included a prose short story starring another Razorline character, Saint Sinner, written by Elaine Lee.

If you ask me, the talent set alone is enough of a reason to put out a trade.

I don’t think anyone brought this up, but it is a collection of a Vertigo mini that first came out 6 years ago, so I’m sure someone was waiting on it!

Return to the crawling dark of Mnemovore in this first-ever collected edition of the groundbreaking 2005 horror series! Kaley Markowic is a world-class snowboarder, shattered by a calamitous accident. In the struggle to reassemble her mind, she encounters a monstrous, ancient predator hidden outside of normal human perception. Standing by and watching it devour everyone and everything she’s ever cared about is not an option… but fighting it might prove to be even worse. By Ray Fawkes (Possessions, The Apocalipstix), Hans Rodionoff (Lovecraft, Man-Thing: Whatever Knows Fear), and Mike Huddleston (The Coffin, Deep Sleeper).” (via Midtown Comics)

Anonymous asked: <p>Are there any mini&#8217;s from Marvel or DC that you would like to see released as a trade? Personally I want Marvel to put out the Typhoid Mary mini from Ann Nocenti from the early/mid 90&#8217;s. I own the 1st 3 issues and it&#8217;s fantastic. Plus it seems Nocenti has the best grasp on the character which isn&#8217;t shocking as she&#8217;s the one who created her in the first place. I&#8217;d also really LOVE to see DC release Gail Simone&#8217;s Rose and Thorn mini sometime in the near future. I&#8217;ve heard good things about it, I&#8217;ve yet to read a story from Gail that I didn&#8217;t like, I like the characters dealing with multiple personalities, and I&#8217;ve no idea where to get the issues of the series as single issues, at least not in it&#8217;s completion.</p>

I can’t really answer about Marvel, but I would buy the Typhoid Mary mini - I’ve heard very good things about it. I’d like to see Rose and Thorn get traded. You can probably buy single issues on line. Off hand I’m drawing a blank on minis. But I’d like to see the Suicide Squad get completely traded - the Oracle issues are only available in floppy. Also the rest of the Dixon BoP run should be in trades. And the rest of the Huntress back-ups with Helena Wayne would be great. One that’s been on my list forever is Chase which is finally coming out in a trade at the end of the year.

Well!  Someone was asking for collections of Donna Barr&#8217;s The Desert Peach, when it turns out she&#8217;s already producing them via Lulu.com!  You can get them in print or digital!

I&#8217;m probably a million years behind here, but it looks like Houchen Bindery, the purchaser of comics-binders&#8217; favorite Library Binding, has up their own comics binding page.  It does not seem that they received all of LB&#8217;s cover dies, but with graphic covers like these, who needs embossed covers?
I absolutely plan on putting together my Cloak and Dagger issues into nice hardcovers like this, not to mention an all-Steph Brown book I plan on titling &#8220;Girl Wonder&#8221;!  Now if only I had money&#8230;

The licensed Hitchhiker&#8217;s Guide to the Galaxy adaptations by John Carnell, Steve Leialoha, Shepard Hendrix, Neil Vokes, and John Nyberg.
Each of the three novels was adapted into three prestige-format issues, but only Hitchhiker&#8217;s Guide was collected into trade.  If DC still has the rights to them, it&#8217;d be great if they could put them back out (however, I suspect that Disney, having done the movie, has any other adaptation rights.  So Marvel needs to get the rights and do this)
