A few weeks back when I did my list of comic series I'd like to see more of, one of the titles noted both in the comments section and by one of my fellow bloggers was DC's Thriller. Robert Loren Fleming and Trevor Von Eeden created the series, which lasted 12 issues -- the last four were by a different creative team, writer Bill DuBay and artist Alex Niño. I remember buying the first few issues, but I was too young to really get it at the time. I was probably wondering when Batman was going to show up, especially since I was shelling out $1.25 for each direct market only issue.
In any event, if you're interested in learning more about the title, which a lot of people really liked, check out Michel Fiffe's post on the title. It includes not only commentary on the comic itself, but also some of the back story behind the offbeat title.
BTW, the guy in the panels up top? That was Scabbard, and he really kinda freaked me out when I was a kid.
