@billy_batson: I had heard both were ending. But if the Essentials thing isn't true the Masterworks line ending may not be either.

Amazon has a used vol.5 hardcover starting at $20. I just heard Marvel is abandoning the Masterworks line. So buy up whatever you can now. Also price check at sites like Cheapgraphicnovels.com or Instocktrades.com. They might be cheaper.
Growing up it was mostly American slasher stuff like Texas Chainsaw, Phantasm, Puppet Master. Also gross out stuff like Toxic Avenger, Street Trash or Bloodsucking Freaks. Later I got into all the European stuff that Fulci and Argento did. I think stuff like Opera and Gates of Hell still hold up really well. I guess I'd consider myself more a fan of European horror.
I remember this being announced like two years ago. Glad to see it finally coming out. I've been a big fan of Fialkov's creator owned work for years so I'll definitely be checking this out. $2.99 price point for this new line at Dynamite is pretty sweet too.
@thewalkingdeadpool18: Superheroes are the Big Two's bread and butter. On top of that they've been at it for the better part of a century so it makes sense that they'd be the best at it. But that's not to downplay other companies superhero books. Captain Marvel out sold Superman in his heyday. The cast of Charlton characters were also very popular. Nowadays Valiant's line of books have a strong following. I just read Paul Pope's Battling Boy, which was a great all ages superhero comic. Even these revamped golden age characters in Project Superpowers are pretty great. Give em a chance, you may dig em.
Whoa...this could be awesome. I read Project Superpowers back when it launched. Enjoyed a lot of the characters but felt the story was lacking. Having Warren Ellis on board could certainly rectify that.
