Farewell Fear Agent – The End of an Era

December 13, 2011

Last month Fear Agent, one of my two favourite ongoing comics of the past few years ended (the other being The Boys).

For those of you that don’t know Fear Agent is an action-sci-fi-horror-pulp-esque space epic written by Rick Remender and illustrated by Tony Moore and Jerome Opena all of whom are badass. It tells the story of Heath Huston a drunkard, alien exterminator/bounty hunter and the last of the fear agents. He’s also from Texas and the luckiest ill fated cowboy ever to exist.

It has pretty much has everything anyone could ever want in life or comics (if you’re me anyhow). Things like time travel, space pirates, gladiatoral combat, zombies, giant robots of the stompy variety, ray guns, interdimensional jaunts, cowboys and plot twists galore. It does them well and nothing seems out of place.

This is my tribute to the ending of an era and a series I enjoyed very, very much. If you have’t read it, do so!


Have You Seen or Have You Heard?

Last night I found this gem stuck to a lamp post. Naturally I took it down to add to my collection of ‘cool’ things.

Obviously fake and as far as missing persons notices go, not very good as it doesn’t even provide us with a name. Unless of course her name is actually ‘Girlfriend’, in which case that would be quite odd.

I was tempted to call the number just to see who was on the other end but fear and laziness have held me back from undertaking that adventure. If you do, feel free to let me know how it goes.
