Steve Replogle

1. Stephen Bissette's Tyrant (only four issues)
2. The Original Big Bang mini-series from Cailber Press that never resolved the cliff-hanger from Issue #4 ( with the modern "Round Table of America" ).
3. Dark Horse seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (they are now on Season 10, their third).
4. Barry Windsor-Smith hardcovers from Fantagraphics related to the magnificent BWS: Storyteller project. So far, Fantagraphics has published three: Young Gods and Friends, The Freebooters, and Adastra in Africa. The fourth and (probably last), centered around Paradoxman, has not yet been released - it's been ten years. I'm still hoping, though!
5. DenSaga by Richard Corben - four amazing issues in the early NIneties, and the story left so far uncompleted. Corben is still making masterpieces, though, as with his recent Rat God form Dark Horse.
