Tony McGee's comics were rather spiffing. I read them in bed last night and thoroughly enjoyed them. I think I marginally prefer Frontiers so far to Angel Nebula, as it seems more confident both in writing and art, which seems to me to be a nice mix of the styles of Richard Corben and Hayao Miyazaki.
I thoroughly recommend ordering some of Tony's comics.
