Saga #1: The art is solid and sells the fantastic visuals of the story well, which is doubly good because so far the story is kickin’. Robots, fairies, goat men and war IN SPAAAAACE, I’m stoked. It sounds silly here, but in execution Brian K. Vaughn is doing a very good job of building worlds and characters.
Nancy in Hell: On Earth #2: I can’t help it, she’s a 1980s scream queen with a chainsaw. The comedy, gore and cheesecake of this title makes it just like the baconweave of comics – so bad for you, so hard to look away from.
The Strange Talent of Luther Strode #6: There will be a follow-up series later this year! Huzzah!
Womanthology HC: So many people worked on this book, and so many people funded it on Kickstarter. It’s amazing considering just that, but it’s also a big, fantastic hardcover. There’s too much here for me to comment on it in specific; it will gladly devour small chunks of your time because there’s 320 pages of shorts.
Crime Does Not Pay Archives HC: Pre-Comics Code nastiness! See all the violence and moral panic! Own a piece of comics history!
