Busy day with customers, so it’s another shorter week!
Whispers #2: The subtlety in the faces in this book makes the conversational, close-in nature of most of this issue’s action really work. New supernatural elements are introduced; we’ll see if the main character’s narcissism and anxiety block him from understanding.
Grimm Fairy Tales: April Fool’s Special: Boy this book just 100% says what I’m thinking and I loved that.
Flex Mentallo; Man of Muscle Mystery HC: Back in print, so I can finally read it! It’s fascinating to see both how little and how much Frank Quitely’s art has changed, and I can’t help but feel like I’m reading some predecessor to Sea Guy (and to a MUCH lesser extent The Filth), but with much, much less surrealism. The Hero of the Beach will always be there for you!
