Your eyes are not deceiving you.
- The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys #5 (Dark Horse): I’ve enjoyed the series so far. I’m not exactly sure why. Hey! Maybe that’s why!
- Sandman: Overture #1 (DC/Vertigo): Neil Gaiman on words and J.H. Williams on images: a dream match-up. If you’re not excited about this, there’s something wrong with you. Or maybe you’re too young to have a clue.
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #27 (IDW): Took me ’til my forties to take to the Turtles. A big reason: Mateus Santolouco’s martial art. Not sure, however, if I’ll keep on after “City Fall,” however.
- Wild Blue Yonder #3 (IDW): We loved #1 and #2! Seems a pretty safe bet we’ll love this one, too. Zach Howard’s art alone is worth the price of admission.
- Saga #15 (Image): So many smart touches in #14. So many, in fact, that we celebrated it as our #2 book of September. One thing we know about this issue: it’s kicking off with a full tank of gas.
- X-Men: Battle of the Atom #2 (Marvel): Somewhere, my future self is shaking my future head. Sorry–in advance.
- The Fox #1 (Archie/Red Circle): If you’re keeping track, then you know that this’ll be my second–that’s right: second–Archie Comics purchase in the past month. With names like Mark Waid and Dean Haspiel attached to this one, I’d be a fool to pass it up.
Yup, that’s it! And, you know what? Thank God.
What are you looking forward to tomorrow?
