Gonna ring in the New Year with this rowdy bunch:
- The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys #6 (Dark Horse): Polishes off the weirdly sedate series from Gerard Way and Becky Cloonan.
- Dead Boy Detectives #1 (DC/Vertigo): “From the pages of The Sandman” is enough for me.
- Clone #13 (Image): Plenty of creators–even some on critically acclaimed books–should do themselves a favor and clone the pacing and page turns of this exciting series.
- The Manhattan Projects #17 (Image): Still Hickman’s best.
- Rocket Girl #3 (Image): #2 was pretty good, but I’m not too sure I need stick with it. I’ll give it another go before I say no, though.
- Sin Boldly (Image): Joe Linsner disappointed with his most recent effort and didn’t help matters with his issue-ending, ill-advised rant. Surprised it didn’t dawn on him: the only characters who should be assassinated in a comic book are comic book characters.
- Death Sentence #4 (Titan): Irresistibly irreverent, indecent, incorrigible–it’s rock ‘n roll, baby; you know: live fast, die young, and leave a good looking corpse, and all that. Oh, and it’s also very, very good.
- Rachel Rising #22 (Abstract Studio): Easily one of our favorite titles of 2013. Can’t wait to see how Jet/James takes to her/his latest predicament–and how Terry Moore delivers it.
What are you looking forward to tomorrow?
