Invincible 10: Who's The Boss?

This is the book I've been waiting for since I started reading Invincible. Curtis turned me on to Invincible around the time the third trade was out and I've been hooked ever since. But this one... wow. If you're one of those people who think Robert Kirkman is overrated, this book is the evidence that you are wrong. The action is spectacular and truly kinetic. The characters continue to develop and change as the story progresses. The story is engaging and the dialogue is spot on. This is how a Superhero book is done.

Plus the title of every trade is the title of a sitcom while also relating to the events in the book. Genius!

If you're not reading Invincible, you should be. If you are, then you know exactly what I'm talking about.

20th Century Boys by Naoki Urasawa


I have no idea what's going on. One of those crazy "childhood friends have to reunite as adults to fight a malevolent force from their youth" kind of Stephen King stories. The story jumps around in time and it's fucking cool. 3 volumes of 22 are available in English so far. From Naoki Urasawa, author of Monster and Pluto. Get in on the ground floor, sucker!

Unwritten #2

I've been on the fence with Mike Carey. I've become concerned that he's kind of a one-trick pony. My fears were confirmed with the first issue of Unwritten. But since I like the guy, and I loved his work on Lucifer and Hellblazer, I decided to stick with it a little while longer. I'm glad I did. He breaks down hundreds of years of literary history in a matter of pages and it's somehow interesting whether you give a shit about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle or Charles Dickens or not. He's really up there with Neil Gaiman and Alan Moore in that respect. Weeeeeeee!
