Saga #1

W - Brian K Vaughan  A - Fiona Staples

Planet vs Moon.  Weirdo humanoids.  War torn travels.  Secret map!

I thought this comic was pretty awesome.  The dialogue is frank and modern, the art is well suited to the story. That Fiona gal draws real pretty.  I'm interested in seeing the story take us on a trip that brings us to our narrator in a current time. 

3 horns out of 5 wings.

Stuff I read this week.

Saucer Country #1:  Meh. It might be ok, but politicians and aliens didn't really hook me.

Dominique Laveau Voodoo Child #1:  I don't think I'm going to like it, but I'll try one more issue.

Conan the Barbarian #2:  Hubba hubba!  Still bitchin good.

Fairest #1:  It has personality and pretty sweet art, I'll give it a go.

Murky World one-shot

W/A - Richard Corben

Wow.  What a perfect, weird little story.  This shit rules.


Prophet #21

W - Brandon Graham       A - Simon Roy

Alright!  I'm not gonna lie and say I was excited about it, or even thought it was a good idea to revive dead 90s characters from Image.  I read Glory, it was decent.  Prophet already looks like a badass on the cover.  It's great!  I feel like I could've understood the whole story even without words.  The visuals are awesome.  The textures are gross (in a good way).  My personal favorite moments?  The vagina-faced contact, a shared food moment with the Dolmantle, and the awesome map at the end.

5 out of 5 crazy looking, mutant animals.

Something has certainly changed for the better.
