HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.Cosmo’s Recommendations … Beast Of Burden (One Shot)
“Evan Dorkin & Jill Thompson’s stellar series about dogs and cats protecting their town from paranormal threats is back with a one-shot tale. Do you like horror, adorable animals and/or beautiful art? Then What the Cat Dragged In definitely needs to be on your pull list . . . “
“Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning’s cosmic run is one of the best things to come out of the House of Ideas these past 15 years. Marvel is collecting the heart of that run (their Guardians of the Galaxy series) together in one volume. You also get their outstanding Thanos Imperative series which provides the emotional climax to the whole endeavor. An omnibus that will be well worth it . . . “
Tyler’s Recommendations… Black Widow #3
“If you’re a fan of great comics–which you should be–you’re already picking this up, but I just wanted to gush about Chris Samnee a bit, because I’m still miffed he got no love from the Eisners. Samnee, along with colorist Matt Wilson put down some of the best sequential storytelling every issue. From layout, to panel progression, to color palette, it just doesn’t get better. I’m also very much digging the story they’re setting up with Natasha, it’s Bourne meets Bond, and I can’t wait to see where this team takes it.”
Rebels TP Vol. 1
“Brian Wood and Andrea Mutti’s tale of frontiersman turned revolutionary soldiers, fighting a very organized British army is fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed every issue, and recommend it to anyone who digs historical/war comics. Wood focuses on the average men and women, caught up in a time of individual strife and sacrifice for the betterment of this country and future generations. It’s a story well worth your time.” Dean’s Recommendation… Gotham Central Omnibus
