Indubitable Issues and Pull List (04/13/16)

LOOKING FOR BOOKS TO BUY THIS WEEK?  

LOOK NO FURTHER.  

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

Yet, regardless of whatever else he might be churning out for the House of Ideas, Sam Humphries is at the top of his game for this series. He has maintained the framework of Aaron’s Weirdworld while repopulating it with his own protagonists. His variation on the ragtag band of questers is quite charming. Meanwhile, Mike del Mundo continues to deliver page after page of astonishing imagery that is always among the best on the racks. Readers who might have dismissed this series out of hand, would be well rewarded by giving it a closer look . . . “
