This week, I’ve picked up a relatively new and utterly enthralling book by one of my favourite comic writers of all time – Cemetery Beach, written by Warren Ellis (Transmetropolitan, Hellblazer and more recently Injection) and drawn by Jason Howard (Trees, The Astounding Wolf-Man).
This week I’ve picked up a comic that’s pushed all the right buttons and has hooked me from the first issue: volume one of the thriller-movie-in-a-comic-book powerhouse Crowded, written by Christopher Sebela (Injustice: Ground Zero, High Crimes) and drawn by the artistic team of Ro Stein and Ted Brandt (Captain Marvel, Raven the Pirate Princess).
This week, I’m diving back into the noir-driven crimescape that is Hell’s Kitchen, the home of the man without fear: Daredevil. I got my hands on a copy of volume 1 of the newly-minted Chip Zdarsky (Sex Criminals, Howard the Duck) run: Know Fear, and I have to say, after taking a break from newer Marvel titles, I am very impressed.
With the recent announcement that DC is closing their Vertigo imprint in 2020, I thought it would be appropriate to go back and look at one of the few major Vertigo titles I haven’t read – Shade, the Changing Man, written by Peter Milligan (Human Target, Hellblazer) and drawn by Chris Bachalo (Death: The High Cost of Living).
