This is what is known in Sarah’s life as a Good Comics Week. Not a Great Comics Week, which would include Scalped and DMZ. But a Good Comics Week brings me Northlanders and Doktor Sleepless, as well as Warren Ellis’s new steampunk-looking miniseries, Ignition City. Also Young Liars, which I am finally caught up on, and which may be the most disturbing yet compelling comic I’ve ever read. It makes me feel icky when I’m done reading an issue, and yet I compulsively want to read more.
Popgun vol. 3 hits this week, too, and budget permitting, I want it.
Since I mentioned Scalped, how good was last week’s issue? Jason Aaron simply will not allow me to hate his characters. Each time I think I’ve found one I can despise, he cracks open their skull and lets me see inside and I find pieces of me staring me in the eye.
So I just don’t know if I even need anything else. But recommendations are always welcome.
