Mara #3: We knew this was coming, but still…yeek! I get the feeling things are going to get quite nasty come next issue. Another strong installment.
Age of Apocalypse #13: Picked this up solely for the X-Terminaton lead-in. That was a poor decision. There are some stories where I just can’t get past the premise, and AOA’s “Let’s travel to a dimension where the bigots were right!” is one of ‘em. Four pages of fake Nightcrawler won’t change that.
Lost Vegas #1 - My brain is humming and my eyes are salivating. This one’s going on the pull. If you like a side of sci-fi caper/heist with your visual feasts, this is a book well worth checking out.
Fairy Quest: Outlaws #2 - I got the first issue free, so I figured I might as well see where the second one was going. Meh. Given that the premise is that Fairy Tale characters are rebelling against their set-in-stone roles, I was hoping that there would be some more self-awareness regarding how far these saccharine-sanitized depictions of the characters deviate from some of their oft-gruesome cautionary roots. But it looks like they’re playing it straight, so no thanks. This is some of Ramos’ strongest art in a long time, though, IMO.
Helheim #1 - …well, that’s a novel way to treat your male lead. I’ll try not to get attached to anyone. Looks like we may be staring down the barrel of a witch vs viking vs witch vs zombie throw-down. I think that’s worth showing up for next month, yes.
