843-darkhorse_logo_1_largeBUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #29 CARNEVALE CVR
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #29 JEANTY CVR
EXURBIA TP
GRANDVILLE HC

Pete: I’m a neophyte Brian Talbot fan, but I’ve heard nothing but good stuff about his work. I was sold on this title when I saw a Giant anthropomorphic badge wielding a giant steampunkish gun while sporting a Sherlocke Holmes type hat. I’m a fairly easy to please guy.

I HEART CREEPY WMN T/S XL
SHAMAN WARRIOR TP VOL 08
STAR WARS INVASION #4
WITCHFINDER IN THE SERVICE OF ANGELS #4 (OF 5)
DCComicsLogo_1ARKHAM ASYLUM POKER SET
AUTHORITY #15
BALLAD OF A SHINIGAMI VOL 02
BATMAN AND ROBIN #1 4TH PTG
BATMAN AND ROBIN #5

Pete: I’ve said it before but it’s pretty hard to follow Frank Quitely as an artist.. Philip Tan is trying and he’s bringing  A game. There’s so much fun going on in this series, it doesn’t matter who the Red Hood is, it’s just more fun to see whoever it is playing dressup. Look at last issue, the Red Hood is having a tougher time getting the tone of his press release than he is killing bad guys.

David: I’m always happy to see the Red Hood make an appearance in Batman. He had a great introduction in Hush and the revelation that he really was Jason Todd brought back to life worked. The rage he felt at Batman not avenging him was justified.

JACK OF FABLES TP VOL 06 THE BIG BOOK OF WAR

Pete: Better than Fables? Yep it’s true. Fables sometimes feels bogged down by it’s huge cast of characters and sometimes too serious tone. (Not always, but there are times – especially with regards to the religion founded on Boy Blue that just seemed too ham fisted.) Either way, Jack is just a free for all, it doesn’t take itself seriously, it’s really just accepts what it is mindless entertainment.

David: Better than Fables? Sorry Pete, but it’s on now! That large ensemble cast is what makes Fables work for me. The jumble of every fable interacting with each other. But I will agree on that founding a religion based on Boy Blue. Hopefully he does come back for Rose Red though.
