UMBRELLA ACADEMY TP VOL 02 DALLAS 

Pete: Okay, volume two is without a doubt one of the most kinetic series to come out since Morrison’ Doom Patrol. If you haven’t checked out this series because it’s written by the lead singer of My Chemical Romance… you really should give it another chance.

David: I agree, this series is amazingly good. I almost didn’t pick up this series based on the My Chemical Romance association, but I am glad I picked it up.
USAGI YOJIMBO #123

DC COMICS
ABSOLUTE PROMETHEA HC VOL 01

PETE: Okay, this is how the series is …it starts off amazing, great art, interesting premise… gets a little weird, amazing art …then it’s about Kabbalah, amazing art…. then it’s back to being awesome, amazing art. So while Alan Moore does some weird stuff, the JH Williams art is just beautiful.
ASTRO CITY ASTRA SPECIAL #1 (OF 2)
BATMAN THE BLACK GLOVE TP

PETE: As with Promethea… Williams’ art is gorgeous.. I’m always a little sad that he wasn’t able to stay on for Batman R.I.P
BATMAN THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD #9
BATMAN WIDENING GYRE #2 (OF 6)

David: I have to admit that I am a huge fan of all the Kevin Smith comic stuff. Widening Gyre may not fit neatly into the current DC universe, but the strong writing makes up for it. He did a great job on writing Etrigan’s dialogue in the first issue and he’s a character that’s really hard to write correctly.

David: As much as I would like to say that I read this series solely for the Dini writing…no, I just like the cheesecake Guillem March art!
