by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
Wow! The depths of Brian K. Vaughan’s mind must be a very scary place. He can write incredibly touching and heartwarming stuff and a page later write something incredibly disturbing. What is so wonderful about Saga is that Fiona Staples can actually keep up with them, and deliver the most bizarre and amazing creatures to grace a comic page. This issue of Saga gives us some further insight into one of the Freelancers hunting our heroes, while Vaughan also explores Marko’s past a little. Vaughan and Staples are crafting something truly special with Saga, and if you aren’t on board yet, you really should be. Most stores are starting to get 2nd, 3rd, or 4th printings of the first 3 issues, so now is a great time to pick them up, and read what will most likely be the comic series of the year.
by Brian Azzarello, Tony Akins, Kano, and Dan Green
This book is awesome. Wonder Woman is tough, smart, and kicks some serious butt. Brian Azzarello has crafted an interesting and exquisitely intricate plot involving the Gods, and Princess Diana is stuck right in the middle of it all. Art duties in this issue are shared by Kano and Tony Akins, but the transition is seamless, and the action scenes are perfectly paced and wonderfully epic. The highlight of this book continues to be the new take on the classic Greek Gods, and Hades has quickly become my favorite. Pick up this book if you like to see Wonder Woman kick butt in a fashionably gothic wedding dress, if you love creepy kids with flaming candle heads, or if you just like awesome comics.
