Yep, just Nameless #5 this week.
What an issue!
It’s all backstory - we’re not really any further in unravelling what;s actually happening on Xibalba, but it was electrifying! The description of God was fantastic, and so incredibly dark and nihilistic. It was cool to see some backstory on the main character, and the last page was a bit of a twist.
I’m with you guys, Will and Dave, about Burnham’s art. Seeing all this acted out by his funny little grinning characters works far better than it sounds like it should.
Since that was all in my weekly pull list, I also picked up Shadowman Book 4 by Pete Milligan and Robert de la Torres. This is great, Milligan firing on all cylinders with a tormented hero, an interesting supporting cast and some very odd moral dilemmas. de la Torres’ art is stunning, the kind of photographic but stylised art that Phil Noto or even Sienkiewicz does (when he’s not freaking out).
Highly recommend this series to any other MIlligan fans out there. Start at #4, this is where Milligan starts writing, and its a good jumping on point. I knew nothing about the character and didn’t miss a beat.
