Kick Ass #2 - this was very good; as strong a second issue as the first. The journey from self- serving to altruistic superhero was a little cliche, but done with so much polish, it was never less than entertaining. Great book. Already up there with my favourite Millar work, I think, ever.
Moonshine #8 - my reaction last issue was pretty much “WTF?!”. This time round I got into the rhythm pretty quickly. I’m still a little hazy on who’s who, and how this connects back to the first arc; but, Azzarello and Risso delivered a great issue, and an ominous cliffhanger for the next.
Gideon Falls #1 - Chris gave this book a glowing review somewhere up thread, and there’s not much I can add that will convince you to give this book a try, if you are still on the fence. It wears its Lovecraftian influences in plain view for all to see, setting up an intriguing new city, mystery and primary cast from almost the very first page. Similar to the other creative teams on the titles above, Lemire and Sorrentino are wonderfully in sync with each other, and are producing something that could become pretty amazing in time. I look forward to seeing more as the series develops. Dave Stewart is on colours and does his usual bang up job too.
