Let’s see, here’s some stuff I’ve read recently:
Black Hammer Vol 1 - I’ve heard from multiple people that this is the best book on the stands, so I went in with high hopes. A couple of issues in, I found it too low key for such a designation, adjusted those hopes, and liked it quite a lot. I haven’t looked at Lemire’s influences but it reminds me a lot of Shirley Jackson’s novel “We Have Always Lived in the Castle.”
Moonshine Vol 1 - I know people disliked this book but I liked it quite a lot. I should mention that 100 Bullets is my favorite book ever (not counting stuff I read as a kid), so I’m obviously predisposed to like this creative team. My question is whether we get any more out of this run…I have my doubts.
Birthright Vol 1 - I gave this one up pretty early. The craft is pretty good. I admittedly can’t really get into sword-n-sorcery comics unless it’s older stuff like classic Conan, Elfquest, Kull the Conquerer, stuff like that. This one just isn’t for me.
