Jeff Lemire has been a relatively new addition to my regular “folks to look out for” list – his work on Animal Man for DC’s New 52 “reboot” was the first real exposure I’d had to his work….and soon after that I met him at Thought Bubble a few years ago. To hear he was working on this sci-fi series had me hyped at first…..and although I didn’t pre-order it at first……it’s on that list now.

I found this week a particularly good week for comics, with plenty of titles I wanted to read (and time permitting review). I’ll usually try my best to sort them into some kind of order, starting with what I think is the weakest and leaving the best till last. I got this week’s pile totally and utterly wrong. Slotting Punk Rock Jesus somewhere in the middle, it resulted in an earlier than expected comic high and made the books left in my pile much less enjoyable. That’s right – I’m angry that this comic was so good.

If yes, then take a look at Vertigo’s brand new ongoing book Saucer Country. Written by Paul Cornell, pencils and inks from Ryan Kelly and colours by Guilia Brusco the book has arrived with a huge amount on fanfare from a somewhat marginalised looking Vertigo. (more…)

While reading Spaceman #1, there’s three reasons you know you’re reading an Azzarello/Risso book. 1) The paper 2) The compelling story and world that they have created and 3) It’s totally fucking nuts!
