The first time I read anything of Jeff Lemire’s was on DC’s New 52 reboot title Animal Man which turned out to be one of the best titles to come out of the while reboot – after that I wasn’t sure where to begin so when I spotted his latest release, The Underwater Welder, I thought I’d dive in….no pun intended….I swear!!
