THIS WEEK’S STAFF PICKS

B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth: New World #4

B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth: New World #4
by Mike Mignola, John Arcudi and Guy Davis
Dark Horse Comics

Simon says: Arcudi, Davis and Mignola’s post-Plague of Frogs B.P.R.D. continues to be consistently excellent. There are more guns, monsters and explosions than ever before, but Arcudi manages to maintain the great characters moments that have made B.P.R.D. such a fantastic comic.

Knight and Squire 2

Knight and Squire #2
by Paul Cornell, Jimmy Broxton and Yanick Paquette
DC comics

Bobby says: The dark dimensional fold sensor have been going off and lead the knight and squire on a journey to Somerset where they plan to put an end to the occult thefts of the past few months. With a talking money to start it off and truly masterful disguise by the knight this issue keeps the cheese rolling!

Thunder agents #1

Thunder Agents #1
by Nick Spencer, Cafu and Bit
DC comics

Chris says: The fact that Nick Spencer was writing this was a big selling point. couple that with the fact it’s based on an old Wally Wood propery and I was sold. We’ll see where it goes from here, but issue #1 is a good solid read.

Forgetless TPB

Forgetless
by Nick Spencer, W. Scott Forbes and Jorge Coelho
Image Comics

Liz says: So a hypnotist, a youtube prankster, two teenage girl assassins and a sex-addict in koala bear suit walk into a nightclub… and that’s not the half of it! Every bit as fun as it sounds, this is one of my highest recommended books of 2010..

Tonoharu Vo.2 HC

Tonoharu Vol.2 HC
by Lars Martinson
Pliant Press

Camila says: This is the second in a three-volume graphic novel about a young American living in a small rural Japanese town. Sad and slightly uncomfortable at times, but with good amounts of black humour, Lars Martison’s semi-autobiographical chronicles of international alienation are absorbing and truly engaging. Exquisite artwork, beautifully put together in this hardcover edition. Well recommended!

The boys #48

Henry & Glenn Forever
by Igloo Tornado
Cantankerous Titles

Karl says: For anyone who is as fan of Black Flag, the Misfits or any of Glenn or Henry’s other work – this should cause a few evil chuckles. Also features Daryl Hall and John Oates as G+H’s satanist neighbours!
