THIS WEEK’S STAFF PICKS

machete 0

Machete #0
by Robert Rodriguez, Aaron Kaufman and Stuart Sayger
IDW

Sharon says: Picked up Machete as I have been so excited about the upcoming b-movie film. A bloody (crazed looking) cop fighting to lay bodies to rest.

action comics

Action Comics #893
by Paul Cornell, Nick Spencer, Sean Chen and Wayne Faucher
DC Comics

Tom says: How superhero (or villain) comics should be written, fun and smart. It’s always good to see a monkey drink a human brain.

the last unicorn #4

The Last Unicorn #4
by Peter S. Beagle, Peter Gillis, Renae De Liz and Frank Stockton
IDW

Liz says: A pivotal chapter in the adaptation of Peter S. Beagle’s superb fantasy novel, also featuring an interview with the author.

casanova luxuria #3

Casanova Luxuria #3
by Matt Fraction, Gabriel Ba, Fabio Moon
Marvel Comics

Taylor says: Recoloured, so tat Ba’s artwork can really shine, this is the best, most worthwhile reprint I’ve seen. Fraction’s plotting is intricate and frantic, and his characters, especially with the new ink job, are full of likeable. True sci-fi and intrigue for the 21st centruy. I’d forgotten how great it is.

green arrow #4

Green Arrow #4
by J. T Krul, Diogenes Neves, Vincente Cifuentes, Mauro Cascioli
DC Comics

Chris says: It’s slim pickings, but with Action Comics taken, I’ve opted for GA as my pick this week. Although not a great issue, the run has been very good so far and seems to plant the seeds (pun intended) for Swamp Thing’s return.
