Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles #6
Mark Russel (w) Mike Feehan (a)
DC Comics

Joe says: The conclusion to DC’s most recent update of a Hanna Barbera character and whilst I’m not particularly familiar with the original iteration, I thoroughly enjoyed this mini-series. From the nuanced humour to the social commentary to the depth of character, this was a perfectly balanced series and this issue was no exception – dark at times but also funny and uplifting. Mark Russell can do no wrong in my eyes.

The Red Hook Volume 1: New Brooklyn
Dean Haspiel
Image Comics

Will says: The Red Hook is a super thief of Brooklyn, who after an encounter with the super hero, The Green Point, is bequeathed the Omni-Fist of Altruism, forcing him into a life of heroism. Quite literally. If he performs a bad deed, he will feel pain!

Hitting the beats of all classic superhero comics we’ve grown to love, The Red Hook is full of witty quips, gorgeous art and is just a bundle of fun.
