I picked this up on a whim because it looked funny, and after I spotted the leading lady reading a Richard Castle novel on the first page, I knew it was my kinda story. Love the charm, art, and nerdy references. Trades of this series went on my wishlist.
Artifacts, Issue 0
Top Cow Productions
I already owned Mouse Guard, Fall 1152, but I grabbed this comic anyway. Not for Fraggle Rock, but to just drool over David Petersen's art and world. Everyone should give it more than a second glance.
The Sixth Gun, Issue 1
A comic set in the West (yes, capital W) with a supernatural twist - how could I not pick it up? It was lucky to snag it, it was gone fast at my first stop of the day. The Sixth Gun is a dangerous weapon that vanished after the Civil War. It's resurfaced though, and lots of people and creatures want it. A full issue, it still doesn't give away quite enough, but it works as I am curious enough to pick up the next issue when it continues in July.
Funny and fresh interpretations of classic fairy tales and nursery rhymes make me giggle and this preview of a hardcover book (it's an anthology with lots of contributors) does a damn fine job. I enjoyed all the recreations, and I was sad when I got the end. Entertaining and perfectly suitable for all ages. The book is out later this year.
You can read a little more about each of these comics and download previews by clicking on the cover art on this page.
