Another dispatch from the Addison Recorder, wherein Steph and I look back at some of the new #1 comic book issues that were released in late September through October. I learned very quickly that a lot of books have problems with a #1 issue — they spend so much time with setup, introductions, and exposition that the issue is usually over just as you get into it. That said, I was very pleasantly surprised by the new mini-series Butterfly, from Archaia. My favorite of the month.
I’ve been rather busy over at the Addison Recorder. Yesterday, Steph and I kicked off our biweekly column about comic books & graphic novels. Our inaugural discussion centered around Rat Queens, a terrific series that everybody needs to read. Seriously. Read it.
Over at the Addison Recorder, Bean invites me to assist with his weekly NCAA football pick ’em. I make a lot of references to the Punic Wars, he adds a lot of gifs from the Hannibal TV series. We’re serious prognosticators, don’t ya know.
