BOOK OF THE WEEK
|W: Ed Brubaker W: Sean Phillips|
This book has been my favorite book that I have read all year. This story is so dark and twisted yet fascinating in a way that you can't stop reading and you can't wait to see what happens. Initially I thought that the twist was going to be that the guy is just crazy and there is no supernatural element to it, but I no longer think that. This is a must read for anyone.
|W: Brian Wood A: Mack Chater|
This book reminds me a little bit of Sheltered, which I really enjoyed. An interesting dynamic is formed here between how Briggs Land was run and how Grace would like to run it now. She has shown herself to be a capable leader, but does have her own sense of justice and that is not as harsh as it was, which may lead to her downfall or at least lead to problems down the road. With her sons behind her she should be able to keep the Briggs Land train chugging along, but lets she what old man in charge has to say about that.

This is another fantastic book, whereas this one is dark it is splashed with a slight humor as well. Set in the 60's where this housewife is secretly one of the best hired killers money can buy. This book shows perfectly the problems of trying to balance a home life with a secret life. If you like James Bond or Mad Men this is a book that you need to catch up on.
|W: Mark Millar A: Greg Capullo|
The first issue was amazing with a ton of world building and endless possibilities. Capullo is great and I could have swore I saw Bruce Wayne's twin in the first issue. Millar with Capullo is a great combo that I never knew I wanted.
|W: Jeff Lemire A: Andrea Sorrentino|
This has been my favorite book at Marvel since it has been launched. I love the dark violent nature of this Wolverine and how it expands on the past of the original Old Man Logan story or I guess it could be considered the future, but you know what I mean.
Hit me up in the comments if you disagree or I missed one of your favorite books.
