The Latest and Mostly Greatest #47 by Dan

The Shadow #1

Oh boy, the Professor and I have agreed that there has been a ton of stuff worth talking about lately and limited internet space to post about it!

The Shadow #1 Writer: Garth Ennis Artist: Aaron Campbell At times violent, at times dark, and at times funny, this new iteration of the Shadow hits all the style you’d expect from a Garth Ennis comic.

Fables #112 — Writer: Bill Willingham;  Pencils: Mark Buckingham;  Inks: Steve Leialoha, Andrew Pepoy and Dan Green In a week that’s a holiday gift to readers — after what’s turned into a great year for comics, there were at least a dozen noteworthy ones just this Wednesday — Fables gets first position this week because it’s a Christmas story, of sorts. While we check in with most of the current subplots (but not the one involving Bufkin, Willingham leaving his fate, literally, hanging), the main thread involves Rose Red and a story about hope, taking its structure from A Christmas … Continue reading
