Wednesday's New Things: The Force Awakens

Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen by Dylan Horrocks
Dylan Horrocks's Hicksville is one of the great comic books of all time, a book that doesn't star a super hero and yet maybe one of the great books about super heroes (and the fan favorite artists who make them) of all time. Sam Zabel, which is set in the same universe, has been serialized online and you could read it there. But Horrocks is a master, and I have a feeling that this the kind of book--itself a beautiful object-- you'll want to keep on your shelf.  

Henshin by Ken Niimura
Henshin is a collection of short stories by I Kill Giants artist Ken Niimura, who focuses on a story's turn-- that moment when everything changes. I was curious, but not particularly intrigued, until I read this story, which was affecting without being sentimental. 

Star Wars #1, written by Jason Aaron, Art by John Cassaday

This is by far the most interesting comic coming out this week, no offense meant to some of the other stuff coming out, which is bound to be better. More tomorrow.

S.H.I.E.L.D #2, written by Mark Waid, art by Humberto Ramos
I want to like this comic. I really do. I like the tv series that it's based on. But the first issue was atrocious, poorly written and poorly executed, and the cover price was an absolutely batshit $4.99. No thanks. Preview here, if you're more interested than I am.
