It's that time again!
This week I have a tie between Saga #20 and Outcast #1.
He who is certain he knows the ending of things when he is only beginning them is either extremely wise or extremely foolish; no matter which is true, he is certainly an unhappy man, for he has put a knife in the heart of wonder.
It's Saga, because: Saga. Right behind it is Dream Police, which continues to be excellent.
Mercenary Sea, sadly, takes Bottom of The Stack. Again. If it weren't for the sticker in the second issue, and my completionist nature, i'd have dropped it long ago; instead i'll finish out the arc next month and be relieved to be rid of it (and probably then try and sell the lot for whatever I can get for it, which makes me sad). I like the art, but I can't bring myself to care about the characters in the slightest, and the ONE thing I needed it NOT to do, make the story revolve around WWII, it can't seem to stay away from. The lost island and mysterious treasure story seems to be a tease, or a MacGuffin, and I just can't justify hanging around, waiting for it to get interesting. Trite, bland, same-face characters with hokey accents . . t'is a shame.
