FPI: Can you pick three comics/webcomics/graphic novels which you especially enjoyed over the last twelve months and tell us why you singled them out?
Adam: This year I read a lot of comics from Monkeybrain – High Crimes, by Christopher Sebela and Ibrahim Moustafa is my favourite comic, hands-down. Espionage and deceit and the frozen bodies of those who tried – and failed – to climb Mount Everest. Also from Monkeybrain is Bandette, by Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover, charting the adventures of the title character, a young costumed thief who leads a group of fellow urchins. It’s beautiful and the most fun.
We just learned that Amelia Cole and the Unknown World sold out its print run and is going back to print! This is fantastic news! HOWEVER - you want a print trade for a holiday gift, we suggest you go to a store or hit up Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Amelia-Cole-Unknown-World-Brokenshire/dp/1613777000/ NOW as we do not know how many are in the wild and new copies might not show for a few weeks… Holy wow, you guys. THANK YOU so much for the support!
"Edison Rex" #12 is another strong installment from a consistently great series. Those who prefer to wait for print can pick up the collection of #1-6 already, with a second volume containing #7-12 scheduled for next spring. Personally, though, I wouldn’t wait. At 99 cents a pop, you’re getting a great deal here and a lot of the fun is how well Roberson and Culver are using the serial format to build up the tension and suspense. If you aren’t reading "Edison Rex" yet, at just a dollar, maybe it’s time you gave it a try yourself.
