Weekly Comics for January 13, 2009

Daytripper #2 (Slice-of-life tales with a touch of magic from Brazil by Gabriel Ba & Fabio Moon. Beautiful to look at, mesmerizing to read, as good as their work on De:Tales and other projects they've done together)

Orc Stain #1 (Spectacularly beautiful to look at, and fun take on fantasy with orcs as protagonists)

S.W.O.R.D. #3 (This is a fantastic book about aliens in the Marvel Universe that far too few people are reading. Love the artwork, love the characters, love the dialogue. Kieron Gillen is going to be a name people are tossing around with Warren Ellis in a year or two, and this may wind up a forgotten gem. Read it now so you'll look smart then.)

The Unwritten #9 (Wow. After last issue, I thought they might, but I'm still surprised they went there. Dark issue, but really interesting and compelling as well)

The only title I recognize on the list is Sword. My husband is reading that one.

Image publishes Orc Stain, and Daytrippers and Unwritten are both Vertigo. In case you want to check any of them out.
