Lee: I can't believe another month has gone by. It's suddenly summer and previews are starting to get thin. Oh well, makes it easier to pick books!
Gwen:If my comments are somewhat I apologize. With the school year coming to an end my work is rather hectic at the moment.
5 more below the break! Check it out.
Lee: I love :01 Second and this looks to be a fine addition to their line of books. They always seem to find new and different things that appeal to just about everyone. Even though this appears to be horror based, I betting there's far more to the story than meets the eye. I'm sold.
Lee: This is another series that has been in print for a very long time but I havne't managed to read. People who have read it seem to love it. It has the Akiko, Bone young adult vibe going which is perfect for my house these days.
Killer Omnibus Vol. 01 HC by (w) Matz (a/c) Luc Jacamon
Lee: Ok, it’s no mystery that Jim and I love the Killer. I have all the collections and have enjoyed each one. But, I have to say I feel slightly screwed by this. I would have loved an Omnibus. I would have purchased this if I didn’t already own it! I’m used to the big two doing multiple versions of the exact same material, not the little companies. No matter, it’s a great story and this is a great way to read it if you haven’t already done so.
Gwen:The Killer is a good story but I still have the single issues so I don't feel pressed to have any collected versions as it's not that large of a series.
Operation Broken Wings 1936 SC by (w) Herik Hanna (a/c) Trevor Hairsine
Artist Trevor Hairsine brings you WWII action like you've never seen before! It's 1936. A German intelligence officer is tortured by his superiors. They want to know why he has turned against them. Imprisoned, he gives up nothing as he seemingly waits for death...or the right time to strike! Written by Herik Hanna and drawn by Trevor Hairsine, Operation: Broken Wings, 1936 gives you deadly intrigue and bone-crunching action exactly as you like it! Collects the acclaimed mini-series and features additional commentary and artwork by artist Trevor Hairsine! 64 pgs, $9.99
Lee: And this is how you read material from Hairsine. He's a great artist but boy oh boy does he not like deadlines. He's part of that wonderful clic that's never seen a deadline they couldn't miss. The problem is that his art is sooooo lovely. This should be pretty and the story sounds good enough that I'll check it out.
Gwen:I like getting spy books for my husband. But lets face it Lee, if the art is shiny enough you don't need much story!
