Fables, Vol. 10: The Good Prince (Fables, #10)
I will admit this story could have used some refining. There are portions where Willingham feels like he wants to get from point A to B so strongly he ...more

X-Treme X-Men, Vol. 1: Destiny
Ah yes, when they wanted to shake all the X-Men books up in 2001, Claremont could still sell books if not write them. So they took him off the major t ...more

X-Factor Visionaries: Peter David, Vol. 1

Atomic Robo and the Fightin' Scientists of Tesladyne (Atomic Robo, #1)
Quite fun. It is Hellboy, but more of a tech focus than folklore. And more comedy. A lot more comedy. Makes me think of The Amazing Screw-On Head actu ...more
