Read from January 28 to 31, 2010

Hilarious post-modern take on a cosmic superhero a la Kirby and Lee. The art is a wonderful tribute to the style and imagination of Jack Kirby, who as I understand it really conceived most of the characters and stories during his collaboration with ego-maniac shyster Stan Lee, who would mostly just write cliched dialogue for the stories. In this book almost every line is a cliche and it is absolutely hilarious! With villains like Discordia, who gets her kicks as a sadist, and Basil Cronus whose skull floats in liquid in his jar like head, and who just wants to get super high, I found myself loving this book almost as much as the original Kirby/Lee work from which it derives.
