Will someone please explain Deconnick’s and Rios’ ‘Pretty Deadly’ to me, and why I like it so much. I beg of you. The second arc commenced this week in issue # 6.
Japan’s New Gods bested the Japanese Supernatural Titans, and look to consolidate their power; but the old Gods are not ready to quit just yet. Wayward #11 is a good jumping point, as its second arc begins too.
Have Debbie and Led found a true Edenic Bushido Paradise in ‘Tokyo Ghost’ #3? Can peace be truly found in a Paradise driven by a Samurai Code?
Am I sensing a strong Eastern influence in this week’s Image Books? How odd.
Huck, by Mark Millar, is a gentle power, whose secret is about to end.
And I read Skottie Young’s ‘I Hate Fairyland’ because it is violently funny. How am I gonna explain this one to my therapist?
Here are the quotes:
“In our quest for convenience, we’ve traded in the Earth for synthetic facsimile.”
Rick Remender, with Art by Sean Murphy, Tokyo Ghost #3, Image Comics
“Oh nonsense Butterfly. Just because you cannot see order does not mean it isn’t there.”
Kelly Sue Deconnick, with Art by Emma Rios, Pretty Deadly #6, Image Comics
“The stories of old are washed away, replaced with shallow rubbish. I’m fascinated and appalled by it.”
Jim Zub, with Art by Steven Cummings, Wayward #11, Image Comics
