Log in to Reply Steve Seigh September 27, 2012 It’s all about the art for this column and I absolutely love the style in which that cover is drawn. It’s colorful and vibrant and the characters look as if they’re having a lot of fun which isn’t something you see every day on your comic rack. So much brooding going on these days. ::: Log in to Reply Layshock September 28, 2012 It’s really rare to see the Nouveau style done reasonably well, and Brooks absolutely nailed it. I’ve been a huge fan of Phil Noto for awhile as well. These are great picks. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
