      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. :( :::

    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.
