For Your Reading Pleasure, Alex Segura Recommends These Personal Favorites…
I just finished re-reading Return of the Dapper Men (SEP100782) from Archaia, by writer Jim McCann and artist Janet Lee. Superb stuff — it stands out and creates a world all its own in a few pages… really lovely, distinctive stuff. Stumptown (OCT108157), by Greg Rucka and artist Matthew Southworth, is a piece of excellent crime fiction: flawed protagonist, great gritty art and surprises at every turn. Just good, good stuff. And if you want a dash of creepy Twin Peaks-esque horror, then track down writer Ben McCool and artist Nikki Cook's Memoir (collected edition TBA) from Image Comics. Hard to put down — I know I couldn't.
