Mark Sullivan said:Started Locke & Key Vol. 1: Welcome To Lovecraft by Joe Hill & Gabriel Rodriguez, which I'd been meaning to get to for awhile. Very enjoyable suspense/horror storytelling. Rodriquez's style is a bit on the cartoony YA side (some manga influence there, I think), but it works.
That one took me a while to get into, even though it is, as you say, enjoyable suspense/horror storytelling. I think the art had something to do with it. Even though I like the look of Rodriguez's art, it served as a barrier to entry for me at points, just because you expect a more muted, scratchy, and/or realistic style for horror.
The other night I read the second Madame Xanadu volume, Exodus Noir. The series continues to be excellent (there was one moment in the book that I felt was a little comic book cliché, but I can't remember what it was now, which shows how fleeting that moment was), but I have to say, I didn't enjoy the art as much. Not that there's anything wrong with Michael William Kaluta's art, of course, but I had become so enchanted by Amy Reeder Hadley's airy, manga-esque art in the first book, that Kaluta's was a surprising gear shift.
Stumptown 2,3,and 4, I really enjoyed them and yes I know I'm way behind in reading comics. Now if I can just get around to ordering the last 4 issues of Sixth Gun I'll be happy. Over the weekend I went through my Amazing Screw-On Head and Other Curious Objects and Three Thieves Tower of Treasure. I'm now anxiously awaiting my Rocketeer Complete HC which should hopefully show up this week or next.
