The Fade Out #2

thefadeout_2I’m in love with this new Brubaker / Phillips series, Fangirls. Of course, not that I expected to feel any other way. However, I’ve already read the released issues twice through already, and wait for each new one like a junkie. What can I say? These fellows know how to make a mean comic book. All this noir murder mystery stuff gets me all hot & bothered.

Elektra #10

4331281-elektra2014010_dc11-0The last few issues of this series have been building quite a bit, Fangirls, and have been just as intense on their own, too. However, now, things are seriously getting real. Issue #10 is delivering us some real climactic moments, all of which will finally conclude next issue. This issue really is the final build up, and I’m feeling the tension.
