Last Night was an A1, tip-top, clubbing, jam fair. It was a sandwich of fun, on ecstasy bread, wrapped up in a big bag like disco fudge. It doesn’t get much better than that. I just wish that I could control these *fucking comic books!*

American Vampire Anthology #1
By Scott Snyder, Jeff Lemire, Greg Rucka, Gail Simone, Gabriel Ba, Fabio Moon, Becky Cloonan,
Rafael Albuquerque, Francesco Francavilla, & Declan Shalvey
It’s eight bucks. But look at those names. Scott Snyder went and got all his super talented friends together, and made some comics. That’s a party I want to go to.

Itty Bitty Hellboy #1
By Art Baltazar & Franco
An all-ages Hellboy book from the team that brought us Tiny Titans and the transcendent Superman Family Adventures? Where do I sign? Oh, I don’t have to sign? I just have to give you money? Okay!

Station to Station (One Shot)
By Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman
Whether you missed this one in the pages of Dark Horse Presents or simply want it all in one place, consider this terrifying tale of kaiju terror in the Bay Area your final summer blockbuster of the season. Bechko and Hardman always deliver on a brand of science fiction both pulpy and substantive, so you’ll want to wrap your tentacles around this one before it slinks back into the abyss. The abyss being a longbox in some other lucky, discerning reader’s collection.
