“Mallory, comics is the silver bullet. Comics is everything. We don’t need little changes, we need gigantic, monumental changes. Comic shops should be palaces. The competition for the best creators should be fierce. They should be making six-figure salaries. Comic shops should be incredibly expensive for government and absolutely free of charge to its citizens, just like national defense. That’s my position. I just haven’t figured out how to do it yet.”

Costa and Fuso will be doing this story until they die, and I’m fine with that, regardless of how many times IDW renames and renumbers it, like a network drama that can’t land a final time slot. The story that these creators started , and its unexpected excellence carries on, and like the threat of Cobra itself, no one can stamp it out. If you’ve been following along, or lost the thread, this is where it’s popping up next. Carry on, soldier.

Batman: Li’l Gotham #1
By Dustin Nguyen & Derek Fridolfs
Looking for a little fun in your comics? A fan of Skottie Young’s babies covers? Well then here’s the comic for you! A while back there was a story in Superman / Batman that was drawn by Dustin Nguyen that featured toddler versions of the DC heroes and it was wonderful. Now we’ve got a whole series in that vein! It has been appearing weekly digitally but now here it is for the first time in print!

Mind MGMT, Vol. 1: The Manager
By Matt Kindt
My experience with Matt Kindt’s catalog is appallingly sparse. After reading his recent contributions to Vertigo’s Time Warp anthology, I’ve vowed to make amends. A heady cocktail of deep conspiracy and spoon-bending mental jousting, Mind MGMT sounds to me like Men Who Stare at Goats without Ewan McGregor’s woeful American accent. Tired of the same old stuff? Invest in some brain food.
