I live my life a quarter comic book at a time. Nothing else matters: not the mortgage, not the store, not my team and all their bullshit. For those ten seconds or less, I’m free.

By Greg Rucka and Matthew Southworth
If I’ve got to convince you, then maybe you’re just not worth it. That’s right, I said it. What you’ve got here is the product of the talent of Rucka and Southworth, the previous efforts of which netted an Eisner Award. But even without that, what you’ve got is a labor of love, crafted by skill with passion, featuring wonderful characters and I cannot wait to get my hands on it. They had some shipping delays before, because… sometimes it takes a while, but we’re assured that this time out, things will flow much more smoothly. Welcome back, Dex. We have missed you greatly.

By Jeff Parker & Erika Moen
When Jeff Parker told me the premise of Bucko at a con a couple of years ago, I laughed out loud. The premised as he explained it was an awkward “What would you do?” scenario of “What would you do if you go to a job interview and you really have to go to the bathroom but you find a dead body lying there. Would you go to the bathroom first or go get help?” Once he finished that pitch, he had me and since then, Bucko has been one of the few webcomics I’ve read on a regular basis. Erika Moen perfectly cartoons the insane Portland happenings that happen to Parker’s hapless heroes and it’s a ton of fun. If you didn’t read it online, this is definitely worth checking out.

By Mike Grell
Let’s face it, until I’m put in charge of DC Comics we’re never going to get Mike Grell’s legendary run on Green Arrow reprinted. Maybe it’s because the level of violence and nudity would make it a book more appropriate for Vertigo rather than a DCU character who is about to headline a television show on The CW? It’s certainly not because it isn’t awesome, because it is. it’s awesome. Grell’s Green Arrow is one of my all-time favorite series so unless you enjoy back issue hunting, the only taste you’re going to get is the semi-annual new edition of perhaps the most iconic Green Arrow story of all time, The Longbow Hunters.
