Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suit on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life… But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin’ else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you’ve got comic books?
Ron says try…
By Brian Churilla
There’s nothing better than an American mystery and the world of D.B. Cooper is exactly that. Btian Churilla joins the ranks of The Sixth Gun with The Secret History of D.B. Cooper #1, a new ongoing from Oni that promises to fill in the gaps of one of the most curious stories of the late 20th century. Just who was D.B. Cooper? What was he doing on that plane? What does a talking bear have to do it with it? Who cares when you have a cover featuring J.H. Williams III. Check out this preview of this issue that we ran back in December.
Josh says try…
By Corinna Bechko, Gabriel Hardman, Marc Laming, & Jordie Bellaire
The previous series by Bechko and Hardman was one of the highlights of the last few months, and this looks to continue the trend. They were having fun, and they’re not done yet. Hardman isn’t on art duties this time out, but Marc Laming looks like he can ably handle the job, assisted by colors from Bellaire who colored Betrayal of the Planet of the Apes as well. It’s kind of a sure thing.

X-Men: Season One
By Dennis Hopeless & Jamie McKelvie
When these Season One OGNs were first announced this was the one that immediately stood out, if for no other reason than Jamie McKelvie is fantastic and I’ll buy pretty much anything he draws. But put him on the X-Men? That’s a perfect match. And put him on the first days, and best days, of the X-Men? Even more perfect. Plus, he has been teasing us with images from the book for months and it looks gorgeous. I enjoyed Fantastic Four: Season One a lot but this one should be great.
