Making it official...

Joe the Barbarian #1
as selected by group vote[/center]
Written by Grant Morrison
Art by Sean Murphy

Having an overactive imagination can get a kid through a lot, but it doesn't change the facts: Joe's still the kid in school that can't fit in. He's the victim of bullies. His dad died overseas in the Iraq war. And then there's the Type 1 diabetes he has to live with.

So is it insulin-deprived delirium or something much, much bigger that transports Joe to a land inhabited by all his toys – from ninja commandos to action robots to magical knights to star fleet captains? Is Joe really the savior of this wild fantasyland that's been held under siege by dark magic and evil forces? With the help of a samurai rodent, is he ready to take back besieged castles and win the freedom of an oppressed people? Or is he just an over imaginative boy who could die if he doesn't take his meds?

White-hot writer Grant Morrison follows up his phenomenal BATMAN AND ROBIN with an epic adventure that's Home Alone by way of Lord of the Rings accompanied with to-die-for Art by future superstar Sean Murphy (YEAR ONE: BATMAN/SCARECROW, HELLBLAZER).

It's $1. I'm pretty sure the bullet would cost more.

I might just do that. There's no way I can commit to weekly reviews. But I might start to jump in when your choices overlap with my interests or curiosity.

Sean Murphy is doing the art, And he is awesome. So even if you hate the story, you will likely find the illustrations strong and worth the dollar.
