I was going to put up an advance review of this, but my internet crapped out for a few days, so now it'll just be a plain ol' RG review.

Also, I bought Lorna: Relic Wrangler, but had way too hard a time finishing it. I'll try to get something up for that.

browsed through it, haven't read it yet. Lot's of nudity though, that automatically starts it at a 6 for the art. :-D

And I've narrowed my choice down to three. Secret Six, That Fear thingy from Marvel, or Brightest Day #23.

It would be, like everything else I do, rather dull.

For those who've read #1, I posted five pages from #2 here:

If you open them in a different tab they should be enlargeable.

Butcher Baker: The Righteous Maker #1

Wow.

This might be the first comic to need a warning for epileptics. I don't think there's been a new series this visually striking since Nic Klein's Viking.

The art in Butcher Baker jumps off the page, it really overwhelms what little story the comic contains. Certainly Joe Casey doesn't hold back with the wild and crazy, but I suspect Mike Huddleston could have made a routine trip to the supermarket look just as fantastic.

Seriously, if Huddleston can give a halfway decent explanation for where that tail is attached in the post-coital panel just give him the Eisner now.

I don't know if Butcher Baker can live up to being the Nextwave/Casanova mashup it wants to be, but if nothing else I'm going to keep buying it for the art.

Story: 6
Art: 11
Overall: 8.5

I didn't get this, since I don't expect my Catholic family to dig a comic with a bright man crotch on the cover. The interior art looked slick, though.
