as usual, text RUViews are in the spoiler tags below
I Kill Giants – AWESOME
Unknown Soldier vol. 1: Haunted House – pretty good, would not mind of the spirit of the Unknown Soldier traveled more, kind of like what I remember of Grendel, but for $10 you really can't go wrong.
TMNT Collected Book vol. 1 – do not get this for any one, due to the Mirage bankruptcy and the purchase of TMNT by Nickelodeon, they will not be making future volumes
X Omnibus 1& 2 – 90s gore-tastic fun
Hatter M vol. 1 & 2 – really great art and story, but make sure they are reading the Looking glass War books as well. All make a great gift for teenager who likes fantasy books
Tick: The Complete Edlund / Karma Tornado / Big Blue Destiny – the first two were really fun reads, Big Blue Destiny – not so much
Chew: vol. 1; Taster’s Choice – holy crap, why did no one tell me about this book!?!?!?
Dark Entries – not only is this a good Hellblazer book, but it highlights how good a B&W book can be. One thing, get it at a discount from a LCS or Amazon, the $20 tag is too much.
Mouse Guard Fall 1152 / Winter 1152 – if you don’t know these books – shame on you
Starman Omnibus – I know that it seems that I rag on DC too much any more, but its just because they used to publish books like this! So far, from what I have read these books work for a non comic book reader as well as, maybe more than, Sandman. After only 4 issues (0-3) I was emotionally attached to this book and its characters, and that is about the highest complement I can give.

About the Author - GHERU
RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time. RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage. Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write. RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them. RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor. You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
