Graphic Novels You Really Oughta Get Your Hands On

Posted on

GRAPHIC NOVELS YOU REALLY OUGHTA GET YOUR HANDS ON

CREATURE TECH (Top Shelf, $14.95) Scientists are funny–especially when they come equipped with an alien parasite that knows kung fu and a mostly dead ghost on their tail. HEROBEAR AND THE KID (Astonish, $19.95) It’s like you’re reading a soft, sweet, sometimes sad animated movie about a kid and a 10-foot-tall caped polar bear. Now I want one. VIETNAM JOURNAL (ibooks, $13.95) This neglected 1988 book gets a reissue, and it’s worth taking a look: It wraps harsh realism in agreeeably traditional Marvel-style art. QUEEN & COUNTRY–OPERATION: CRYSTAL BALL (Oni, $14.95) British agents taking on bioterrorists and al-Qaeda? Comics almost shouldn’t be allowed to be this topical.
