Pick of the Week – The Strain #3
There’s something really good about The Strain. It’s a vampire tale mixed with a biological CDC thriller/procedural. There’s enough here to make it stand out from the endless amounts of other vampire stories on the market. The art fits the mood perfectly and there’s just a sense of dread that permeates the story. I was looking forward to see what the series had to offer when it was announced, but I had no clue it’d be this good. A perfect comic for these dreary winter months and one you should be absolutely reading.
- The Strain #3 – See above
- Last of the Greats #5 – Josh Fialkov is a twisted man and this series is a prime example. What do you get when you take a super hero and mix him with Machiavelli? This would be pretty close.
- Severed #7 – A haunting horror story that just sticks with you. There’s been so many holy crap moments already, I can’t imagine what this final issue has in store.
- Thief of Thieves #1 – Image has been on a roll so far and this series has a lot of buzz about it. The previews I’ve seen have been cool, and this is one I can’t wait to read.
- Mega Man #10 – Archie has been knocking it out of the park with this series that’s fun for adults and kids and captures the spirit of the video game and cartoon series.
