Sweet Tooth #12

Presented with a paint-by-numbers cover, I couldn’t pass up this issue of “Sweet Tooth.” Oh yeah, it’s a standalone issue specifically designed to entice new readers. As if the paint-by-numbers cover didn’t give that away.

Darkstar and the Winter Guard #3

“A badass bear with a hammer” doesn’t quite measure up to a gun-toting gorilla, and this book doesn’t quite measure up to “Atlas.” It’s still a decent read.
