Adventure Time with Fionna and Cake #1

"Adventure Time with Fionna and Cake" #1 is hilarious, clever and a great time, and if that isn't enough by itself, I've never seen such a successful example of gender-swapping. Natasha Allegri and Noelle Stevenson each write and illus

Fatale #11

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips tell the first of a series of one-off stories about Josephine's past in "Fatale" #11, and this tale from the 1930s is not only a great introduction to the series, it's plain great.

Delphine

Richard Sala's "Delphine" is an extremely loose (and fittingly dark) retelling of "Snow White" that bears little resemblance to the original tale, but is entirely engrossing in its own way.

Punisher: Nightmare #1

The basic idea behind Scott M. Gimple and Mark Texeira's "Punisher: Nightmare" #1 -- a modern war veteran goes through the same experiences that turned Frank Castle in the Punisher -- isn't bad, but the execution is lacking.
