New Year, New Comics

Posted on
Bought this at Midtown Comics in Manhattan on New Year’s Day

 

This comic (above) is brilliant. Buy it. Buy it now. I’d not spotted it before, but it was part of a “start reading a new comic series” sale at Midtown Comics in NYC. The cover didn’t particularly grip me – yet another group of attractive teenagers going to school. So far, so Gossip Girl.

But as soon as I started reading, I was hooked – I won’t spoil the story for you, but so far it reads like an Orwellian X-Men. Talented kids, exclusive boarding school… wackiness ensues. A very dark brand of wackiness.

I also took a punt on some indie comics I’d not heard of. Will report on those if any good. Plus the next 2 volumes of The Unwritten.
