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.
