*Obie, through his dabbling in arcane magics mixed with ancient corrupt business practices, has had not just the colors of his fur switched, but a complete overhaul of his work ethic as well…I think I’m kinda okay with the mishap.

Samurai Jack or not, you need to run out and buy these three issues before the fourth drops next month, as the trade does not come out until May 2017, and that is too long a time to wait for a comic book this fantastic. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
The Micronauts by my side as well as any and all things Thanos and Warlock (especially those issues by my hero Jim Starlin). I would also have to bring along Descender, which is written by Jeff Lemire, the writer on the new — bring it back home, Donist — Thanos comic. Admittedly, I’m a tad behind on whatever is going on in the Marvel U at the moment, but when you mix one of my favorite creators with one of my favorite characters, and it is currently outside of any events, there’s no way I would skip out on reading this series. At only two issues in, the story is quite simple: Thanos is dying and he will take everyone with him if he cannot discover a cure for his condition. There are various factions seeking to put him down ahead of schedule, but you will just have to read this title to learn more about them. Needless to say I am digging the story so far, and I am also very much enjoying Deodatos art, with the coolest sequence being the one of Nebula breaking into a spaceship, which looks like something out of an old Warren Magazine sci-fi story. It’s beautiful. But what I enjoyed most about this issue is the coloring and design. I am unsure whether Deodato or Martin is responsible for the stunning halftone dots found on every page, but the colors…oh my stars and garters, Denizens…the colors are amazing on this comic. Martin knows how to make a great and peaceful world appear truly magical, and it’s his use of analogous and complementary colors at just the right time to really ramp up the emotion of a scene — again, the Nebula sequence takes the cake. So, yes, it is possible to have someone other than Starlin deliver a great look into the complex character of Thanos, and I am thrilled to see what happens next. You need to check this out. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
