It's about time we did another non-superhero book. This time we jump to the Crossgen universe (yes, they had a universe!) to read Ruse by one of our favorites writers, Mark Waid.

It's a Sherlock Holmes story, but if it focused more on a female Watson who uses time-stop magic that Sherlock doesn't know about.

Don’t worry, it'll all make sense. Join us for Ruse 1-5!

Nobody ever thinks about the little guys, the ones who have to clean up after all the superheroes. Nobody but Dwayne McDuffie, that is!

He wrote a few miniseries for Marvel called Damage Control with artist Ernie Colon and together they tackled the comedic world of work orders and bureaucracy.

Join us as we read the 2nd Damage Control miniseries "Acts of Vengeance" from 1989!

And the Eisner for Best New Series goes to… PAPER GIRLS by Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang!

We took a look at the first story arc in issues 1-5 and tried to piece together what we could from this bizarre time travel story. The room was pretty split as we tried to make the case for and against their Eisner win.
