Comics Should Be Good on Elk’s Run
Elk’s Run got a second chance when Villard picked it up and agreed to publish it, because apparently absolutely no one was reading the single issues. This is a marvelous comic that deserves all the accolades it gets (and deserves a better introduction than Charlie Huston’s, which is … odd, to say the least). There is no reason whatsoever for you not to buy this book. It’s a gripping story with wonderful characters and excellent art. It’s full of action but it also has some interesting things to say about our world and the way we run our lives. Do yourself a favor and buy it.
There's also quite a bit of analysis, and comparison to the just released Alice in Sunderland, in terms of themes and stuff. Pretty interesting read, if I do say so myself.
