Caligula: Heart of Rome & Avengers Academy
Caligula: Heart of Rome #1– You have to appreciate a book that pretty much lets you know what you are in for within the first page. Fans of extreme bloody violence, sadomasochism, torture, sexual deviancy, and lots and lots of stabbing need look no further. With all of that in mind, Lapham and Nobile created an intriguing world of historical demonic intrigue with their last run and it looks like they are set to do the same again.

The Hollows, To Hell You Ride & Cable and X-Force
The Hollows #1– I love the Maxx. I always thought it was such a unique piece of storytelling and art, and the animated series was a perfect adaptation. Everything else by Sam Keith……well, let’s be generous and say it’s been 50/50. He still has a unique art style, but in general a lot of his work always looks rushed or lazy to me. This title looks better than the past couple projects, but it just doesn’t really draw me in or hold my interest.
