More Exciting June News...

So June is going to be an exciting month, for a lot of reasons. I already mentioned the return of the Venture Brothers, but now it looks like there's some exciting trades news to make the month even more appealing.

First off we've got Hack/Slash volume 4: Revenge of the Return by Tim Seeley. This is hands down one of the best horror comics out there right now. Both dark and funny, Hack/Slash is the story of a pair of slasher killers who set out to do away with all the murderous cliches we've come to love from classic (and not so classic) horror movies.

Next up is Atomic Robo Volume 1: Atomic Robo & the Fighting Scientists of Tesladyne by Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener. This comic literally came out of nowhere to probably be one of the best written and most entertaining new series to come out this past year. As the title suggests it follows a robot named Atomic Robo who was created by Nikola Tesla, and his team of Action Scientists as they travel the world destroying and blowing things up in as scientific a manner as possible.

There's also Y: The Last Man volume 10 Whys and Wherefores, the final chapter in the massively popular series by Brian K. Vaughn and Pia Guerra. Really, I don't think I even need to say anything about this book.

Then there's Jack of Fables volume 3: The Bad Prince by Matthew Sturges and Bill Willingham. Now although was probably one of my least favorite characters in the original Fables series, I've really been won over by this book. And with Fables drawing ever closer to it's potential conclusion, it'll be nice to know that when that day should come, we'll still have Jack.

And lastly, there's Kabuki volume 7: The Alchemy by David Mack. This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful and moving books ever written. As the series has evolved, I can't help but be more and more amazed with what David Mack is doing, both with his stories and with his art.

So that's about it for now, but June is still a few months away and who knows what other books could join this list.
