DEAD LETTERS #1
(W) Christopher Sebela (A) Chris Visions
WHY WE LOVE IT: Here at BOOM! Studios, crime is in our lood-from our comic-turned-feature film 2 GUNS to our critically acclaimed series HIT, we've always had a passion for all things noir. DEAD LETTERS is the next step in our exploration of the genre.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Creators Christopher Sebela (Ghost, High Crimes) and newcomer Chris Visions are two fresh voices that are about to take the industry by storm. Don't miss out on a wholly unique take on supernatural noir.
WHAT IT'S ABOUT: Sam Whistler wakes up in an unfamiliar motel room, dressed in hospital scrubs and his arms wrapped in bandages. He remembers nothing-not how he got here, not where here is...not even his own name. But the goons knocking down his door sure do, and it's going to take every single move in Sam's forgotten repertoire to outrun and outsmart the gang war he's just stumbled into.

LOKI: RAGNAROK AND ROLL #1
(W) Eric Esquivel (A) Jerry Gaylord
WHY WE LOVE IT: Up-and-coming writer Eric Esquivel first caught our attention with Thor: The Unkillable Thunder Christ, and wowed us with his work on FREELANCERS. When he told us he wanted to bring those sensibilities to the trickster god Loki, we had to say 'Yes!' Pairing him with FANBOYS VS ZOMBIES artist Jerry Gaylord sealed the deal. WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT: Loki steps out of the shadow cast by his thunderous brother as Norse mythology crosses over with the only thing on Earth as wild and crazy...rock and roll! WHAT IT'S ABOUT: What happens when Odin banished Loki to Earth? He finds a world of outcasts that appreciate his style! While his kin sharpen their weapons, he picks up an electric guitar.
It's the most stressful time of the year (for some people) but here at Zanadu, its always groovin and movin' with another week of fantastically shiny NEW COMICS!! Escape the crazy holiday reindeer slay of consumption with the CSSG team as they bring you everything from evil science weed to club hopping mech pilots to the Avengers party at the end of world! More bubblegum for the brain and soul courtesy of the mighty Z!!!
Like Zorak in Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Will and Anna deviously attempt to usurp the balance of power this week with not only a higher caliber of recommendations than Morgan and Casey would bring you, but even as far as impersonating the un-impersonateable (that's right, I made that word up) comic monkeys that you all know and love. Tears are shed and alliances shattered in BATTLE OF THE COMIC MONKEYS-- this week on COMICS SHOULD SMELL GOOD!!! The CSSG universe will never be the same!!
DAY MEN #2
(W) Matt Gagnon, Michael Alan Nelson (A) Brian Stelfreeze
David Reid is not having a good day. A fullblown war has erupted between the Virgo and Ramses families, and David is left to pick up the pieces while his vampire employers sleep. But with the Ramses' legendary Day Man Jacob the Burner on his tail, will David even make it to sundown?
RECOMMENDED BY ERIN.
Like Samurai Jack, Casey is back from the smog smothered high rises of L.A. to put the razzle dazzle back in this week's smelly good comic video thingy. A heartfelt thanks to our intrepid girl adventurer, Anna Pederson for doing a wonderful job of balancing Morgan's incomprehensible ramblings with her intimate knowledge of four color nonsense, but seeing as how it's boys week once again, BRING ON THE VIOLENT NONSENSE!! aheh, scuse me. So yeah, comix. comix. comix.(and that is not to say girls don't like that stuff, too--just puttin' that out there)
And what is the mysterious connection between Eminem and Marvel Comics? I think a certain mouse might have the answer...
