American Vampire #28
The next AMERICAN VAMPIRE epic begins here with part one of “The Blacklist.” 1950’s Hollywood is in the grip of “The Red Scare,” but in this twisted tale it’s more than just the political scene that runs red.This massive story with major revelations is NOT to be missed!

Also released by Vertigo today is a genre of comic I know nothing about:Cuisine.More specifically this original Graphic novel Get Jiro,
appears to be a take on the enormously popular Japanese Cookery Manga like Oishinbo
.I honestly have no clue….Get jiro seems visually great though.
Don’t miss this original graphic novel from Anthony Bourdain, renowned chef, New York Times bestselling author (Kitchen Confidential, Medium Raw) and star of the Emmy-winning hit travel show No Reservations and the brand new series The Layover! Co-written with Joel Rose (LA PACIFICA, Kill Kill Faster Faster) this stylized send-up of food culture and society features spectacular detailed and dynamic art by Langdon Foss.In a not-too-distant future of food obsessed L.A., where master chefs rule the town like crime lords and people literally kill for a seat at the best restaurant, Jiro, a renegade and ruthless sushi chef arrives in town with strong ideas of his own. It’s a bloody culinary war of epic proportions, and in the end, no chef may be left alive!
Ah!Marvel!!The most exciting release this week at Marvel is Hit Girl,so exciting that Marvel have printed four variant covers including a blank one!The first solo outing for Mindy McCreedy & her alter ego,this series covers the time between Kick Ass 1 & 2.
A bit of a movie tie-in now….well an appearance by the Lizard in Amazing Spider-Man #688.
Amazing Spider-Man #688
- No need to wait for the movie to see Spider-Man wrangle the reptilian rage of one of his greatest foes!
- Spider-Man is stuck between two monsters when Morbius the Living Vampire attempts to cure the Lizard and restore Curt Connors.

Over at Image we have Mind The Gap #2 which answers & then poses some important questions!
Mind The Gap #2
Last issue’s THREE cliffhangers are answered here, leading to even more questions surrounding the attack on Elle Peterssen. A new person is introduced, but are they friend or foe? And Elle quickly finds that the situation she is in has rapidly gone from a 10 to 10,000!
The anxiously awaited ongoing mystery deepens as the web of suspects and lies spreads.
I also recommend the first TPB from Images Fatale series;Death Chases Me.
The first arc of Image’s surprise hit is collected just in time for new readers to jump on board with issue 6! Secrets, lies, horror, lust and monsters from the time before time all collide in FATALE: DEATH CHASES ME. In present day, a man meets a woman who he becomes instantly obsessed with, and in the 1950s, this same woman destroys the lives of all those who cross her path, on a quest for… what? ED BRUBAKER and SEAN PHILLIPS best-selling series will leave you craving more!
