Astonishing X-Men #03: Torn
Astonishing X-Men #03: Torn
by Joss Whedon
Staff Pick
I have to give it to Joss Whedon. He has rebooted the X-men, again, in a very enjoyable way. Undoubtedly a fan-boy himself, he has attempted to take the X-men seriously. Not to say that the story isn't as outlandish as any other X-Men — it just tries... (read more)

Conan Volume 1: The Frost Giant's Daughter and Other Stories
by Kurt Busiek and Thomas Yeates and Cary Nord
Staff Pick
This latest comic incarnation of Conan is fantastic. It stays true to Howard's original tales and easily survives the translation to the graphic. The art is positively amazing. I fell in love with this series immediately; it's better than re-reading the... (read more)

But I Like It
But I Like It
by Joe Sacco
Staff Pick
Joe Sacco's mesmerizing quest to "adulthood" is a road full of the sort of hysteria, psychedelia, and bull&%#t that can only come from being a rock 'n' roll cartoonist on tour. To imagine Robert Crumb meeting Spinal Tap might give you a slight idea of... (read more)
