It's the end of the first arc of the stellar new series from creators Scott Snyder, Charles Soule, and Giuseppe Camuncoli, Undiscovered Country. With the group splintered and under pursuit from the deranged Destiny Man, Charlotte, Daniel, and Uncle Sam have found their way towards the exit of Destiny Man's zone, looking to walk deeper through the Spiral and find out the secrets of this new America. Since they closed their borders, the United States has been an enigma, with new territories emerging led like small fiefdoms controlled by some rather unsavory characters. Despite this, the team has soldiered on, attempting to uncover the cure for a devastating virus inside the sealed walls of America.
I occasionally have nightmares themed around the works of R.L. Stein. His books occupied a strange and fantastic niche that only the children of the '90s could allow.
Matt Fraction is back with Terry Dodson to bring us an action/adventure story right out of the 1940s… er, wait. No, the modern era. Well, the first issue of this rollicking, fun time splits the difference.

I have always really loved the film, Napoleon Dynamite. It came out when I was a teen, and I saw it in the tiny, independent movie theater in my hometown. I think my brother and I saw it three times in theaters; we liked it so much - the subtlety of the humor, the slightly retro vibe. It was also made by a couple of Mormon kids which we were at the time. It was a pop culture phenomenon I could finally talk about openly at church without getting unsolicited opinions from overly righteous adults. We were borderline obsessed. At one point when I was in Idaho (were they filmed the movie), I went and drove by some of the houses and locations, including what used to be a Liger farm. I also ate a lot of tater tots. So, it's safe to say I am, and always have been, a fan which is why I was so excited to read this new story, Napoleon Dynamite: Impeach Pedro.
Walt Simonson is a revered Norse king in the comics industry. The writer/artist has had impressive runs on DC and Marvel titles ranging from Detective Comics and Thor to The Fantastic Four and X-Factor. His extraordinary storytelling skills and bold linework have earned him astounding praise from not only a diverse and devoted fanbase, but award slangin’ critics.
I was thrilled to see a new Nailbiter title in the queue from Image Comics. If you don’t know, Nailbiter is the absolutely epic, three-volume tale about a town, Buckaroo, Oregon, that has a dark past of being the birthplace of sixteen infamous serial killers, the Buckaroo Butchers. The most well known of those serial killers is the Nailbiter. The mythology that our hero police officers and FBI agents dug into throughout the first series was just as deep and complex as the characters themselves.
