I’m intimately familiar with Marvel continuity. I’ve read the original “Winter Soldier” story arc more times than I can remember. I [...]

DEADLY CLASS #3 Published by Image Comics Story by Rick Remender Art by Wes Craig Colors by Lee Loughridge Letters by Russ Wooton At the end of every issue of DEADLY CLASS, I think to myself, that was the best damn thing I’ve ever read.

enormous

A few years back, Image put out a (conveniently oversized) comic book one-shot called ENORMOUS, by Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour, about a post-apocalyptic world permeated with radiation and crawling with giant mutated beasts.
