Episode 29: The BKV Conundrum

This week, Alan and Brooks review Image's Plutona #1 from Jeff Lemire and Emi Lenox. With that, the two speak about the troubles of launching multiple titles when one of your current books is the best on the shelf (we call it the Brian K. Vaughan Conundrum). Plutona seems like it can be good, but Descender has raised the bar on Lemire's work.

Speaking of, We Stand on Guard #3 released this week, which we continue to read and still not enjoy as much as Vaughan's other works.

Other books discussed this week: Immortal Iron Fist, M.O.D.O.K. Assassin, Book of Death: Ninjak, Old Man Logan, and The Hollows.

Next week's Debut Review:

  • Tet #1 (of 4) - IDW: Eugene Smith is desperate to leave Vietnam behind, and begin a new life with the woman he loves. But when a fellow Marine is brutally murdered, Eugene's plans are thrown away, forever. All's fair in love and war, right? Writer Paul Allor and artist Paul Tucker present an extraordinary, heartfelt story of hard-boiled crime and star-crossed romance, set at the height of the Vietnam War and the decades that followed.
