A near-unanimous Pick of the Month?

Is it possible? Could ALL the Comix Connection Counter Monkeys be in unanimous agreement just this once? Behold the object of contention, quite possibly the most overlooked and underrated book of the year:



Originally appearing as an eight-part backup in DC's TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED, DOCTOR THIRTEEN: ARCHITECTURE AND MORALITY is writer Brian Azarello at his best... a delightful romp with forgotten DC characters battling The Architects (the four real-life writers of DCs universe-changing series 52), filtered through the sensibilities of the no-nonsense paranormal debunker, Doctor Thirteen. All delineated by the spectacular art of Cliff Chiang.

HERE'S a much better review/summary than I could hope to pen. Check it out, all in a snug trade paperback for a mere $14.99 and available now.

Ten Comix Connection Counter Monkeys agree: DOCTOR THIRTEEN: ARCHITECTURE AND MORTALITY is awesome!

(Did I mention the Nazi Gorillas? The VAMPIRE Nazi Gorillas? You can never get enough Vampire Nazi Gorillas.)

Ugh. I am buying this on your recommendation - oh AND Joe said it was great. However I have been successful for over a year now with my ban of Azarello. After "For Tomorrow" and his final Hellblazer story, I swore never to buy one of his books again.

I'll give this a shot though.

linnen - I know what you're saying... Azarello is a "binary" writer... his stuff is either (A) material or (D) rated... never anything in between. But when he hits, hit hits it out of the park!

I gave in on this, not to mention For Tomorrow, in all it's twisted glory, reads much better in trade (just recently figured this out - being the gluttion for punishment that I am)
