Essex County

Well, my Red Hulk prediction didn't pan out I suppose, but I think it would have been way awesome!

On the flip side of comics, guess who just won an autographed copy of Jeff Lemire's Essex County?

I really loved the first two volumes of this work and will find the time soon to read volume 3. I really think that what's been created here is some of the strongest material to argue for comics as literature. Engaging stories, elegant construction of narrative and subtle questioning of the reader's assumptions are found in what I've read.
