CBF Quick Picks #85 – American Vampire #18


[display_podcast]
Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque bring us the conclusion of Ghost War in American Vampire #18. And it’s a fine one, as we see the end of the Skinner Sweet saga (or so it seems) and a new direction that would keep this series going into new period pieces. It’s great to see Snyder committed to this story even with his impending DC re-launch books on the horizon.

IDW brings back an 80’s classic in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1. The darker tone is apparent to go with the way the original indie comic was like. And it’s set up some interesting stories and different takes on the popular characters.

And lastly, it’s back to the Age of Apocalypse with Uncanny X-Force #13. The team’s romp in this universe to retrieve the Life Seed for Archangel has been a nostalgic one, though how it ends makes us think that Archangel might not be so receptive to it. More zany fun from the mind of Rick Remender.
