Unfortunately, due to time constraints and not wanting to delay the scheduling of future Quick Picks shows, there won’t be a part 2 to week 4 of the new DCU. That being said, you should go pick up I, Vampire and Voodoo.

I’m a sucker for character studies in comics. The ones for Magneto and Red Skull come to mind when I think of great character pieces. Put Penguin – Pain & Prejudice #1 up there as a great start to another great piece. This goes beyond what Tim Burton did to introduce this sympathetic villain. While it makes me wonder if there’s anything more left to do in the next four issues, I can’t help but be in awe of what was accomplished here.

Not to be outdone, Huntress #1 brought another new mini-series to light, as the titular character flies to Italy to take out sex traffickers. The art is so fluid to look at during the action sequences. And Paul Levitz does justice to the character he had created.

OMAC #2 brings the Jack Kirby fun back for another round. You know what to expect from Keith Giffen, but give props to Dan Didio for proving us wrong about his writing chops. Just a fun ride to go through with this series.
