He advises several heroes of Greek mythology, including Hercules (Latham 42). See Uncanny X-Men for collection information. It’s a great opening book – I only wish the other books were written so I could keep reading! The Complete Edition collects both Volume 1 and 2 in a single book. It’s about time Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips got around to doing The Fade Out. One theme of The Love Bunglers is what people don’t talk about, to protect themselves or their loved ones, and the great unspoken things from the series, both secret and open, finally rise to the surface here, until–in an extraordinary silent sequence–we see the whole historical shape of an emotional truth that Hernandez’s characters have never fully acknowledged before.

Well, I was a relatively early adapter because I was sick of not being allowed to smoke while doing lectures, and it was really a difficult problem for me. Heaven forfend the critical trifecta of Clowes, Crumb and Ware not land in the top ten. The writing and art are both top notch, but Culbard’s designs are especially impressive, building not just a world, but worlds, as Wren and Seventeen go along their travels.

"These are individually new stories, even though they've got bits and pieces of old and formative origin stuff in and around them, as well."
