A Rogue Librarian's Reading List

{August 21, 2011}   Comics and manga of the week (3)

Ed Brubaker and Minx marathons this week. I’ve now read all the Minx titles that DC put out and I think it’s a crying shame that the line was aced. They put out some great titles and the concept had real potential if only they had given it a chance.
