It’s no secret that I’ve been loving the hell out of Fiona Staples DV8 Covers for the Brian Wood & Rebekah Isaacs Gods & Monsters mini-series, and this week is no exception. A beautiful cover featuring what’s turned into one of my favorite characters – Freestyle – that I hope is not going to bite it. Please please please Brian!
It’s also of note that while I ended up going for a panel of the week not from this book (that post goes up Tuesday 10/26), this entire goddamn book could have been scanned and posted as Panel(s) of the week. It is BEAUTIFUL. Rebekah Issacs’ not only renders her characters exceptionally but she has a real gift for storytelling and stunning action set pieces. Much of this series has been set in an “undeveloped civilization” and has featured warring tribes battling on epic natural battlefields…and Isaacs has just delivered a completely compelling and really cinematic visual experience. Overall it has been an amazing series, and I can say without a doubt is one of the best written, best drawn books I have read this year. I’ll miss it immensely when it ends next month. If you haven’t been reading it, I urge you to seek it out and if you can’t find it or can’t afford it, make sure to pick up the trade April 2011.
