The Whole Kitchen Sink!
I had a hard time with this week's new books. Nothing really jumped out at me. So I think I'm gonna write about a few more titles than I normally do, but I'm gonna keep it short and no ratings. Basically everything gets an honorable mention! Let us know if you prefer my more in depth review of a few titles or this style of short scattershot summarys. Also Paula has an announcment regarding Balck Friday and Small Business Saturday!

"Crossover" Image: Superheroes "crossover" from a comic book into the real world. Lots of meta and socio-political commentary as well.
"La Diabla" Albatross": Another fantastic character and design from Eric Powel! It's just too bad we had three or four characters tell an origin story for La Diabla. Each origin is interesting but I felt the pacing of the book suffered, since every few pages the story would essentially start over.
"Origins" Boom: I was really excited for this book, it looks super cool. Weird face mask/breathers and strangely familiar flora dot the pages. Resulting in a beautiful post apocalypse.
"Wolverine: Black, White, and Blood" Marvel: A sweet mostly monochromatic anthology title with a rotating cast of creative teams. The second story is by far my favorite, followed by the final tale, and the opener was something of a snore. Which shouldn't be possible with Logan fighting some sort of snow beast! Is it Wendigo, Sasquatch, or a random snow monster? Could one of our X-Men X-Perts let me know?
