Today at ComicsAlliance, I’m celebrating this week’s release of Jack Staff v.4 and The Weird World of Jack Staff #1 with an all-new installment of Comics We Love!
If you’ve been reading the ISB for a while, you’ve probably heard me go on and on about how much I love Paul Grist’s work in general and Jack Staff in particular, but for the newcomers among you, I’ll put it this way: Jack Staff comes out once, maybe twice a year. It does not feature Batman. It is my favorite comic book.
The first trade, Everything Used To Be Black and White, is about as close to perfect as super-hero comics get, and has my highest possible recommendation to anyone who likes stuff that’s awesome. But if you need more convincing, then head over to CA and read the article, where I do my best to articulate just what it is that makes it so good. Which was difficult, because I had to try really hard to not just say “I’m totes crushin’ on Becky Burdock.”
