So I am really enjoying reading comics again. It was nice to start something new but also go back to something that I had gave up on in the past. You will  notice that these are both Image Comics, and that I will always look out for what they publish.

East of West is rather strong and mysterious and it took me quite a while to figure out what was going on. I enjoyed it and looking forward to reading future volumes.

Saga is bit of a different story. It is about two enemies who wish to escape a war and have just had their first child. It is a real struggle for survival book. From what I remember the overarching plot doesn’t really diverge much from this line and is why I sort of got bored and gave up.


So that’s another Comic Book Monday. I would highly recommend these books especially if you enjoy indie comics. If you have any comics you want me to check out or think I would enjoy then leave them in the comics!

That’s all folks!
