Wednesday is New Comics Day

loveless1.jpgThis week's comic to look for is Loveless #1 by Brian Azzarello and Marcelo Frusin.

Loveless is a new series from DC's Vertigo line that hopes to kick up some dust around the Western comic, a genre that never dies but also hasn't exactly sold many comics since cowboy films were popular back in the 1960's. Writer Brian Azzarello plans to bring a brutal film noir approach to the book, something he does very well on a monthly basis in his great tough-guy crime epic 100 Bullets. His goal for the series is to show how bad things affect good people. Set in the Reconstruction era it introduces a Confederate soldier named Wes Cutter, believed dead, who returns home from the war, looking for his wife, and finds that his home is not how he remembered it.

Azarello and Frusin have collaborated before on another Vertigo comic Hellblazer. Frusin's liberal use of shadows make him an excellent partner for Azarello's dark and moody stories. Azarello promises to be relentless and unforgiving in his handling of this story as it unfolds over the next few years.

Comics are good.

Too bad I burned my original mint copies of Star Wars, Logan's Run and some older Superman stuff back in '84.

Was that wrong?
