I almost sat down to start reading Rex Mundi, but ended up taking a detour on another book I'd been neglecting, Captain America. Basically I hadn't been reading it since Ed Brubaker started on it and I'd heard all the details like Red Skull dies, comes back (kinda), Bucky is the Winter Soldier etc...but this book still is an awesome read.
I really, really like Brubaker's style, much like in The Books of Doom he writes a gripping story that builds upon the established past in a fascinating way. Really diggin' it. Wish I'd been reading it all along but I guess there's something to be said for getting to read it all in one shot.
Pick up his 6 issue crime noir mini from Matvel called "Crimminal" (Issue #2 just came out)
And in November, he's starting an on-going with an old Marvel favorite "The Immortal Iron Fist".
Daredevil readers should be jazzed up for this one.
Bru is just too fucking hot right now.... but everything he's done over the last few years has been great! His stuff on Detective Comics and Catwoman, and now the Books of Doom, Daredevil, Captain America, Criminal, Uncanny X-Men, and lets hope, the upcoming Iron First, are all great!
