REVIEW: 'Space Bastards' #1 by Joe Aubrey, Eric Peterson, Darick Robertson, and Diego Rodriguez

  Acclaimed artist Darick Robertson (The Boys, HAPPY!) joins writers Eric Peterson and Joe Aubrey as they unleash the galaxy's most vicious and depraved...parcel couriers? Poor David S. Proton. A meek, unemployed accountant desperate for money, he joins the Intergalactic Postal Service, paired with Manny Corns, a.k.a. "The Manicorn," a sardonic brute who thrives on the competition provided by the IPS. But delivery is mercenary for these intergalactic dispatchers-payment goes solely to whoever fulfills the delivery, making every run a comically violent free-for-all between the most ruthless degenerates in the cosmos. Stand back, Lobo! Make way, Han Solo -- here come the Space Bastards!

QUICK REVIEW: Finger Guns #1 introduces us to two teens who discover they have the power to change people’s emotions by merely “shooting” them with their finger guns. It's an interesting superpower but the real strength of this debut is the relatable and grounded aspects of these kids' lives. Each with their own family troubles, the two find a kinship that feels magnetic and essential. It's the type of storytelling that transcends genres. It's a story of human yearning for friendship and understanding that has gone neglected.  The superpowers, while clever, is just the common attribute that drives these two characters together. The art is beautifully and clearly illustrated by Val Halvorson and Rebecca Nalty. Finger Guns is a fantastic debut that is both wondrous and melancholy full of heart and imagination.
