One Week One Comic: Daughters of the Dragon

Alex: Every Wednesday on Twitter, I pick a comics issue that caught my eye and do an illustrated thread of little observations and stuff I enjoyed about it. It’s called #oneweekonecomic, and I’m collating each thread into its own blog post.

This time out, we’re looking at Jed MacKay/Travel Foreman/Joey Vasquez’s DAUGHTERS OF THE DRAGON: DEEP CUTS, originally released as ‘digital originals’, in print for the first time with this collection.

Some spoilers (mostly for cool moments) after the cut.

One Week One Comic: Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt #1

Alex: So, over the past month, I’ve started playing with something new on Twitter. Each week, I pick a comics issue that caught my eye and do an illustrated thread of little observations and stuff I enjoyed about it. There are a lot of problems with Twitter as a platform, though, so I thought I’d try collating those thoughts into blog posts. This is all very much in the experimental stages, so let us know what you think.

This time out, it’s Kieron Gillen/Caspar Wijngaard/Mary Safro/Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou’s PETER CANNON: THUNDERBOLT #1. Spoilers follow after the cut. In the case of this particular comic, pretty enormous spoilers.
