Hola, boys and girls, it's that time again for more ridiculousness with...the Comic Book Book Club! We've reached that golden number 10 and what a treat we have for you today. Our first book is "Invisible Kingdom #6", a Dark Horse publication (subprinted via Berger Books), written by G. Willow Wilson with jaw-dropping art from Christian Ward (not a surprise in our circles). (Interesting note: this is Karen Berger's imprint, who for the vintage heads will remember was running Vertigo in the '90s). Second, we go with another one of those marked-calender books: "Joker: Killer Smile #1" by the "Gideon Falls" team, writer Jeff Lemire and artist Andrea Sorrentino, with colors by Jordan Bellaire. We absolutely implore you to get both, but listen and hear us tell you why you should.For next episode, we're going all out: in anticipation of one of Marvel's big releases set for next year, we're going back to 2006 and covering Gaiman's "Eternals" book. I think it's a great way to acclimate yourself with the characters before the film comes out, so power through it with that spectacular art by freaking JOHN ROMITA JR. That's right: Neil Gaiman and John Romita, Jr. did a Marvel Cosmic book together and now the MCU is using it (fingers crossed). As always, let us know what you think!
