Xombi #1; John Rozum & Fraser Irving

Of the comics I've read so far this week, my favorite by a long shot was Xombi by John Rozum and Fraser Irving. Xombi was a DC Milestone comic from years ago that John Rozum also wrote and it was a favorite of mine at the time.

One doesn't have to have read the previous Xombi series to pick up on the new series, basically if you like Fraser Irving's art, wild concepts like a person who has nanomachines within him that allow him to create things that weren't there (my not very good explanation of Xombi's powers), and characters with names like Catholic Girl, Nun Of The Above, and Nun The Less, well you'll enjoy Xombi! I'm a little concerned about Fraser Irving's ability to do more than four issues in a timely manner (but I like to think he really cares about this title and is further ahead then he usually is) and this is such a niche title that will probably be under most people's radar, but I think that if the crazy ideas of issue one can be maintained with the next few issues, Xombi will get a great word of mouth buzz.

Xombi was my favorite Milestone comic. When Dewayne McDuffie was down here we spoke about a lot of the Milestone books. I remember telling him that if Xombi would have had Vertigo on the cover it would still be in print. Great book. The first issue of the original series was a true horror story.

Happy New Comics Wednesday 7/18/18 - Life of Captain Marvel, Magic Order #2 (we still have #1 too!), conclusion of Infinity Countdown, Justice League edition!

 Hope all of my friends going to the San Diego Comic-Con this week have a GREAT time!
