Godland

I always get the feeling when reading Joe Casey that he must be the coolest guy in any room he's in. I still feel oddly smug that I can claim to have been of fan back when he was just doing fill-in issues of Cable. I've just finished the third volume of Godland, and this is probably the best thing he's written since the early demise of Automatic Kafka.

This book just showcases the author's love of Jack Kirby, and glorifies everything the King of comics accomplished, both good and bad. And if Casey's writing wasn't enough of a draw, there's Tom Scioli's art as well. Every panel literally crackles with energy (thanks to another Kirby tribute). This is just a great book.
