Most emotional month in recent memory…
New year! Fucking finally. I’ve never looked forward to seeing a change in the digits of an year this much. Also, snow weekend basically made my whole month so a good enough January all around.
LIST OF NEWSWORTHY
I almost did a list about comic recs instead, but seeing how half of my current favorite ones don’t even have their first volumes out, I thought this would be better and a way to motivate myself. I tried to pick series from the ones I already own however, I did include a couple of recs as well (I will eventually buy them so they count, right).
When I was doing research for my top ten Tuesday post on artsy covers back in 2014, I discovered a flood of amazing covers all designed by Will Staehle. From a bold and bright approach to covers to a subtler take, it didn’t take long for me become a fan of Staehle’s work so here are ten covers that I can’t get enough of.
