    DigBoston and LeaguePodcast Comic Book Picks of the Week! August 3, 2011

    COMICS

    Adult comic book collectors will remember a magical time long ago where covers were wrapped in bags and holograms. This era was known as the 1990s. Relive the magic of inordinate amounts of pouches, gigantic guns and pursed lips from the polarizing Rob Liefeld and Walking Dead writer Robert Kirkman in The Infinite #1. … Speaking of big guns, Marvel is returning Frank Castle to clean up the scum of New York. With The Punisher #1, Greg Rucka (Batwoman, Queen and Country) returns to the comic book industry with a vengeance! … Tank Tankuro is the first robot to appear in Japanese comics! This pre-World War II manga was the progenitor for Astro-Boy and many more. Read a preview of the first English translation here. … Picks this week from LeaguePodcast.com.

    BOOK REVIEW! Exit Wounds by Rutu Modan 

    Exit Wounds by Rutu Modan

    Exit Wounds by Rutu Modan
    Exit Wounds is a cerebral, somber, and delicate journey set in modern day Israel.
    Superbly simple line work with sublime coloring denotes the everyday without ever being boring. Israel is an ancient place rife with violent bombings, but also a place for families to grow, travel, love, and of course grow apart. The characters are identifiable in the most common way, yet the story is set in another country. A taxi driver, a tall gangly giraffe of a lover, a missing father and doting aunts, uncles and mothers set the table of this unforgettable tale of love, loss, family, politics, and the spirit of life. This is one of the best comic stories I have ever read.
