On Garth Ennis & Gary Erskine's "Archangel"
The fourth installment of "The Year In Comics" is now up at Sequart Publishing. It's concerned with Ennis and Erskine's wonderfully tender-hearted and touching Archangel. It's a story which doesn't just put a stake through the heart of the myth that war comics can't be emotional, heartwarming and entirely free of machismo. It also cuts off the legend's head and burns both parts of its body to ashes while it's at it. As I might have let slip there, I think the world of Archangel, and I hope you might consider popping over to Sequart - here - for the spectacle of a grown man trying not to repeat "It's brilliant and I got all misty-eyed" over and over again.
