Hot Off the Press!

This week’s highlights, with commentary from the NFNT gang:

Captain Harlock: Space Pirate – the Complete TV Series (Eastern Star)

Jenny: I’ve watched the first couple of episodes of Captain Harlock and would love to see the rest.  It’s soooo seventies, but in the best way.  Classic, fun, involving storytelling.  Also, the sound effects are an unintentional hoot, with electric doors sounding like growling stomachs and Harlock’s eyes flashing with the the same *pshing* sound usually used for flying mecha brandishing their laser swords at one another.  What cheeze!  Awesome.

Helter Skelter: Fashion Unfriendly (Vertical, 9781935654834)

Caitlin: I’m really intrigued by the idea of beauty industry horror – I’ll be keeping an eye out for this one!

PandoraHearts17

Pandora Hearts Volume 17 (Yen Press, 9780316248099)

Jenny: Recent revelations leave me eager to see how the shocked characters will adjust.  These last few volumes have been one gasp after another!

Science: a Discovery in Comics (NBM, 9781561637508)

Snow: I really enjoyed Science: a discovery in comics. Not quite as much as I liked Philosophy: a discovery in comics, but it was still pretty darn good.
