Two weeks in a row! Told you I was back. Let's take a walk down the magical road paved with trades but try not to step on any of them!
Firstly a mention for a brilliant piece of Scottish culture out today. Saltire: Annihilation part 1. Published by Diamondsteel comics it is available in bookstores throughout the UK including Waterstones and Forbidden Planet (signing in FP Edinburgh today at 5pm) and on Amazon as well. Here's the official bio of the second book from Scotland's first super hero.....
The Dark Age, a desolate time.
A power grows to the south. A power bent on destruction...on annihilation.
Not human...not spirit or shadow. Unleashed, she will bring despair.
To protect the innocent, the guardians will stand once more...
As chaos reigns before a vengeful enemy he shall rise once more...
the Immortal Guardian of a Nation.

I shouldn't have to explain C&H to anyone that's on the Internet. This web comic phenomenon is without doubt my favourite nonsense available online and it brings whole new meaning to hitting the nail on the head. While there have been previous books out I think this is the first release in a trade format and would make a great addition to your shelf. I guarantee this will be the book you pull out most when you have 5 minutes to kill. As well as collecting a tonne of comics from the site it also contains 30 exclusive strips, a choose your own adventure and an introduction from Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian.

DC have been saved from another shitty week of releases by their Vertigo imprint republishing a decade old book but damn, what a book. Perhaps Saga is the first Brian K. Vaughan comic you have read? Now is the time to go back and check out his amazing title Y. Set in a world where every man has died except our protagonist. Y features great, likable characters, drama, action and monkey shit. Unlike a lot of other ongoing Vertigo titles of the time (I'm looking at you DMZ) it really holds its quality over the whole 10 volumes. This is the reprinting of he first two volumes in one, similar to what they have just done with Preacher. Collects #01-10
