Why read it?: Skottie Young is currently one of the pre-eminent cartoonists on the planet. Gaining recognition on Marvel’s critically acclaimed adaptations of L. Frank Baum’s Oz books, Young is now putting those skills to use on a creator owned book with a truly vicious sense of humour that will have you laughing out loud. Ultra violence has never looked so imaginatively delightful or cute.
