Instead of fake awards, and highlighting news for the past year, which seemed to consist almost entirely of people complaining online about one thing or another. Instead of trying to come up with lists of things that I enjoyed, which will most likely embarrass me to look at in a few years, I'm going to hit on a few things from the past year that I thought were worth looking back on with some fondness.
So, there are comics that really connect with a reader not because they're entertaining, or drawn well, or because the characters are interesting, but because they are about something more personal and intimate. Kim & Kim: Love Is A Battlefield looks to be one of those books.
Last year, Kim & Kim was probably my favorite new series, and maybe my favorite series for the year. The dynamic between the lead characters was engrossing and after the fourth issue, I was left wishing I could get more of this fantastic comic. If you felt like me, then you're just as excited that there's a new Kim & Kim series coming out. Love Is A Battlefield promises all of the things that made the debut series so good, and letting us experience the lives of these bounty hunters a little more.
Kim & Kim is the latest series from Black Mask Studios that impresses us. The first issue stood out due to it's fun tone and a willingness to show the characters just being real. We'll definitely have a review of this issue later. For now, we hope you are satisfied with the preview pages Black Mask sent us. We are warning you, that the press release does have some profanity in it.
Black Mask Studios sent us a preview of next week's Kim & Kim #1, which is part of a huge push of new titles that they're making this year. There looks to be a lot of anticipation for this title, so seeing it arrive in the inbox was a real treat. How does it live up to the anticipation?
