comic for the week of 12/26/12.

Sticking to my word, I'm not going to talk about Amazing Spider-Man in this space. But I've been thinking about it a lot and talking about it in person with a few folks, so it might get its own entry sometime later. For now, just one comic during this holiday season.

Before Watchmen: Nite Owl 4 - A great conclusion to a good book. Nice to see a revelation about Nite Owl II, and cool to see this angle of the dissolution of he and Rorschach's partnership. I'd also be interested in learning exactly how much time is supposed to have passed since the events of Rorschach's book to this one. Loved the tie-ins with Dan and his weakness for women, as well as the notes on Hollis and Under the Hood. This book felt like the most completely circular of all the books that have finished already, which is a nice touch for the Watchmen line.

Again, I don't give out BOTW for one-book weeks, so go pick up something completely off the wall, give it a chance.
