The Ogre's Staff Picks (06/28/2017)

Do you need something new to read? Do not fret! Let us direct you. Here are the Ogre's Staff Picks.

Lazarus Vol 1

Gib's Pick

Forever Carlyle is a Lazarus.  A person who has been engineered to heal from almost any damage, up to and including death itself.  Her "family" is one of a few families that control the planet.  She is the general of their military forces, their assassin and enforcer, and an overall fascinating character.  Her struggle to do the right thing while obeying her family is central to the story.  Lazarus is equal parts political thriller and action movie, with a healthy dose of political commentary.  Lazarus is one of my favorite comics.

SAM ZABEL AND THE MAGIC PEN

SAM ZABEL AND THE MAGIC PEN HC

Lauren's Pick

A superhero cartoonist struggles to find his own artistic voice in this graphic novel by Dylan Horrocks. When Sam Zabel discovers a pen that creates new realities with every comic it is used to draw, he's pulled into a surreal world. Using this compelling story, Horrocks explores the morality of storytelling.

Unstoppable Wasp #1

The Unstoppable Wasp #1

Sarah's Pick

After a day with Ms. Marvel and Mockingbird, Nadia has decided to gather up the brightest young women around to form G.I.R.L.: Genius In action Research Labs.

Terror Assaulter: One Man War on Terror

Terror Assaulter: One Man War on Terror

Mike's Pick

Drenched in irony and overflowing with violence, action, hilarity, and more violence, Ben Marra's TERROR ASSAULTER: ONE MAN WAR ON TERROR is made for those looking for envelope pushing indy genre fare. Marra's deceptively stilted style belies a masterful grasp of pacing. He skewers and celebrates his influences while never forgetting to entertain. This book is not for the faint of heart and has remained one of my favorite works released within the last few years.

**Note: Please be aware that Terror Assaulter: OMWOT is written for a Mature Audience. If you ever have any questions on content, violence and/or sexual content, please feel free to message us or ask while you are in the store.
