They don’t call ‘em “graphic novels” for nothing.

28%2Bdays%2Blater They dont call em graphic novels for nothing.Publisher BOOM! Studios usually sends review copies of their entire frontlist — kids’ and grown-ups’ comics alike — which means we get everything from Wall-E and Cars to Pale Horse and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?. Cindy snatched up The Muppet Show, a series she remembers fondly from childhood, but as a zombie fan I’m excited for the adult-geared 28 Days Later: The Hot Zone. (Who hunts zombies in a Catholic schoolgirl skirt? I’m just sayin’.)

cold%2Bspace They dont call em graphic novels for nothing.What I’m really looking forward to is the Samuel L. Jackson–authored Cold Space. Starring Samuel L. Jackson Mulberry, “a wisecracking, butt-kicking, on-the-run-outlaw [who] crash lands on a hostile planet,” looks like it’ll be either awful or awesome. Knowing Samuel L. Jackson (of Snakes on a Plane fame/infamy), it’ll likely be a bit of both.
