ECBC: Comics recommendations by “Doctor Vince”! 12/18/17

“Doctor Vince” is a rocket scientist by day, and an EC Book Club (ECBC) moderator by night! Darth Vader vol 1: Vader is the featured book at our next ECBC meeting.

Here are the comics and graphic novels that caught his attention in this month’s Previews (in addition to his usual pull list, and EC’s picks this month!). To ensure that you get these books when they arrive, please call the store at 727-398-2665 or email our Books & New Comics Merchant at, to reserve a copy!

From the Previews Catalog #351, December 2017 (for books arriving mainly in February 2018)…


I don’t know if this painting is in the new book or not, but it is a good example of Davis’ talents as an Artist

Why Art (page 350) – Eleanor Davis’ artwork “balances quirky, colorful illustration with awkward and sometimes eerie comic strips and paintings.” How To Be Happy, a prior collection of her short stories, was a beautiful amalgam of magic realist science fiction plots in service of allegorical morality plays. It was one of the best things I read all year, and it makes me hungry for this new collection.  ($14.99)




All New – All Different

X-Men Red #1 (Marvel Previews pages 2-5) – Its been a while since I checked in on the X-Men but this new series by Tom Taylor (writer) and Mahmud Asrar (artist) about a Jean Grey led X-team looks to be worth giving a try. From the descriptions I’ve read it sounds like just the kind of “by-any-means-necessary” mutant resistance that we could use a little bit more of in these modern times.  ($4.99)
