A lot of interesting releases this week. A few things coming to an end. The Kitchen is almost to the close with issue 7. I've really enjoyed this mini from Vertigo and wait anxiously wondering how they will bring this story to a close. As with all mob stories, expect a gruesome end but who knows! From mob stories, we know I've been reading mini Curb Stomp and fallen absolutely in love with the story and the art. Newcomer Devaki Neogi is a name you are going to want to remember for the future as this story comes to an end with the release of issue four this week.

Where some stories end, others begin. Image Comics debut's two new series that have caught my eye, Alex Kott lends his talents to the team on Material. A collection of snippet from the lives of very different people. The cover looks like a protest. I'm intrigued. In addition, Image releases Sons of the Devil (review coming). The product of a successful kickstarter, this psychological horror follows Travis, a man who finds that his familial ties link him to a cult.

Something new and fun, which takes me back is Marvel's M.O.D.O.K Assassin #1. The story is written by Chris Yost (New X-Men, X-23:Innocence Lost), pencilled by Amilicar Pinna (GREEN LANTERN: RISE OF THE THIRD ARMY. SUPERMAN: H'EL ON EARTH). This looks like a little bit of fun. I'll be taking a look for sure.

One of the graphic novels I've been looking forward to most this year is Andrew MacLean's ApocalyptiGirl: An Aria for the End Times. You can read my interview with Andrew HERE. It really is one of the best books I've read this year. I adore the artwork and suddenly need a kitty to name JellyBeans.
