Three on Thursday

After the load of comics I got last week, this week was rather slow for me. But the three comics I got were all wonderful.

Black Magick 4
This is worth it for Nicola Scott's art alone, but we get to read Greg Rucka's story, too. Ro enlists the aid of her fellow witch and friend Alex to help her solve the mystery of the man who tried to kill her, while death of a killer turns out to be murder, not suicide. And we just know all this is connected somehow. I'm not the biggest fan of the supernatural genre, but in the right hands, it can be fun, and the hands of Rucka and Scott are most capable.

Black Canary 7
Things just got surreal. It turns out Ditto is sentient sound made physical and she's brought the elements together, including Dinah and the music group, to fight Ditto's "people" who/that view her as a threat because she has more abilities than they do. Or something like that. Wu's art continues to impress and Fletcher seems determined to mine Dinah's Canary Cry for all it's worth. I can honestly say I don't think I've ever read a superhero book quite like this. It's fun and different.

Saga 33
No Hazel, no Marko, no Alana, and yet, still awesome and entertaining as we catch up with Upsher and Doff, our intrepid journalistic duo. When they learn the Brand -- who had cursed them to keep them from telling the story of Marko, Alana, and Hazel -- is dead, they decide to get back to reporting the story, and that means tracking down Marko, Alana, and Hazel. And things, as they tend to do, get complicated. I can't wait for the next issue.
