Coming This Week: "You Don't Pay Hookers For The Sex, You Pay Them To Leave"

This week seems to be full of reliable favorites. Daytripper #5 (DC/Vertigo) marks the halfway point for the series. For me, this was initially a tough sell, but I quickly learned to love the lack of a traditional storytelling structure and surrender to the lack of typical character arcs. I'm always curious to see if the style we've seen to date will be sustained or if there is some dramatic twist in store. Either way, the ruminations on life and the paths taken and not taken are very enjoyable, due in no small part to the fantastic art and coloring. DMZ #52 (DC/Vertigo) continues to explore the literal and figurative fallout of the last arc, with Matty wandering the city looking to reinvent himself. Over at The House of Ideas, I found the first issue a little on the talky side, but I'm looking forward to the continuation of this arc with writer Antony Johnston on Daredevil #506 (Marvel). My heart really belongs to Wasteland, which is surely a more personal work, but new spins on ol' hornhead are always welcome. Last on the radar screen this week is a big one, it's the Bodyworld HC (Pantheon). It's Dash Shaw's latest project, which I believe is still available as a webcomic, but I'm partial to the tangible, so this should be a blast. If it's anything like his last book, it'll be dense and fun, certainly worthy of some in depth analysis.

Ha-ha! Your nod to Daytripper's coloring didn't go unnoticed. :)
