Welcome, then, to the Panel Discussion
Dozen Quartet, where I pick out just-released or out-soon comics that I think are worth paying attention to. Ready? Then, let's meet the sequential art that'll be draining your wallet this week. Be sure to chime in with the books you'll be picking up or that you think everybody should be ready in the comments.
Before Watchmen: Minutemen #4
If you're going to pay attention to any of the cash-in bastard Before Watchmen series, this is the one. It doesn't try to over-explain the 1940s characters you first met in Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' classic superhero deconstruction. Instead, it shows them grappling with the secrets and consequences that plague their double lives in psychologically believable fashion. Writer/artist Darwyn Cooke brings the best of his naturalistic approach to a book that exceeds expectations. And, hey, one of the variants has a lovely Steve Rude cover.
