Above him there was now nothing but the sky – the lofty sky, not clear yet still immeasurably lofty, with gray clouds gliding slowly across it. “How quiet, peaceful, and solemn; not at all as I ran,” thought Prince Andrew — “not as we ran, shouting and fighting, not at all as the gunner and the Frenchman with frightened and angry faces struggled for the mop: how differently do those clouds glide across that lofty infinite sky! How was it I did not see that lofty sky before? And how happy I am to have found it at last! Yes! All is vanity, all falsehood, except that infinite sky. There is nothing, nothing, but that. But even it does not exist, there is nothing but peace and quiet. Thank God! …” (Leo Tolstoy, going all emo, from War and Peace)
This is one of the few times not reading Previews comes back to bite me.* I loved the first volume of Brandon Graham’s digest sized black and white comic. Now it’s a single issue series from Image. A re-order may be in order.
*Reasons I don’t generally read Previews are included in AC’s list of new comics. They include the fact that Kevin Smith’s writing another Batman comic and the Red She-Hulk variant cover. I kinda wish I’d never known those existed.
EDITED BY BRIAN TO ADD: Don MacPherson has a great piece on King City’s upcoming release from Image Comics here.
