She Has No Head! – Picks of the Week (1/22/14)

There were so many good books last week, guys!

Seriously, I did not even make it through my whole reading stack, and still I had too much trouble trying to pick just one to write about for this week’s column. So instead we’re going to do a tiny bit on several, including some gorgeous images. One of these books is actually NOT a pick, but I wanted to talk a little bit about why it skates so close to being a pick and then 2 panels at the end completely ruined the whole book for me. Very disappointed.

So let’s get to those books!

Batman 27 Bats and Gordon

Gorgeous work by Greg Capullo on Batman #27
