Under the Comic Covers
47: Southern Bastards Vol. 1: Here Was a Man; The Wicked + The Divine Vol. 1: The Faust Act

This week Under the Comic Covers introduces two new titles... and although we don't bring you current with either, we go over the first volumes of both Jason Aaron and Jason Latour's Southern Bastards: Here Was a Man and Keiron Gillen and Jaime McKelvie's The Wicked + The Divine: The Faust Act. If you have not read either of these titles, run... don't walk... but seriously, run to whatever outlet you choose, but read these books. You will not be disappointed.

We don't have any listener mail to respond to this week... we are assuming you were shocked to hear we were covering two different books and simply didn't have the opportunity to catch up on two volumes with such short notice, but we respond to a couple of Facebook responses for The Wicked + The Divine and talk about a new Image Comics #1 in Top of the Stack. This week we discuss Reyn, the new fantasy adventure comic by Kel Symons and Nate Stockman... if you like monster killing action and farmers' daughters with large breasts, then you won't want to miss this book.
