I love Greg Rucka’s work.  Comic Bento sent me what was actually the second volume in his Stumptown series, explaining that the first volume wasn’t needed to enjoy the work.

Bento Review: Ninjak: Weaponeer

NINJAK_001_COVER-A_LAROSA1

Comic Bento’s latest box came with the theme of “powerless,” or when people with little or no power take on the powerful.  I was surprised to find there were no Marvel trades this time around, but the selection I did get looks very promising.

Gabbing Geek Tom Recommends v2I was thinking recently about how maybe we here at Gabbing Geek should consider a regular recommendation to readers along the lines of similar storylines or genre or something, and the first thing I thought of was Batman.

Now, to be fair, the first thing I think of in many instances is Batman.  What should I have for lunch today?  Batman.  Where did I leave my keys?  Batman.  Why is Watson such a perv?  Batman.
