Meanwhile, in Las Vegas...

It's mostly the color scheme and the dress-over-tights look, but the first scene of Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover's Bandette really reminded me of another caped and masked young person, here drawn by Damion Scott, I believe.

At any rate, I have a brief review of Bandette Vol. 1: Presto! in this week's issue of Las Vegas Weekly. It's a really great comic book, and I had a blast reading.

I was particularly impressed with the way Coover's art looked like something from a classic European comic album, rather than the work of the Colleen Coover I've most recently seen in American comics. It wasn't so great or so fun that it made me want to start following it online or anything—I'm probably always gonna prefer paper to the screen of my laptop—but thanks to Dark Horse's collection, the curious need no longer choose between reading it online or not reading it at all.

 I can't wait for the next one.
