I reviewed Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Son of The Sun for Good Comics For Kids. That's the first collection in Fantagraphics' new Don Rosa Library, collecting the work of the second best Disney duck artist. What makes this particular Rosa collection--and, I imagine, future ones--so fun and interesting is the amount of input and commentary from Rosa himself, something that couldn't really be don with the Carl Barks Library collection.

Then, over at Robot 6 this week, I had two pieces. The first is a review of two books featuring super men and wonder women in relationships: Charles Soule, Tony S. Daniel and company's Superman/Wonder Woman Vol. 1: Power Couple and Kurt Busiek, Brent Anderson and Alex Ross's Astro City: Victory. The second is a review of a handful of this week's Futures End one-shot specials that don't really tie-in to The New 52: Futures End weekly series, like, at all. (That's probably either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on what you're expecting; if all you're expecting is a 3D lenticular cover, your expectations will definitely be met, maybe eve exceeded).

And, finally, I have a short little feature on Vegas-based cartoonist Gilbert Hernandez and his (excellent) new original graphic novel, Bumperhead, in this week's issue of Las Vegas Weekly.
