Aftermath Magazine #1 by Elijah Brubaker, Retail $6 Wholesale $3. Digest size, 36 pages, black and white.

Brubaker is one of the best comic storytellers of his generation, and I'm very excited that he's begun a new ongoing self published mini comic. This is the first issue, and it's perfect, a Barbarian comic that captures the feel of breaking open a classically told comic with none of the thrill coming from nostalgia. Lots of people try to make the perfect 'comics' comic, but this one achieves where others fall short.
