Welcome back, Negative Burn — you were missed.
One of the best anthology series of the 1990s returns with all new collections from Image Comics and Desperado Productions, starting with this slightly confusingly named Winter 2005 edition (it being June and all).
But no matter what it’s called, it’s what’s inside that counts and that is some terrific work by some great creators— Kurt Busiek, Phil Hester, Erik Larsen, Jim Mahfood, Evan Dorkin and B. Clay Moore to name a few.
What Negative Burn does better than any other anthology is mix quirky little one-off stories with snapshots of some of the most underrated ongoing and limited series on the market today.
This issue contains some great familiar faces like Dorkin’s hilarious Milk & Cheese, Moore’s gritty Hawaiian Dick, the wildly unpredictable Mr. Glum from Larsen’s Savage Dragon and a prelude to Ron Marz and Luke Ross’ Samurai: Heaven And Earth limited series currently being released by Dark Horse Comics.
