JUSTIN’S PICK :: GRINDHOUSE: DOORS OPEN AT MIDNIGHT #1: Comics have a long-standing tradition of tastelessness, for better or worse. For better, EC Comics churned out some of the medium’s high watermarks in the 50s; for worse, see some of the small press books released in the 90s. But objectively, that freedom is what makes comics such an attractive creative endeavor. Alex de Campi‘s new Dark Horse series doesn’t sound very illuminating (first up: Bee Vixens from Mars, drawn by Chris Peterson, pitting a one-eyed sheriff’s deputy against a horde of alien seductresses!), but certainly – and more importantly – it will be entertaining. In a critical climate of mounting pretension, a book so pure in its mission is a welcome respite.
