It's hard to read Trillium, to read Jeff Lemire and not think of dangers Beethoven faced during his early life, when those dangers may stolen him away, long before anyone ever knew to speak his name.

EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW


For WZW, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. never said “I have a plan…”


Could Beethoven, even in his deafness, have retained the memory of perfect pitch? Could his music be nothing more than the rigorous working out of an abstract calculus? A working out on a scale of genius far beyond any of us?

If you've missed out on the first two issues of Larfleeze, not to worry. Well, maybe worry a bit. Maybe go out and go find them, because you've really missed out on a secret treat.

EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW


If you’ve missed out on the first two issues of Larfleeze, not to worry… well, maybe worry a bit. Maybe go out and go find them, because you’ve really missed out on a secret treat. But if you’re worried about picking up with issue #3, not to worry. There’s an easy introduction to the current dilemma faced by our not-quite-so-intrepid protagonist, by way of (of all things, if you can imagine), postures, poses, places really.

There's a strange echo of Bruce Springsteen in where writer Justin Jordan seems to be leading the New Guardians…

EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW


“Put on your stockings baby, cos’ the night’s getting cold,” Bruce Springsteen’s lyrics from “Atlantic City,” a track from his inhumanly dark Nebraska album, haunt me still. But it’s Justin Jordan’s upcoming issue of Green Lantern: New Guardians that puts this lyric into strange and possibly far darker context.

"Fight Fire with Fire" is the first collection of the Team 7 title. It is an important book, because it answers two questions still lingering from the 90s, an era that saw a genuine revolution in comics publishing.

EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW


Who is Justin Jordan? Comic Vine can tell you. But you won’t need Comic Vine, you’ll discover him as the mind behind his creator-owned property the Luther Strode books, and more recently on writing detail for Deathstroke and Green Lantern: New Guardians, and of course, on the pages of Team 7. Justin is a good writer, but he is a young writer. And not yet having had a long career, is one of the crucial challenges for a book like Team 7.
