Crazy Food Truck GN 2 – Review

Despite the ‘Crazy’ right there in its title, Crazy Food Truck, by this second volume, really does seem to have settled into an easier, exploratory, travelogue-style story.

Alex Ross‘ Fantastic Four – Full Circle wastes no time blowing minds. From the first panel, it’s clear that Ross’ grip on comic book storytelling is stronger and more assured than ever.
