Superior Showcase: # 1

Writers/Artists: Nick Bertozzi, Mike Dawson, Dean Trippe
Publisher: Ad House Books
Published: 2006

Ad House is the boss of odd comics. Take Superior Showcase # 1. Three tales of maximum kookiness. The first tale, Super Mart is a mix of Clerks meets superheroes. The second Ace-Face has a superhero turned high school teacher forced out of retirement. Finally the last, Butterfly, has involves fighting ghosts and stuff.

I've been pretty impressed with AdHouse's selection of titles. They seemed to have found a nice niche in the comic world by focusing on weird, quirky, and accessible reads. The artwork is cool too. Take for instance the cover alone. Pretty cool right? That's right, it is. Deal with it.
