It's never a good sign when a headless corpse turns up in an alley, but when it turns out that the head is still there and just invisible? That's when things start to get a little strange. That's how the story kicks off in Bad Medicine, the new series from Oni Press and the creative team of Nunzio DeFilippis, Christina Weir, Christopher Mitten and Bill Crabtree. A few weeks back, I wrote about h
Over the past few years, the writing team of Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir have been quietly producing some of the most solid character-driven comics on the market. They've done it everywhere, from independent OGNs to webcomics, and even a story that introduced TV's King Tut to the Batman comics. This week, they've te

As put forth in this funny yet also quite serious new comic, the truth is that Cooper was a highly valued government assassin possessed of metaphysical abilities that granted him access to a dark realm of consciousness shared by all mankind. But when Cooper went rogue, the famous airline hijacking was a clever plan to ensure that everybody in the United States would help the government track down their missing agent and his non-existent bag of money.
