Prejudged! 06.02.10Posted: June 2, 2010
Welcome back to a special edition of Prejudged! This week we look at indie graphic novel releases from big name creators. These types of releases allow these creators get back to their roots and experiment with new ideas that have branched out of working in the mainstream comic book industry.

TK favorite Stuart Immonen, along with his wife Kathryn, brings us this tale set in two timelines.
During World War II the Nazis pillaged much of Europe’s great art collections. Museum curator Ila Gardner and SS officer Rolf Hauptmann are forced by circumstances to play out an awkward and dangerous relationship in a public power struggle. Moving Pictures unfolds along two timelines which collide with the revelation of a terrible secret, an enigmatic decision that not many would make, and the realization that sometimes the only choice left is the refusal to choose.

A tragic Super Hero tale as seen through the eyes of those closest to them, from the mind of Hellboy artist John Arcudi.
After a mysterious disaster, a young man named Eric finds that he has just as mysteriously developed extraordinary abilities. He starts out trying to help people, but his solitary position in the world isolates him in ways no ordinary human could understand. This original graphic novel written by John Arcudi (B.P.R.D., WEDNESDAY COMICS) charts the arc of Eric’s evolution from man to…something else, as seen through the eyes of his family and his best friend, Sam.

Meet the world’s first superhero/prostitute. Once again, Garth Ennis screws with your head and the genre, with the spectacular art of Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti.
Reintroducing the outrageous story of THE PRO in a paperback version of the deluxe hardcover edition. Just when you think GARTH ENNIS has gone too far, just when you thought it was safe to walk the streets, just when you thought no one would go near the idea of the world’s first superhero prostitute… here comes THE PRO! Plus, in “The Pro Meets the Ho,” our plucky heroine faces a super-powered “soiled dove” whose powers of perversion exceed the Pro’s own!
See you guys next week!
