Madame Xanadu Vol 02 Exodus Noir Written by Matt Wagner, Art by Michael Wm. Kaluta
Ok, I know I already reviewed the first volume of this one, and pretty recently really, but this is so good, I can’t let it pass by. The two volumes have drastically different art, but both are so excellent that this is now near the top of my “recommend to new readers” pile. Exodus Noir features 2 stories that are beautifully interwoven. We have the murder mystery set in 1940, and the tragic romance set in the days of the inquisition. Magic, love, passion and death. All told with some of the most eloquent layouts I have seen. I need to get a scanner hooked up one of these days so that I can post examples. In the meantime, you’ll have to just go out and buy this. It’s really that good.
