Hail Gatherers! We are now in the middle of June and here is yet another installment of my picks of the week! Whether from the convenience of your own computer or in the service of your local comic book store, there are gems like these to be obtained! So let’s see what this week’s recommendations are!

My first pick goes to Steam Wars: Princess Legends #1, written and drawn by Rod Espinosa. This is a definite must for those who enjoyed the traction gained by the Steam Wars franchise with a new installment devoted to the amalgamation of science fantasy and the steampunk genre!

“Long ago in ANOTHER galaxy farther away…Rod Espinosa, the creator of Courageous Princess, strikes back, bringing a new hope with a tale of stalwart steampunk sovereign! The empire has sent its best assassins to kill the last of the warriors of light. But they are in for a rude surprise when they take on one light warrior too many!”

My second pick is the Hot Dog Taste Test Hardcover, written and drawn by Lisa Hanawalt. It is an ideal parody piece that satirizes trends within pop culture in general and is the perfect thing to have along for a laugh or two or three! Available from https://www.drawnandquarterly.com/.

“Hot Dog Taste Test serves up Lisa Hanawalt’s devastatingly funny comics, saliva-stimulating art, and deliciously screwball lists as she skewers the pomposities of foodie subculture. From the James Beard Award-winning cartoonist and production designer/producer of Bojack Horseman, Hot Dog Taste Test dishes out five-star laughs as Hanawalt keenly muses on pop culture, relationships, and the animal in all of us.”
