Robot 6 with Plums
It's been a while since I wrote a Robot Review that wasn't also a Gorillas Riding Dinosaurs column, but I did this week. GRD is a column about adventure comics and Marjane (Persepolis) Satrapi's Chicken with Plums isn't that. I call it a murder mystery in the review, but it's not a thriller. It's deeper than that. And far more touching.
It does have Azrael in it though and he doesn't whine once about not having Batman's respect.
10. The Wind So good. The Wind uses the isolation of pioneer life to create a scary, atmospheric, Western horror. It's beautifully ...
