Make a Connection in ‘The Names’ #8

The Names is probably Peter Milligan’s most cogent work to date, aided in no small part by artist Leandro Fernandez’s versatility and the fact that printing methods (and art standards) are up to their most minutely […]

Just beautiful art, this stuff.

Let’s Get Weird in ‘Batwoman’ #40!
