Fantasy sand art based on a drawing the artist made when she was seven years old 3> -Jenn
Every bit the masterpiece you've probably heard it is if you have even a passing interest in the comic book medium, Alan Moore's mid 80's stint on Swamp Thing was a game changing run that altered the way people read and write comics.

Alden is one of those illustrators who I think of as "an artist's artist." His drawings and stories display such immense talent in humble, low-key ways that his work is almost easy to overlook. Don't do that! You'll be depriving yourself of one of the best new graphic talents of the decade. -Clark
Especially beautiful when he shuts the sound off and lets the motion go for pages. Sometimes he shuts the lights out also (then it's breathless...dark...) I don't want to say too much... shhh.... --Arlo

Nimona is a shape shifter. Mostly in the shape of a young punk of yore, she can become a dragon or a cat or anything else. She teams up with Lord Ballister Blackheart to do evil and fight against the Institution only to find out who the truly evil ones really are. This is a perfect comic--sincere, humorous, witty, subversive, meaningful, and surprising. - Steve
