26. Shade the Changing Man: The American Scream
Writer: Peter Milligan Artists: Chris Bachalo and Mark Pennington

Writer: Mike Carey Artists: Scott Hampton, Chris Weston, James Hodgkins, Dean Ormston and Warren Pleece

One thought on “Books I’ve read, week seventeen”

  1. The Lucifer stuff has good books and great books and meh books. I only own about half of them, but I’ll read the rest once I’ve got some more money.
