What. The. What.
Stuff we’re psyched about today! The Sex Criminals trade, Katie Skelly (calicocomics)’s collected Margarine minis, and the Superior Spider-Man finale! We’re also digging Ms. Marvel #3, Stray Bullets Killers #2, and the first issue of the new Translucid. Good stuff!

Broken Frontier Staff Picks for April 16, 2014: Genesis, Hulk, Translucid, Operation Margarine & More -
"When Chris Pitzer picks up a title for his AdHouse Books imprint, you know it’s got to be worth a look. The latest addition is the collected and completed edition of Operation Margarine by Katie Skelly, a (relative) veteran of the alt-comics scene who’s been publishing the story as a series of lovely screenprint-covered mini-comics.
Skelly’s distinctive style mixes apparent simplicity and cuteness with a gritty eye for action and character. The story is your everyday mix of girls-on-the-run and Barthesian (?) cultural analysis, as Margarine (“rich girl runaway”) and Bon-Bon (“trouble tuff girl”) jump on a pair of motorbikes and hit the road, getting away from the mean streets of the city to the almost alien desolation of the desert. Complications ensue.”
What can I say? I’m a taste-maker. Or something.
