Planet Named Desire #9 by Joe Marshall
Getting up to #9 in comics these days is no small achievement, and you can tell just from looking at this that Joe has his shit together. Itâ€™s artistically solid and the whole packaging just looks great. There are a few stories in here. The first, about a greedy monkey, is either about an old morality tale or it should be. Great story, and you can never go wrong with a monkey. The second is about an old rock and a tree and bunch of people trying to figure out what they can do with them. The third is the most moving of the bunch, about a bird thatâ€™s dying and trapped in the wall. Then thereâ€™s one last story that Iâ€™ll leave as a surprise because, hey, Iâ€™ve already convinced you to give this a shot, right? Seriously, I never have a problem with comics that are all about telling you to slow down and enjoy what you have, and this comic has all kinds of that. I donâ€™t know about the back issues (maybe he peaked with this one or something) but you canâ€™t go wrong with #9.
