Solo #1 (January 8, 2016)

Today's Comic is Solo #1, from DC 2004.
In my daily Comic Reading Project, it isn't often that I check out modern comics. And it is even less often that I find one worthwhile. But Solo #1 was a delightful surprise.

DC published 12 issues of the anthology series, featuring works of its top artists of the day. Sometimes anthologies don't work, but this one does. It features works by Tim Sale. There are no earth-shaking mega-events that would serve as story boards for blockbuster movies. Rather, these are slice-of-life vignettes, like New Yorker stories with an O. Henry twist.
