Sometimes you just need a break from all the superheroes and movie adaptations in comics. That’s why I’m a big fan of Greg Rucka’s Lazarus over at Image Comics. It appears I’ve found a similar style book in that the focus is a family of power dealing with backstabbing and intrigue.

I love the characters Brian Wood writes in this story. Grace Briggs, the current matriarch of the Briggs family as her future ex-husband Jim is incarcerated, plays tough with the Feds and comes out on top. At least for now. Ellie and Caleb Briggs show just enough insight to see there’s something in the works between these two that benefits themselves and probably no one else. Sprinkled throughout are every day folks who go about their normal days while being effected by the moves the Briggs family makes.

One of my favorite characters outside the Briggs family is Daniel the Federal Agent. He’s clearly been taken advantage of, so there will most certainly be retribution in the future. But can he outsmart Grace? We’ll see. Or at least I hope we’ll see. Needless to say, I want to learn more about the Briggs clan.

I give Briggs Land #6, 3 our of 5 Nerd Skulls.

I'm a true child of the 80s from a small town near Cleveland, Ohio. My all time favorite topics are Star Wars, slasher films and Cleveland sports (despite the misery it causes). I narrowly avoided law school, instead choosing film school. I have been accused of being a walking IMDB, but I take it as a compliment!
