Review: Starve #1

Published by: Image Comics Written by: Brian Wood Art by: Danijel Zezelj For those of you who follow the antics of the gang here at Graphic Novice on Twitter you know that Nickel and I argue about comics… a lot (I blame his Canadian-ness or perhaps his insane love of Marvel’s Civil War).
