This is not a comic book. I don't know what it is...or, rather, there's not yet a word in the language for this new thing. The Chomsky-quoting politics annoy me a bit, but the graphic design of this comic book is going to make waves that won't settle down for decades. This is something entirely new - full page, double page spreads, no frames, infographics and footnotes sprinkled across the page. Footnotes and cynical asides from the author scattered here and there. Distressed logos, ink spattered pages, a look like USA infographics took a bunch of crystal meth and then swallowed three dozen cutting edge web-2.0 websites. I really can't rave about the artwork here enough. And the writing! Even though I can't stand the politics (and Jonathan Hickman tries to distance himself from them, but I'm not swallowing that disclaimer 100%), he's taking big bold steps in a way that I haven't seen since "V for Vendetta". Wow. Go buy this. Now.

Honestly I can't recommend this series enough. Johnathan Hickman has all the signs of being one of comics best new writers. In Nightly News we get a fun, edgy story about a cult of assassins out to kill news reporters, and that is only the beginning. There are so many amazing things in this graphic novel from a very original art style to the research done into the news industry, to the just plain amazing writing in this book. Honestly, buy this book You'll be happy you did
