Air #9

Written by G. Willow Wilson
Art by MK Perker

I think this might be the best issue of Air yet, and would have been a much better choice than issue #7 to be the one-dollar, heavily promoted one.

In this issue, Blythe goes back to work, has to give over the Hyperprax device, helps a man find his wife, dodges Etesians, chills with Amelia Earhart some more, and talks about synchronicity with a man in ballet tights. If more people sampled that for a dollar, how could they not become committed to the title?

Really, this issue gives me a lot of faith that the book has the potential to be one of Vertigo's best. Wilson seems to have the rhythms of a monthly comic down now, and Perker's art is improving with every issue.

If you aren't reading this yet, go buy this issue.
