Decorum: Across the universe

When it comes to comic books, the older I get, the more I just want the nice pictures. I got certainly got Decorum purely for the art, because Mike Huddleston's work is just outstanding.

 There's some kind of story in there about planet killers and sexy assassins, but Huddleston's art is where it's at, man. Alien landscapes with weight and bite, devastating close-ups with emotional heft and the sharpest action scenes, all flying up against alien cultures, food and transport that we literally can't get our minds around.

Even though there have been many, many attempts, I just don't click with Hickman. His ideas are sound, his execution is strong, and I powerfully don't give a shit about any of it. But I am Huddleston for life after this series.
