Sexy Spies, Kids Trained to Kill and Other Kinds of Comic-Book Love

When's the right time for a kid to learn how to shoot a sniper rifle? What's your kid up to when you're not looking? Is the spy agency's secretary really just a secretary? Comic books can answer these questions. Thank God.

The answers for the queries posed above come inside Zero #2, Saga #15 and Velvet #1, all discussed in the video above. Kotaku bossman Stephen Totilo and I talk about these recent releases and how they feel different from the superhero fare that their creators made their names on.

Here's the rundown of comics discussed this episode:

Velvet #1 by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting Zero #1 by Ales Kot and Michael Walsh Zero #2 by Ales Kot and Tradd Moore Saga #15 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

What have you read that's tickled your fancy? What are you looking forward to? Can anyone help us pronounce these creators' names? Chime in the comments below!


    - I can't wait for the next issue of Velvet!! If you're into the spy genre definitely check it out! :)

    I've never had the patience to follow individual issues, I'm quite content to grab a trade every 6 months.
