A wizard has appeared in present-day New York! His name is Wizord, and he’s here to save us all from dark magical forces bent on our destruction. He’s the best wizard of all time! Or…he’s not, and he’s lying to everyone, and secretly is the dark magical force, but wants to hang out in our world for a while because it’s so much nicer than the hellhole he comes from. Secrets, and spells, and talking koalas—CURSE WORDS is a gonzo dark fantasy from CHARLES SOULE (Daredevil, Letter 44, Star Wars) and RYAN BROWNE (GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS).
Image Comics has this great program named “Image Firsts” in which they reprint first issues of books that are about to go to TPB or are doing well enough that they think they can grab a larger audience by practically giving away the first issue. It’s a clever idea that Marvel is also doing with their “True Believer” books, but I’ve actually not found anything that was of interest to me yet from all the Marvel $1 comics, yet with the Image ones, I think I’m up to 5 or 6 different series that I would have never tried that I think I’m going to buy collections of.
The first that I’ve bought from is Curse Words, which has a familiar story of someone being sent somewhere to destroy a place or person, only to fall in love with said place/person and defending it against the powers that sent them there in the first place. What makes this particular story unique is that there’s a talking koalas named Margaret, there’s a great backstory and the main story moves in a pretty rapid pace, no filler content here! Another reason is that these trades were pretty cheap, just $10 each!
