    The Nightly News is a wonderfully meta comic book for a wonderfully meta age. It's dense and thoughtful, combining a sort of distorted film feel with an interesting surreal background. Creator Jonathan Hickman presents a comic that seems to attack everything it sees, painting a broadly satirical brush on excesses of every type. Whether it's a Senator meeting with a lobbyist, an arrogant New York Times reporter in a bar, or a meeting of the terrorists, all of the characters are weird, bizarre, and funny in interesting ways. Some of the scenes seem a bit obvious to me - look, a Senator on the take! - but most of the comic is wonderfully unique and intriguing. Read Full Review
