This Decompressed is like turning up to a gunfight and discovering the dude's got two guns and you have to (er) dodge both bullets? I was originally going to do a sex metaphor, and thought better of it. Extrapolate for yourself. ANYWAY! Writer Sam Humphries has two comics this week, and I thought a compare and contrast could be interesting.

UNCANNY X-FORCE #1 with Ron Garney is a relaunch as part of the Marvel NOW initiative. SACRIFICE #4 with Dalton Rose isn't just creator owned - but actually self-published, moving towards its conclusion. How do the two experiences work? There's got to be something to talk about there. And lo and behold, there was.

You can buy both from your local comic shop, or online at digital comic shops (Here's X-Force's comixology page and here's Sam's page to point at all the places you can buy Sacrifice, online and off).

And you can find all the show-notes over here.
