Citizen Rex : A new comic series by Gilbert and Mario Hernandez
I didn't know about this... and it's on issue 2 already! Luckily they had both issues in Dave's Comics in Brighton, and thank heavens... as it's holy fucking freaking awesome!
Picking up the first issue and turning it's pages also reminded me just how beautiful an object the floppy, stapled comic book is... at least when it contains good work. It's just the right weight and size, both high and low art, disposable yet collectible, and I was able to read the first issue in 15 minutes while sitting in the park. How can this format have almost disappeared??
There's an interview with Mario and a preview of issue 1 at Comic Book Resources.
