Carpe Diem - I Hate Mondays TP - A Preview

This Wednesday, September 3rd, sees the release of the collected edition of Carpe Diem: I Hate Mondays by writer W.H. Rauf and illustrated by artist Rhoald Marcellius. This trade-paperback collects all of the previous Carpe Diem comics found exclusively in Titan Comics' anthology series A1.

Get ready to meet Carpe Diem: the world's seven greatest, color-coded secret agents (one for each day of the week, though everybody hates Mondays)! When danger rears its ugly head, it’s up to this motley band of super spies to issue the bloody-knuckled makeover. Whether they’re dishing out justice to satanic chefs, kicking giant kaiju butt, or saving the world from killer clowns, it’s all just other day’s work for these half-baked hired heroes.

Described as Scott Pilgrim meets The Dirty Dozen by the publisher, I would liken it more to a cross between Paul Cornell's Knight and Squire and Garth Ennis' Adventures Of The Rifle Brigade. Whatever colorful comparison you make, Carpe Diem: I Hate Mondays is chock full of everything you could hope for in a comic. I haven't laughed so hard at a book in a long time and I'd recommend it to everyone.
