Review revue

The April 7 issue of The New York Review of Books devotes a sizeable chunk of space to reviewing Jonathan Lethem's comics-influenced Men and Cartoons, The Disappointment Artist and The Fortress of Solitude -- under the wonderful headline, "Welcome to New Dork" -- and Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood and Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return.

Meanwhile, Nashville City Paper sticks with the monthlies, tackling Ultimate Iron Man #1, Seven Soldiers #0, Seven Soldiers: Shining Knight #1, Battle Hymn #1, Livewires #1, Runaways #1, Queen & Country: Declassified Vol. 2 #1, and Solo #3 (Paul Pope).
