Today in Cool Stuff in the Mail: this gorgeous hardcover compilation of Jeff Smith’s scientist-turned-art-thief saga RASL. Our reviewer Etelka Lehoczky had this to say about RASL (and his nose) when the softcover version came out last year:

It’s drunk lightning. No, more of an Escherian stair step. Whatever you decide to call it, expect to spend a fair amount of the time you’re reading Jeff Smith’s RASL obsessing over the antihero’s nose. Smith’s dark tale of a dimension-jumping scientist, whose name is pronounced “razzle,” is relayed in a jaggy style that couldn’t be more different from that of the artist’s Pogo-esque epic Bone. And smack in the middle of almost every panel, like a squiggle of punctuation for this comic’s many idiosyncrasies, is RASL’s strange schnoz.
