Did you guys read this yet? Steve Niles & Fiona Staples had a mini series about a group of odd adventurers that's one of the best things Niles has written. It's from 2010 so the art is pre-SAGA but it's Staples again doing art/colors. It's fabulous. There's a tpb of the mini and IDW recently rereleased it as a Hardcover, packaging it with this year's MYSTERY SOCIETY SPECIAL. It's not Staples on art, but it's still surprisingly good.
Just got through it all. I thought the special was better than the series (not the art though obviously). Not that I disliked the series, I just felt that it was (well, would have been) stronger once the setup was out of the way, and they could just have BPRD-lite style adventures in pulp wacky-land.
Very sad it's not going any further, it was my kind of thing (in line with League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Atomic Robo, and Mignolaverse stuff).
