Phil’s Reviews — Stuff I Bought #207

Casanova: Avaritia #2 (of 6) — Writer: Matt Fraction;  Art: Gabriel Ba What if you worked for a multiversal spy organization and had to go around blowing up alternate realities where the Nazis had taken over? What if, having gotten tired of destroying entire timelines, you realized that just killing the Hitler of each one — before he took power and became “Hitler” — would work instead? What if, having killed a bunch of those alternate-timeline young Hitlers (who, after all, hadn’t done anything crazy or wrong yet, and were mostly just creative-but-failed artists scuffling to get by), you started … Continue reading

Phil’s Reviews: Stuff I Bought #195

Hate Annual #9 — Creator: Peter Bagge This doesn’t come out that often, but it’s always a pleasure to read, and a comfort to know that Bagge is still out there, chronicling the continuing adventures of Buddy and Lisa and their respective families (and that they’re all just as screwed-up and oddly compelling as always). Unlike a few of the recent issues, this one focuses almost all of its time on the key characters, making it even more of a find; as a link to the best of the ’80s and ’90s indy scene, and a reminder of just how … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #11 By Dan!

This was a shortened week, so forgive me for this rush.  Just means I’ll be cramming in sarcasm by the boatload! My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Jonah Hex #62 Writers: Justin Gray Jimmy Palmiotti Artist: Eduardo Risso This issue was so very pretty.  Risso has his distinct style that just worked perfectly for this issue.  It’s amazing to me that it’s taken 62 issues for him to get involved in the Hex mythos.  Hell, it’s amazing that this title has lasted 62 issues.  But it’s been all about the writing team.  Gray and Palmiotti have … Continue reading
