Moon Knight #1 — Writer: Jeff Lemire;  Art: Greg Smallwood;  Colors: Jordie Bellaire The Unbelievable Gwenpool #1 — Writer: Christopher Hastings;  Art: Gurihiru with Danilo Beyruth Spider-Gwen #7 — Writer: Jason Latour;  Art: Bengal;  Colors: Rico Renzi Only two Marvel debuts this week — Moon Knight starts in a One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest setting, with its title character in an insane asylum, trying to decide whether the whole Konshu/superpowers thing is real, or just a symptom of his madness; considering that multiple personality disorder’s been hard-wired into his origin from the beginning, it’s probably a little of both. … Continue reading

Love and Rockets: New Stories #8 — Creators: Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez This yearly dose of new Hernandez Brothers’ work is always cause for celebration — very few creators can say they’ve been chronicling their creations’ lives for thirty years, aging them in real time (you’d have to go to daily newspaper strips like Gasoline Alley or For Better or for Worse to see anything similar, and neither of those is still publishing new material), and both brothers are still capable of tremendous storytelling. Gilbert’s the more operatic, as the many descendants of his Palomar character Luba follow film careers … Continue reading

It Came From the Back Room #51

Standard recap: I’m slowly going through AABC’s one-million-plus back-issue room, restocking the boxes on the sales floor and pulling stuff to sell as discount/overstock/special items (these are featured at the discount racks at the west end of the store for a couple of weeks after each post, and then go to the discount racks on the east end of the store for a few weeks, and then disappear into our warehouses, so get them while you can). I’m going through the alphabet backwards (don’t ask), and at my speed (even now in the summer, when I’m not teaching), this amounts … Continue reading
