B.P.R.D.: Vampire #1 (of 5) — Writer: Mike Mignola; Art: Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon This sequel to B.P.R.D.: 1947 offers the return of the Brazilian twin brothers Ba and Moon (their last work was the magic-realist Vertigo mini-series Daytripper), and between their evocative art and Mignola’s well-staged, every-word-counts writing, this is one good-looking, creepy horror book. You really don’t need to know any more than that, so you? Young Avengers #3 — Writer: Kieron Gillen; Art: Jamie McKelvie with Mike Norton Another great writer/artist team (everybody’s read their two Phonogram series, right? The second one, especially? The one I … Continue reading
America’s Got Powers #1 (of 6) — Writer: Jonathan Ross; Art: Bryan Hitch Ross is the former British talk-show host who’s a big comics geek, and has dabbled in writing them before (Turf, about Prohibition-era vampires, came out a year or two ago). Here, he’s snagged Bryan Hitch as artist, which helps his cause considerably. The comic itself is nakedly commercial: it’s a mashup of J. Michael Straczynski’s Rising Stars (radiation from a mysterious meteor causes a bunch of kids whose mothers are exposed to it to be born with super-powers), America’s Got Talent (there’s a reality show wherein the … Continue reading
Saga #1 — Writer: Brian K. Vaughan; Art: Fiona Staples Vaughan’s last extended series was Y: The Last Man, so he’s got a reputation to uphold, and this debut issue does so nicely: it’s a fantasy/Star Wars/Romeo and Juliet mashup, with all the sprawl its name implies — but this first issue focuses very tightly on just two characters, and the third one they produce. It’s very well done, and Staples brings enormous talent to the drawing: she’s just the kind of artist I admire, able to work with small human expressions and double-page city-destroying splashes (with giant turtles added!) … Continue reading

I’m writing these on a Friday, whoa! Stuff on time! Let’s do this! My Top 5 (The 5 Best Comics of the Week) Amazing Spider-Man #655 Writer: Dan Slott Artist: Marcos Martin Yup, I’m on the bandwagon for this issue. It’s been going around the “internets” (as dear Dubya once said) that this is some big special fantastic issue, and holy crap it is. Look, all you need to know is that Dan Slott really loves writing Spider-Man and Marcos Martin draws the hell out of it. With the recent death of J. Jonah Jameson’s wife, this is a first … Continue reading
