It was an interesting light(er) week, so I’ll probably frustrate some people with my picks. But that just means you’re reading, and we know I only do this for a reaction… Let’s do this! My Top 5 (The 5 Best Comics of the Week) Punishermax #11 Writer: Jason Aaron Artist: Steve Dillon The more I read this, the more angry I am at Ultimate Avengers for delaying this story art. Steve Dillon is a comic genius, and is one of (if not THE) best artists Marvel of DC has to offer. Add to that that Jason Aaron is transferring his … Continue reading
Let’s do this! My Top 5 (The 5 Best Comics of the Week) SpongeBob Comics #1 Writer/Artists: Various Yes I am currently watching SpongeBob; why do you ask? I was a little surprised by a couple of things. First, I’m surprised this comic exists. Second, I’m surprised this comic wasn’t made much sooner. Third, I’m surprised that it actually captures the fun of the ridiculous tv show that accompanies it. This is more of an anthology book with several stories throughout Bikini Bottom. At times bizarre, at times hilarious, it’s a pretty good representation of what the show normally offers … Continue reading
All right folks! It was a seriously huge week, so let’s get down to business! My Top 5 (The 5 Best Comics of the Week) Fantastic Four #587 Writer: Jonathan Hickman, Artist: Steve Epting I am shocked. I really have not cared about the Hickman FF run at all. I found it boring, pretentious and convoluted. Then the last six pages of this issue happened. I know that you’ve probably all heard about the death, but I don’t feel like spoiling it. Just know that it was in a super bad-ass take no prisoners, kicking and screaming kinda way, adding … Continue reading
The last reviews of the New Year! Don’t forget to come to the sale! Heck, why are you even reading this, go to the sale now! My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Flash #8 Writer: Geoff Johns Artist: Scott Kolins Kolins is completely in his element whenever he does a Rogue profile, as can be seen in this issue. Dealing with how the Reverse Flash came to be, Kolins is able to make every word that Johns puts on the page really come to life. The story itself is bizarre, and sounds like an idea that … Continue reading
Hellboy/Beasts of Burden #1 (of 1) — Writers: Evan Dorkin with Mike Mignola; Art: Jill Thompson Alan put this book out as my contribution to the “Pick Hits” wall for the week without even asking, because he knows how much I love Dorkin and Thompson’s spook-chasing critters, and this crossover with Hellboy (with Mignola providing the Big Red Demon’s dialog) doesn’t disappoint: same clever bits, same effective characterization, same refusal to go for the easy cuteness, same wonderful, award-winning art. If you’ve never encountered Beasts of Burden before, this is a great intro, and a perfect Hallowe’en present; if you … Continue reading
