Comic Book Wednesday – June 11

By June 11, 2014 Comics

Even though I haven’t posted my weekly comics round-ups lately, rest assured, I’m still buying them – and, in most cases, reading them. This week I snagged a bunch of cool titles. Here’s a few of the more noteworthy:

Bee & Puppycat #2 – My daughter wanted her own monthly titles, so we’re reading Bee & Puppycat together. It’s funny, because the animated series isn’t even out yet and I can already tell she’s going to be on of those “I read the books first” gripesters. [Bee & Puppycat #2 comixology link]

Manifest Destiny #7 – The historical horror fiction rolls into its next story arc, and I’m loving every moment of Lewis & Clarke’s classified adventures in the new frontier. [Manifest Destiny #7 comixology link]

Shutter #3 – One of my favorite, new Image titles. It has a strong, female lead with an interesting backstory, and moves at a brisk place through a fantastically surreal world. [Shutter #3 comixology link]

Comic Book Wednesday – May 7

By May 7, 2014 Comic Book Wednesday, Comics

This week was a pretty rad selection of comics. Not much could keep me away from the local comic shop today, not even the rude douchebag working the counter.

Rat Queens #6
Are there still people that haven’t heard of Rat Queens? It seems weird to me. Maybe it’s not for everyone, but that certainly hasn’t stopped me telling everyone how they should be reading it. I’m thrilled to see the new story arc kicking off this week, and hanging out, once again, with most ass-kicking gals in comics.

Comic Book Wednesday – March 19

By March 19, 2014 Comic Book Wednesday, Comics

Here’s a quick glimpse at this week’s haul. I’m going to do a shorter rundown this week, as I’m drowning in work.

Voice in the Dark #4 – Loving this book – there’s few current comics like it.

Fuse #2 – Enjoyed the first issue, and I’m eager to see how it progresses (meaning, “If I’ll keep buying standalone issues”)

Undertow #2 – I’m glad this doesn’t come out on the same week as The Wake – they’re totally different, but I like to have a buffer between my aquatic adventures.

The Week of Avatar! – Lucky me, there’s three killer Avatar Press titles. Mike Wolfer is doing a bang-up job of running the Gravel show on his own. God is Dead continues to spread epic destruction. And the latest Crossed: Badlands story arc ends – I really hope everyone dies in this one.

Comic Book Wednesday – February 26

By February 27, 2014 Comic Book Wednesday, Comics

Okay, it’s time for my weekly Wednesday comic book pull list – on a Thursday (work & life prevented me from snagging my precious books on time). Anyway, it’s a pretty thick week of awesome:

Rat Queens #5 – Without a doubt, this is
It’s slightly depressing to hear that this book is moving to six week shipping spread because I can barely wait a month between issues. Along with Saga, this is one of my absolute favorite comics in ages. There’s a reason it’s been on every “awesome comics” list in last few months.

Deadly Class #2
It’s time to start assassin school, or at least I hope that’s what happens. I’m a huge Rick Remender fan, and this book oozes cool.

Crossed: Badlands #37
I haven’t been that thrilled with the last few short arcs, though they’ve each had their moments. That’s the great thing about this ongoing run of Crossed, evenyone in the current story will soon be murdered and you get to meet a new bunch of survivors.

Revenge #1
I’ve been selective when snagging first issues lately, especially with so many new titles launching lately. The title makes the story somewhat self-explainatory, so it was definitely the gory artwork that added it to my stack. It just seemed like a perfect companion to read along with Crossed – and then weep for humanity.

Wake #6
I think it’s crazy clever the way the previous arc ended and then sprung ahead to the future timeline for the next half of the 10 issue run. I’m in love with the epic scope of this story. I hope the frantic pace keeps up, and the awesome character develops with this issue’s new introductions. I’m ready to see mankind’s last survivors finally start kicking merman ass.

Manhattan Projects #18
This story went insane a long time ago, and it always takes me a few minutes to remember where the last issue left off. However it’s always impressive how Hickman juggles all these super geniuses, their egos, and their complete lack of humanity among all the violence is a joy to behold.

Black Science #4
I love the hard sci-fi storyline of this title. I’m eager to read this one, but I need to play catch-up on #3 (and possibly restart the series) first.

Pariah #1
Another sci-fi title! It’s my lucky day. I’m pretty much going into this one cold, so I’ll let you know later how that whole ‘judging a book by its cover’ thing works out.
