God is Dead

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 – March 5

By March 7, 2014 Comics

I had a heavy-ass stack of comics today when I left the store. Not all of them are pictured here (I’ll explain), but here’s all the noteworthy titles:

Manifest Destiny #1 (Fourth Printing)
Okay, so I’m late to the game on this title and since everyone has been raving about it, I grabbed the rest of the issues as well (hence the heavy stack). I love the art style, and I think I’m going to enjoy people dressed as old-timey fur trappers fighting monsters.

God is Dead #7
The battle against the God is swift and brutal, and I’m excited to see how the next story arc plays out.

Punisher #3
Does this book come out every two weeks or something? I can’t believe it’s already in the third issue – not that I’m complaining. I can’t wait to see Frank Castle beat the crap out of Electro (or any other dumb superpowered person for that matter).

Jupiter’s Legacy #4
The family drama is really ramping up, and I’m looking forward to all the puffy Frank Quietly people stabbing each other in the back.

Trillium #7
It’s that time of the month where I visit the quiet sadness that pervades every haunting frame of Trillium, and is pretty much my favorite thing about Jeff Lemire creator-owned projects.

Daymen #3
For someone that hates vampires as much as I do, I’m really into Daymen. Maybe because it’s about a human familiar that works for the bloodsuckers, or perhaps because it’s such a well choreographed story so far.

Starlight #1
I always love the start of a new Millar title. And since this one looks like golden age sci-fi, I’m probably going to read it first.

Vell #1
First issue. Going in cold. Looks intriguing.

UPDATE: I ended up going back to the store today (Thursday) to snag Moonknight #1. Can’t believe I missed a Warren Ellis book!

Comic Book Wednesday – February 19

By February 19, 2014 Comic Book Wednesday, Comics

It’s a pretty modest week at the comic book shop (for me anyway). Here’s the titles I took away today:

Punisher #2
It’s been a while since I’ve seen the brutal, more real world version of Frank Castle from back in the Garth Ennis’ Marvel Knights/Max run. The creative team, Edmondson & Gerads knocked it out of the park in the premier issue, so I’m back again this month for more. Despite not having traditional superhero titles on my pull list, I might be adding the Punisher to my monthly rotation.

Morning Glories #37
Looking forward to this month’s installment of killer character progression and mental gymnastics. Four weeks still seems too long between issues. All my observations and grand theories fade between issues, so a Morning Glories marathon (starting from Season 2) is probably on my horizon.

Extinction Parade #5
Still enjoying this book. Maybe it’s just because I love watching the dumb vampires dig themselves deeper into extinction at every opportunity.

God is Dead #7
Another awesome Avatar Press book this week! I can’t comment on this one too much other than I also need to read the previous two installments.

A Voice In The Dark #4
There’s nothing else like this book on the market right now. It’s a moody and intelligent character study of college campus noir following a young female killer, trying to keep her impulses in check.
