Punisher

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.
