Christopher Priest is returning to write Black Panther...for one story only. In Black Panther Annual #1, famous Black Panther writers Don McGregor, Christopher Priest, and Reginald Hudlin return to write three new stories about T’Challa, Wakanda, and...Everett K. Ross.
Just in time for Christmas... All jokes aside, this one looks intriguing. Judas is a interesting interpretation of one of the most - if not the most - reviled individuals in the Bible. From an interview with the creator/writer of the mini-series, Jeff Loveless:
I stopped reading the main DC Wonder Woman book after Greg Rucka finished his run, but there is a Wonder Woman book that I am currently reading: Wonder Woman/Conan by Gail Simone and Aaron Lopresti. It is fantastic in all meanings of the word.
I’m buying just one today. Scales & Scoundrels is a very light-hearted story. Far from all the dark shit I tend to read. This is issue 4. I guess it’s time for another story of my time as a comic book clerk.
This one looks like my cat Bruja. And the story is not too shaby. I’m also looking forward to Sword of Ages cuz it’s written and drawn by none other than Locke & Key’s Sir Gabriel Rodriguez, thank you very much. I’m really interested to see his skill at doing both.
My curiosity is definitely peaked by Imaginery Fiends. Part of its premise is based on the real life true crime story about two girls who attempted to savagely kill a friend in order to appease the Slender Man. The incident brought to the light an aspect of the life of pre-teens and what goes on in that secret world. …
I went into Justice League not really expecting much. All I really needed to enjoy the film was for it to deliver some great action scenes and some good character interactions. And boy, did it deliver that and a little bit more.
Just one whole comic this week. So, I have another story from my many adventures as a comic book store clerk to share with you all.
So Brian Michael Bendis is leaving Marvel for DC. This is pretty shocking news in itself, considering Bendis has been with Marvel for close to seventeen years now and has written almost all of their major characters and even created some new characters that have become very popular. So while we might speculate what…
It’s time to find some new stories and this week I’m plopping my money down on 2 from Image - cuz they actually put out some good shit - and I like variety. One deals in the supernatural and the other in sci-fi. Good enough for me.
Tor Freeman has been named winner in the Observer/Cape/Comica graphic short story prize 2017. If you can’t pick up a hard copy of The Observer, her entry can be read on The Guardian website along with interviews with previous winners.
After the disastrous and controversial ‘Evil Captain America’ run, the original Steve Rogers has returned... and not a minute too soon.
Nothing for this week I just dig this cover. And since there’s nothing for the week I’ll just reach into my bag of stories from the time I was a clerk at a comic book shop in the 90s to share with you all.
Angelic is the story of a flying, talking monkey hybrid named Qora. She lives in a place where most are subservient to a religious few and worship an unfair god. She goes around questioning everything is punished with more chores for it. She will be a bride in a prearranged marriage that to a male priest named Alfer.…
Long before DC actually announced their plans for Doomsday Clock —in fact, long before Doctor Manhattan was revealed at the end of DC Rebirth, back in the wild days of 2012, the prophet known only as “Chip Zdarsky” made a bold proclamation about Watchmen 2.
I’ve read the previews and seen some of the pages for Maestros and I’m reminded of Geoff Darrow’s work. This looks gorgeous and the story has a vibrant pop to it, so I’m in.
If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m big into synecdoches. There’s a lot of situations where one little aspect of a piece of media is indicative of a broader philosophy, and when you look at the big picture thinking about this philosophy, you can see how it all works together.
Somewhere out there in cyberspace is an interview with Peter Milligan where he debates the futility in trying to recreate the Eagle’s flagship comic strip, Dan Dare. Part of me wants to yatter on about the ambition of such a strip, part concedes the point that Frank Hampson’s Pilot of the Future was a product of a…
I like this cover. I like the writer. I like the plot. So, Imma buy me this comic.
Comics like to explain things. In cases of suspension of disbelief, it’s necessary to give some kind of an explanation as to how a character like Superman can leap tall buildings in a single bound; in cases of character motivations via backstories like why Batman decided to dress like a bat and fight crime, this is a…
