I think its great when you can take scripture and invert it to something dark. This week its a double shot of Cullen Bunn for me (I guess I’m a fan). With this from After Shock Comics and another from Boom! Studios. In other news, I think I’ll be going to see IT for a second time since I like it - see what I did there - the first time. I also want to mention that there’s a lack of Big 2 picks from me, and that its mainly independent publishers, but that doesn’t mean I’m some kind of snob or worse a Hipster. I’m simply not into them at this time. Although, I am liking Mister Miracle. And that shouldn’t stop anybody from bring up what they buy. Ya dig?
Alrighty then, on to the business of the day.
This week’s picks:
Dark Ark #1 - The wickedness of mankind has moved the Creator to destroy the world by way of the flood. Noah has been tasked with building an ark to save his family and the animals of the world. But this is not Noah’s story. For darker powers have commanded the sorcerer Shrae to build his own ark and save the unnatural creatures of the world—such as the vampires, the dragons, the naga, and the manticore. But what will happen on a vessel crawling with monsters, where insidious intrigue and horrific violence are the rule of law?
Angelic #1 - Winged monkeys! Techno-dolphins! Quantum alleycats! In ANGELIC, humanity’s long gone. Its memory lingers only as misunderstood rituals among mankind’s leftovers: the genetically modified animals they used and abused for eons.
But for one young flying monkey, QORA, the routines are unbearable. All she wants is to explore. Instead she’s expected to settle down, to become a mother...to lose her wings.
The Unsound #4 - Ashli makes a startling discovery about Dr. Kearney and comes face-to-face with “the administrator” running this twisted hospital.
It’s still a toss up with this next pick. I’ll be making a game time (meaning when I get to the store) decision.
Glitterbomb: The Fame Game #1 - Kaydon Klay wants to be famous. She wants it more than anything else she’s ever known. The dream is hers for the taking, and all she has to do is embrace the national tragedy that’s put her in the spotlight... Fan-favorite writer JIM ZUB (WAYWARD, Uncanny Avengers) and artist DJIBRIL MORISSETTE-PHAN (All-New Wolverine, Ultimates) continue their twisted exploration of fame and failure. The entertainment industry feeds on our insecurities, desires, and fears. You can’t toy with those kinds of primal emotions without them biting back.
