The end of February is rapidly approaching, but this week will not go by unnoticed!

New ARCHIE and BITCH PLANET headline a strong week over all!

Check the cut for the rest of the new comics!

“Oh, Betty!” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Doctor Who And The Pub Made of Haunted Wood!

John Kane

Just for a change I thought I’d look at an Original Graphic Novel rather than a British anthology comic featuring a poo eating robot that talks more sense than most public figures. Naturally, I loaded the dice by picking one by one of my favourite writers working with an artist whose work I have much fondness for. And Michael Easton. Guess how well that worked out for everyone.

Yummy Yummy Abhay!

Brian Hibbs

You probably don’t really need me linking to THE COMICS JOURNAL for you, but in case you haven’t seen it, Abhay has an epic threefour-part journey through Comics 2015 that is a very worthwhile read — I laughed out loud at least at four separate occasions, and I am one jaded-ass fucker.

Part One: http://www.tcj.com/the-tcj-2015-year-in-review-spectacufuck-part-i/

Part Two:  http://www.tcj.com/the-tcj-2015-year-in-review-spectacufuck-part-ii/

Part Three: http://www.tcj.com/the-tcj-2015-year-in-review-spectacufuck-part-iii/

Part Four: Up tomorrow, dumb Brian.  But…. I bet you might be able to guess the URL….

 

Go read, and thank me later!

“Let’s All Send Him Our Love.” COMICS! Sometimes I Suspect My Chakras Are Stunted.

John Kane

Anthologies don’t sell! Yet people keep publishing them and I keep buying them. Here are some words about three anthologies I read this week.

Brian Hibbs

Without a doubt the book this week is new LOVE & ROCKETS, but BATMAN, DESCENDER, MANHATTAN PROJECTS, MS. MARVEL and LOW are nothing to scoff at either, right?

“He Thought He Could Forget The Past. He was Wrong.” COMICS! Sometimes I Find A whole New Way To Bore You!

John Kane

Of late I’ve been a regular Chatty Cathy and no mistake, so as a change of pace I’ve scanned in some House Ads which ran in DC Comics from (and it’s totally arbitrary this) March 1989 to August 1990. I always enjoy looking at these things when I dig out my back issues; they remind me of stuff I have tucked away (and even sometimes forgotten), or nudge me about stuff I mean to pick up at some point before…I come to my senses and start acting my age. Sometimes they just make me shake my head and wonder how that turned out for everyone. Heck, it’s just fun looking at them, basically, and I hope you share my fascination…

Arriving 4/3/16

Brian Hibbs

Last week is a difficult show to out do, but this week has a fair shot at standing on it’s own!

New BATGIRL, A-FORCE and GIANT DAYS plus the second issue of one of the best new series in awhile AMAZING FOREST and the debut of a new entry in the 8HOUSE world from Emma Rios with MIRROR.

Check the cut for all the new February comics!

“We’re JUDGES – We Can Do Any Damn Thing We WANT.” COMICS! Sometimes It’s A Clear Cut Case of Rather You Than Me, Dear.

John Kane

I only had time to write about one comic this time. Sorry. But do please feel free to all club together and make me independently wealthy. I’ll probably manage, oooh, three comics then. Gee, thanks for thinking about it, anyway. This time I continue to big up The Home Side by looking at the very latest issue of 2000AD. It might only be one comic, but it’s a fresh ‘un! Hmm, still breathing so it is!

“Droids Don’t Knock.” COMICS! Sometimes The Darkest Judge of All Is Judge Critic!

John Kane

Not wishing to set a precedent here but in response to a reader comment I look at a volume of IDW’s JUDGE DREDD. There’s little, if any, toilet humour in this one. I’ve got all that out of my system (tee hee!) But if you like icy disdain then bring your skates because we’re doing figure eights! Or maybe I liked it. Ha, Ha, just kidding.

You know it is a good week when three of the best comics all come out the same day! SAGA, ISLAND and MONSTRESS all make an appearance along with BLACK MAGICK, DEADLY CLASS and the debut of CRY HAVOC from Si Spurrier and Ryan Kelly.

“Like Turds in Rain…” COMICS! Sometimes I Act My Shoe-Size Not My Age.

John Kane

Abhay’s below this, so don’t dilly dally, and certainly don’t shilly shally, go there! Do it NOW! Me, I’m still trying to get regular, so here’s another go at that. There’s a lot of toilet humour in this one. It’s the only industry we have left.

Abhay vs. His To-Read Pile

Abhay Khosla

I haven’t bought comics in some months (October? November?), but I have an out-of-control to-read pile, filled with impulse buys that I have not made much progress on for a very long time.  I had a whole night last night, and worked pretty hard today, so I’m staying home tonight, doing laundry, making pasta, having a quiet evening, and thought I’d try to make a dent in the pile.  Thought I should take breaks and ramble around.  So, you know, just hanging out, reading some comics that came out a while ago, spelling errors, paragraphs that go nowhere, “reviews” that add up to nothing, hemming, hawing, a lack of wit, tedium… FRIDAY NIGHT!  WOOOO!

“I’ve Had Mair Exciting Enemas.” COMICS! Sometimes It’s The Comics of Tomorrow – TODAY!

John Kane

Hey, I finally realised after eight years of looking at Brian (The Guv’nor) Hibbs’ Shipping Lists that due to a temporal anomaly which baffles the greatest scientific minds of our times, I am able to tell the The Americas about certain comics well in advance of when they are able to read them! Or it might be because they are British comics and it takes a bit of time for them to get distributed. That’s a bit mundane though isn’t it? Temporal anomaly it is! So, below the line I give you The Future – NOW!

“Today Is The First Day Of A Life Of Sacrifice.” MOVIES! Sometimes It Takes Me a Bit To Warm Up.

John Kane

It’s 2016! I don’t know about you but I know that the one thing I really need right now is another year to get through! Nothing quite gets me smilin’ like the feeling I’m starting from scratch all over again. Sisyphus ain’t no mythyphus, Camus! Ugh. What is it with time? It just never stops. Ugh. Time. Double ugh. So, before I pull the covers back over my head, here’s some stuff on movies which you’ve all already seen and made your minds up about. I tried to make it even more useless than that even, but it just wasn’t possible. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

“Wonderfully PEDESTRIAN.” COMICS! Sometimes I’m Less Than Impressed.

John Kane

There was a new Batman comic out. It was an Event because Frank Miller was reportedly involved. I bought it. Frank Miller may well have been involved in actuality but, honestly, I could only detect homeopathic quantities of Frank Miller. Overall, I thought it was a pretty poor Event and only a mediocre Btaman comic. Yeah, that’s it; I thought I’d spare you having to read what follows. You can if you like, but it goes on a bit. Ooh, what a palaver!

Abhay: 2015– Another Year that I Mindlessly Consumed Entertainment (almost)

Abhay Khosla

Hello. Sorry it’s been a long time since I’ve had opportunity to visit with you. How was your year? Good, I hope. Mine was busier than expected, maybe the busiest and most stressful I’ve had professionally since I started the whole occupation-thing in 2002. So, plans I had about what I wanted to write here were delayed. So were my plans to impress Jodie Foster, though, so you know, maybe some things are for the best. You were never out of my thoughts completely though, and I’m referring here both to you and also, to Jodie Foster.

And so if you’ll indulge me, I did want to do another collection of year-end lists, as I have in previous years.  I just like the doing of it, and I like having like a “personal tradition” to keep up, however silly. But this wasn’t a year where I felt like as engaged as other years, with comics especially, but television and movies, as well. I watched more Youtube cooking videos this year than prestige television– it sort of has been a “rebuilding year”, in ways I won’t bore you with here, so as a result, this is going to be a pretty uninformed series of lists, maybe embarrassingly so where comics especially are concerned.  Plus, because of timing issues, I’m writing it all in one night, and am very sleepy during the part of the process where I usually fix errors or delete things I shouldn’t say murder all the babies in their cribs.  But maybe it’ll go well.  Or maybe it’ll go as well as the rest of our lives have this year OH NOOOOOOOOOO

Last new comics of the year. Small week but cool stuff with new ANT-MAN, WE(L)COME BACK and BLACK MAGICK!

Do note though that some shops, on the west coast at least, aren’t receiving new comics till Wednesday morning but they are still on sale Wednesday. So be kind to your favorite comic shop people, it will be a hard day.

[EDIT: Books with an asterisk have been asked to NOT BE SOLD on Wednesday, and odds are good that most, but not all, stores will comply with this.]
