Last week soaked up a lot of the books that would normally ship in the second week leaving this one feeling lean. Though, we still see LUMBERJANES, SHUTTER, WALKING DEAD and some debuts from DC with GRAYSON and NEW SUICIDE SQUAD. Those are but a few of the books this week, click the cut and see what else will sate your comics need this week.

“There’s Nothing WRONG WITH YOU That I Can’t Fix..WITH MY TENTACLES!” COMICS! Sometimes Comics Are Like The Sponge And Must Go Porous!

John Kane

In which I unwisely blurt out some words about a Spongebob comic. If yesterday’s ridiculous farrago is any indication it will in fact really be about Tarot’s chest and largely entail me shouting like a crazy person about people misusing the land in front of my house. Or maybe I got my boat to float this time out. Altogether now, Kids..!

America! How’s that 4th of July Weekend thing going for you? Man, Canada just touches itself for one day but you lot take a whole weekend! Always fireworks on the4th of July as Max Cady said. Hope you all had a truly lovely time even though you are basically breaking our balls over here. No hard feelings! Here’s some words about comics. Hey, Magnus, can you guess which I liked best?

How can any week stand up against the monster that was last week? It may be the underdog, but this week is giving it a try. We have some favorites in the form of EAST OF WEST and SOUTHERN BASTARDS, plus Marvel is starting its push for the GUARDIANS movie with ROCKET RACCOON and LEGENDARY STAR-LORD hitting the street this week. Find all of this weeks comics just below the cut!

Abhay: A Stack of Comics I Mostly Haven’t Read in About 15 Years

Abhay Khosla

I went to my home town for the first time in some years.  And while I was home, I had cause to go through the old comics “collection”. I wanted to find one book in particular that I thought might help me on a project not yet worth mentioning, a foreign comic whose name I didn’t know that I’d bought on a trip outside the country around 1992-1993, impossible to find unless I went through box after box of disorganized, yellowing comics.

I found this mystery comic the last day I was there, but as I was going through the boxes, occasionally I’d spot some other comic that made me pause.  One of the last times I was home, I’d mentioned the comics I’d looked at while home, so I thought I could do that again– took photos of the ones that made me pause with my cell phone– just thought I’d show them to y’all, in case they gave you any similar twinge of feelings or cause for thought.

The tricky bit being that for the most part,  I didn’t re-read any of these comics.  So, I haven’t read these comics in at least 15 years, if not more…

(Warning: image-heavy…?  Is that still a thing people feel like they need to be warned about?  “Warning: my geocities page is acting up again.“).

No one is pulling any punches this week. We have a huge array of returning favorites with DEADLY CLASS, MS. MARVEL, BATMAN, STRAY BULLETS, TREES and, of course, SAGA. Plus some big debuts with Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta’s OUTCAST and Geoff Johns and John Romita, Jr. taking the reigns of SUPERMAN. There is so much more that it would be foolish to try and list up here when you can just click the link and see what all is coming your way this week!

Tilting #234 is up!

Death. To. The. Penny!

And more more more on the second store (store store).

Find it at Comic Book Resources, though you MAY post here if you prefer not to there (but the community there IS much improved lately)

“Make A NECKTIE With His TONGUE!” COMICS! Sometimes You Can’t Put Lipstick On A Bat!

John Kane

Well what with all the IT hilarity I don’t know whether this will be here tomorrow but let’s live for today and look at some Batman comics. That’s what they mean, right, when they say live each day like there’s no tomorrow, right? They mean read some Batman comics. I mean if people seriously lived life for the moment then there’d be no societal infrastructure and stuff would just never get done; you know what folk are like they would be be looting, murdering and rutting like dogs in the street. It’d be like a prison riot but the whole world would be the prison. Now I think about it, Live each day like there’s no tomorrow is some pretty shitty advice. Um, it’s very hot here today. Look…it’s BATMAN! Well, Damian Son of Batman anyway.

Ow, sorry, timewarp!

Brian Hibbs

Backstage problems here at SavCrit, and everything that was posted in the last 97 days just got deleted. The GOOD news is it is in service of getting rid of the damn spam (though, that will still be a bit more time, but it IS being actively worked on)

It is possible (?) that John K and Jeff and Abhay all wrote things in Word first, and can restore their posts, but I’m not going to bet on it.  I know I sure as heck didn’t! Still, happy thoughts, right?

I am SO close to being done with the main parts of back issue project at the new store that is soaking virtually all of my time (I just started pricing “SUperman” this morning, just eleven more long boxes to go! Though only three of those are bagged & boarded this second…), and once I’ve squared away the last few bits of things that exist there, my next major goal is resuming regular reviews from me here at the Critic.  Third quarter sometime, but don’t be shocked if it’s closer on the Sept side than the Jul side.

Anyway, regular content returning from me Pretty Soon(tm), and I really want to thank Abhay and John (Especially!) for holding down the fort for me here. And I really miss Jeff & Graeme, too, but the need more than someone who was treating this as a secondary interest.

GUILTY, but, like I said, things are changing.  This timewarp is just a sad and stupid manifestation.

“I Ran ‘em!” COMICS! Sometimes Even The Flash looks Like An Aimless Dawdler In Comparison!

John Kane

The comics I’m on about this week were not only originally published before you were born they were originally published before I was born; well, just. Tasty! They feature a man who can run really fast but instead of fighting crime and talking killer gorillas he instead wins races in bleak Northern towns purely for his own satisfaction. Somewhere in that comparison I think there lurks the crux of the difference between the American and English characters. Best not to dwell on it, eh?

“And If There’s No News…I’ll Go Out And Bite A Dog!” MOVIES! Sometimes You Can All Komodo My Place And We’ll Watch Some Stuff!

John Kane

Okay, there’s nothing happening in my head comics wise at the moment. But I wanted to chuck some content up so here’s some stuff about movies. The earliest one here was made in 1947 and the latest one was broadcast a week ago so something for everyone? Highly unlikely.

“The Weaving of Ornate Tapestries Glorifying Our Ancestors and Their Bygone Way of Life.” COMICS! Sometimes I Treat You Like My Local Library And Continue To Patronise You!

John Kane

This week I visited my library and took out and read a recent-ish TPB of some quite old Conan comics, 1982 or thereabouts. Then I tried to put my thoughts about ‘em into what them there clever folks call words. I think it worked out about as well as that usually does for me. Probably a lot less well for you. One thing I did discover was that the Hyborian equivalent of Occam’s Razor was Conan’s Rock:

This week is a lesson. This week is telling us that we should not judge a week by the amount of books, but the quality of the books. Case in point, this week marks the long awaited return of David Lapham’s STRAY BULLETS with, not one but, two periodicals and a giant book, that itself could be used as a weapon in a story that would appear in it’s very pages! Don’t be fooled though! Plenty other books are coming out this week, just click the link and see for yourself!

Man. the stuff you could buy out of the back of comics.

Hey, everyone!  We’re back with another  podcast.  You should download it and listen to it really loud while you watch the last episode of True Detective!  (Why? I don’t know.  It would make the experience more cinematic, maybe?  I mean, I suppose I could’ve taken the time to craft some outrageously satisfying joke about, uh, hmm, see, now you know the problem I’m having with that one and really the joke — even if I could craft one, which it is now clear I couldn’t  — would’ve only really truly been funny for a brief period of time, whereas failure is enduring and therefore timeless and therefore ever-timely and besides don’t we just die in the end, anyway?)

“Nah, Son. This Is On ALL of Us.” COMICS! Sometimes If This Superhero Thing Doesn’t Work Out They Could Always Moonlight As A White Goods Delivery Firm!

John Kane

Due to popular demand what follows is about a new(ish) series and it’s also mercifully brief! Who says we here at The Savage Critics don’t listen? Well, they’re right. But we thought you’d find the illusion comforting.

I know, the site is a little borked, I know!

Brian Hibbs

Comments be broken, there’s spam, and so on… I’m trying to get it addressed, but I’m just drowning from overwork with the second store.  Some things should be happening VERY SOON that should make things a little better, and there are a few other changes coming that (I don’t think?) are really my announcements to make, so I won’t….

But, really, I’m just asking for patience until my schedule clears up a little — I’m a little past halfway done with the BASEMENT O’ DOOM! then, after that I actually plan to return to reviewing things again.  But that might not be until summertime?

Trying hard to suck less!

Man, I just about read the ink right offa these pages when I was just a young ‘un. And I just read ‘em agin right now. If you’re of a mind to, sit back and whittle awhile and I’ll flap my yapper concernin’ ‘em.

This week is a small week, but don’t be fooled! A small week can still have more big books than you can count. Including not one, but two, Mark Millar books in the form of STARLIGHT #1 and his and Quietly’s return to JUPITER’S LEGACY. Plus, new Warren Ellis in the form of MOON KNIGHT #1, Brubaker and Epting with VELVET #4 and the latest WALKING DEAD collection. That is a lot of things, but trust me, their is more beneath the cut!
