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!

Wait, What? Ep. 146: Two:One

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?)

<<jazz hands>>

Anyway, after the jump: “Show notes? I’ll show you show notes, mister!”

“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!

“Muh Version of Whut Happened May Not Be Spicy Enough Fer Yore Little Boy’s Tastes…” COMICS! Sometimes Even A Surly Jackass Weeps For The World!

John Kane

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!

ABHAY: These Aren’t That Good But Here’s Another Attempt at Capsule Reviews

Abhay Khosla

Eh, don’t feel like I did a great job on these, but here’s an attempt at some capsule reviews for THE WHITE SUITS #1, DEADLY CLASS #1-2, more just chit-chat than a review of SATELLITE SAM #6 which I didn’t care enough about to mention any of the actual details of (I think I really ate it on that one), FANTASTIC FOUR #1, and FOREVER EVIL: ARKHAM WAR #1 to 5.  There’s better stuff on the internet, right now, these are just bleh, but if you’re bored…

“I Wonder If Tom And Larry Would Be So Eager To Marry Me If My…Feet…Were…Gone!” COMICS! Sometimes They Got Moxie, You Betcha!

John Kane

As an ancient ladies’ fragrance ad had it, “Men Can’t Help Acting On Impulse”; which is why we have prisons. And, slightly more pertinently, why I bought this book of ye olde newspaper continuities. Repeat offenders will recall that recently I looked at a Hermes Press collection of Frank Robbins’ Johnny Hazard newspaper strips. Hopefully such folk will fail to recall that I was somewhat out of my depth and basically just said “Frank Robbins draws real nice!” in a number of different ways without even a hint of insight. In the uncharacteristically optimistic belief that I could hardly do any worse I thought I’d look at yet more old newspaper strips. This time out they are both about and by a woman. This means there’s every chance I’ll not only fail to say anything of use but I’ll also inadvertently offend fifty percent of the world’s population. Sigh, and this is how I relax; it’s no wonder I have more hair on my toes than on my head.

This a big week following a month of smaller weeks, so if you had been holding back the previous weeks, now is the time to go all in on comic books! High profile releases this week are DEADLY CLASS #2, the return of THE WAKE and HAWKEYE #15, but if those aren’t the books for you than I am sure we can find you something beneath the cut!

It’s funny because it’s true.

Hey there, everyone!  You miss us?  Well, good news, we’re back–all three of us (Graeme, me, and my terrifying vocal echo that haunts much of this podcast).  After the jump:  show notes and promises to do better!

Tilting #230 is live: BookScan 2013

Yay, the longest thing I write every year.

Man, I didn’t AT ALL have the time to write this one, either.

Go read it, then let me know what you think……

“That Was MY Bikini. That Drug Was Meant For ME!” COMICS! Sometimes You Can Go West But Life Is Not So Peaceful There!

John Kane

Yes! She’s back the lassie with the classy chassis; the gal whose gams are deadlier than a gat! Put your hands together for miss Honeeeey Weeeeest!…Honey West. You know…Honey West. Looking at me like I’m just making farting noises with my mouth isn’t helping. Okay, let me hit the streets, break some heads and see if I can get the real skinny on this crazy dame…

Another week of comics appears! Though due to inclement weather conditions shipments for the whole of the west coast will be delayed twenty four hours but still shelved on Wednesday, so if you are an early morning comic buyer, maybe wait till the afternoon.

Now the fun stuff! With the debut of the first collection of Ales Kot and friend’s ZERO, along side some of our other favorites, like ALEX + ADA, and new comer UNDERTOW, this is a week you should not shy away from. Find the rest of the comics you can look forward to this week after the cut!

“…Is This A Giant Sponge I See before Me?” COMICS! Sometimes There’s Plenty of Effing And Jeffing In Them!

John Kane

So I read a comic featuring a 1980’s Brit Comics Icon who is still going strong in the 21st Century. Oh yeah, and Tank Girl’s in it. Ho de ho de ho! Sigh.

“Always Prepared. Always Ready.” BOOKS! Sometimes You Get What You’re Given And Just Make Do

John Kane

Okay, let’s stop pointing fingers, dry our eyes and just accept it’s a BONUS SKIP WEEK! (Bonus Booo!). Caught me on the hop a bit, I’ll admit. Unfortunately I haven’t anything in my head about comics but there are a couple of books I’ve been thinking about. Why not, eh? You never know your luck in a raffle. So, it’ll be a bit rough and ready this time out (yeah; no change there then) but I’ll probably find my flow after a couple of dozen words. Anyway, this…

All Wait, No What? The Skip Week’s Skip Week

Jeff Lester

Unrelated to this post — I just included it because it makes me happy every time I see it.

Hey, everyone:  Jeff here with a very big apology for everyone.  Last week, as per our schedule, Graeme and I talked comics for two hours.

Unfortunately, the person who was responsible for recording us did not manage to push the little button that *records* our conversations.  (That person will go unnamed…but only because it was me.  If it’d been Graeme, I would’ve given him up in a heartbeat.)

I thought about giving you a rough version of the show notes anyway, based on what I remembered (and I would’ve tried to be oh-so-clever and called them “show nots”) but I feel like that wouldn’t have been especially helpful.   So I decided to just leave it be.

On the up side, we usually get an extra-great essay from John Kane on our skip weeks, so maybe this will trick him into writing something else for the site this week?  And maybe when Graeme and I speak next week, not only will I hit record but I’ll try and mix it on the fly and get it super-early.

Anyhoo, our deepest apologies (by which I mean my deepest apologies, but once again I’m trying to drag Graeme into this even though he is entirely blameless) and thank you for your considerable patience!

It is another week of comics, I am sure you know you weren’t going to get off so easy as to not have new comics for a week! No! The big book this week is easily the third volume of PROPHET and a little thing called THE WALKING DEAD also comes out again this week. “Surely, there are more than two books this week,” you ask, and I respond, “of course!” Click that link below and you will see all the new comics for yourself!

“Working Together In The Name Of The Common Good…” COMICS! Sometimes Creators Don’t Get To Pick Their Fans! (Ever, Actually. Now I think About It.)

John Kane

It’s a Skip Week! (Booo!) So let’s see what falls out of my head (Yay!). Checking the Savage Critic’s mail bag I see several of you may have contacted me expressing intense distress that I have yet to tell you how 2013 panned out for Howard Victor Chaykin.  It was definitely several or none. It’s so hard to remember these things. So, hedging my bets I’ll tell you anyway…

February is starting slow with a week on the smaller side. Some standouts are the final collection of LOCKE & KEY and G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona’s MS. MARVEL.  Some other excellent choices lie just behind the cut, if you would like to explore deeper.
