  1. Cool, a new Chew collection! Also looking forward to Angel & Faith.

  2. ALL STAR WESTERN #8 – It’s kind of amazing. I kept saying it would be better if Hex left Gotham, and last issue, set outside of Gotham, was the best so far.

    AQUAMAN #8 – For a book about an underwater guy, this series sure is decompressed! Everyone else is whinging about last ish having a Muslim hero appear just to be killed – I’m whinging about an eight page sequence just to see Black Manta kill someone!

    BLOODSTRIKE #27 – It’s what the 90’s grim and gritty books should have been!

    DAREDEVIL #11 – Skipped the other two parts. Rucka’s first issue of Punisher was terrible (he’s just not a good superhero writer), and I already get a four buck Spider-Man title twice a month, so another one from Waid (who doesn’t write a particularly good Spider-Man) isn’t very appealing. Just a shame they’ve decided to wrap up the DD storyline in a crossover – I hate when they do that. Hell, I just hate crossovers. Always have. Recent Brian Wood and Kieron Gillen comments have confirmed what I’ve always expected – much more fun to write than they are to read. [/RANT]

    FLASH #8 – I never understood why we even had eyes until this book came out.

    KIRBY GENESIS #7 – I do wish this book came with Kirby’s drawings of the characters within, but other than that, it’s a good bit of fun.

    NEW DEADWARDIANS #2 (OF 8) – The first ish was good. Great art.

    PTERODACTYL HUNTERS IN THE GILDED CITY – Never heard of it, but it’s got a good title. I’m in!

    SUPERMAN #8 – Hmmmm.

    SECRET AVENGERS #26 – Maaaaaaybe. I bought all of Remenders first arc, and it was ok. But $3.99 and an AVX tie-in had me keen for dropping it, BUT, I haven’t had any Renato Guedes art in my life since he left DC, and life could always do with more Renato Guedes art.

    Teen Titans is dropped. I’m dropping all the books taking part in ‘The Culling’. All three were on the edge with me, now I’m thinking of dropping more DC books as well – I wanna be one of the cool kids, dropping books because the companies just keep pissing me off.

  3. THINGS THAT HAPPENED LAST WEEK!

    BATMAN #8 – Greg Capullo won my heart once more by drawing Bruce Wayne’s pinky toe sticking out while tripping one of the owls in his rooftop brawl. See, when you kick without shoes on that keep your toes all tightly bunched up the muscles and tendons pull them in all sorts of weird directions. Try it! No, not in public!

    It’s a little detail from an artist I’ve been very impressed with. Also, was it just me or did he seem to be channeling Frank Miller’s DK2 in his interpretation of convalescing action Bruce? There was a blocky gauntness in the body…

    BPRD HELL ON EARTH LONG DEATH #3 – Was kind of a splash page let down for me. I was interested, the art was frenetic, bold, and in some instances truly gory and scary. I just expected a little more involvement from the BPRD crew? Certainly nothing to put me off my BPRD reading when the mood strikes, though.

    Both PROPHET #24 and SHADOW #1 were really and truly worthwhile. I don’t know what everyone’s deal was or if they realized at first blush this was a different Prophet (with a tail no less) but I found a lot to love about this ish. Weird worlds – weird tech – single minded and focused protagonist. It’s a formula that works well. Dalrymple did a nice job here and employed ye olde “sliding scale of necessary detail” to great effect.

    Shadow was pretty great and I appreciated the beat where the cop asked for a dictionary. Let characters be who THEY are in your fictional conceit. Too many writers seem so eager to cram in all THEIR knowledge / jokes / etc that the characters have no established voice. They’re reduced to the person in the panel spewing the script in the author’s voice.

    I also loved the hell out of the Margo Lane / Lamont Cranston relationship. First, it’s Joined In Progress. Second, she’s a big girl. Eyes open. No silly “is he or isn’t he” nonsense you might expect from a first issue.

    VERY GOOD – to GREAT.

    RAGEMOOR #2 was good and gross. I also overcame a personal fear of “monkey servant” character types to read this (damn you, Wizard of Oz) so…THANKS?!

    COMING THIS WEEK!

    MERCILESS RISE OF MING #1
    I have no idea what this is about. I’m almost certain that I will be disappointed. I’ll get it nonetheless hoping that they won’t do the “corrupted by power” fall of a noble man but rather the unrepentant rise of a figure like Genghis Khan on a galaxy spanning scale.

    SPACEMAN #6 (OF 9)
    End of last ish had that, “Shit’s about to get real” vibe.

    TEEN TITANS #8
    @Ben Lipman – I too was REALLY surprised to see the crossover rear its head so early in the 52. Wasn’t this an over under on a Wait, What? Q&A?

    That said, Superboy and RB Silva’s art have got me hooked so I will likely get this or at least give it a look. I’ve enjoyed the incorporation of the GEN13 characters so far too so that’s a bonus.

    My great hope is that all these powers have come from Nowhere experimenting on a lost Legion of Superheroes squad. Anyway, it’s a pet theory.

    DUNCAN THE WONDER DOG TP VOL 01 (OF 9) SHOW ONE (O/A)

    Not sure if the shop will have it but many people whose opinion I respect really enjoyed it so I will likely get it some way, somehow.

    KIRBY NEW GODS TPB #2 WEEK 3 OF TRYING TO GET THIS FROM THE SHOP. I AM ON THE VERGE OF A sedate rampage.

    Best to you all!

  4. About 10 comics and the new Sixth Gun Trade. Can’t wait!

  5. I have lurked too long. Feeding off the rest of humanity. Until you have nothing left to give. Hah, hah, hah, hah….

    How many hahs is considered good manners these days? Super villains are not the best role models, I’ve found. That is others with less controllable desires have passed this information to me through incorruptible channels. Ahem.

    BART SIMPSON COMICS #70
    The youngsters like it. Who doesn’t like Aragones?

    BPRD HELL ON EARTH PICKENS COUNTY HORROR #2 (OF 2)
    Love BPRD. Please don’t dilute the line too much.

    JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #8
    Milligan. Can do better. Must do better.

    KIRBY GENESIS #7
    Should go back and read the rest. What happened to this?

    ROGER LANGRIDGES SNARKED #7
    Roger. Langridge. Pure fun, cartooning.

    UNCANNY X-MEN #11 AVX
    Please look away. Gillen has done a pretty good job keeping things ticking over until the inevitable self destruction in an orgy of mindless crossover. But I’m guessing that is the real achievement here. Getting everyone to slide into that nice and warm mindless crossover. No thinking allowed. No, put that brain away, no please, aaargh………..

  6. This week will be:

    ALL STAR WESTERN #8 – last issue really worked for me. Although in a weird aside, I found I liked just about all of the “month 7” books from DC I picked up. On a whole, they all seemed much stronger, and noticeably so.

    AMERICAN VAMPIRE #26 – a batch read, so a pithy morsel of critical hors d’oeuvre will be TBD later

    ANGEL & FAITH #9 STEVE MORRIS CVR – survives where Buffy is now dropped. Good art, good stories, and with less silliness.

    DAREDEVIL #11 – one outlying issue plotwise on what is a great run, is not sending me into the rage some seems to have (not here, but on teh internets). Nobody made me buy the first two parts, so I didn’t. And lo, nothing bad has happened to me.

    EXILE PLANET O/T APES #2 – Boom is doing standout work on these.

    I VAMPIRE #8 – I thought last issue was pretty damn perfect. And yet this book seems never to have found its niche. And even as I am shaking my head, I know DC surely must be too, as fandom does not seem to buy what we say we want “Noes more super heroes and punching!” Okay, this is a pretty straight vampire book, with nice bits of horror , mood and character. “More female creators!” Okay, this books is drawn in pretty stunning fashion by Andrea Sorrentino. And I think it is pretty much the lowest selling DC book. I guess vampires just aren’t popular with the kids these days. They should do a book called i Zombie, as those shamblers are hawt! I bet it would TOTALLY sell.

    JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #8 – looking forward to the new creative team.

    NEW DEADWARDIANS #2 – Its “Downton Abbey” with Vampires **and** Zombies. Probably going to sell 300k copies.

    SPACEMAN #6 – will be read in a bunch, so I have nothing to say just yet.

    STAR WARS BLOOD TIES BOBA FETT IS DEAD #1 – In a universe that has been pretty well stripped mined, the last Boba series was fresh and fun.

    SUPERMAN SECRETS OF THE FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE TP – this could totally be a post on its own. I have the Treasury edition predecessor of this, and that beautiful Garcia-Lopez cover just screams Bronze Age retro love. But this is the weirdest bit of back-catalogue DC could put out, inasmuch as it is the Silver Agiest of the Superman stuff, and exemplifies all the legacy baggage that the nu52 was designed to wipe clean. I love it, but it flies against “the current direction of the character.” ™ Is it designed to keep us old guys around? Is it designed to try and get nu52 customers to look back? I dunno. So while I am THRILLED to be buying this book, I just don’t know why it exists.

    And while I had intended to try MING, the last FLASH GORDON ZEITGEIST just left me so cold to what Dynamite is doing, I will probably take that cash and buy FLASH instead, just so I can talk about it with J_Smitty. Might grab the SHOWCASE/SPECTRE too, although I have the great Barr/Aparo collection already.

    And sorry to all my loyal colleagues here on the Coming Soon channel at Savage Critic Brian kindly allows us to use. This is not the usual fun-sy post you may have come to expect from Corey (Ottawa). This is mostly due to a crushing level of snark and vitriol (that is not the stuff that turns Jimmy into Elasti-Lad)in the field right now. And it is just wearing me down. And I’m only a customer; I can guess what it does to retailers or creators.

    And that, frankly, is just plain nuts.

    When I look at what I have pre-ordered from the April solicits, I have literally three or four dozen books I am THRILLED to be waiting for. I am finding new stuff EVERYWHERE which I think is fabulous. Glory, Prophet, Saga, DB Cooper, Secrets, Saucer Country, Manhatten Project, Conan. Rocketeer. Hellblazer and Supergirl, and Balthazar’s SUPERMAN FAMILY. Mind the Gap looks great, as does MIND MNGT and CREATOR OWNED COMICS. Hell even WINTER SOLDIER had me smiling (it is totally awesome in a 70s Marvel Super-Villain Team Up kind of way). I took Graeme’s suggestion and picked up the run of IDW’s COBRA at a great ‘all for a buck’ back issue sale at my local, the legendary “Golden Gastropod”. FABULOUS stuff. Yes, I am excited about GEE EYE freaking JOE!

    There is lots popping up, and lots to look forward to. And mroe keeps coming. I think comics are collectively getting an energy that they haven’t had since maybe 1983-4, and yet: haters gotta hate.

    So here in this quiet corner of the Savage Critic, it is sometimes just nice to talk about why we like comics. And leave the legal battles for the courtrooms. And leave the moral battles for individual consciences and respective deities. And not argue about movies we haven’t seen. And quit griping about there being too many comics to buy or why there are so few comics worth buying. Or griope that you hate tie ins and cross-overs as they aremoney grubbing stunts, so you won’t like it but you will buy them. Or argue why contracts say what they say, or who is getting a better deal than who, and just plain leave the corporate machinations to corporations.

    And we can get back to arguing about the important stuff: like ‘who’s stronger, Thor or Hulk?’ or: ‘Spider-Man threat or menace?’ We can even make little cut-out face signs, like the kids did in JiM #112

    http://thedailythor.com/?p=887

    Buy what you like. Try new stuff. Talk about the fun.

  7. First, Corey(Ottawa), I second that emotion, and well said. So on to the comics!

    Aquaman #8:
    This is a pretty-looking book and fun/interesting enough. For some reason I can’t quite fathom (get it?!), my 9 and 10 year old kids love it. I will gripe about the excessive decompression (and so do my kids – they’d love it more if they got more out of each ish), but in a constructive and loving way, Corey (Ottawa).

    AVX VS #1:
    My 10 year old boy loves this stuff. My 9 year old girl is bored silly. The difference between the genders, ladies and gentlemen. You heard it here first. Me? It’s fun enough. My emotional attachment to Marvel continuity is all but gone, so continuity violations and folks acting out of character don’t bug me much. Hell, I’m old enough to remember that the very idea of “the Phoenix Force” is an editorially-driven retcon in the first place: so why should I care whether it acts ‘consistently’? To me, X-Men ended when Claremont left. So this guy who looks like Cyclops in this here AvX comic is just an empty action figure anyway – so bang them away and let the mayhem begin! (or continue, I guess…)

    Daredevil #11:
    This cross-over has been a little bit of a letdown. It’s not bad, but it’s not been great either. I guess the story just ended up being… smaller than I expected. And maybe a bit darker as well. Anyway, rather than being pumped for the senses-shattering conclusion, I’m more just looking forward to it being over and moving on to the next thing.

    And in the spirit of Corey’s (Ottawa’s) plea for celebration of good comics, I’ll add mine…

    On the advice of the posters on this board, I picked up Prophet #24 and I managed to find #’s 22 and 23 as well. I found it pants-crappingly awesome – just the kind of wildly imaginative, mysterious, ‘cosmic’ sci-fi I enjoy, and that’s too rare these days. Wonderful, world-building, detailed art that’s reminiscent of Miyazaki’s Nausicaa stuff (and not just because of the giant insects!), and solid, spare writing that serves the material well. Great stuff!

    Thank you all, gentlemen, for the recommendation, and making it worthwhile to participate on this board.

  8. Keep telling myself I gotta cut down on my comics buying, but Corey(Ottawa) is on to something in that there’s excitement in the new stuff coming out:

    ALL STAR WESTERN #8 – More for them being in New Orleans now than for the Night of the Owls tie-in

    AQUAMAN #8 – Been meaning to check in on this again after buying the 1st issue, and this one’s about how Atlantis sunk, right?

    CAPTAIN AMERICA AND HAWKEYE #629 – Cullen Bunn comes in as writer after pulling the class act of dedicating his no dialogue all action SIXTH GUN #21 to the creators of the no dialogue all action issue of GI JOE (was that also #21? If it was how chill is that?!)

    DAREDEVIL #11 OMEGA – Hopefully Mark Waid will be a friend to the readers & make this understandable if you haven’t read the Spidey & Punisher parts of the crossover, because I don’ think I’m interested in buying them

    FLASH #8 – I’m on the fence with this title. Hopefully this will bring back some of the excitement of the earlier issues

    I VAMPIRE #8
    JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #8 – NĂ¼ 52 seems to be a little crossover crazy right now, but here’s 2 books I want to like that didn’t quite do it 1st time out

    MERCILESS RISE OF MING #1 – Ming was always cooler than Flash

    NEW DEADWARDIANS #2 (OF 8) – I liked the opener quite a bit, but I don’t know if “Sleeper Hit from Vertigo” is worth more than about 11K these days

    POPEYE #1 (OF 4) – Roger Langridge and Popeye could be a match made in heaven

  9. @Corey (Ottawa)

    Oh yeah.

    This year has been my most rewarding in comics. Not necessarily because it’s been all good but because it’s been challenging – interesting.

    And knowing that there are things like PLUTO and 20th Century Boys out there that I’ve just not gotten to yet is THRILLING.
