well, none of those are on Google Play. But I'll figure something out. I'll see if any of them are available thru my library or something.

Switching gears: I think I might check out the DC Rebirth Supergirl series. Actually... I definitely will. It's only on #3 I believe right now, so easy to catch up. I actually find the TV series totally charming. So I'm kind of 'into' the character right now. So that's another DC title that I'll be picking up Sev. Prob not one of the ones you were hoping I'd follow, but...

It's fucking down and dirty horror noir that's actually scary and it's also FUNNY AS FUCK. The main character narrates his thoughts and actions, out loud, in real time, regardless of who's around or the appropriateness of what he's saying/thinking.

 


Just fucking great. It has nothing to do with the 30DoN movie or anything like that. It's just the main story in a 30DoN collection called Bloodsucker Tales. Art by Ben Templesmith.

Oh my god it's so fucking good, seriously. They could have made a great movie out of this one story. To this day this stands as one of my favorite comics ever, and it's been a decade since I read it, but I still remember so much about it.

Read Lex Nova, guys. Holy shit. Schizophrenic paranormal Detectives, vampire priests, dead hookers, tequila. Magnificence.

I've heard great things about 30DoN but your recommendation has confirmed it, so another one for my Amazon basket!

I'm not sure if he's completely abandoned comics. I've tried to read both his novels but couldn't finish either. He's frustrating. If only he could get over his bitterness towards the industry. I think he did his best work when constrained by 2000AD and DC rather than when he was given total freedom. I agree that, had I written Halo Jones, Watchmen, V For Vendetta, Swamp Thing, From Hell, etc, I'd be happy too, but his recent stuff just isn't in that league and probably only has any readership at all because of his name. I respect him for going his own way but I don't think it's benefitted him creatively.

last night I read...

Extraordinary X-Men #13, which starts the third TPB. I'm actually pretty close to being current on this series. I believe it's up to issue 16 or 17 right now. Y'know who I love in this book? Magik. She's so awesome.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #62, which is really good. But like I've said previously, there's crazy ish happening this far into the series. Like... I don't think I should drop spoilers. But there's insane stuff that is franchise-changing.

Wonder Woman Rebirth, the 'prequel' to the Rebirth series. This sucked. It's written really confusingly. I actually stopped reading halfway thru. And I was only reading it cuz my wife read it and said it made no sense and didn't like it and wanted me to confirm if she just didn't get it or if it was really meh.

Stine is writing a new “Man-Thing” limited series for Marvel Comics.

The horror writer, known for the young adult novel series “Goosebumps,” will make his comic-writing debut with the new “Man-Thing” series. The comic, which will be heavily inspired by the “Tales From the Crypt” comics of the 1950s, will feature covers by Tyler Crook and interior art by German Peralta. True to the 1950s horror anthology style, each issue will also include a short horror story written by Stine and drawn by a guest artist, the first of which is Daniel Warren Johnson.

hey sev, I did pick up a new DC book: Supergirl #1. I like it. I'm gonna keep up with this series.

I'd be along in Batman if I could find a copy of #2 locally. Everywhere seems to have #1 and then #3 and onwards.

damn there's a lot of good stuff coming out today. Here's my shopping list:

Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #2 - love this series.

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures #2 - I told myself I was gonna skip the Adventures series after #1, but #2 has Harley Quinn in it, so I'm like... damn, I wanna read this one.

DC Rebirth Holiday Special - I love weird one-shots.

Guardians Of The Galaxy #15 - or, Issue #1 of "Grounded." On the fence about starting ANOTHER monthly series here, but I do love Guardians, and I read the preview of this issue and it was really good...

Gwenpool Holiday Special - I love weird one-shots.

Hawkeye #1 - This is the new solo series of Kate Bishop. Another one where I read the preview and was impressed.

Inhumans Vs X-Men #1 - Finally!

Jessica Jones #3 - Finally!

OK, now that I seriously MUST have!

I've seen the individual comics and uhmmed and ahhed, but now they're collected together in a single volume I'm 100% in.

hey you guys, I've decided to start a blog as a sort of reading journal of the comics I'm reading each week. It's still in beta mode, as I haven't really tweaked the layout nor added anything like an "about" page or whatever, but I've already upped some thoughts on stuff that I've read this week so far.

PLEASE check it out and any/all feedback welcome: https://comicbooknoise.wordpress.com/

Feel free to leave comments on posts there as well, so I'm not lonely.

Sorry man, I haven't had time to do any comic reading. My iPad is slow as fuck, the local store doesn't get anything good, and I've been working a ton. When I'm not working, I'm trying to finish up the book I'm currently reading. Or if I'm lucky spending a bit of time with my girlfriend.

I read your blog posts though. Well done. Nice and to the point. I tried to maintain a tumblr+Wordpress page for over a year, but life got in the way and I didn't have enough readers to make it worth a shit. Keep it up. I'll check back regularly.

Also this... slightly less cool, but whatevs.

 


I NEED TO SEE A DEADPOOL / MY BEAUTIFUL DARK TWISTED FANTASY MARVEL VARIANT!!!

Why the fun haven't they done that? Deadpool's face gets slapped on promo shit alll the time. Hell, they could even make it just like the explicit version of the album cover, only with Wade and Copycat going at it! As long as they made it a "parental advisory" variant.

But Deadpool in a ballerina pose or with one of his own sword sticking out of his head would work just fine too.

they've been doing those hip hop variants for a while now. They're cool, but I never buy them. I like the "real" cover art on my comics unless it's something specific like a Comic Con exclusive or whatever.

Marvel actually put out a book of all the covers from the first wave already.
