|Hot Picks for the Week!|
By John Judy
52 WEEK 31 by Johns, Morrison, Rucka, and Waid. Isn’t it amazing they still haven’t missed an issue?
AGENTS OF ATLAS #5 of 6 by Jeff Parker and Leonard Kirk. Who is Venus? Here’s a hint: She ain’t Venus. Good mini!
AMERICAN SPLENDOR #4 of 4 by Harvey Pekar and Others. Final issue until Harvey gets mad about something again.
BATMAN CONFIDENTIAL #1 by Andy Diggle and Whilce Portacio. The scribe of THE LOSERS and the artist of WETWORKS launch this newest Batman ongoing monthly.
DETECTIVE COMICS #826 by Paul Dini and Don Kramer. Robin’s been kidnapped by the Joker. This sort of thing never ends well…
DOCTOR STRANGE: THE OATH #3 of 5 by Brian K. Vaughan and Marcos Martin. Big Bads just don’t want Doc curing cancer. Plus a monster.
ESSENTIAL DEFENDERS VOL. 2 SC by Steve Gerber, Sal Buscema, and Others. Hey, they’re all essential but these just happen to be DEFENDERS 15-39 and GIANT-SIZE #1-5. It has an Elf. An Elf with a gun!
JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA #1 by Geoff Johns and Dale Eaglesham. Wildcat, Green Lantern, and the Flash are getting the band back together. Covers by Alex Ross. Highly recommended.
MARVEL HOLIDAY SPECIAL 2006 by Lotsa Folks. Featuring Fin Fang Foom, Wong, and the alphabet courtesy of the Thing and Annihilus. Funny.
MIDNIGHTER #2 by Garth Ennis and Chris Sprouse. The Midnighter has a bomb in his chest. The guys who put it there are in trouble.
NEW UNIVERSAL #1 by Warren Ellis and Salvador Larroca. “The New Universe: It Doesn’t Suck Anymore!” Not just dark. Ellis-dark…
SACHS AND VIOLENS SC by Peter David and George Perez. Two of comicdom’s most prolific creators join forces to create naughty action circa 1993. Collected for the first time. Not for kids.
SHOWCASE PRESENTS SHAZAM VOL. 1 SC by Denny O’Neill, C.C. Beck, Dave Cockrum and others too awesome to mention. Collecting the seventies re-launch of the World’s Mightiest Mortal, issues #1-35. That’s five years worth of fun! Recommended.
STAN LEE MEETS THE SILVER SURFER #1 by Stan “The Man” and Associates. Stan continues his romp, backed up by today’s top creators and classic reprints. Recommended for whippersnappers who need to learn.
SPECTRUM, THE BEST IN CONTEMPORARY FANTASTIC ART 13 HC & SC The unequaled reference book for everyone interested in imaginative illustration and fine art is back for its thirteenth colorful installment. Our highest recommendation.
SPIDER-MAN: REIGN #1 of 4 written and drawn by Kaare Andrews. It’s Spidey’s future, 20 years down the line when he has no choice but to come out of retirement. Like “Rocky Balboa” only better drawn and less creepy.
SUPERMAN CONFIDENTIAL #2 by Darwyn Cooke and Tim Sale. Superman plus Cooke plus Sale equals “Sold.” Glad Tim still has time to draw comics when he’s not doing “Heroes” on NBC.
TRANQUILITY #1 by Gail Simone and Neil Googe. A new comic about the town where super-heroes go to retire. Or at least try. Recommended.
ULTIMATE VISION #1 of 5 by Mike Carey and Brandon Peterson. Ultimate Vision continues “her” fight against Gah-Lak-Tus. Hey, it’s by the guy who wrote LUCIFER and that was good.
WALKING DEAD #33 by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard. Michonne and the Governor. Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! Quite possibly the most intimately violent comic I’ve ever seen and definitely NOT for kids. Or collectors of spoons…
WHAT IF CLASSIC VOL. 3 SC by Various Creators but mostly Roy Thomas. Collecting the original “What If?” series #14, 15, 17-20, featuring all kinds of crazy.
WILL EISNER’S SPIRIT ARCHIVES VOL. 20 HC by Will Eisner. Twenty of them! There’s twenty of them and they’re still not done! How long did this Eisner guy work anyhow? Oh…
WIZARD MAGAZINE 2007 MOVIE SPECTACULAR. Covering "Ghost Rider," "Transformers," "Iron Man," "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer," "The Dark Knight," "The Incredible Hulk," "300," "Stardust," "Watchmen," "Avengers," "Flash," "Fables," "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End," "Shrek the Third," "Eragon," "Pan's Labyrinth," "30 Days of Night," "Hellboy 2," "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," plus TV's "Heroes" and "Smallville."
