Buy These Comics! November 25, 2009

Posted on 20 November 2009 by LoryGil

Well, the holidays have finally started. Christmas music plays in all the retail stores, The Tick releases another Christmas Special comic, and Grandma is sleeping in your room while you are stuck on the couch for a week. Here are a few comics you can read while staving off boredom at Thanksgiving dinner- while Uncle Ted tells you all about the secret mission he was on during Viet Nam- in this weeks installment of Buy These Comics!

chew-6-cover_001Chew #6 (Image Comics)

Writer: John Layman, Artist: Rob Guillory

This is the second story arc for the tremendously unique and innovative comic by John Layman. “International Flavor” takes our hero across the globe to sample new and exciting foods (among other things) and assigns Agent Chu to a new partner. This comic does not slow down. Every issue is full of fun and adventure, leaving you reeling from the rollercoaster ride that Layman has just taken you on. Artist Rob Guillory matches wit with style frame-by-frame and is known to hide a nice treat in the background for your enjoyment. If you are living in a cave and have not heard of this monstrously popular comic, have no fear! The same week that Chew #6 comes out, the first five issues will be out in trade paperback. Lucky you! Hop on your rock-mobile and pedal on down to B.C. Comics. Heh. I’m funny.

deadlockeDeadlocke One-Shot (Dark Horse Comics)

Writer: Arvid Nelson, Artist: Nick Stakal, Cover: Jock

Deadlocke comes from the coming-of-age teen novel, Venomous by Christopher Krovatin. It is the story of a teenager that can’t control his rage and the struggle he has with himself and those around him in an effort to overcome his violent tendencies. Now, I know how sappy that sounds, but if you think about it, that isn’t much different than the story of our good friend, Alex DeLarge, in A Clockwork Orange. Teen boy, hell-bent on causing suffering, realizes that there is more to life than just giving the old in-out to devotchkas, grows up, the end. This comic promises to be a big hit with tweens and 25-30 year old women. No wait, that’s Twilight. Writer Arvid Nelson is showing his chops by expanding into the world of adaptations, while artist Nick Stakal takes a break from creating the dark world of the Criminal Macabre to create a bit of ultra-violence for our enjoyment. See, doesn’t that sound like fun?

Buy These Comics! November 11, 2009

Posted on 09 November 2009 by LoryGil

I’m back with a vengeance. To make up for all of that lost reading you have not been keeping up on, I’m going to have to give you a lashing. The good news is that next week promises to be a cracking good week for new comics. Here are a few that I deem worthy of my column:

wwwdccomicsBatman/Doc Savage Special #1 (DC Comics)

Writer: Brian Azzarello, Artist: Phil Noto, Cover: JG Jones

I know how exciting it is too see that the writer of 100 Bullets taking the reins on Marvel’s beloved, The First Wave bull. Writer Brian Azzarello is arguably the best known writer of pulp style comics of the past decade, and his noir influence drips from the pages of the Batman/Doc Savage Special. This first issue is set in an earlier time. A time when bats were young and full of life, and not yet beaten down by loss and betrayal… see what I mean, the guy’s contagious or something. Artist Phil Noto is the perfect complement to the dusty pages of the streets of DC’s yester-years. He has this cute way of drawing batman when he’s mad that just makes you want to giggle. DC is threatening that this comic is the jumping off point for a complete re-imagining of the DCU, but don’t worry, they’ve threatened that before, about a hundred times in the past 9 months. The book is $4.99 but it comes with a cute little sketchbook section by Rags Morales, so it is sure to be a collector’s item to someone someday.
