wednesday-comics Wednesday Comics #1 (DC Comics)

Writers :Various, Artists: Various

DC Comics is really pushing the envelope with reinventing the way they do comics here. First, they gave us the extremely popular, weekly comic, 52, which opened the door for a whole line of weekly titles to enjoy. Now, they are giving us Wednesday Comics, which is a brilliantly original, weekly 16-page fold-out comic with nothing but newsprint style strips of all your favorite DC characters. This is the first of its kind, and sure to be a hit with fans. However, DC is attempting to boost their popularity with noobs, and thanks to a run of Wednesday Comics in USA Today, they anticipate adding a few million to their, already gi-normous readership. Here is a great way to bring your brother’s kid into the folds of geekdom. Once he reads John Arcudi’s version of Superman, your almost cool nephew will be hooked for life. Any you will finally have someone other than cyberDan142 to talk to about the death of Batman.


North 40 #1 (Wildstorm Comics) north-40

Writer: Aaron Williams, Artist: Fiona Staples

North 40 is another Lovecraft inspired book with a modern twist. This time, it is about a small Midwest town under the throes of a not-so-uncthulu-like monster that was mistakenly unleashed by the local kids. Ain’t nothing’ better than a buncha yokles raisin’ hell on a coupla blood-thirsty oogedy-boogadies. Nuff said.

tom-strong Tom Strong #1 Special Edition (Wildstorm Comics)

Writer: Alan Moore, Artist: Chris Sprouse

In the wake of the unrelentingly popular, Watchmen, reissues of long-forgotten comics are making their way to the “new This Week” shelves of our beloved comic shops. Tom Strong is next in line for a revitalization effort. I’m sure Alan Moore is seething in his hermit cave as he watches his precious comics get put back on their well-deserved pedestals. Started in the late nineties, Tom Strong was written as an homage to science-fiction pulp novels. Strong is a beefcakey scientist who became a superhero because of some crazy West Indian root he ate to give him unnaturally long life and strength (kids, don’t try this at home!). With all of the hoopla surrounding the recent movie adaptation of two of Moore’s comics (V for Vendetta and Watchmen), it is no wonder DC is trying to capitalize on the general public’s growing interest in the elusive writer. My boyfriend’s 50-year-old aunt has just started reading every Alan Moore book she can get her hands on. Smart thinking guys… smart thinking.
