Buy These Comics! August 26, 2009

wwwdccomics2Batman; Widening Gyre #1 (DC Comics)

Writer: Kevin Smith, Artist: Walter Flanagan & Art Thibert, Cover: Bill Sienkiewicz

Kevin Smith wrote a fairly gruesome Batman story for us last year called “Cacophony” that was pretty awesome. Smith is able to hold onto the true grit of a Dark Night title, while sprinkling a bit of potty humor in for taste. He’s back with a new story for us that he claims will actually come out on schedule (we’ll see). Widening Gyre is a typical detective tale filled with mystery, intrigue and, knowing Smith, a lot of indiscretion. Smith will be introducing a brand new hero to the DCU in this arch that will later be the start of his (or her) own comic. Big news for DC fans who are stirring for something new to chew on. Issue #1 sets the stage for what is sure to be a whirlwind of an adventure for the Caped Crusader.

Darkness/Pitt #1 (Image Comics)darknesspitt01_cover

Writer: Paul Jenkins, Artist: Dale Keown

You want to talk about some seriously dark art. Check out the Darkness/Pitt crossover. Pitt creator and artist Dale Keown has a special ability to make your neck hairs stand up on end with his swords and spiky costumes. Bringing the chaos inducing Pitt into the world of The Darkness is a bumpy ride, at best. It is almost unbelievable that our beloved hero from the nineties has finally made it back into print for more than just a special guest appearance. While I have never been interested enough to pick up an issue of The Darkness, I have to admit to ogling the covers, wondering if it was work three bucks to check it out. If you are like me, then now is your chance to see if you are ready to embrace the darkness. We already know that Pitt is kick-ass.

26336new_storyimage2238897_fullSpin Angels #1 (Marvel Comics)

Writer: Jean-Luc Sala, Artist: Pierre-Mony Chan

Another foreign comic from Marvel is at your local comic shop. Yay Frenchies! Spin Angels is the story of a bunch of bad-ass Catholics fighting a bad-ass mafia hit-man. Add a little love interest and a power hungry priest and you’ve got yourself a hell of a Saturday night. I’ve mentioned this before, but it should be reiterated that comic lovers should support the import of these European comics. It is a special treat for us to have access to these titles. Europe gets bunches of our crap. It’s about time we were able to tap into their highly intellectual, literary prowess. Now, don’t get me wrong, this is no Batman: Killing Joke or anything, but Spin Angels (as well as the previous imported comics) is well worth the six bucks you’ll spend on it. Note: Not sure why it says Crossfire on the cover. Maybe that was the working title?
