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?

Dr. Horrible One-Shot (Dark Horse Comics)dr-horrible

Writer: Zack Whedon, Artist: Joelle Jones, Cover: Kristian Donaldson

Yup, that’s right. The internet sensation, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog has made its way into the funny pages. Dr. Horrible (sans the sing-along) is the origin story of the sweetest darn bad guy ever to give a speech in melodic tones. You see, when he was a boy, little Billy was picked on for being too smart. He learned to hate everyone for their narrow-mindedness and self-absorption. The lesson to be learned kids: never pick on someone smarter than you or they will grow up and freeze you with their ray-gun. Writer Zack Whedon was co-writer for the web series, and yes, he is related to Joss Whedon, so you’d better tell your comic book guy to stick this one is your saver, cause the Buffy-natics are going to be all over this one.

droneDrone #1 (Red 5 Comics)

Writer: Scott Chitwood, Artist:Randy Kintz

You could say that this comic is very topical right now. It was inspired by real-life events that took place in recent history. Writer Scott Chitwood said in an interview with The Comic Book Bin that he read a story in the news about drones in Afghanistan being controlled by soldiers in the U.S. and it got his wheels-a-turning. Drone is about a couple of hackers who unwittingly become rescue heroes because of a peeping-tom-style hack that they got themselves into. What makes this comic great is that it is still a great robo-story, which Red 5 is known for with their extremely popular, Atomic Robo. I’m sure the big wigs at Red 5 are worried that people will start to think this company is a one-trick robo-pony, but who says that would be a bad thing? Plus, Drone is way different, so there.

Invincible #68 (Image Comics)invincible_cov68

Writer: Robert Kirkman, Artist: Ryan Ottley

Kirkman is gearing up for the big Vultrimite war, and in this issue we see what the prelude to war is doing to our moody hero. Invincible must know what is coming and he’s got a bit of the P.M.S. about it. Issue #68 is chock-fulla city smashing goodness, complete with the requisite 50-foot-tall dinosaur. It is being touted as a great jumping-on point for any of you noobs out there that have been a little gun shy about picking up another superhero title. So, if you haven’t already been reading Incinvible, well, then you’re stupid, but that is beside the point. You can get a little less stupid by picking up issue #68.
