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.


Creepy #3 (Dark Horse Comics)creepy

Writers: Various, Artists: Various

Dark Horse had done an amazing job at raising this eerie (pun intended) comic up from the beyond. The premier issue was so good that I immediately went out and bought Volume One of the reissues and began my search for original pressings of the 1960s era horror magazine. Issue #2 is just as delicious. There is a laundry list of top-named writers attached to this vignette style comic. If you love horror comics, hell if you just kind of like horror comics, you’ll be very impressed with this book. Then you’ll be buying Uncle Creepy t-shirts and having dreams about killing your cheatin’ spouse by poisoning him slowly. The price is $4.99, but it is well worth it, since it is twice as big as your average comic… and twice as awesome.

goonGoon #33 (Dark Horse Comics)

Writer: Eric Powell, Artist: Eric Powell

This is very exciting. I really can’t remember when the last issue of Goon Came out. I know Eric Powell takes his time getting it done, but wow. It is always worth the wait, though. Powell’s noir-esque charcoal art is beyond amazing. His humorous depiction of the undead, also known as “slack-jaws” inspires a strong desire to punch the heads off any unwitting zombies that happen to cross your path. Franky is by far my favorite sidekick in a comic. The lil’ squirt has more bite in him than even the most vicious Mafioso. There is no coming back from the pain he causes. Issue #33 is just as every bit outstanding as the previous 32 issues, so you don’t want to miss out. Be warned, however, you can’t unsee what you will see in the pages of The Goon.
