Buy These Comics! December 9, 2009

Posted on 07 December 2009 by LoryGil

Can you believe it is already the end of the year? I’m still reeling from Halloween! Well, if you are trying to come up with ideas for presents, Buy These Comics!

Day Tripper #1 (Vertigo Comics) day-tripper

Writers: Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá, Artists: Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá

Brazilian comic creators Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá are stepping into the scene with a brilliant indie comic that is full of poetic imagery and visual dialog. It reads not entirely unlike a novella of sorts. Moon and Bá have a writing style that can be matched to writers of a century ago. Day Tripper is about a man, wallowing in his destiny, and trying to find the meaning of it all. This book is not for the faint of heart or the fanboy who only reads cape n’ cowl comics. It is heavy laden with emotional turmoil and internal retrospect. It is breathtaking and original, but not what one would consider a lighthearted romp, but neither was The Road, but only a total suck-head would think it was boring. If you are somewhat intelligent, pick up a copy of this book. I have a feeling it is going to be a hit and you don’t want to miss out on the premier issue.

pilot-season Pilot Season: Murderer #1 (Top Cow Comics)

Writer: Robert Kirkman, Artist: Marc Silvestri

Kirkman is fast replacing Warren Ellis as the guy who writes a butt-load of comics every month. Pilot Season’s first story, Murderer, is the story of a guy whose “super power” is that he can hear everyone’s thoughts. Think of the movie What Women Want, take out all of the chick-flick fodder, add a bit of Jack the Ripper and you’ll be close. The story is well written, as everything by Kirkman is, and artist Marc Silvestri utilizes his talent for facial expressions to the limit. This is sure to be a big hit around the office. Especially when you explain to your coworkers how you really connect with the character’s hatred of everyone and desire to kill in order to make the voices in his head stop. Pilot Season is an annual event around Top Cow’s water cooler. Six new premier one-shots are released and fans get to vote for which comic they want to see as a regular title. This one is a keeper, for sure. So after you’ve read Murderer, be sure to hop on over to Top Cow and tell them how much you love it!

Tank Girl: Dark Nuggets One-Shot (Image Comics) tankgirldn_c1

Writer: Alan Martin, Artist: Rufus Dayglo

I was reading Tank Girl comics long before I was reading comics. Way back then, I though the incredible team of Jamie Hewlett and Alan Martin were an anomaly, that Tank Girl was one-of-a-kind. Well, hundreds of comics later, I still feel the same about my punky little princess. I’ve read nearly everything Tank Girl. Hell, I even shaved my head for a few years, leaving only a few tufts behind in homage to my animated role-model. For years, I read crappy versions of TG, written by crap heads that couldn’t tell a tank from a hole in their butt, in an attempt to recapture that feelings of joy and violence. But alas, no one could write the way Martin did. But guess what, my post-apocalyptic friends? Martin is back and writing as witty as ever. With Rufus Dayglo penning the magic, there is no stopping this train…er, tank. The duo has honed their skills over the past year, that is to say… Martin has coached Dayglo on the art of being less of a Hewlett copycat, and Dark Nuggets is a perfect example of why you should be reading this comic. If you love tanks and poop and nonsense, you will love Tank Girl.
