Read These, Burn the Rest – August 25th, 2010

Sweet Jesus, this has been a week.  As have all other weeks been weeks themselves.  Not a whole lot I’m recommending this week.  Not because there isn’t plenty good out there, but because this is in my limited experience what I would say would be cool to read.  Oh, and fire bad, etc.




Justice League: Generation Lost #8 – Honestly, this book captures all the charm of the old Justice League International (which I’ve only read in bits and pieces but I know that shit was good.)  I really want to see Booster cave Max’s face in.

*

Superman/Batman #75 – Fancy-ass 75th issue!  Lex Luthor is still a total douchebag and it’s up to Superman and Batman to stop him.  Truly these are the innovative stories we have been looking for.

*

Invincible #74 – After an incredible disemboweling, Mark is back on his feet.  Ain’t nothin’ gonna kill this sumbitch.  Now he has to kill the Kryptonians Viltrumites!

*

Science Dog Special #1 - I still can’t understand why we don’t have a Science Dog comic right now.  They let Kirkman do Battle Pope, for God’s sake.  Let Science Dog fly.

*

Deadpool Team-Up #890 – I recommend this purely for the fact that Machine Man is THE man.  He hates human beings and he loves to drink.  He’s like Bender in superhero form.

*

Avengers #4 – Given that time-travel is involved, give up all hope, all ye who enter here.  All villains from all time periods doing all sorts of awful things.  Seriously.

*

Thor #613 – Even when he’s dead, Loki is a colossal dick who can’t leave well enough alone and needs to make his brother suffer.

*

Jamie’s Pick

Invincible, Vol. 13: Growing Pains – Allen the Alien and Nolan(Invincible’s father) travel through the universe to collect threats to the Viltrumites. Atom Eve struggles with, umm…something. Oliver continues to grow. And Invincible considers a costume change. This all leads up to the Viltrumite war that is currently going on in the series.
