Read These, Burn the Rest – Week of April 24th, 2013
Here are the comics/collections that come out today that you should check out and why you should do so.
Amala’s Blade #1 - This is a story of an assassin that gets sent on a suicide mission by her boss for drawing too much attention to herself. Sounds interesting doesn’t it? I have this on my iPad right now, because Dark Horse is awesome like that, so I’ll let you know what I think of it.
Batman Inc. 10 - This is here because I love Batman, and if I remember correctly this is the series where all the Batmen co-exists with one another.
Creep, The HC - A collection of The Creep #0-4, a story where a detective is trying to solve the deaths of two teen-aged boys.
Fury Max #11 - I’m rolling the dice on one Marvel comic this week and it’s this one. It seems to be telling an adult oriented story, and I can apreciate that.
Invincible #102 - I didn’t really even expect Thragg to still be alive. I need to pick this back up.
Jupiter’s Legacy #1 - Mark Millar, blah blah blah. This is getting a ton of hype because of his name. Not because it’s about the children of super heroes trying to live up to their parent’s reputations, but because Millar wrote it. I wonder when the movie comes out. If this isn’t amazing it should get CRUSHED by the comics media.
Massive, The #11 - Another Brian Wood book. I have the first volume of this and need to read it soon. Buy it because Wood writes great stuff. I did read a bunch of Conan the Barbarian, like I said I would last week and it’s pretty awesome. I expect The Massive is too.
Mind MGMT #10 - I’m currently reading the first volume of this and it’s pretty great. It’s like if the programs in that movie The Men Who Stare at Goats actually worked and created super-humans with various powers of mind manipulation.
Talon #7 - Scott Snyder is great, and I remember the introduction of this character in Batman. He was pretty bad-ass I also love owls, so there’s something there.
TMNT #21 - Well, let’s see, it’s TMNT, so if you grew up in the 80’s you’re familiar with the characters. The first couple arcs were well done, and one of the original creators is still involved. Check this out.
