It’s that time again, to buy more comics to your ever growing collections. Some of you collect, others sell to then only buy more. Whatever and however you collect comic books, this here is Poyo’s picks of the week.
Flash #12 (DC) – Williamson has made Flash a winner in my opinion and I’ve enjoyed reading this new Rebirth title, which is coming down as the best of them.
Hawkeye #1 (Marvel) – Kate Bishop is back as Hawkeye.. well, she was always Hawkeye, I think, now I’m confused, she’s Hawkeye but she’s not.. but she is. Well, she’s back and I guess she is Hawkeye now since well, Clint isn’t around for her to save.. unless he makes an appearance. Regardless, I love Kate Bishop so, there you have it.
I’m particularly eyeing the Aja Variant, just a sweet classic print style cover. Love it.
Small Publisher Pick
Green Valley #3 (Image) – I love this new series. Max Landis has a hit on his hands, at least in my opinion. If your not reading it, pick it up already. I think this one deserves more credit it’s not getting, at least I think. I’ve been working so much, I have had zero time to read comic book related articles so I’m kind of out of the loop lately.
Indie Pick of the Week
Motor Girl #2 (Abstract Studios) – From the creator writer/artist of Rachel Rising, #1 sold out almost every where online. It’s a new Terry Moore book and expect lower print runs on #2, so grab’em if you find them.
So now I end with my rant on Black Mask. Yes, Black Mask. The guys who had a slew of new comics come out, great comics in fact. Then did a disappearing act with almost every single title (except Space Riders, which was awesome), claimed it was resolved but yet we still see huge delays, gaps, whatever you want to call it. Is it the publisher, is it the artists or writers? Perhaps Diamond to blame.. all I know is I’m done for the most part with them until they start pushing out their books in a more consistent time frame to keep readers wondering and waiting if they’re ever gonna get to finish reading a new book sometime this century.
Young Terrorists hit stands over a year ago, August 19th to be exact. Then they throw out a 3rd print last week now since Young Terrorists #2 hits stands tomorrow. Oh thanks Black Mask, you’re so slow in releasing new books to keep your stories interesting that you try and con us comic nerds into buying your 3rd print (that’s not even in demand) to get the title back out on the shelves so people likely pick up #2 16 months after the original release? Thanks but no thanks, I lost interest in Young Terrorists about 12 months ago.. and this isn’t the only title that your losing me with.
