Hey gang, it’s your favorite comic book picker on CHU. Anthony’s great guy but admit it, you guys love me more, but if you saw what I looked like you might not, so that’s going to remain a mystery for as long as possible. Just imagine what Anthony looks like but uglier.. that’s me!
Anyway, I’ve been so busy with work, I almost forgot bout these dang picks this week until Anthony texted me, demanding more out of his non-paid CHU employees (evil, evil Anthony, I had to take time out of paid employment to do this). Anthony doesn’t pay me, feed me or provide me with quarters.. so why do I do this? I honestly do not know.. Maybe I just like Anthony. Or maybe.. just maybe, I like being wrong each week. That’s probably it, but I might be wrong about that since I’m always wrong. Except for when I am right.
Enough of my ramblings, on with the picks.
Flash #25 (DC) – Not much to pick from this week but I’m still on board with Flash. This is the start of a new arc, with Reverse Flash, so hopefully the story continues to be nothing but awesomesauce (yeah, I stole that from you Adam).
There’s gonna be a million of them but yes, my pick goes to Edge of Venomverse #1. I am tired of them turning Gwen into just about every other character but I am looking forward to X-23 donning the symbiote, seems like a deadly mix and possibly interesting mix.
Small Publisher Pick
Redneck #3 (Image) – Not a spec but it’s a pick for it’s story. This has been a great and fun read. It’s got a sense of Southern Bastard type charm to it with vampires. What more could you ask for?
Eleanor and the Egret #3 (AfterShock) – I just caught up on some reading and this one surprised me. I mean, I love John Layman but I did not expect to like this one as much as I do. It’s clever, the art is great (for you Sam Keith lovers) and it’s just a great read. I’m hooked and need more.. check it out if you haven’t done so already.
That’s all I got this week. What are you picking up? What are you hating (besides my picks)? Do you hate Gwen as much as I do?
