Welcome again to another amazing week of things I like and things I don’t like. This will end up being the most fun and best article each week cause you know, who doesn’t like to complain about things right?
Supporting artists by buying the stuff they give away for free already.
Hands down, artists who create great work and just give it away are awesome. So what’s a good way to send them an appreciation? Buy the free stuff when it becomes available.
Barrier #1 and #2 hit stands this week and there’s no better way to send Brian K. Vaughn and Marcos Martin a thank you buy buying a copy or two.
I don’t know about the rest of you all but I loved Fraggle Rock. Well, it’s back from BOOM! Studios in comic book form.
It’s also being done in watercolor art. I love water colors and there’s no better way to appreciate a childhood nostalgia than great artwork of some Jim Henson classic characters.
Superheroes getting married.
Every time I think about the story lines where fictional superheroes marry their love interest (usually another superhero) I barf a little in my mouth.
For me, it’s just the filler story lines because they have nothing else better to write. Batman and Catwoman are getting married, sure it’s creating some buzz but quite frankly I don’t care, it won’t last. At least I can’t see it lasting. Don’t worry though, I’ll buy to flip for all the suckers out there though but doesn’t mean I still have to like it.
Now we have Kitty Pride marrying Colossus. Who cares? Get on with the story already and stop writing stupid soap drama story lines.
Cates has been great so far for Marvel. I hope they’re paying him well. He’s practically boosted sales of characters most likely wouldn’t even bother picking up.
What I don’t like is him ending books (Thanos). But what I do like is him picking up new titles to write.
I’ve never been that much into Venom. I think he’s a great villain when he appears in Amazing Spider-Man. Here’s to hoping Cates and create some buzz and make him more interesting in his own stand alone series, a series I wouldn’t even bother with but will now pick up only because Cates is writing it starting with a new Venom #1. I don’t like the reboot though.
I don’t like the number of variants though, so of course it’s just Cover A for me. But then again, if I did get a variant cover, I’d have to go with Paolo Rivera’s variant (if I can snag at cover price). I like Paolo’s art, I think it’s underrated.
Well, that’s a wrap of all the things I like and don’t like this week. Let us know what’s bothering you or what you love about this week.
