We shouldn’t just collect or flip books, we should also read them. A good story can make your purchase well worth the money spent if you ask me. After all, we buy books to read for entertainment right? Even if you can’t flip them, reading is just as rewarding.
Alan Moore’s classic Batman story, The Killing Joke, is getting made into an animated film. The some times over the top Joker story is really considered one of the seminal Joker stories. SO why not get one of the most famous voices for the Joker to voice act him. Continue reading “Mark Hamill to voice Joker in Killing Joke”
I have been off for the Columbus day holiday this past weekend and spent some time with the family. Didn’t get to do much of my weekend writing so I am trying to catch up. I was not in New York this weekend but kept up on the news coming out of NYCC. The news I was most excited to hear is that Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman’s seminal work, Miracle Man would be returning to print and Neil Gaiman would finally be finishing his story line.

This week is another good week for comics. There are a lot of new books coming out and some tried and true favorites. Here is what I think will pop and what I am keeping my eye on:
1. Occupy Comics- The second book to be produced by Black Mask Studios. I do not get political and I know this is a political book, while I may or may not agree with the issues, the line-up on this book is amazing. Alan Moore and David Lloyd (the ‘V for Vendetta’ team working togerther again), Charlie Adlard (‘The Walking Dead’), Art Spiegelman (‘Maus’).
2. Bounce #1 – A new Image #1 written by ‘Sex’ writer Joe Casey. Sure ‘Sex’ has gotten mixed reviews, but this looks to be a more real world alternative to Spider-man.
3. Half Past Danger #1 – Pulp books have been hot (Black Beetle) and this combination of Ninjas, Dinosaurs, and chicks looks to be a fun read and good pick up. The fact it did not show up on the Diamond Comics Advanced Reorder list gives me hoe it was under-ordered.
Other books to pick up this week:
A book to pick up for name alone: I love Mike Mignola books, so the new Lobster Johnson book is on my pull list anyway. But if I was to get a book based on name alone it would be ‘Lobster Johnson: Satan Smells a Rat’.
Revival #10 – Great series from Image continues to be hot and a good engaging read.
Sex #3 – Mixed reviews but waiting for the story to unfold.
Minature Jesus #2 – Book #1 was intriging can’t wait to see how this story continues
Five Ghosts Haunting of Fabian Gray #3 – Great book and great art. The 2nd print covers and Phantom covers have become my favorite covers.
Nowhere Men #5 – Prices have cooled off a bit, but this is just a top notch book. Kind of a ‘What If?’ story for the Fantastic Four for modern times.
Sixth Gun #31 – Prices dropped off after the announcement of the show being cancled, but people still want the book and it is stil a fun read.
