Here these are the funny books I want this week! Do you think I should add the prices for each of these and total it up at the end? I’ll think on it for a week. So finally, here we are!
Baltimore: The Plague Ships #4 – Not too thrilled with the series. If it doesn’t pick up here I’m dropping it.
Strange Science Fantasy #5 – Scott Morse’s one-and-done tales tickle my fancy and are a must for anyone suffering from a serious case of Event Fatigue. I’m excited for this next installment.
Invincible #75 – The Viltrumite War is building to it’s inevitable climax, which should be awesome! but I’m worried about Eve back on the home front. GIMME!
Chaos War #3 – Herc is back and he and Earth’s mightiest heroes are throwing down with a cosmic pantheon ready to turn the universe into a burned out cinder. I love it when Hercules punches things.
Ultimate Comics New Ultimates #3 – The titles for these books are just getting ridiculous. Frank Cho’s art is brilliant but what is Thor’s deal? Guess I’ll just have to read to find out.
Warriors 3 #1 – These guys are hilarious and the fact that they’re being written by one of the most solid scribes in comics, a Mr. Bill Willingham of Fables fame, means this is a must have.
Alan Moore’s Neonomicon #2 – That scene in the first issue with the guy and the cops and the painting? So creepy. I MUST have this second issue. Plus it’s Alan Moore’s “return” to comics. Again.
The Art of Darksiders – I feel kind of funny seeing as I just filled out a Dark Horse survey that asked me what video games I would like to see turned into comics. This was one of those games, but it also asked which properties I would like to see turned into art books. This is also one of those. Joe Madureira’s art got me into comics WAY back in my day and I’m a fervent follower of all his work, but the $40 price tag will probably keep me from purchasing it.
What To Do When You Meet Cthulhu – Billed as a “survival guide” for meeting H.P. Lovecraft’s famous Elder Gods, this book sounds like a good little read. Granted I probably won’t end up purchasing it, but it does sound fun.
Xenozoic TP Complete Collection – Ever since I’ve read Panel Discussions, a brilliant book in which artists talk about their process of creating comics (there’s WAY more to it than that but I digress), I’ve wanted to read Xenozoic. Mark Schultz’s portion of the book really made we want to pick up his stuff however, like the Darksiders book, it’s $40 and I can’t really afford it right now.
