So in the wake of all of my MVC3 character analyses (plural?) I almost forgot to focus in on comic books! This Wednesday, today, I need to get comics. Lots of comics, but not too many because Christmas is coming up and I need to get things for others. You know, Jesus’ birthday and all.
Dark Horse Comics
Mighty Samson #1: The art looks great and I like Samson. He’s super strong and smites non-believers in the name of God the Almighty. I like pseudo-historical religious comics. I’m looking forward to this.
Green Lantern #60: This comic takes place partially in Michigan. That’s all I need to know. Hal Jordan = Least favorite Green Lantern though. He just rubs me the wrong way.
Green Lantern Emerald Warriors #5: Guy Gardner on the other hand is my favorite Green Lantern and I’m really enjoying the emotional struggle between his will power and his rage. Which will come out dominant? I don’t know, but I can’t wait to find out!
Black Panther The Man Without Fear #513: This book looks like the gritty urban Marvel Knights Black Panther from the early 90’s. I liked that Black Panther. He was awesome.
Chaos War #4: I really love this series. Khoi Pham is drawing the living crap out of it! All the different pantheons fighting the God Squad… awesome. Done.
Mouse Guard Black Axe #1: Done by David Peterson, a local Michigander, this series has exploded in the few years since it’s release. I have both hard cover copies of Fall and Winter signed by this esteemed creator. I will be purchasing this!
