It’s about eight minutes to midnight and I need to go to bed, and I haven’t finished reading all my books. At least I made it through all my Indies.
Limbo No. 1 really surprised me. It’s a pulp crime noir with an 80s feel. And it has voodoo and lizard meat. Buy it.
Last Sons of America imagines a dystopian future where China sterilised the American population, leading to an exploiting and capitalist market for children.
Bad Moon Rising continues with its werewolf driven lunar cycle.
I’d like to quote Jason Aaron’s ‘The Goddamned’, but I’m not ready to take on The Theists. They’re too powerful.
Descender No. 7 is by far one of the best sci-fi comics out there now. Plus now it has TIM-21 and TIM-22 (not to be confused with Thing 1 and Thing 2).
Looks like we have not seen the last of Tad Ledbetter in Image Comic’s Southern Bastards (last seen taking a brutal coma inducing beating for befriending Earl Tubb). He is now marshaling his troops for revenge.
I also picked up Birthright No. 11, The Walking Dead No. 148 (only two away from 150), and Faster Than Light no. 3. All excellent reads.
And now the quotes:
“Trust me you come here for the lizard on a stick, not the warmth of the locals.”
“Uncover the truth. Every truth you can. That’s the only way. The only way to find out what lurks beneath the surface.”
Dan Watters, with Art Drawn by Caspar Wijngaard, Limbo No. 1, Image Comics
“Children are the most valuable resource now.”
Phillip Kennedy Johnson, with art by Matthew Dow Smith, Last Sons of America No. 1, BOOM! STUDIOS
“The Secret to Dreams is that you need good people in your life to make ’em real.”
Scott Rosenberg, with Art by Ty Dazo, Bad Moon Rising No. 2, 451 #ImaginationToBurn
“A good player is a Soldier. And with enough Soldiers–What you’ve got is an Army.”
Jason Latour, Art by Chris Brunner, Southern Bastards, No. 12, Image Comics
