Quotes #NCBD 12/23/2015 (@ImageComics)

Just wrapped up about three weeks worth of Image books, so again some overlap here with titles from the last two weeks.

This week I picked up Deadly Class #17, Invisible Repubic #8, Jupiter’s Circle #2, Nameless #6, Outcast #14, and Pretty Deadly #7. I also picked up over the past two weeks The Tithe #7, The Violent #1, Goddamned #2, Descender #8, Tokyo Ghost #4, and Monstress #2.

ViolentNo1Who knew Canada has a Brooklyn too. Too many of us Americans are ignorant of our northern neighbor. The Violent #1 gives us a sneak peek at the underworld up North in Vancouver.  Someday, when I get a chance I’ll take a trip to Strathcona to see what it’s all about.

Here are the quotes:


“… they just spread like hipster herpes and now I can barely afford to pay my own rent because Strathcona is ‘Vancouver’s Brooklyn.'”

Quotes #NCBD 12/23/2015 (@BoomStudios)

The holidays are nearly over, and I got a nice thick stack of comics to make my way through before year end, but I did catch up with my Boom!Studios comics.

I look to them primarily for two genres: crime noir and sci-fi. This past week I picked up three sci-fi titles (after all comic books and sci-fi go together like bread and butter).

Venus #1 chronicles the colonization of Mars by a US team of space explorers competing against a superior China Space Program. This is not a what if, but more of a what may likely be.

Arcadia is a virtual world of uploaded human souls, who are aware of their new digital existence.  The catch: true power still remains in the hands of the few and the subservient ‘Meat’ continue to exist to serve and maintain the virtual world.

I can’t wait to see this one as animated feature.  It’s H.G. Wells’ ‘War of the Worlds’ meets ‘Animal Farm’. This is the second chapter of ‘Wild’s End’ titled ‘The Enemy Within’. It’s already on issue #4 of 6. If you missed this one, pick up the graphic novel.

Here are the quotes:


“When you’re a kid you’re encouraged to think of human lives as stories. You know the drill: Be good, study hard, and you might enjoy ten whole minutes of Happily Ever After before they find a lump in your prostate.”

“What do these desperate rubes give you for your wolf tickets …”

Arcadia #7, Boom!Studios
Written by: Alex Paknadel
Illustrated by: Eric Scott Pfeiffer
Letters by: Colin Bell


“Now it’s time for America to cut a path to the future, to ensure that our way of life endures.”

Venus #1, Boom!Studios
Written by: Rick Loverd
Illustrated by: Huan Danlan
Colors by: Marcio Menyz
Letters by: Colin Bell


“Le bon Dieu est dans le detail.”

Wild’s End: The Enemy Within #4, Boom!Studios

Quotes #NCBD 12/23/2015 (@ValiantComics)

Not sure why they keep referring to Valiant Entertainment as Marvel 2.0. As far as I am concerned they are a whole different thing altogether standing on their own.

Three titles out this week:

Bloodshot #9 concludes the ‘Hunt’ arc, and leaves a mystery unanswered.

Jen Van Meter and Roberto de la Torre are back together for The Death Defying Doctor Mirage Second Lives mini series.

Rai # 12 wraps up the ‘Orphan’ arc, and sets the stage for the next blockbuster chapter 4001 AD–gotta wait til the summer of 2016 for the next installment though.

I also caught up with my Valiant titles from last week: Ivar Timewalker #12, Imperium #11, and Wrath of the Eternal Warrior #2.

Here are the quotes:


“Not sure teaming up with a gen-modded spider alien to Fight the Power was such a good idea.”

“Incendiary Fast-Strike Rounds have feelings too you know!!!”

To quote Al Ewing, “The word of the day is ‘Cosmic‘.” I finally caught up with my Marvel stack. There are at least two weeks worth of reading in this post, so there is some overlap from last week’s releases.

Daredevil is back, a little meaner, with Matt Murdoch now a grizzly battle hardened prosecutor–plus a sidekick.

The Ultimates continues their cosmic story, with the team taking on the world devourer, Galactus, with life bringing success.

Spider Gwen gets life advice from Spider Woman, and the Goblin makes a guest appearance.

Deadpool goes all detective to find the traitor who set him up.

The Guardians are at the mercy of Hala, as Spartax faces an imminent planetary death.

Quotes For #NCBD 12/02/2015 (@BoomStudios)

I picked up two @BOOMSTUDIOS titles this week.  Both were excellent.

What self-respecting eighties kid did not love Jim Henson. He gifted to our world Sesame Street (Grover, Oscar the Grouch, Bert and Ernie, Cookie Monster, and Big Bird), The Muppet Show (Kermit the Frog, Rowlf the Dog, and Ernie), Fraggle Rock, The Dark Crystal, and Labyrinth.

He also created The StoryTeller, a British live-action/puppet television series that originally aired in 1988. It retold European folk tales using a combination of actors and puppets. I have to confess I’ve never seen it. I think I may have heard of it, but that could be wishful thinking on my part–but now I’m on a quest to dig these old episodes up.

Thanks to @BOOMSTUDIOS and @Archaia for bringing The Storyteller stateside via their graphic novels and comic books. In its latest iteration, the focus is on dragons; and whats not to love–mythic tales of dragons told with humor and pathos.

Rowan’s Ruin, on the other hand, is about a young American woman taking on the paranormal in the UK. The mystery takes a twisted turn, as Katie raids the “microfiches one last time.”

Here are the quotes:


“Most fathers often struggle with being too hard or too soft on their children.”

 

“His father’s love knew no bounds. Everything he had done was for him.”

 

Story and Art by Daniel Bayliss, Scripted by Fabian Rangel Jr., Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons #1, BOOM!STUDIOS


“So. Hamlet. Wow. He’s like a mirror for the whole human condition, isn’t he.”

 

“I’m gonna raid the microfiches one last time.”

 

Mike Carey, with Art by Mike Perkins, Rowan’s Ruin #3, BOOM!STUDIOS
