QUOTES #NCBD 03/30/16 Ragnarok No. 8 (@IDWPublishing)

Reading Walter Simonson’s Ragnarok is like time traveling back to the comic book years of the  80’s. It’s non-stop sword and hammer action as the Dark Elf Regn and Thor team up to take on Surtr’s Firestarter Demons. Plus, as a bonus, IDW threw in at the end an awesome eight page art gallery highlighting Simonson’s pencil and ink artwork for this issue.  Don’t miss out!

Here are the quotes:


” … with a name like “The Lord of the Dead,” just how much Immortality do you think he could bestow upon anybody?”

“Faith. You should try it. I understand it works wonders.”

Quotes #NCBD 3/30/2016 s6x (@451official)

The team has finally landed on the Cartel’s chessboard nicknamed ‘Mexico’. Andi Ewington’s slow ride is coming to a crescendo, as both sides do their due diligence of intelligence gathering. I can’t wait until the next issue where the action is sure to start, with new special forces pawns entering the fray. If you missed this issue, definitely do not forego the next–and best of luck finding the first five issues, they’re worth the search.

 

 

Here are the quotes:


“You don’t mind drinking our of a brown paper bag for once, do you …”

“If it was good enough for the Lord’s only son, it’ll be good enough for your ungrateful heathen ass.”

Quotes #NCBD 3/23/2016 (DC’s Batman No. 50)

It’s been over two months since I last blogged on this site–just in time for #NCBD 3/30/16 tomorrow. Bruce Wayne is back, so I’m coming back. Nothing against Scott Snyder, who is one of the best comic book writers out there right now, but I wasn’t really digging the whole Jim Gordon as Batman in the Power Suit thing.  I am glad to have good old Bruce back, with some really cool quotes:


“It’s been a good rest, but the city is calling you. They need their Batman back.”

“Hello Jim. Who died and made you Batman.”

“But Superheroes never fix those things for us. Not even Batman. He can’t fix the real things … because he’s not Real.”

“The rest of us. We do what we can to be able to say:  ‘I was here.’

Quotes #NCBD 2/3/2016 (@451official)

Picked up Bad Moon Rising #5.  It’s really a shame that this is only a six issue limited series. This one was filling that gaping show hole left over by the season finale of Sons of Anarchy.

You can read my review at graphicpolicy.com for more details:

Review: Bad Moon Rising No. 5

Here are the quotes:


“Take the bike. She’s a righteous ride. An original fifty-seven straight leg rigid. Be good to her.”

“Nembutal, you’re my only friend.”

Quotes #NCBD 2/03/2016 (@DCcomics Vertigo)

Three DC Vertigo titles this week.  Tom King continues to impress with The Sheriff of Babylon.  Only a matter of time before this gets optioned for TV or as a movie.

Also picked up Survivor’s Club and Unfollow. Two graphic horror tales focusing on the darker side of gaming and social media.

Here are the quotes:


“Before it was just Saddam, but now we have a thousand Saddams. A Saddam on every corner, driving little Saddam cars, with Saddam guns, and Saddam bullets, and Saddam bombs, everywhere.

Quotes #NCBD 1/27/2016 (@BoomStudios)

It’s sci-fi and fantasy week at Boom!Studios. At least it is for me. Two titles this week: Wild’s End: The Enemy Within #5 and Venus #2. Plus Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Dragons #2 from last week.

Sacrifices are made in Wild’s End encounter with an invading alien force; and intrigue and secrets abound in the nascent colonization of Venus by NASA’s possible last heroes.

I highly recommend both. Buy ’em!

Here are the quotes:


“Time passes slowly in captivity, and in the darkness … The ambiguous darkness that is my current boon and my constant doom.”

“It is all vanity and resentment … and hubris.”

“All is light … until there is only darkness.”

“The books are not like this.”

Wild’s End: The Enemy Within #5, Boom!Studios
Written by: Dan Abnett
Illustrated and Lettered by: I.N.J. Culbard

“I just want to know if the A.I. sees me in the shower. And if so, what’s it think? You know out of ten.”

Quotes #NCBD 1/27/2016 (@451official)

Picked up one new title this week (s6x #3), plus two from last week: Sunflower #3 and ExMortis #3 (I still see a few issues left on the rack so buy ’em if you missed ’em, before they are gone).

In the latest installment from Pelecanos’ and Ewington’s s6x, McQuade recruits more former squad members to Sarah’s cause. The team is slowly coming together for the battle against Señor Martinez’s Cartel. Kind of like a Guns N’ Roses reunion tour, except with real Guns and Roses.

Here are the quotes:


“Nothing like a bit of hillwalking to blow the years of saturated civilian life out of the arteries.”
