This Weeks Finest Year Two

ThunderworldLast year, Cosmo looked at our first year of This Weeks Finest picks by the numbers. He examined the data on the creators, publishers and titles chosen by the NBC staff for each week of our first year. Based on his numerical analysis, we were able to see our very eclectic taste in comics based on our combined choices for This Weeks Finest. I decided to do something similar this year and looking at the numbers, there’s far less parity in our second year then the first. Grant Morrison came back, Scott Snyder did a horror comic with Jock, all those books announced at the Image Expo’s started coming out regularly and the Nothing But Comics staff went crazy for all that.  Continue reading This Weeks Finest Year Two

One of the many things I love about Gotham Academy is the myriad of ways it surprises me every month. At first the idea of adding yet another character to the cast, let alone an actual member of the Bat-family, could seem unnecessary and pandering. The utilization of said character into the world of the comic (instead of the reverse) makes this my favorite comic this week.

This is not what I expected. The Dying and the Dead was incredible, Sex Criminals was hilarious, Batman was epic, Flash Gordon was ending and Zero was brutally violent. But in the end, this week I enjoyed the mystery, the drama, the fun and the adventure of Gotham Academy #4 above them all.

You will know by my pull list history I do not pull many DC books. I will jump on a book for a while and end up dropping it after a handful of issues. However, Gotham Academy has been a refreshing surprise. Becky Coolan brings her fantastic writing skills to this teen drama. You won’t find anything like this at DC, which is strange to say about a book that leads with “Gotham”
