Tyler’s Recommendations: 
Donald Duck #3
‘The Siege of Nothing Atoll’-when an island-dwelling mad scientist sics his super-weapons on Scrooge’s Money Bin, it’s up to Donald to take the bad guy down!
“IDW has done a fine job bringing back the spirit of my favorite Disney character. This issue starts a new adventure where Donald finds himself as the only line of defense against a mad scientist set on stealing Uncle Scrooge’s money bin. At 40 pages, these issues are a great value, containing a mixture of short and long-form stories of Duckberg’s most famous son.”

Mark Millar will doing a project with Rafeal Albuquerque titled Huck that will debut in the Fall of 2015 “Do you remember those old ’80s movies — ‘Back to the Future,’ ‘Indiana Jones’? — don’t they just feel great every time we look at them? ‘Huck’ really brings that feel….”He helps people in his small-town community. He’s just special in all kinds of ways. He’s not only a great heart, but he also has some special powers. He’s much stronger than a normal person. He’s much faster.”

This Week’s Finest: Southern Bastards #9

Southern Bastards 9
Tony Moore

By Jason Aaron & Jason Latour

This week begins the third arc of Jason Aaron & Jason Latour’s acclaimed series Southern Bastards. The new arc is entitled “Homecoming,” a name which could be taken literally. The story opens in the days leading up to the high school homecoming game against arch-rivals Wetumpka County. However, it has another, deeper meaning as well. It also suggests an emotional homecoming. The second arc, “Gridiron,” focused on the past, depicting how Euliss Boss went from nobody to the most powerful individual in Craw County. Based on the first chapter, “Homecoming” is also interested in the past, yet in a different way. Where “Gridiron” concentrated on the events of years ago, “Homecoming” is more concerned with the legacy of past actions.

#9 also shifts central characters. The first arcs were focused on antagonists Earl Tubb and Coach Boss, each of whom dominated the narrative of those initial 8 issues. Now, though, Aaron turns his attention to Sheriff Hardy whose previous appearances had been mostly restricted to hanging about in the background. Most memorable was his presence at Earl’s death in #4. The manner in which he held back from intervening in Earl’s murder indicated that he was beholden to Coach Boss, while his facial expression suggested that his feelings about unfolding events were actually much more complicated. As readers discover in #9, Sheriff Hardy is very much a man uncomfortable with the person that he has become.

cThors #1
Jason Aaron has a wonderful history of writing a story with multiple Thors. Although this is a little bit different than the early work he did on his Thor run, I’m sure it will be just as enjoyable to read. Don’t miss out on the man who was born to write Thor.
