Indubitable Issues and Pull List (01/24/18)

LOOKING FOR BOOKS TO BUY THIS WEEK?  

LOOK NO FURTHER.  

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

 
Josh’s Recommendation…
Legion #1
“Pretty much entirely because of the FX TV show by Noah Hayley, I’m curious as to what Marvel can do to capitalize on that crossover interest. ‘Legion’ is weird, eclectic, and personal, which is mostly anthetical to Big 2 Superhero comics. But, if anyone can bring some necessary weirdness and introspection to an X-Men comic, it’s Peter Mulligan.”

This Week’s Finest: Ice Cream Man #1

IceCreamMan1

By W.Maxwell Prince, Martin Morazzo, Chris O’Halloran, Good Old Neon

As much as I love Ohio (where I was born and raised), I always have two fears nagging me in the back of my mind: spiders (of which at least half a dozen poisonous ones reside in Ohio according to Google), and creepy adults. Growing up, I was always told to watch out for strangers, don’t stay out past dark, and not to follow people into unfamiliar territory. It’s relatively good advice for a child, but these days you never know who exactly to trust and who has someone chained up in their basement.

Ice Cream Man #1 perfectly encapsulates my fears while also making a strong new debut for Image Comics and its creators… Continue reading This Week’s Finest: Ice Cream Man #1

The Divided States of Hysteria Collection Review

DividedStatesHysteriaTP

By Howard Chaykin, Jesus Aburtov, Wil Quintana, Ken Bruzenak

For those not familiar with Howard Chaykin, he is a longtime professional of the comic industry going as far back as the 1970’s, known primarily for heavily violent/sexual works and stark political views. While I have very limited reading experiences of his body of work, I had the fortune of meeting him in person briefly at a comic-con. As such, I can attest that he lives up to the blunt and nonchalant persona he portrays in interviews. All of this is to give background and context for the review of his Image miniseries, The Divided States of Hysteria. Continue reading The Divided States of Hysteria Collection Review
