LOOKING FOR BOOKS TO BUY THIS WEEK?  

LOOK NO FURTHER.  

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

 
Josh’s Recommendation…
Luke Cage #1
“If there’s anyone I trust to be writing a Luke Cage solo series, its David Walker. There’s no better time for this series, not the least of which the awareness the Netflix show garnered for the character. I have high hopes for this title, and with Walker’s previous work on Shaft and the past ‘Heroes for Hire’ run, it’s sure to impress.”

powermanandironfistsweetchristmasannualPower Man and Iron Fist Sweet Christmas Annual #1
“It’s time to get in the Christmas spirit and have a few laughs along the way. Power Man and Iron Fist has been one of the year’s best Marvel comics. If you have yet to experience it’s greatness what better time than picking up a Christmas special and seeing what all the fuss is about.”

This Weeks Finest Year Three

Power Man & Iron Fist 1 Theotis Jones(resize)As we’ve done in years past, I’ve decided to do a numerical analysis on our This Week’s Finest picks at Nothing But Comics for the sites third year. This writing will focus on the writers, artist and publishers who were selected for This Weeks Finest. That said, though it will be similar to the last two posts, there have been some changes to take note of. For the majority of the year, picking This Week’s Finest has been done by three different writers as opposed to years past where there where as many as seven of us picking books. Alex & Dean were still participating in This Week’s Finest at the beginning of the year so the numbers will be skewed a bit in terms of who chose what. Another change is our disclosure policy that we implemented shortly into the start of our third year. Nothing But Comics continues to grow and as such, more publishers are giving us comics for review. In the publisher section, I’ll address this further in the context of the section. Lastly, we all at Nothing But Comics have done a bad job in the past of crediting colorist and the work they did. We’ve made an effort to rectify that in the past year but initially, some of our This Week’s Finest posts still weren’t crediting colorist. As such, I won’t be covering it in this years post but plan on doing so for future postings. Now on to the data, where one publisher came back strong, a few creators made their This Weeks Finest debut’s on multiple occasions and one writer went from being honored zero times last time around to having tied for the most in year three.

This Week’s Finest: Nighthawk #4

382538._SX640_QL80_TTD_by David Walker, Ramon Villalobos & Tamra Bonvillain

In the recent past, the idea of writing “dark” or “modern” superhero comics has fallen out of favor for the zeitgeist and with good reason. After the meteoric shock that was Watchmen, The Dark Knight Returns, Batman Year One & The Killing Joke; comics post bronze age took a turn towards more mature themes and complicated protagonist. Some of it was good and some of it was bad; but the sheer amount of material following that template felt overwhelming. After the unmitigated failure of the New 52 publishing initiative, where DC Comics took a very misguided approach to modernizing their superhero’s with a near homogenous overtone of angst permeating the majority of their series, superhero comics swung the other way; perhaps best exemplified in the most recent DC Rebirth initiative where the more well rounded approach to it’s hero’s has helped lead the publisher in having some of their most successful comics series debuts in years. But dark, modern and realistic aren’t bad themes for superhero comics in and of themselves. It just takes a little bit more then that; it need’s an immediacy to it’s realism, a voice that’s in tune with it’s overarching thematic structure and it need’s to be absolutely fearless. Enter Nighthawk #4. Continue reading This Week’s Finest: Nighthawk #4

Island10The Island #10
“Ten issues in and Island is still going strong. This month we get new goodies from Fil Barlow, Farel Dalrymple, and Gael Betrand. This anthology is the best source for discovering new voices in comics. Graham and Rios have done us all a huge favor by showcasing talented writers and artists who operate outside the mainstream.”
