Of the relatively few constants humanity encounters, the unknown may be the one in which plagues the mind most. Perhaps positive, perhaps not; ultimately, the unknown simply is until it isn’t. And once known, yet another unknown rises, succeeding those which came before. Like an incurable disease, a lingering, ever mutating virus, the unknown clings to the individual and societal psyche. It’s inescapable: a cold, clinical machine, caring not if we are ready for it. Prepared or unprepared, it comes to us all the same. But it’s how we deal with the unknown that Tom King (Batman, Mister Miracle, etc.), Kevin Eastman (co-creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and Freddie Williams II (Batman/TMNT) explore in The Kamandi Challenge #9.
LOOKING FOR BOOKS TO BUY THIS WEEK?
LOOK NO FURTHER.
HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.Tyler’s Recommendation… Black Monday Murders #7
“I’ve very much enjoyed this series so far, and this issue promises that revenge is the order of the day.”
Looking back on last month’s article, I came to the realization that I tend to add more books to a list than I’m actually able to read and, in may cases, afford. There are only so many hours left at the end of the day to tackle my pull list, and, while they are a passion, comic books are not my only hobby. On top of that, I’ve been reading a lot more “older” stuff lately. This list will be more realistic, conservative towards what I think I’ll actually read. If I get to more, great! I’d love to read every good book out there.
After an almost three year hiatus (the last post came out on 4/30/14), I’ve decided to bring back my column “The Haul.” At its inception, I vowed to write something once a week. Not only did that not happen then, but I will not even pretend to make that claim again today. However, what I can promise is to pop in at least once a month for this new endeavor. When “The Haul” first debuted, it was meant as a place where I could talk about whatever was on my mind that week in the world of comics. Having that freedom was nice, but this next iteration will have better specified boundaries. By dropping a lens over this column, I can provide a clearer focus on what it is readers can expect.
