Just one whole comic this week. So, I have another story from my many adventures as a comic book store clerk to share with you all.
It’s time to find some new stories and this week I’m plopping my money down on 2 from Image - cuz they actually put out some good shit - and I like variety. One deals in the supernatural and the other in sci-fi. Good enough for me.
Nothing for this week I just dig this cover. And since there’s nothing for the week I’ll just reach into my bag of stories from the time I was a clerk at a comic book shop in the 90s to share with you all.
Angelic is the story of a flying, talking monkey hybrid named Qora. She lives in a place where most are subservient to a religious few and worship an unfair god. She goes around questioning everything is punished with more chores for it. She will be a bride in a prearranged marriage that to a male priest named Alfer.…
I’ve read the previews and seen some of the pages for Maestros and I’m reminded of Geoff Darrow’s work. This looks gorgeous and the story has a vibrant pop to it, so I’m in.
I like this cover. I like the writer. I like the plot. So, Imma buy me this comic.
Some creators don’t get the readership they deserve. Scott McCloud is well known for his seminal graphic novel Understanding Comics. He followed this book up with Making Comics and Reinventing Comics. But as the creator/writer/artist of Zot! and now The Sculptor, I don’t ever hear people talk about him. True, he gets…
In The Shed
Well, here’s something that was expected. Spike TV has cancelled The Mist after its first season. Poor ratings out of the starting gate never improved on this different take of the Stephen King novella by the same name which was adapted to film prior to this series.
With few comics on my list this week, I’ll dig into my bag of stories as a comic book store clerk to regale you kids with.
Actor K.J. Apa who plays Archie in the CW’s Riverdale was in a car wreck last week after a long 16 hour day on-set outside Vancouver, Canada.
I think its great when you can take scripture and invert it to something dark. This week its a double shot of Cullen Bunn for me (I guess I’m a fan). With this from After Shock Comics and another from Boom! Studios. In other news, I think I’ll be going to see IT for a second time since I like it - see what I did there…
Harrow County is without a doubt one of the best horror comics out there. Hell, one of the best comics period! I look forward to each issue’s release like its my own personal little Christmas.
The vessel The Orville from the new series The Orville staring whatshisname, looks like a bottle opener to me. Like if you could crack open a few cold ones at the same time with this... thing. Too bad I can’t make some scratch out of
my this idea.
Contrary to popular belief, catnip does NOT have the same ecstatic effect on all cats alike. I had one cat who seemed to orgasm every time I fed her this stuff. At times, I ended giving her less because of the intense reaction. Another cat of mine did not react to the stuff at all. Her bowel movements garnered a…
Its funny but I thought I would’ve dropped this one by now, yet its still worth the read. I don’t think any other comic that I can remember has done so much by avoiding the main story for so long.
This week I’ll do something a little different since I’m only picking up ONE COMIC. In fact, I’ll probably do more of this whenever there’s room - like this week - so as to keep this little blog going.
I’ve been waiting for this one for some time. Like the Hernandez Bros. with their comic Love & Rockets, I truly admire Matt Wagner for the continued effort to stay with the one story throughout the decades. I can’t wait to dig into this one.
It’s that time of the week again and this time I have a few more picks than in recent weeks. So, let’s get to it!
My picks for this week are slim. I’m still waiting on My Friend Dahmer GN to arrive at home. I thought I’d have it in my hands since last week but, oh well. World Reader has been a fun story. Issue number 5 is out this week and I can’t wait to dig into it.
