1st Issue Fetish | REYN #1 by Symons, Stockman and Little

Saw the ad for this in the backpages of Copperhead #2 (October; Image). It looks hella interesting and has me very intrigued. But I have no other details yet. I’m not even sure if beyond this sneaky advert that it’s been officially (i.e. verbally) announced to the public. All I know is its creative team is Symons, Stockman and Little. Sounds like a law firm. At any rate, I have one simple question for Image Comics: can you PLEASE cease with your mad crusade against my wallet? Sheesh! Reyn #1 will be listed in this month’s solicitations online later this … Continue reading 1st Issue Fetish | REYN #1 by Symons, Stockman and Little

10 Random Thoughts About THE MULTIVERSITY #1 + GRANT MORRISON

This isn’t a standard review, in fact, I don’t think my mind is wired for those anymore anyways. This is just a document of the random thoughts I notated as I read the book. 1. First of all, I’m hit n’ miss with Morrison. I’m also not exactly a DCU kind of superhero lover, so before giving this a try I was thinking, “It’s DC, I won’t care what’s going on, I won’t know any of the characters” and blah, blah, blah. But I pushed all of that away and got pleasantly surprised. 2. It’s science-fiction superhero comics near or … Continue reading 10 Random Thoughts About THE MULTIVERSITY #1 + GRANT MORRISON

Review: RED CITY #1 (Image Comics) by Daniel Corley and Mark Dos Santos

There’s nothing in comics I hate more than poo-pooing a new hopeful Image comic, but I just read Red City #1 and have come away a bit let down after admittedly hyping myself up for it due to its purported futuristic … Continue reading Review: RED CITY #1 (Image Comics) by Daniel Corley and Mark Dos Santos

1st Issue Fetish: BLACK WIDOW #1 by Nathan Edmondson & Phil Noto

This is one of the All-New Marvel NOW! titles I’d be most interested in giving a read (along with a new series featuring a certain green-skinned powerhouse bombshell). I enjoy Nathan Edmondson’s writing on his creator-owned book The Activity (with artist Mitch Gerards). As for Phil Noto, he can be a little hit n’ miss if only due to the sameness in the likeness of his characters (particularly the ladies). But this should be a fun ride of a book full of (mis)adventure.  Black Widow #1 will be released next week on January 8, 2014 from Marvel Comics. Check out … Continue reading 1st Issue Fetish: BLACK WIDOW #1 by Nathan Edmondson & Phil Noto

1st Issue Fetish + Linkage: Robot 6 FURIOUS Interview with Bryan J.L. Glass & Victor Santos

Dark Horse Comics has been amping up things as one of the go-to independent publishers for creator-owned properties. I know it’s in no small part due to Scott Allie’s appointment as Editor-in-Chief (whom I’ve met through a friend who happens to be DHC’s Director of Marketing). Allie’s a sharp guy and a brilliant editor and DHC has really been benefitting from his leadership. This one looks to be pretty interesting. Furious #1 will be released January 29, 2014. Clicky the link to check out the interview with the creators.  LINKAGE: Comic Book Resources’ Robot 6 Blog Continue reading 1st Issue Fetish + Linkage: Robot 6 FURIOUS Interview with Bryan J.L.

Broken News Update: Bleeding Cool says DEADLY CLASS #1 is Top Reorder

I wasn’t kidding when I said in my earlier post that ya better make sure you have your local retailer preorder/hold you a copy of Rick Remender’s DEADLY CLASS #1. Although it will be a fast seller, it looks like retailers are on the ball with advance reorders. LINKAGE: Rich Johnston of Bleeding Cool reports (with chart evidence) Continue reading Broken News Update: Bleeding Cool says DEADLY CLASS #1 is Top Reorder

1st Issue Fetish: Rick Remender’s DEADLY CLASS #1

Announced at last year’s Image Expo in July, this one has been a long time coming. But this new creator-owned project from the iron-hot writer Rick Remender, with artist Wesley Craig and colorist Lee Loughridge, will finally hit comic shops and digital outlets on January 22, 2014 from Image Comics. Deadly Class follows in the wake of the quick sell-out of Black Science #1, Remender’s other new series at Image that debuted in November, which prompted additional printings of that much coveted first printing of issue one (which I’ve personally seen in a comic shop $6 sticker on the polybag). From the … Continue reading 1st Issue Fetish: Rick Remender’s DEADLY CLASS #1

1st Issue Fetish: The Private Eye – by Vaughan & Martin (Panel Syndicate)

The Private Eye #1 Writer: Brian K. Vaughan Artist: Marcos Martin Publisher: Panel Syndicate.com Last week I told some of my CBLF’s (comic book-loving friends) via Twitter:  “My brothers in comic book worship, I have found the latest scripture & it’s great. This digital tome of graphic literary goodness is worth the $2.99 I PayPal’ed on it.”  Sometimes hyperbole, even the metaphorical kind, can be fun. But I meant every word.
