Comic Book Fetish Favorites | October 2014

Running late. Already into the second week of November. At any rate, here’s the rundown and commentary of the 19 comics released in October that I read. There a few new number ones on here so let’s see how they stacked up against the usual suspects. 1. Sex Criminals #8 (Image) 5.0 – SexCrimz never seems to disappoint and it’s undeniably my highest rated series since I’ve started doing the Fetish Favorites here, scoring 5.0 issues more than any other series I read. And it’s never earned a rating lower than 4.0 (out of 5) from me in all its … Continue reading Comic Book Fetish Favorites | October 2014

Comic Book Fetish Favorites – August 2014

So I’ve expanded out to 18 books read this month, can 20 really be far behind? Overall I would say that critically August was right on par with July, with both being better than June. As always, given my 1st issue fetish, there are a few #ones here: Dead @ 17, The Fade Out, The Multiversity and SIP Kids. Also of note: Marvel hits twice in the Top 5. WTH? Let’s see how this all shakes out below. 1. Saga #22 (Image) 4.5 – Happy to say that after a three issue “slump” (as if still scoring 4 out of 5 from me … Continue reading Comic Book Fetish Favorites – August 2014

Comic Book Fetish Favorites – July 2014

Overall July was a better month than June in terms of what came out and the average quality (although no Sex Criminals is…criminal). For this list I’m going to expand to include the 15 books I read in July. A few notes: there were four all-new number ones in my reading pile this month: Black Market, Death Vigil, Low, Storm and Grayson, the latter of which reminded me that I don’t need a faux spy title while the excellent spy series Velvet is around. So, without further ado … 1. Velvet #6 (Image) 5.0 – some of the finest character + story work this century, Brubaker & Epting at their … Continue reading Comic Book Fetish Favorites – July 2014

Comic Book Fetish Favorites – June 2014

Rough month considering Rat Queens, Velvet, Lazarus, Southern Bastards and Veil did not ship as solicited. Naturally my read list is still Image-dominated, but I did manage to read an anomaly of a Marvel title. Just as May was led by the much anticipated returns of Rat Queens and Saga, June was led, of course, by the triumphant return of Sex Criminals as well as a certain promising debut. However, there was one debut this month that was rather sleepy. Read List for June 2014 Sex Criminals #6 (Image) 5.0 – Excellent return. The Wicked and the Divine #1 (Image) 4.5 – … Continue reading Comic Book Fetish Favorites – June 2014

2013 Fetish Favorites: Publishers Fetish Five

I’ll keep this brief. As listed on the sidebar, this list has not changed much throughout the year as far as which publisher appears on it, mainly because it is subjective to my personal tastes and what I’m reading. Without further ado, here is, in my humble/esteemed estimation, the best comics publishers of 2013. 1. Image (including imprints: Shadowline, Skybound & Top Cow) The Activity, Artifacts, Cyber Force, East of West, Fatale, Five Ghosts, Jupiter’s Children, Lazarus, Manhattan Projects, Nowhere Men, Rat Queens, Revival, Rocket Girl, Saga, Sex, Sex Criminals, Snapshot, Thief of Thieves and The Walking Dead.   2. … Continue reading 2013 Fetish Favorites: Publishers Fetish Five
