Comic Book Fetish Faves of 2016

There’s nothing like being fashionably late, is there? Last year was probably my biggest in a very long time, if not ever. Probably at least 50 different titles sampled, with about 30 or so of them regularly read as series and collected. So here I present, without any further ridiculous delay, my personal Comics List…

Comic Book Fetish Fave of the Week #4

January 2017 | New Comics Week 4 — Saga #42 (Image Comics) I cannot honestly remember the last time a comic book made me tearful. The all-black back pages, easily six of them, really helped deliver the gut punch and the kick to the heart. I literally gasped “Really, Brian and Fiona!?!?” BKV may be the best in…

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…

Comic Book Fetish Favorites – September 2014

In this edition of my monthly reflect on comic reads, I find myself rating two of my favorite writers high in one instance and low in another on their respective pair of titles on the list. Also, when a month fails to deliver new Sex Criminals and Rat Queens issues, the overall rating for the…

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…

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,…

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,…

Promo: VELVET by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting

Edit I‘ve just finished reading the first arc of VELVET by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting. It’s a really classy book…a spy caper/paranoid thriller book with style and grace. If you enjoyed what these two did on Captain America and the Winter Soldier books in the past, you’ll likely dig this too. I think it’s…

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….

2013 Fetish Favorites: Cover Artists Fetish Five

Since I’m late doing my “best of list” from 2013, you all should know by now why the following names and titles show up here, so I won’t belabor with my own personal gushing this time. This is more “at-a-glance” and for comparison and archival purposes. There are more cover artists than interior artists, so…

2013 Fetish Favorites: THE PRIVATE EYE — Best Digital Comic Series

“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.” – Brandon Rucker, March 2013 That bit of hyperbole is what I tweeted to my Comics Illuminati brothers after I had read Brian K. Vaughan…
