A Comic Show 9.26.18: Holy Massacre Heroes In Crisis!

By | A Comic Show | No Comments

Hey Fandom! It’s a great day to be a Booster Gold fan as he’s featured prominently in Heroes In Crisis #1! You have my condolences if one of your favorites was killed, by Tom King is definitely writing unafraid like he told me he would back at SDCC. Also, locals to A Comic Shop will get the special treat of meeting Clay Mann in person here today for the release! Here’s the event link: https://www.facebook.com/events/66952…

Doomsday Clock #7 is the JSA and Dr. Manhattan issues I’ve been waiting for since the beginning. Justice League Odyssey is sci-fi goodness by Williamson and Sejic. Over at Marvel you can overdose on Spider-Men with Spider-Geddon #0 and be horrified by Punisher in World War Frank part 2. Stranger Thing #1 features what Will was actually doing in the Upside Down during season one. Chelsea Cain may be dead to Marvel, but she’s glittering over at Image with her Man-Eaters. And Saga volume 9 is out today!

A Comic Show 9.12.18: A Fantastic Week on the Wrong Earth!

By | A Comic Show, Comics | No Comments

Hey Fandom! It’s new comic day and my birthday, so I’m loving life right now. For Marvel I enjoyed Fantastic Four 2, Amazing Spider-man 5, Champions 24, and Infinity Wars 3. Over at DC I reviewed Superman 3, Supergirl 23, Catwoman 3, and Hawkman 4.

There were several creator owned books that caught my attention like Eliis’ Cemetery Beach, Moth & Whisper, Wrong Earth, and Oblivion Song. Hope you find something you dig this week!

A Comic Show 8.29.18: DC vs Loony Tunes vs Rick & Morty vs D&D!

By | A Comic Show, Comics | No Comments

Hey fandom! I liked all four DC Loony Tunes and give my theory of who dies in Heroes In Crisis #1 (no spoilers, just supported speculation).

Rick and Morty vs Dungeons & Dragons #1 was a love letter to D&D fans. Power Rangers Shattered Grid #1 finale has a holofoil variant, that’s all I’m saying about it.

I also like Costa on Venom First Host #1, and every Cates fan needs to read the Wed of Ve’Nam one shot!

A Comic Show 8.15.18: Crowded Extermination

By | A Comic Show, Comics | No Comments

Hey Fandom, I’m back and really enjoy some Marvel books this week. Their “Fresh Start” is kicking in for me, especially the house cleaning they’re doing with the X-Men in Extermination. Infinity Wars #2 is continues it’s front loaded action. Star Wars Beckett is another movie prelude/tie-in/one shot that delivered. It was great seeing Beckett and his ill fated crew pull actually something off (sort of) before meeting Solo. Over at DC, Sink Atlantis is raising the bar for both Suicide Squad and Aquaman.

And my favorite book of the week is easily Image’s Crowded #1 by Sebela, crowded funded assassinations and the dark humor that ensues. If you try one new book this week, make it Crowded.

 

A Comic Show 7.25.18: To Infinity Wars & Beach Blankets!

By | A Comic Show, Comics | No Comments

Hey Fandom, I’m back from SDCC and ready to talk new comics now with my pal Oral! Mr. & Mrs. X #1 is the married hero book we all wanted, right? Infinity Wars Prime #1 has an epic happening we didn’t spoil here. And Amazing Spider-man #2 has us all in for the Spencer/Ottley run. At DC we ticked closer on the Doomsday Clock, welcomed Bendis to Action Comics #1001, got Dark with the Justice League, and said F Batman with Teen Titans 20 and Lobo’s daughter. We ended on a downer commiserating about Saga’s year long intermission that starts now after the emotionally draining issue 54.

A Comic Show July 4th: Captain America’s Bday & Batman’s Wedding!

By | A Comic Show, Comics | No Comments

Hey Fandom! This week was a fun one, the craziest romp being Donny Cates’ Cosmic Ghost Rider #1 (his Death of The Inhumans killed as well). I also enjoyed Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Captain America #1. And Rosenberg’s Havok and the Outsiders, I mean Astonishing X-Men 13, is my new favorite X-Book. I love flawed heroes like Alex Summer and flashy ones like Dazzler!

DC had the heavy hitters of Batman #50, Catwoman #1, and Justice League #3. And I show some of Nick Derington’s exclusive covers: http://ultimatecomics.com/batman-50-e…

There are no spoilers for Batman #50 until the 9:38 mark of the video where I say several times to stop watching if you don’t want spoilers. Then I let everyone know why I think this issue has more payoff for an ongoing series than anything else on the stands!
