Every once in a while there is a comic or graphic novel that comes along and is one of those that you can call seminal work and Barry Windsor-Smith’s Monsters from Fantagraphics Books.
Another big week for new comic books with the continued wave of Future State comics from DC Comics continues. While that has dominated the last few weeks there were two new Marvel series that start and a nice showing of independent books that round out the week.
I’m back! So the good news is that I’m covering this weeks new comic books, the bad news is that I still haven’t caught up with the ones from a few weeks back that I’m still working on so please be patient with me on that one.
Yes I know that I’m behind and had started to write the previous two weeks reviews but, was so far behind and this was a light week that I decided to do this week first and hopefully in a few days get the others done.
Wonder Woman #759 DC Comics Writer Mariko Tamaki, Artist Mikel Janin, Colorist Jordie Bellaire, Letterer Pat Brosseau It’s pretty rare that I get an early copy of a comic to review but I was lucky enough to get an advance copy of Wonder Woman #759 with the new creative team of Tamaki and Janin and was excited to see what they would bring to the book because it’s sadly been staggering along from the Greg Rucka run in the beginning (IMHO).
Welcome back to our third week in a row that is a new current record for reviews. Just wanted to give a shout out to my local comic book store where I get my comics at Pulp Fiction Comics Long Beach is a great local shop and they do mail order also.
So two weeks in a row is a new record at this point. The holiday this week kind of threw off the schedule and a rough week at work delayed getting the reviews up on Friday but the good news with that is that I was able to get some of the backlog of comics in this weeks reviews so we are nearly caught up (well as nearly as I can get and still get some sleep and Diamond Comics still not getting all of the comics to the shop) So it was a light week for new comics but there are some recent ones that you might still want to check out.
