Ziggy Pig – Silly Seal Comics #1 Marvel Comic Writers Frank Tieri & John Cerilli, Artist Jason Chabot, Colorist Stefani Rennee, Letterer Joe Caramagna The last of the Marvel 80th Anniversary one shots celebrating themes from Marvel’s past is based on the 1946 comic of the same name.
Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt #2 Dynamite Entertainment Writer Kieron Gillen, Artist Casper Wijngaard, Colorist Mary Safro, Letterer Hassan Otsmane I was really caught off guard with the first issue and was quite impressed with Gillen’s story so I was excited to see where he was going to take the story after the solid first outing and not only did he build greatly on it but kept the momentum going and really built up the tension in the story.
High Level #1 Vertigo Comics Writer Rob Sheridan, Artist Barnaby Bagenda, Colorist Romulo Fajardo Jr., Letterer Nate Piekos Vertigo continues to try and rebuild the line and has really struggled with mix results so far and this new series does show some promise but I wasn’t totally sold on the story with this first issue.
Wonder Twins #1 DC Comics/Wonder Comics Writer Mark Russell, Artist Stephen Bryne, Letterer Dave Sharpe Fans of the Superfriends Saturday morning cartoon fondly remember the Wonder Twins but it was an odd choice for one of the new Wonder Comics line of all ages comics to say the least but with Russell at the helm you know its going to be a wild ride.
Gunhawks #1 Marvel Comics Writers David & Maria Lapham, Artist Luca Pizzari, Colorists Neeraj Menon & Rachelle Rosenberg, Letterer Travis Lanahm So far these Marvel 80th one shot specials have been a little hit and miss but who doesn’t have a bit of a soft spot for a good old western comic and David and Maria Lapham deliver a trip back to the classic west.
San Diego is mostly know for its great weather and great tourist destination and of course for the event of the year San Diego Comic Con.
So were going to try something a little different this week and not only review this weeks new comic books but do a little catch up on some series that continued this week with a review that covers multiple issues at once.
Naomi #1 DC/Wonder Comics Writers Brian Michael Bendis & David F. Walker, Artist Jamal Campbell, Letterer Josh Reed The second book in the new Wonder Comics line from DC really gets off to a great start in this first issue.
There is a lot going on in both personal and professional so I’m going to keep it very short this week so I’m sorry for not getting in as many comic book reviews as I would like to.
