New Comic Book Day Megathread
« on: 08 March, 2012, 09:36:36 am »
So, as I was probing about in the other thread, every week at a couple of different forums I hang out on I post the new comic shipping list that Diamond has handed down for arriving that week, and then I post my pulls. This is pretty much just a way for me to gush about all the great comics I'm reading these days. And perhaps pick up on what everyone else is reading on a week to week bases, perhaps spurring a bit of discussion.

So since I now know that the other side of the pond gets the same funny books as I do on a regular basis, it seems worth sharing my pull passion her too.

So yeah. Stand by for Comics!

NEW COMICS SHIPPING THE WEEK OF 03-07-12

My Pulls
2000 AD #1766 (Technically got this a couple weeks ago. Diamond is notoriously bad at knowing exactly when 2000 AD issues actually are arriving in the US. I think its Quantum or something)
COMPLEAT TERMINAL CITY TP Preview
FAIREST #1 Preview (Latest Fables spin-off!)
FATALE #3
GIRL GENIUS OMNIBUS HC VOL 01 AGATHA AWAKENS (I've been waiting to get into this series for years. I love Deluxe HCs. So shiny)
KING CITY TP (The best comic maxi-series of 2009-2010 gets a snazzy TP. Brandon Graham ownzone)
THE MANHATTAN PROJECTS #1 Preview (New Johnathan Hickman sci-fi series starts here)

Great idea!

This week was a fantastic pull week for me. I tend to collect mostly trades, and read the singles digitally so that I'm not behind.

Compleat Terminal City by Michael Lark and Dean Motter

The Boys Vol. 10 by Garth Ennis and John McCrea

Hellboy: The Storm & The Fury by Mike Mignola and Duncan Fegredo

King City: The Complete Collection by Brandon Graham

Fatale #3 by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips

Manhattan Projects #1 by Jonathan Hickman and Nick Pitarra

Rachel Rising #6 by Terry Moore

Supurbia #1 by Grace Randolph and Russell Dauterman

So three great collections, and The Boys :-) The big surprise for me was Terminal City. Never read it before, and devoured it last night. Beautiful book. Motter might be the best monologuist in comics. Great work by Michael Lark.

Manhattan Projects was the big winner in terms of new stuff. Can't wait to see how this goes.

Supurbia - I liked this better when it was called Welcome to Tranquility. Sorry.

Girl Genius: I tried getting into this series digitally to see if I wanted to get the new deluxe hardcovers....Ummmm...can someone explain to me what I'm missing? I tried, really I did!

Nowt. There was nothing in my sub list this week. Very disappointing.

No surprises mines a DC fest, Action Comics, Animal Man, Batwing, Green Arrow (Yah Ann Nocenti's first issue, the comic I'm most looking forward to), Justice League International, OMAC and Swamp Thing.

Nice haul, alas I only visit my LCS every two weeks so I'll not get um for over a week yet.

I, Cosh

This week for me:

Batman: Flashpoint TP - One of my favourite superhero reads of 2011. Great take on the Batman mythos by the team that brought you 100 Bullets.

Northlanders Vol. 6 TP - So sad that this is going away, but it's still a hell of a great read.

Last Mortal HC - An extremely overlooked 2011 mini from Image comics. A small time thief discovers that he can't be killed. Well executed.

Saga #1

Powers #9

Secret History Of DB Cooper #1 - I know that it's Saga that's getting all the press, but I'm almost equally excited about this.

Wasteland #35

Saucer Country - The previews of this have done nothing for me. I will give this a shot based on how much I enjoyed Cornell's Captain Britain run, but I'm not holding out a lot of home.

Today may have been the best Wednesday of the year. So many great comics, so little time.

Saga #1

Wow...just wow. Now, I'm not overselling this....I won't say it's the best comic of the year, or anything so bold...yet. But in a market that is currently putting so much stock in "high concept" comics, it's really nice to see a premise that obviously will need more than a 6 issues to wrap up nicely. The "Romeo & Juliet Vs. Star Wars" generalizations that this has been getting are apt. There is so much to explore with these characters, and you can tell that Vaughan is giddy at the opportunity to do so. Fiona Staples might not have been the artist that would first come to mind for a massive space epic like this, but I really think that her dark, rough pencils suited this perfectly.

Rating: A-

Secret History Of DB Cooper #1

My personal favourite of today's haul. If Richard Ellson and Mike Mignola had an art baby, it's name would be Brian Churilla, and his near-surreal pencils perfect for this psychedelic action comic. The premise is thus: In 1971, A man going by the name of DB Cooper pulled off the greatest crime in American history...and got away with it. This is his "true" history as a psychic assassin for the CIA, and the open-ended nature of the premise allows Churilla to go absolutely ballistic when it comes to the art.

Rating: A+

Saucer Country #1

Rarely has such an interesting premise been let down so much by it's execution. There's nothing "wrong" with this comic per se, except that like most of Cornell's work the plot gets completely lost in the name of "writing". Rather than tell a solid, linear story, Cornell uses dreams and flashbacks to set up his plot, but not particularly well, and the story ends up being a lot more complicated than he probably meant it to be.

Rating: 

C-

Conan #2

Now we're talking! After a bit of a muddled first issue, Wood and Cloonan are firing on all-cylinders, with a rollicking pirate fight on the high seas. I really enjoyed this, and felt that the characterization of Conan here was perfect. This is the bad-ass adventure-seeking Conan that we all know and love, and Cloonan's art fit the tone of the fight scenes perfectly.

B+
