My reviews of some of this weeks haul:

3 Story: Secret Files Of The Giant Man by Matt Kindt (Dark Horse)

3 Story was a graphic novel by Matt Kindt from a few years ago that I really liked. It didn't have the plotting complexities that some of his other work like Super Spy or Revolver had, but in terms of emotional resonance it had plenty. Secret Files is a collection of random apocryphal shorts that fit in nicely with the 3 Story mythos, without distracting from the main story. They were originally part of Dark Horse's Myspace project. Not sure this will mean much to those who haven't read the original, but for those of who have it provides a nice epilogue.

The best part however, is that there's a free preview that comes with this issue promoting Kindt's new series: Mind MGMT. Kindt gives us far more with a 5 page preview than most creators give us with 3 issues, and as such we feel as if we really get a sense of the new series is all about: 2 years ago a flight is forced to emergency land when every single passenger and crew member on board loses their memory. This was a great preview. Good character building, but also sets up the premise well. Looking forward to this.


Manhattan Projects #2 by Jonathan Hickman and Nick Pitarra (Image)

How do you follow up an amazing first issue? Do an amazing second issue. And that's what Hickman has done here. He took the "HOLY CRAP HOW ARE THEY GOING TO FOLLOW THAT UP" that he left with us on the last page MP #1, and....well, he followed it up.  And well, I might add. This is the story of an alternate past that isn't so alternate if you're a conspiracy theorist. To those folks, the inmates have been running the asylum for a long time now, and that's what Projects is about. Evil people, having way too much power over evil things. If you believe that science is an enemy to be feared...you definitely don't want to read this. 

Resident Alien #0 by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse (Dark Horse)

This collects the first 3 Resident Alien stories originally published in DHP, and gives us a great framework to the upcoming ongoing. Our hero here is an alien who has been trapped on our planet for decades. He just wants to go home, but somehow gets roped into becoming a family doctor in a small American town, solving a small town murder ysteries. The premise is sound, and the execution strong. It's not going to blow anyone away, but I really enjoyed how character focused this was. 

Ragemoore #2 - by Jan Strnad and Richard Corben (Dark Horse)

Second issue of a new horror epic by the Lee/Kirby of horror comics. The gothic sensibilites that oozed through issue #1 are on full display here, with us learning a bit more about the worst haunted house in the world. I didn't find issue two to be quite as compelling as issue one, as the whole thing just felt like a bit of a Edgar Allen Poe rip-off. Still, Richard Corben is a frickin' genius with shadow.

Prophet #25 by Brandon Graham & Farel Dalrymple (Image)

2012 is turning out to be an awesome year for creator owned and independent comics, but it's also turning out to be a great year for science fiction comics. Between Saga, Manhattan Projects, Casanova, and of course Prophet, there's a dearth of smart sci-fi out there. Prophet is as much of a quest/adventure book as it is a pure sci-fi comic, but it defintely wouldn't be out of place in Heavy Metal or 2000AD. The plan on this book is to constantly be changing artists, with each artist doing 1-3 issues each. Our star here is Farel Dalrymple, one of my favourite indie cartoonists. The style here is very different than the last few issues, but still working well from a tonal perspective with what we've seen before.

Secret History Of DB Cooper #2 by Brian Churilla (Oni Press)

What's the premise you ask? D.B. Cooper is a psychic assassin working for the CIA. He enters something called "The Glut"...kind of information superhighway for psychics. It allows him to go from one mind to another, killing whomever needs killing. If that's not a winner of a premise, I don't know what is. Plus, Brian Churilla is in Powell/Mignola/Davis/Corben territory when it comes to drawing monsters.

Issue one of this just blew me away. One of my favourite reads of the year thus far, as it combined so much of what I love about comics. Issue 2? Well....I didn't love issue two quite so much. Churilla is obviously an artist first, writer second. And it's because he's such an amazing artist that he can afford to be just an ok writer. But there's a clumsiness in his dialogue here that I found distracting, though not enough to stop me from enjoying the whole book.

Reset #1 by Peter Bagge (Dark Horse)

I've been reading quite a bit of Bagge's work lately, and thought I'd try his newest mini right at the beginning. He's got a 60's counterculture cartoony style that won't be for everyone, but it's an interesting backdrop for the sci-fi story he's telling. Reset is the story of Guy Krause, a has-been actor who gets drafted for an experimental mental procedure that allows one to "redo" painful moments of your life. Although Krause is hardly likable (although positively warm and cuddly compared to most Bagge lead characters), he's still sympathetic. That, combined with the solid premise, was enough to make sure I'll check out issue 2.

Rachel Rising #7 by Terry Moore (Abstract)

I've been losing confidence in this horror book, but issue 7 got me back. Rachel Rising is the story of a woman who was brutally murdered, but has come back to life. Her search for her killers, and for the reason why she's still alive, is what the book is about. Fantastic emotional storytelling by Terry Moore, who draws some of the most beautiful women in comics. I found it interesting to see a guy buy this today along with issues of Transformers and Walking Dead. I told him how good it was, and he said that he didn't care, he was buying it because there was a preview in the Walking Dead and so he expected it to go up in value. Oh, and he had 10 copies of the latest WD issue. Sigh....
 
The Sixth Gun #21 - by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt

Holy crap was that a lot of comic. No words, no dialogue, just 30 pages of pure adventure and action. Wow. Anyone that''s looking to learn how to frame action sequences for comics needs to study this issue religiously.

Dark Horse Presents #11

A slightly more mixed bag as usual. Some highlights included Francesco Francavilla's Black Beetle, the Evan Dorkin Milk & Cheese explosion in the middle of the book, and John Arcudi's The Creep. The Creep in particular really grabbed me. Arcudi is probably the best writer in comics that no one seems to know about. Great noir story. I enjoyed the Black Beetle as well, though I'm not sure why we needed it when we have MIke Mignola's Lobster Johnson.

Just finished the books I picked up this weekend. The Shadow was great and discussed in Garth Ennis' thread. My DC haul was all enjoyable, nah good, but nowt outstanding, though I was pleased with the way Night of the Owls is shaping up and so far it looks to be structured well so individual titles will still stand alone. Wonder Woman also had some of the best work on Diana's character thus far. The titles, Frankenstein, Resurrection Man, Batman, Nightwing and Batgirl.

Rocketeer Adventures was really good and had some superb art from Colin Wilson from these pastures (and John Paul Leon as it goes).

Oh and I picked up Showcase Presents: The Losers.

Still this weekend has been marked by some second-hand bookshop and charity shop purchases that put my last Comic -mart to shame. Picked up Hicksville from an Oxfam near where my daughter goes to a morning play thing. Went to a second hand shop to pick up a book and found a replacement for my missing Spirit Jam, a copy of Grendel Devil's Quest. The prize among them all however was the reason I went to the book shop in the first place a copy of 'Flaming Carrot Comics: The wild shall wild remain' I've been looking for a copy at a decent price for about 3 years now.

WAYHEY...

...okay so that all went off topic I appreciate that but felt like sharing.

Read Prophet this afternoon.  Interesting change of direction in plot, looking forward to seeing how it all comes together - the change in art wasnt that noticeable to me.  I did love the mini story at the end.  Felt like a vintage 2000ad short story.

Talked to Brandon about this yesterday at Vancouver Fan Expo. He said that the goal was that every change of artist would coincide with a change of character focus. So each artist would have their own "main" character to focus on. He said he hates when comics he loves change artists, so he wanted it make sense from a storytelling perspective.

Not a huge week, but still some stuff that I find interesting.

Sixth Gun Vol. 3 TP - The most recent issue might have been the very best silent action comic I have ever read in my life. This one just keeps impressing me.

Goon #39

Spaceman #6

Jerusalem: Chronicles Of The Holy City - The 4th of Guy Deslisle's travelogue graphic novels. Hope this is as good as the others.

Chew Vol. 5 TP

PTERODACTYL HUNTERS IN THE GILDED CITY - Not sure if I'll get this...but I've heard so many good things that I'm tempted.

Resident Alien #0 by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse (Dark Horse)

This collects the first 3 Resident Alien stories originally published in DHP, and gives us a great framework to the upcoming ongoing. Our hero here is an alien who has been trapped on our planet for decades. He just wants to go home, but somehow gets roped into becoming a family doctor in a small American town, solving a small town murder ysteries. The premise is sound, and the execution strong. It's not going to blow anyone away, but I really enjoyed how character focused this was. 


I've only just stumbled across a review of this and seeing the creative team I'm very excited to pick it up (teach me to scan read this thread!). Kinda finalises something I seriously been thinking about, the way I look for new comics. I'm a big DC fan but the number of DC books I pick up means that I rarely pick up other stuff, certainly not as much as I should. To therefore miss a book like this (well fingers crossed I'll still get it easy enough) by two such great creators is just silly.

So I'm going to try to embark on a new project. Every month I'm going to pick up a new comic, preferably a first issue (just nicer to get on board from the start), preferably a creator owned, preferably ongoing. We'll see how that goes and what interests me. I'll stick with the title for 3 issues (unless it's so rubbish) to give it time to settle in. For everyone I think is a banker I'll drop a DC title (well kinda)

The really tricky part will be cutting back on my DC titles, as I enjoy most the books I read, currently I read 19 titles (or will when the second wave books start). I hope in 12-18 months time this will be halved and I figure for ever 2 DC titles I drop I should be able to get 3 other titles due to regularity. I'm hoping by doing this I'll not just be getting books I enjoy but only getting books I bloomin' love.

Lets see how this goes hey...

For me tomorrow:

Popeye #1
New Deadwardians #2
and hopefully Manhatan Projects #2 as got shorted last week.

I've also ordered Resident Alien # 0 on the strength of the write up on the FPI blog.

Good idea. It took me a while to wean myself from my superhero addiction. I realized once I started to read more and more creator owned comics, that it wasn't really comics I had been reading, it was franchises. And the more creator owned comics I read, the more I realized that I didn't really enjoy as much of what DC or Marvel was doing as I thought. I've complained about the lack of quality in the new 52, but quite frankly I'm enjoying as many DC books as I was before the reboot. Nothing has really changed from what they were doing 2 years ago. I don't mean to make this as a dig against DC, it's just that I get way more pleasure of out of new, creator owned stuff. And quite frankly, I think the strength of creator owned stuff out there right now is stronger than it's been in years.

I liked Resident Alien quite a bit. I know they said that it was going to be an ongoing, but on the cover they list it as a 4 issue mini. Probably waiting to see how it does. Books like this, and the Sixth Gun, and Manhattan Projects, and Saga, and Prophet, and DB Cooper, and Daredevil, are why I love comics  :P

Oh yeah, Popeye! I'm digging Langridge's Snarked quite a bit. That guy knows how to pack a lot of story into a page.

Not a lot came out this week, but I thought I would comment quickly on The Goon #39 by Eric Powell

Comics that make fun of other comics aren't a new concept. They have been going strong for almost as long as we've had comics themselves.

But it's been a while since we've gotten a really good one, and I'm not sure there's been one that lampoons the state of today's comic book industry quite as effectively. From "Plots Based On Primary Colors Rule", to the Goon being a gay Republican Puerto Rican Transvestite Socialist For Jesus From Space, to Secrets of The Comic-Book Pros revealed..this book is 25 pages of pure fun, and more than worth your time and money.

Running late because of the Forum downtime, but we're back...

NEW COMICS SHIPPING THE WEEK OF 05-02-12

My Pulls
PIGS #7 (Preview) - Truth time. I'm dropping this with issue 8. The first issue opened strong, but I've rapidly lost interest. I've got to many comics on my plate to keep reading one that isn't keeping me intrigued.
SKELETON KEY COLOR SPECIAL (ONE SHOT) (Preview) - Collects the three Skeleton Key stories that ran in Dark Horse Presents. I was pleasantly surprised with how charming these comics were, and was sad to see it leave the pages of DHP. Hopefully it comes back at some point.
SUPREME #64 (Preview) - Very very curious where Erik Larsen is taking this book now that he's writer. Last issue certainly ended on a massive cliffhanger.
TEEN TITANS ANNUAL #1 (Preview) - Ordered this because I'm liking Legion Lost quite a bit, and might as well get the main meat of this 'The Culling' crossover. I'm not picking up the corresponding Teen Titan issue though. Hoping that DC doesn't treat it as required reading. Because that would suck on their part.

Another lite week. One of these weeks is going to catch up with me

Bart Simpsons Pal Milhouse is the only thing for me this week.  The Ralph Wiggum one a couple of months back was hilarious - Milhouse is not a favourite character of mine so nto expecting this one to be as funny...

Wahoo, we're back!

For me this week:

Animal Man Vol. 1 TP - One of the few DC titles that I'm enjoying. Very strong horror book.

Bulletproof Coffin Disinterred #4

Dogs of Mars TP

Daredevil #12

Skeleton Key Special - I love Andi Watson. Getting new SK stories has been one of the highlights of DHP for sure.

Snarked Vol. 1 - Langridge is one of the strongest storytellers in comics right now. He's building an mini-epic, all-ages adventure here, and it's a fun ride thus far.
