Brian Wood Archives - Comics Should Be Good! @ Comic Book Resources

Review time! with Starve #1-5

starve1 (2)

I mentioned a few weeks ago that Brian Wood had sent me digital copies of both Rebels and his other new comic, Starve, but I didn’t have time to get to the second one. Well, I still don’t have a lot of time (I’m still having issues with my Internet connection, because I might as well live in 1996 with the speed I have), but I’m going to get to it anyway!

She Has No Head! – New Books To Read In 2015

I always like to do a post early in the year that looks forward to some of the books I’m most excited about on the horizon in 2015, helps me get pumped for the year and also try to make a mental note of all the projects I’m looking out for. I was ready with my list the first week of January but opted to wait to hear what news came out of Image Expo as they’ve had some truly exciting stuff in the last couple years, this year was no exception and added some great looking titles to my “must haves” list.

All that said, it was a bit hard to predict what I’m most excited about from Marvel and DC because their events (Secret Wars and Convergence, respectively) are even more potentially “line changing” and mysterious than usual. So keeping in mind that that accounts for a likely decreased number of books from both publishers on the list…let’s get going! I organized this by month and then for stuff that has nebulous release dates more a “going forward in 2015” category.

She Has No Head! – All I Ever Wanted

My birthday was last week and my boyfriend had been asking me what I wanted for weeks. I didn’t know how to tell him that Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel had already given me all I ever wanted.

I know that sounds dramatic, but truly I do not know how to explain to you guys what it feels like to finally (at far too old an age) hold in your hands a comic book that you have dreamed of since you were a kid. A comic book that you wanted to WILL into existence. And now, like magic (plus 20 years) I have it.

She Has No Head! – The Ladies of X

Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel’s X-Men #1 came out to much fanfare and awesome critical acclaim.  I reviewed it last week on CBR and Sue and I interviewed Wood on 3 Chicks last week as well.

But really, that’s not enough. Nope.

In my excitement for and about this title and what a long time coming it is – I think I have truly been waiting 20 years for this book – I thought it’d be a good time to talk about the ladies being featured in the title. The X-Men on Wood’s team are some of my favorite characters in all of comics, so I’m pretty excited to see them all here together, kicking ass and taking names.
