Trade paperbacks, older editions, and miscellaneous for February AND March 2013

ChannelEvil (2)

Last month, I didn’t get a chance to finish all of these before I went to the convention in Seattle, and then I was busy when I got back. So this month, we get a double dose of trades and books I’ve read and such. That means this is really long, and I apologize for that!

Committed: Book Shopping with Clowes, Tezuka & Cooke

While I fully support all business charging (and paying tax themselves too), on the evening of September 14th I used the excuse that Amazon were going to start charging tax in California as an excuse to finally buy some books that had been hanging out on my shopping list for months. The books I bought were The Art of Daniel Clowes, two books by Osamu Tezuka (The Book of Human Insects and Message to Adolf, part 1), and Darwyn Cooke and Richard Stark’s Parker: The Score. I have to admit, when the big box of books arrived it felt like it was my birthday or something! While I regularly order things from Amazon, it is usually boring, practical stuff like water filter cartridges (which is almost certainly the least exciting thing to have delivered.) Moving house this year means that I haven’t been able to indulge in new book shopping for a quite a long time and this was just great. While there are dozens of books on my future shopping list, these are the ones I just had to have, the ones that I couldn’t wait to read any longer. Continue Reading »

Committed: Diving into the X-Statix Omnibus

Last night in my dreams, The Orphan from X-Statix was asked to do an interview. In the way of dreams, I don’t remember what it was about. But I do remember that he didn’t say what he was asked to say, and while Spike Freeman wasn’t happy about it, the team loved it. I woke up gagging to get back to reading my giant comic book.

Committed: Is Indie the New Mainstream?

Popular, successful comic book creators are often accused of being unsuccessful unless they make books for Marvel or DC, but these books are rarely the most lauded. Despite what some readers of the CBR Top 100 Comic Books of 2010 might think, mainstream acceptance of beautifully crafted comic books doesn’t translate to equivalent breakthroughs in the quality of superhero comic books.

Some Comments On Wolverine Saga (And Some Actual Wolverine Comics, Too)

You can’t really review a plot synopsis with photoshopped panels from old comics distributed to comic shops for free, in order to inform people about Wolverine’s convoluted history (and possibly scare them off of ever reading another coming again), because there’s a new movie coming out. Especially when you skimmed the damn thing.

That said, I’m going to do a post on it anyway. Continue Reading »
