Axel-In-Charge: "Secret Wars" Jam Session Talking "A-Force," "Ultimate End" and More
This week, I share some links to cool comic things and ramble on for far too long about Doctor Who. So, you know, an average Sunday.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What emotion-that-is-not-really-an-emotion should become a power ring next, and what color would it be?
Brunch? Hah! The semi-new format begins here, as a full meal of links, musings, reviews, and unwitty witticisms awaits you beneath the cut on this Easter Sunday.
QUESTION(S) OF THE WEEK: With the new Twilight graphic novel selling heavily despite being blindingly awful, it’s got me thinking: Should comics adapt prose works? Which novels would make for good comic book adaptations?
I watched Count Tolstoy leave and thought how it is not he who knows the truth who is right, but he who is convinced of the truth of his lie. (Milorad Pavić, from Landscape Painted With Tea)
Open your refrigerator, and watch the internet fall out. Links of interest, beneath the cut!
My motto’s always been “when it’s right, it’s right.”
At least I got this out before the Oscars.
In an effort to try something slightly different with these annual retrospectives, I will now present to you not necessarily the best in comics– I’m not the scholar for that– but the five comics published in the year of our King Kirby 2009 that possessed the most raditude. These are the comics that got drunk and made out with my brain while leaping the gorge on a skateboard that was on fire– only the bitchin’est, most awesome comics need apply. Onwards!
Or Hanukkah Something-Kosher to our Jewish readers out there, like Stan Lee, who surely reads this blog every day on his Blackberry. Hi, Stan!
Yes, you’ve all been good little fanboys and girls, so here’s a quick Sunday-Brunch-esque Holiday Treat, in which I throw a stocking full of recent and interesting links at you.
QUESTION OF THE SEASON: Best Christmas-slash-holiday-season-themed comic you’ve read?
The last two weeks have felt like two years, and it looks like the comics internet is going through a dry spell. Let’s throw some pity lovin’ at it this week and hope it picks up its game in the future, shall we?
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What was the best last issue you ever read? Last, as in, final. As in, there were no more to follow. As in, the opposite of first.
Finally, the world’s wildest animated television show is back with all-new episodes. Are you ready for the review that’s coming!?
Or, see how Brad turned a “one comic in the pull box” week in to a bunch of crap to review, including more Spider-Man comics in one week than is healthy. Or, how’s he’s slowly becoming Burgas with less genre indie taste. Continue Reading »
That’s right Nevett, I’m upping the ante! By slinging together a bunch of semi coherent musings on my trip to the LCS before I pass out from exhaustion! Get bowel quakingly terrified! Continue Reading »
How hopelessly late am I this time? Not too much, I hope. (Place your bets on how many semi-colons I use in this post!) At least I review some stuff that I haven’t seen reviewed much around the internets. Well, aside from that one comic. You know the one.
Inside: The most awesome comic ever printed! The strangest Bat-villain of them all! The biggest letdown of the month! The latest Apparat novella from Internet Jesus himself! And an overlooked new launch from a young upstart publisher! (See anything you like? Buy it at HeavyInk, and/or pre-order the next one at DCBS!)
Hey look, I’m still here.
This week on Sunday Brunch: the all-out all-awesome all-art edition! Cool revamps, spiffy webcomics, and snazzy pop art content from all your favorite internet people!
Although, really, I’m not sure if there is a language that could adequately describe how awesome this is. Maybe whatever it is that Dusty Rhodes speaks could come close, if he threw in some Esperanto and Klingon. That could possibly express the magnitude of what’s going on there, maybe.
Comics Should Be Good accepts review copies. Anything sent to us will (for better or for worse) end up reviewed on the blog. See where to send the review copies.
