Frantic as a cardiograph scratching out the lines, Day 109: The Unknown #2

Every day this year, I will be examining the first pages of random comics. This month I will be doing theme weeks (more or less), with each week devoted to a single writer. This quasi-week: Mark Waid. Today’s page is from The Unknown #2, which was published by Boom! Studios and is cover dated June 2009. Enjoy!

What I bought – 27 January 2010

“The more civilized we become, the more horrendous our entertainments,” Frex said. (Gregory Maguire, from Wicked)

This is kind of a misleading cover, as the dude isn't in it that much, but it's still pretty keen Batman should get some carbs in him! CHOMP! Check out that Williams cover! Another cool cover by Alan Davis! So much drama! I hate that trade dress so much! Warning: This scene actually takes place inside the comic! Yes, a little dude with a big cleaver shows up in this book I hope she at least didn't let Doom take some of her gum!

What I bought – 16 December 2009

Now hang our bloody colours by Damascus,
Reflexing hues of blood upon their heads,
While they walk quivering on their city walls,
Half-dead for fear before they feel my wrath.
Then let us freely banquet, and carous
Full bowls of wine unto the god of war,
That means to fill your helmets full of gold,
And make Damascus’ spoils as rich to you
As was to Jason Colchos’ golden fleece.
And now, Bajazeth, hast thou any stomach?

I just love that cover. Part five of five? Existence abides, bitches! Why yes, those are dogs with human heads! Manga-riffic! Who else can they kill??? The title as part of a declaration?  Gold! More claustrophobia than you can handle! Yeah, I'm not sure what's going on on that cover either. Frenchie: Kicking ass and kissing guys! Why so angry?And why are they standing under a freeway? Man, I love this series.  I don't know about this volume, because I haven't read it yet, but the first five are awesome. Enjoy the issues that exist, because it's not coming back! With fancy new coloring!

What I bought – 15 July 2009

This week: I’m still having fun with the new format! I added something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but could never figure out. Other Greg does it all the time, though. Can you suss out what it is?

Plus: Nudity and Swearing! And the return of a long-absent publisher! Whoo-hoo! (Seriously, lots of swearing. You’ve been warned. And no, this is not a judgment about these comics at all. I just bought a lot of comics, and a lot featured swearing and nudity, so I thought it would be fun to compare and contrast.)
