Picks of the Week – March 6, 2013

It’s been a busy week across the country.  Wild winter weather has socked much of the U.S., and the Catholic Church gets ready to pick a new Pope.

At least there are some new comics to bide the time while we wait for the weather to clear.

Picks of the Week – January 9, 2013

It may be Wednesday, but I’m a bit tweaked thanks to a horder strike at my local comic shop.  I still have some picks, but I have unfortunately been deprived of Walking Dead #106 since two guys went in and bought 6 issues… each!

Book Review – Animal Man Volume 1: The Hunt

Animal Man, Vol. 1: The HuntAnimal Man, Vol. 1: The Hunt by Jeff Lemire

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Probably one of the best of the New 52 books, this new Animal Man series takes Buddy baker and his family into a new, much darker world. Baker’s origin is tweaked, still paying homage to his “alien gift” powers while bringing him into a new conflict with a terrifying new villain. Rising from his original obscurity, and from his odd Vertigo book, Animal Man now stands strong in the darker corner of DC’s new continuity, one that is also populated by the classic character Swamp Thing.
