HEATHER’S PICK :: Giant Size Little Marvel A vs. X #1: Alright, Marvel, you’ve figured out another way to get me to read about this Battleworld place.  I adore Skottie Young’s covers so when I get a whole book filled with all this cuteness, I’m sold.  I can’t even decide who is the cutest! Maybe Beast because he looks like a little blue puppy? Although Magik is a sweet little butt kicker, too!
I’ll take this little piece of Battleworld and an Avengers versus X-Men street food battle! This is a great all ages take on the current Secret Wars event.  No prior knowledge needed!

Bonus Pick: Squirrel Girl #6: This book is at the top of my pile each week it is released.  I love this book! From the hilarious use of social media by its characters (@hulkysmashy, could it be any better?!?) to the tiny jokes at the bottom of the page (serious spit takes going on) to an amazingly relatable super hero (I want to hang out with Doreen), this book has won a hard fought battle to become my favorite comic.  That’s saying a lot for a character I had barely even heard of until recently.  Team Squirrel Girl, you are the best!

STAFF PICKS :: WAKE, KINSKI and yet another CLASSIC COMICS STRIP CORNUCOPIA :: NOVEMBER 5, 2014

November 04, 2014 By: Andy Mansell Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks, Uncategorized

staff_picks andy_staff_picksANDY’S PICKS :: At this past weekend’s Discussion Group–and we had a blast, join us for the next one!!-two books were strongly recommended by our Discussioneers (c): WAKE the ten issue horror mini series from Batwriter Scott Snyder and artist Sean Murphy. It is set at the Arctic Circle and it sounds horrifying. And KINSKI the six issue miniseries from Gabriel Hardiman about a man and his dog, but that is not what it is really about. Both books are collected in book form and are well worth your time, money and effort.
Kinski_01-1

SUPERMAN GOLDEN AGE SUNDAYS 1946-1949 HC| $49.95
WALLACE & GROMIT NEWSPAPER STRIPS HC VOL 02| $14.99
WALT KELLY POGO COMP DELL COMICS HC VOL 02| $60.00
BOB POWELL COMPLETE CAVE GIRL HC| $49.99
PEARLS BEFORE SWINE TP BREAKING STEPHAN| $14.99
MUTTS TREASURY LIVING THE DREAM SC| $19.99
GET FUZZY TP YOU CANT FIGHT CRAZY| $14.99

You can’t go wrong with any of these collections. Mutts, Get Fuzzy and Pearls Before Swine are three of the most consistent and entertaining contemporary strips. So is Wallace & Gromit and these collections are the only place in the colonies to find this gem. Powell was a good girl art master to rival even Matt Baker. You can’t go wrong with Walt Kelly’s swamp folk in any medium. But it is those full page, full color Wayne Boring Sunday strips that really melt my butter. Yours too if you are so inclined to give them a try!

Action Philosophers collects all the issues Fred Van Lente and Ryan Dunlavey  cartoon history of Philosophy from Socrates (the old dude in the bedsheet from Bill and Ted!) to Jacques Derrida (Dream and Death’s younger brother Deconstruction)!

But if you can only afford one classic reprint this week it has to be WALT DISNEY UNCLE SCROOGE HC VOL 02 SEVEN CITIES GOLD. It’s Carl Barks at his prime. Even sub-prime Barks is better than 95% of all other cartoonists. Prime Barks is not just essential, it’s required!!!  Enjoy!!!

STAFF PICKS :: PROPHET STRIKEFILE #1 :: SEPTEMBER 10, 2014

September 10, 2014 By: Justin Crouse Category: Uncategorized

staff_picksjustin_staff_picksJUSTIN’S PICK :: PROPHET STRIKEFILE #1: I love anything encyclopedic. I can while away days with a few Official Handbooks of the Marvel Universes, or Who’s Who?es, or what-have-you. The cumulative nature of serial fiction – and especially comics – gets so awe-inspiring when everything is condensed down to its most basic summary…something about it compels me. We’ll let the mystery be. Anyway, now Prophet gets the treatment, and with the wild talents of Brandon Graham and Simon Roy at the helm, this little pamphlet o’ factoids is sure to fascinate. And we can all use a scorecard, sometimes.
