JUSTIN’S FAVORITES OF 2012:

Favorite Super-hero Book of 2012: This may be a bit premature, but the Marvel NOW! relaunch of Captain America stands head and shoulders above any other new superhero book for me this year. It manages to be kitschy and modern all at once, a post-millennial nod to Jack Kirby’s near autonomous 1970s run that would surely send the King over the moon. I haven’t read a single issue of a comic book so many times this year; I think my current tally is closing in on a baker’s dozen. Rick Remender deserves a big ol’ hug. If he’d come to Heroes Con, he’d get one.

STAFF PICKS :: BULLETPROOF COFFIN TP VOL 2: DISINTERRED :: SEPTEMBER 12, 2012

September 11, 2012 By: Justin Crouse Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

JUSTIN’S PICK :: BULLETPROOF COFFIN TP VOL 02 DISINTERRED: If you missed this wonderfully bizarre comic in its regular issue format, you are depriving yourself of a rare chemistry. David Hine and Shaky Kane work as a seamless team, turning countless pop culture trends on their ears, with equal parts dread and nostalgia. Volume one was essentially an episode of Twin Peaks with superheroes; Disinterred ups the weird ante considerably. Check it out.
