STAFF PICKS :: 2012 FAVORITES :: HEATHER PEAGLER

HEATHER’S FAVORITES OF 2012:

Favorite Super-hero Book of 2012: Wolverine and the X-Men: I haven’t read much of the X-Men since Joss Whedon’s run on Astonishing, but I am so glad Seth insisted we pick up this title.  This has consistently been my favorite super-hero book this year since issue #1.  It’s funny, it survived cross-over madness, and it has more bamfs than you can shake a stick at! If you haven’t been reading this delightful tale by Jason Aaron, you need to add this to your holiday wish list immediately! (more…)

STAFF PICKS :: 2012 FAVORITES :: SETH PEAGLER

December 20, 2012 By: Seth Peagler Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

SETH’S FAVORITES OF 2012 :: It’s been an eclectic year for comics.  Amid all the relaunches and reboots, company-wide crossovers and such, there were still some truly entertaining books that caught my attention.  It’s like I always say, you might not like everything new, and might not like the directions of some books or companies, but if you take the time to look around, you’ll find plenty of quality comics to enjoy.

Favorite Super-hero Book of 2012Wolverine and the X-men/Hawkeye: I couldn’t narrow it down to one.  Wolverine and the X-men, in spite of having to weave in and out of the giant Avengers vs. X-men story, managed to be one of the most consistently joyous comics of the year for me.  Much of this is owed to writer Jason Aaron, who kept the tone of the book consistent, which may well have been a challenge this year.  Kudos also to artists Chris Bachalo and Nick Bradshaw for matching the energy and humor in Aaron’s scripts, and adding their own unique takes on these characters.

STAFF PICKS :: THOR: GOD OF THUNDER #1

November 09, 2012 By: Seth Peagler Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

SETH’S PICK :: THOR: GOD OF THUNDER #1: Of all the Marvel Now offerings, I’m putting my money on this one (and Hickman’s Avengers) as being the most promising.  Writer Jason Aaron produced consistently solid work on Wolverine, Wolverine: Weapon X, and most recently on Wolverine and the X-men, the latter of which maintained its entertainment value throughout the mammoth Avengers vs. X-men storyline.  Artist Esad Ribic won over a lot of fans with his work on Uncanny X-force, but he’d been making quality comics long before that.  The story focuses on a serial killer of gods, and will cover many different eras past, present and future of Thor and Asgard.  In addition to Thor, Jason Aaron fans should remember that the final volume of his excellent crime series Scalped (vol. 10 – Trail’s End) also hits shelves on Wednesday.

STAFF PICKS :: WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #16 :: SEPTEMBER 12, 2012

September 12, 2012 By: Heather Peagler Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

HEATHER’S PICK :: WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #16: The somewhat adorable tween Hellfire Club makes a reappearance this month with a business plan that’s booming thanks to the governments of the world and the Phoenix Five.  Fear of mutants got you down? No worries as the Hellfire Club has you covered with various Sentinels for all your mutant fighting needs.  Wonder how Wolverine will deal with these undisciplined brats and their nasty robots?  Sounds like someone needs detention!
