STAFF PICKS :: FATHER GAETANO’S PUPPET CATECHISM ILLUSTRATED NOVELLA :: OCTOBER 24, 2012

October 19, 2012 By: Seth Peagler Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

SETH’S PICK :: Father Gaetano’s Puppet Catechism Illustrated Novella: This is the latest collaboration between Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and writer Christopher Golden, following Joe Golem and the Drowning City and Baltimore, which started as a novel before turning into several comic series.  The joy of these books lies in their simplicity.  Mignola and Golden don’t presume to try to reinvent any kind of literary wheels, they just tell straightforward horror stories.  This one is set in World War II era Sicily and follows the troubled lives of orphans.  If the dregs of war weren’t enough, the orphans have to deal with a haunted puppet theater.  Like I said, there’s nothing especially unique about the premise, but thanks to the creators its bound to be an entertaining read.  And for those of you who don’t like books without pictures, don’t forget that this one is aided by Mignola’s illustrations throughout.

WHERE DO I START? :: B.P.R.D.

October 02, 2012 By: Heather Peagler Category: DISCUSS, Where Do I Start?

It’s no secret to readers of this blog that my husband/Heroes blogger Seth loves all things Hellboy, but he has been completely unable to get me to read anything outside of Hellboy Jr. and the Beasts of Burden crossover one-shot.  There’s no real reason for my stance on this.  I liked the Hellboy movies, but that’s more about my love for Ron Perlman in beastly make-up than any particular attachment to the Hellboy storyline.  (While we’re on Mr. Perlman, can we all have the warm fuzzies again about the Make-A-Wish kid and Hellboy story from this summer?) Anyhoo, back to comics…Seth has full shelves in our house dedicated to Hellboy and B.P.R.D., but they had been gathering dust where I was concerned until recently.

At this year’s HeroesCon, I stumbled into a conversation between B.P.R.D. artists Jason Latour and James Harren in which I mentioned that I had not read B.P.R.D. and I wasn’t sure it was for me.  Not daunted at all by my hesitation, Jason immediately suggested that I start with Plague of Frogs and assured me that I would like it.  August rolled around without me picking up any of the trades on our shelves until I had a week without many new comics in my reserve bag and decided to pull volume 3 and it give it a go.  Cut to about a week and half later and I am about to start volume 13.
