COMIC BOOK TALK!
I see people saying what they bought, and comic book movies and digital comics and a lot of "inside baseball" talk. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy it, but I miss those olden days when we talked about comics! What did we read and what did we like! What's good? What was the first thing in your stash you read?
I've been doing a LOT of overnights as the group home I'm working for is having major staffing issues, so I'm reading the new stuff but also older stuff...so a few thoughts on what I read this week:
The Thor series keeps getting better every issue! Thor is a character that I have mixed feelings about, it can be a great series, or it can be just a big pile of cliches, but the God Killer story has been incredibly well done, and the art looks amazing. I'd pay for this to be a weekly, let alone being double shipped.
I'm re-reading the Nathaniel Dusk mini-series from the 1980's for a "Crime comics" episode I'm doing, and while the story itself is pretty by the numbers, I was struck at just how much emotion and character Don McGregor put into these stories. Add to that Gene Colon's art, shot from his pencils (the first comic series to do that that I am aware of) and it's MUCH better than I remember.
