Yeah, I'm lazy. And since it's late I'm just going to post about books rather than cover movies or video games.
- Journey, The Adventures of Wolverine MacAlistaire, vol. 1 by William Messner-Loebs. One of the great comics of the 80's is back finally back in print. Set in 1810 or thenabouts, this is the story of a frontiersman in the Northwest Territories. Adventure, frontier life, & the occasional fantastic element. Great stuff, with humor & wit. I especially like Jemmy Acorn.
- Skyscrapers of the Midwest by Joshua Cotter. This is well done, but I'm just not the audience for this comic, which has a young person's cynicism that's best summed up as "Life sucks. Ha ha, just kidding. No, seriously, it sucks." (Checked out of the library.)
- John Constantine, Hellblazer: The Fear Machine by Jaime Delano, et al. DC/Vertigo is finally collecting more of Delano's run on this title. It's not quite as good as I remember it being, but I think part of that is due to some atrocious coloring. Seriously, the color art is often just plain ugly.
- Dave Stewart's Walk In by Jeff Parker & Ashish Padlekar. I don't know how much Stewart (of the Eurythmics) actually contributed to this, but I've enjoyed Parker's other comics, and this didn't disappoint. Not great, but entertaining enough.
- Marvel Adventures Iron Man, vol. 3: Hero by Design by Fred Van Lente, Graham Nolan, & Scott Koblish. I say this a lot about the Marvel Adventures books, but these are seriously some fun comics. These are the kinds of superhero comics that I remember reading when I was a kid, the kind that got me hooked on comics. Optimistic, entertaining, fun.
- Fantastic Four Visionaries: Walter Simonson, vol. 2. I shouldn't begrudge Marvel for trying to make money, but this collection only contains 5 issues, and one of them is a fill-in that only contains a couple of pages by the guy whose name is on the cover, the guy whose reputation is the whole reason for this particular series of reprints.
- The Sandman Presents The Dead Boy Detectives in The Secret of Immortality by Ed Brubaker & Bryan Talbot. That's quite a mouthful of a title.
- The Foundation by John Rozum & Chee. Pretty good thriller. I've enjoyed Rozum's work in the past, and am glad to see him working in comics again.
- Showcase Presents Batman & the Outsiders, vol. 1 by Mike W. Barr & Jim Aparo. Not great, by any means, but entertaining enough. I love the "Showcase Presents" and "Essentials" series from DC & Marvel, respectively. Cheap comics reprints are always welcome.
