Here’s the links to my most recent reviews I’ve done. Representing some serious variety in all my reviews I’ve been doing as of late. From expressing my love for Atomic Robo, checking out a nice old school inspired superhero comic, cool covert ops story, and a X-Men series I haven’t checked out in awhile. The Mudman review is a special one for me as that one managed to pop on the Robot 6 Blog in the Chain Reactions story which I was insanely happy about. My poor twitter followers got to deal with a me bouncing off the walls that day. I’ll post the link below just to let you all check out my fun mention.
Really not too much else to report, would anyone like a detailed post on Our Love is Real? I feel it deserves that one considering that the Comic Anvil is being posted soon in which @EvilPilgrim and I go in further detail into the wonderful world of Our Love is Real. Till next blog!
I’ve decided to make this my new weekly idea to let you all what I’m up to and also just to tell you all what I’m planning to get for the week!
Okay first off, my first major online project will be happening soon, hopefully over the weekend. I’ll keep you posted when it’s ready for prime time. Some of my followers gave me some good feedback on what subjects could be interesting for this column. I’m extremely excited about it you have no idea.
Also on the Anvil end we’re going to be doing two podcasts over the weekend! Yes Anvilites count em, two podcasts! One is going to be…interesting and the other is one I cannot wait! The first creator interview on the Anvil! Yes guys this is a cool one, I am so happy about both episodes!
Now for the pull list:
This is a very light week for me on this one,
I’m grabbing Avenging Spider-Man #1 mainly because of the fact that I like Joe Madureira’s artwork and honestly that’s the big appeal for me. Zeb Wells is a solid writer and I’ve seen preview pages and that does make me interested in seeing how this will come together. I’m more than likely going to do a review on this one. Going to be interesting either way to see how this one fares for me. Yes I’m still bitter that Joe Mad hasn’t finished Battle Chasers and never will. That’s okay though I’ve accepted that one.
Batwoman #3 is a must buy for anyone but I just love this series. Written by J.H Williams and W. Haden Blackman and drawn by J.H Williams, this is one of the most beautifully drawn books in the new 52. Since Batwoman: Elegy is a favorite of mine I had to say this book had high expectations and it met them swimmingly so this is one of my long haul books of the new 52.
Demon Knights #3 continues a series that while I couldn’t get into Paul Cornell’s Stormwatch this one just fit like a glove. The series is fun, pure unadulterated fun. Massive action, great story, and the art by Diogenes Neves is amazing. On all levels this book is highly recommended and cannot be missed.
Grifter #3 is on my list and initially Grifter was a series I had no expectations for and then it turned into a book I can’t miss. This takes the concepts of Daemonites and twists that entirely on it’s head. Such a cool title and if you’re not already grabbing it I’d highly recommend that one.
Pigs #3 is a nice series, you should give this one a look. It’s a unique take on Cold War madness and I love every minute of it.
Resurrection Man #3 or the series I had extremely high hopes for as well and didn’t let me down at all. You all should definitely be checking this one out as well. If you read the original series then you’re well on your way to needing it in your life. If you haven’t read the original series you don’t have to and you can read knowing that it’s just a cool series.
The maybe book of the week is Marvel’s Point One. I am interested in seeing how they plan to set up all their big events for the year in some strange way, and in another way that price tag is the price tag from hell. So we’ll see. I’ll take a flip through and decide how I feel about that one at the store tomorrow.
That’s really about it for now people! Till the next post!
Unless you haven’t heard by now I’m a part of the team that does The Comic Anvil podcast every week to two weeks depending on scheduling. Probably one of my favorite new internet activities is doing The Comic Anvil for nerdsontherocks.com working with Evil Pilgrim (Eric), batmanboy11 (Dylan), and spideyellis (Anthony). Recently I got the honor of hosting an episode of The Anvil with my friend ilikecomicstoo (Marlene) as a guest on the show. It was a lot of fun though I was extremely nervous. Seriously listen to the episode I and uh and um like nothing you’ve ever seen. Though I say I recover fairly nicely from what I’ve heard. I have a hard time listening to my own voice. I did have a lot of fun on this episode.
This was sort of the episode I genuinely had a blast doing and then the week after that I got to do an episode with @Gary_M_Miller and @Andrenn with @EvilPilgrim and it was all on the Incredible Hulk #1. That was actually a lot of fun too. Two episode in which I just had more fun than I could ever imagine. I feel like the show is starting to find a flow that’s clicking with people. We’ve had trouble getting the full cast in the past couple weeks but looks like we’ll be at full capacity soon. Which I am looking forward to immensely.
Here’s links to both episodes
also you can subscribe to us on iTunes and listen on your Ipod or even use whatever player of your choice to listen to our show. I’m immensely proud of this podcast.
