This week brings armed mice, the Sorcerer Supreme, another Civil War tie-in and a host of classic fairy tale characters to comic book stores so that they can be mutilated, dramatized, and humiliated for my entertainment and yours.
So what’s the Blog@ crew looking most forward to this week?
Kevin Melrose’s Pick of the Week
Mouse Guard #6. David Petersen’s charming, bloody and beautiful miniseries has been one of the unexpected hits of the past year. This week it concludes as the brave members of the Mouse Guard defend Lockhaven against invasion. I’m a litte sad to see the story end, but I look forward to the hardcover collection — yes, I’ll buy it, too — and the promised subsequent stories.
Melissa Krause’s Pick of the Week
Oh fine. I’ll go with Mystery in Space this week. When I can’t go to the comic store until next week. Thanks for rubbing it in
Tom Bondurants Pick of the Week
It’s Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes #26 for me — I’m really enjoying the Wanderers/Mon-El storyline, and we’re smack-dab in the middle of it now.
Graeme McMillan’s Pick of the Week
Showcase Presents The Brave And The Bold Team-Ups Vol. 1. Yes, the title’s long, but over 500 pages of silver age Batman team-ups from the pen of Bob Haney, DC’s most out-there writer of the time, for less than $20? Who could say no to that?!?
JK Parkin’s Pick of the Week
I just read Crossing Midnight #2 last night, so maybe proximity plays a part in it, but my pick is the third issue of the latest Vertigo series by Mike Carey and Jim Fern. Fans of Mike Carey’s work on Lucifer will no doubt enjoy the “feel” of this one, which tells the story of two twins going up against a cast of gods and monsters.
Lisa Fortuner’s Pick of the Week
Surprisingly, Ramayan 3392 AD looks better than anything else to me this week. I’m normally a mainstream reader, but I think I’ve fallen in love with the dreamy epic art inside.
