In case the simultaneous releases of the first issues of The Incredibles and The Muppet Show–coups, both, for a publishing house the size of Boom! Studios to have landed–weren’t enough to convince you that they’re the publisher to watch this week (hell, this month, on the strength of this week alone), this week sees the second issue of the final Hero Squared story. Hero Squared, of course, is the brainchild of former Justice League International writers Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis and is not only one of Boom!’s better titles, but one of the most fun comics to come out in a long while.
Mix these suckers in with The Life and Times of Savior 28 and Super Human Resources and we’ve got a picture of a March 2009 where most of the truly great books on the racks were coming from small or at best mid-sized press houses. Check back later this week, when I’ll have a couple of conversations with writer J.M. DeMatteis–one about the recent JLI hardcover release and one about the aforementioned Hero Squared. In the meantime, Make Mine Boom!
