Cassidy shoved a fork full of peas into his mouth as he watched the news with the same sort of careless malaise that seemed to effect every facet of his life recently. Something something, tragedy, something something, deadly slime, something something, contamination, yadda yadda. It was this apathy in regards to the world and the plot devices in his life that allowed him to casually ignore the glowing green ooze that was swimming in between the peas on his plate.
Survival Fetish #1 (Black Mask)
Patrick Kindlon (W) Antonio Fuso (A)
I am so excited for this book. Everything I’ve seen about it is awesome and after There’s Nothing There, I can’t wait to dive into another Kindlon story.
Avengers #689 (Marvel)
Mark Waid/Al Ewing/Jim Zub (W) Pepe Larraz (A)
Two more issues away from the end of the ride. Things are getting pretty intense on “Punch people” Street.
Action Comics #1000 (DC)
Grant Morrison/Scott Snyder/Brian Michael Bendis/Geoff Johns/Paul Dini/Brad Meltzer/Richard Donner/Tom King/Marv Wolfman/Louise Simonson/Dan Jurgens/Pat Gleason/Peter Tomasi (W) Jim Lee/ Oliver Coipel/Jose Luiz Garcia-Lopez/ Jogn Cassaday/ Laura Martin/Jerry Ordway/Jordie Bellaire/Tim Sale/Curt Swan (A)
Look at all that talent. This is a landmark book for not only Superman, and DC, but the entire medium of comics. This should be a buy for anyone who loves reading these cheap stacks of paper every week. You owe it to your favorite creator.
Evolution #6 (Image)
James Asmus/Joshua Williamson/Christopher Sebela/ Joseph Keatinge (W) Joe Infurnari (A)
Looking to drop books soon and, man, I like this book, but I just don’t know if I can justify picking it up every month. Maybe I’ll scoop the trades.
Black Panther #172 (Marvel)
Ta-Nehisi Coates (W) Leonard Kirk (A)
Have not been feeling this book for a little while now. I try to hype it up, but I kinda feel like it’s dry. The first few arcs were so fucking good, but recently it feels like a waiting game. May be dropping this when the new numbering starts.
Iron Fist #80 (Marvel)
Ed Brisson (W) Damian Couceiro (A)
Another title I am not entirely sure I can justify following for much longer. It’s fun, and I love this tie in but we will have to see soon.
Ms. Marvel #29 (Marvel)
G. Willow Wilson (W) Nico Leon (A)
Almost fifty issues in and honestly, this book feels like it’s reaching the end of its run with this team. I’m not sure if that’s because of the big fiftieth issue coming up or just because I really haven’t been digging this last arc.
Tales of Suspense #104 (of 104) (Marvel)
Matthew Rosenberg (W) Travel Foreman (A)
Last issue of this incredibly fun mini series. I really love this book and this team is incredible. Hopefully they get a new series together soon.
Batman: Creature of the Night #3 (of 3) (DC)
Kurt Busiek (W) John Paul Leon (A)
The last issue of an amazing saga. You’d be a fool not to pick this one up.
Curse Words #13 (Image)
Charles Soule (W) Ryan Browne (A)
I love how fucking ridiculous this series is. Honestly, it’s brilliant in its stupidity sometimes.
Daredevil #601 (Marvel)
Charles Soule (W) Mike Henderson (A)
I have fucking loved this arc so much. I am genuinely interesting in seeing how Matt deals with this next series of hoops. There is something to be said about that.
Moonshine #9 (Image)
Brian Azzarello (W) Eduardo Risso (A)
This series is evolving quickly and that’s awesome. I love the concept but dwelling on what made the first arc great for too long could have sunk this ship. Change is good.
The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson #4 (Image)
Marc Andreyko/Eddie Gorodetsky (W) Ian Churchill (A)
This is the working man’s comic story. I love how real this all feels, you know, for a story about a superhero.
Giants #5 (of 5) (Dark Horse)
Carlos Valderrama (W) Miguel Valderrama (A)
This book is Akira meets Pacific Rim, and it’s finishing up strong. I really look forward to seeing what these brothers come out with next. Keep them on your radar.
Rumble #5 (Image)
John Arcudi (W) David Rubin (A)
Last issue before another hiatus. Sad to see it leave, but so fucking thrilled that it came back in the first place.
Infidel #2 (Image)
Pornsak Pichetshote (W) Aaron Campbell (A)
Holy hell. The first issue of this book actually gave me nightmares. Seriously, holy shit. The imagery is beyond haunting. Petrifying even. Check this book out.
Black Hammer: Age of Doom #1 (Dark Horse)
Jeff Lemire (W) Dean Ormston (A)
Come on. If you aren’t reading this, You are missing out on one of the best comics in the past few years. Grab this book as a jumping on point. Pick up the trades while you’re at it.
The Highest House #3 (IDW)
Mike Carey (W) Peter Gross (A)
This is a fucking brilliant fantasy story that you are missing. So stop missing it God dammit.
Deathbed #3 (DC)
Joshua Williamson (W) Riley Rossmo (A)
I am in love with this book. That is all.
Descender #29 (Image)
Jeff Lemire (W) Dustin Nguyen (A)
They’re teasing this as the last arc potentially, so something that might make us think that it’s the end is going to happen, but come on, they’re teasing it “might” be the end, so it totally won’t be. Still excited for the arc though.
Batman #45 (DC)
Tom King (W) Tony S. Daniel (A)
Another interlude before the big ole wedding issue. This time with extra time traveler.
Mister Miracle #8 (of 12) (DC)
Tom King (W) Mitch Gerads (A)
Come on. Just come cry with me. Do it.
The sound of someone’s bowel’s melting through the floor of their pelvis, and onto the floor is something not many people have heard. To Cassidy, it was nothing special, as he didn’t ear or feel the grotesque process. Eyes glued the television, mind already mush, body rapidly following.
