The sun cut through the curtain. Blades of foggy light slipped into the room. Dennis hated when that shit happened. He bought these special Chimera skin blackout curtains specifically to keep out the magical glow of the Ever-Sun. He knew he would have to give the dirty little Mukkuak that he bought the curtains from a piece of his mind.

I’m not certain that I like the direction this comic is going recently. It was one of my favorite comics due to it’s sharp wit and conscious writing. Recently I feel like it’s trying a new direction, which is great, comics evolve and that’s fine. I just don’t think this new direction is for me.

avengers-15All-New, All-Different Avengers #15 (Marvel)
Mark Waid (W) Adam Kubert (A)
All these Civil War II tie ins are getting a little confusing due to the delays. Hopefully this issue doesn’t suffer from that same curse.

ms-marvel-12Ms. Marvel #12 (Marvel)
G. Willow Wilson (W) Takeshi Miyagawa (A)
We’re getting an extra long issue this time. Kamala has a lot to think about after the mess that was Civil War II. Getting abandoned by your role model takes it’s toll. Time for some soul searching.

titans-4Titans #4 (DC)
Dan Abnett (W) Brett Booth (A)
This series continues to be the only comic to my knowledge that deals directly with the issues spinning out of Rebirth. For that alone, it is due praise. For other reasons too, you know, good writing, amazing art, all that stuff.

hellblazer-3Hellblazer #3 (DC)
Simon Oliver (W) Moritat (A)
Chas is about to fuck up royally and Constantine is going to have to pick up the pieces. Weird, isn’t it supposed to be the other way around. Pop a bottle, this is an occasion.

teen-titans-1Teen Titans #1 (DC)
Ben Percy (W) Jonboy Meyers (A)
If Percy writes this comic anything like how he is writing Green Arrow, this is one to look at. Speaking of things to look at. Check out that beautiful interior work. Grab this comic.

First arc post-Monster-Men. I’m really excited to watch this series develop. It’s been nothing short of phenomenal so far.

civil-war-2-6Civil War II #6 of 7 (Marvel)
Brian Michael Bendis (W) David Marquez (A)
Does the future hold what we expect? I can only hope not. After the last issue, something big has to happen to redeem some important characters. This is where Bendis shines.

Will pride end the world? Probably not, but I’m sure it won’t leave the world a better place.

wonder-woman-9Wonder Woman #9 (DC)
Greg Rucka (W) Liam Sharp (A)
A true hero looks out for even their worst enemies. Never more true than with Wonder Woman. This is solid storytelling at it’s best. Please read this comic.

Matt Fraction (W) Christian Ward (A)
The last issue of this comic sucked me right back in. Come on, nothing says epic like a little adultery and murder.

Part of me really wants to see this comic on the small screen, while part of me doesn’t want to taint the actual comic with a poor recreation. Not that my opinion matters, I just happen to have a platform to tell people.

spider-man-deadpool-10Spider-Man/Deadpool #10 (Marvel)
Joe Kelly (W) Ed McGuinness (A)
This is one of the best Marvel comics I’ve read in a long time. Sure, it may not be the most Hickman-y complex story, or the most Fraction-y human story, but it’s god damned funny. Not in a trying too hard way, in an actual belly laugh way.

Jeff Lemire (W) Dustin Nguyen (A)
Apparently Lemire isn’t done with the histories of our characters just yet. We have one more issue in this arc to tear our hearts out. Because that’s what we need this week, more heartbreak.

Robert Kirkman (W) Paul Azaceta (A)
This evil thing is really catching on, right? I mean who though satanic possession would be such a commodity in today’s society? All these new-ager’s and their crystals, you’d think good old fashion satanism would be a thing of the past. Well, you’d think wrong.

Dennis made his way out of his triangular door. How he hated Post-halfling design. A pair of Tulips greeted him as he walked through his jungle of a yard. His heart leapt in his chest and he ran in tiny hobbled steps to the flowers. They smiled at Dennis as he bent over, getting a better look. Their smiles were wide, eyes closed, as he plucked them from the ground. Their expressions faded and their leaves wilted. “Fucking wizards, bringing everything to fucking life.” He ducked under a willow branch and pushed open the white picket fence at the edge of his property.
