So, it’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these posts! Honestly, my comic reading doesn’t change much. I try and keep my pull list tight because of money but I have been checking out some new stuff.
Preacher Book One by Garth Ennis & Steve Dillon
My local shop was having a 4th of July sale and I’ve been wanting to check this out since I’ve been watching the show. Let me just say, I’m glad I wasn’t someone reading this issue by issue because I wouldn’t be able to handle it. It does help make the show make a little more sense now. The timelines are 100% different though but I really enjoyed it. I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of the books.
Thunderbolts by Jim Zub (Writer) & Jim Malin (Artist)
I picked this up because it has Winter Soldier. Someone was nice enough to let me have their digital code for the first issue. Since I enjoyed it I went ahead and added it to my pull list! The 2nd issue was just as good and I can’t wait to see where the story goes. I really love the art and the writing is pretty hilarious at times. Just goes to show how those digital codes can turn someone onto a new comic. If you have some laying around, consider giving them away!
Black Widow by Mark Waid & Chris Samnee & Matt Wilson
This shouldn’t be a surprise. I love the new look they gave Natasha! Her style is simple but it’s nice to see creators up her game a bit and switch her designs up. Plus it gives us all something new to cosplay. The 4th issue was the last issue that hit the shelves and I love that we’re learning more about her back story. I can’t wait to see what happens with the rest of her story and if any old friends pop up. Matt Wilson does a fantastic job with the colors. Seriously, this team is perfect and you can tell they enjoy working together.
Yup. I’m still reading this series. Every arc has been a…nailbiter…and I can’t wait to see where it goes next. Just when you think the town is out of secrets, a new one pops up. I know a lot of comics are being turned into movies and shows these days, but I’d love to see this one hit the screen. I think it would be huge with the “Dexter” fanbase.
And that’s it! Not too much has changed but like I said, it’s been awhile since I’ve shared. I’m still reading “Sex Criminals” too of course. That’s another book everyone should be checking out. There are a few other books I’d like to check out but I’ll probably wait for the trades or see if I can find some more digital codes to see if I really want to invest. What books have you guys been reading? Anything I should check out?
