I’m back kiddies even busier than before . Crap wait I think I did that time off wrong well too late now because here I am take it or leave it. I haven’t gotten overboard on books the last two weeks but have been getting some quality stuff so that’s what matters right.
Double Barrel #1 $1.99
Why this book well it’s pretty simple and at this point you should know why I want . It’s 120 pages for two bucks of course I am buying it. This is two separate stories One about a washed up high school football star (better be an Al Bundy reference or I’m gonna fricken rage) who finds a portal to the underworld, and another story that is a follow up to Far Arden . I’m interested in the size and I like anything that bucks the normal formula and honestly all comic fans should too.
Pick of the week:
Batman: Arkham City: End Game #1+2 $0.99 a piece
Written by: Derek Fridolfs
Art by: Patrick Gleason (covers) , Jason Shawn Alexander
This a little bit of a cheat because it spans two weeks but if you are a Batman fan you should read this short series (6 issues) . The premise is it bridges the gap between the Arkham City game and the new Harley Quin Dlc that just cam out. Honestly though you should read this digital only book even if you didn’t play that game. It offers a different plot line and the art is very cool and different. All you really need to know is Joker is dead and you are good to go, because Batshit crazy follows (pun intended ) . I’m in love and only $6 for the run it’s perfect for me and hold little risk if you like the Bat’s.
Ultimate: Ultimates #11 $3.99
Written by : Jonathan Hickman, Sam Humphries
Art by : Butch Guice , Leaonard Kirk , Luke Ross , Patrick Zircher
I have talked a bit about this book before , but here we are again and I want you to walk away with one thought. BUY THIS BOOK. Especially if you are reading a certain other team up, battle book and am a little disenchanted . This is what you need to know the US launched a nuke at the Children , and it didn’t work ( BALLS is all I have to say about that ) so now we overreact and disband and lock up S.H.I.E.L.D. and hope the Children aren’t to mad . Well Tony and Thor have other ideas and we get some cool drama . This book is near perfect good art, good writing, cool characters, and the story makes sense and you care.
I really don’t have much else to discuss from the week I didn’t was real meh on America’s got Powers but I’m still in it just might not have been an issue I wanted it to be . Also a reminder Hoax Hunters #1 comes out next month and if you have a chance you should get it. I have read a review copy of this and its awesome and I hope people read it because I’m real glad it got picked up.
Thanks again kids , and don’t forget to check out the podcast and hit me up on Twitter @Lunchbox700
