Here we are another week gone by , the patriotism has died down and luckily my dog can sleep through the night without being interrupted by fireworks (which of course so can I) . I hope you spent your holiday burning flesh and reading comics because that is the American way.
Spider-men #3 $3.99
I know I can’t shut up about this book but I am super excited for it. We’ve met the characters , we’ve established the beginning, there is only three issues left let’s get the crazy on the train. I really hope this keeps going strong because my love for the first two issues was a surprise . Want more do you say I mean this is comics and we always want more. Well let’s how about this issue has an awesome cover, and includes the Ultimates and Nick Fury. I’m sorry can I pay more money for this book?
Yes I know Walking Dead #100 is coming out and honestly that is the only thing that is exciting this week , but you already know that and you need to spend more money.
Pick Of The Week Part 1
Hoax Hunters #1 $2.99
Written by: Michael Moreci, Steve Seeley
Art by: Axel Medellin
So it’s a two part pick of the week because this book I read more than a month ago and if you follow me on twitter you know I have been babbling about it the whole time. So obviously I got this book for free I mention this because it matters to some people. I love this book !
Ok in all seriousness the book if you haven’t read the zero issue is about a group that puts on a reality show debunking hoaxes about the paranormal. This is all a cover though and they are really investigating paranormal stuff. I know what you are thinking B.P.R.D but that would be unfairly dismissing it,; and honestly there are worse ways to be insulted , but this book stands on it’s own in a way I can not explain in review.
This issue takes us to the Bayou where a bunch of animals are bizarrely getting killed. I rarely read reviews before I write mine but I did this time. There are complaints that the book doesn’t make sense for a first issue (makes more sense if you read #0 or backup stories ) and a case can be made for that. I disagree the book hits the ground running and I can see that the space will be filled in as it progresses . Do not expect a normal #1 which is a nice change because sometimes one’s are really cool but don’t fit in to the rest of the run once it progresses this book will not be one of those.
The art is fantastic and I cannot wait for the rest of the characters to get fleshed out because the writing is very well done. This is a new property that is interesting and exciting and that is the kind of thing that nerds like me complain about all the time so I can’t see a reason to not purchase the book. Want one more reason well even though I already read this book I also bought it because I wanted to support it so get it digitally today or in print on 7/11 at your local shop.
Pick Of The Week Part 2
Danger Club #3 $2.99

I’m sorry I can write about Hoax Hunters and Danger Club the same week give me second I have to pull the chair away from the desk I can’t fit under it anymore. This is it the beginning of the madness , the battle has begun, and not all of the kids are going to make it. Not only do you get awesome battle scenes which is usually enough but some of the secrets are revealed and they ask more questions then give answers. Also there is a kick in the nuts moment at the end that you need in these books because then you can spend the rest of the time worrying about what’s next .
I read this book twice because there is moments that are a little hard to keep up with, and the art was very good but a little less flawless then previous issues. Reading a book twice isn’t the end of the world though so buy it and read it again damnit. There is no other superhero book on the market like this and I’m happy I’m reading it.
I really could go on and on but I won’t because well I need to go to work make money and spend it on comics and video games, that’s how the world works right , right? Good now convince my wife. Stalk me on Twitter, and listen to the podcast or they start beating me again*.
