The Last Space Race #1: I think I found it. A sci fi comic I actually give a shit about.
The Unstoppable Wasp #1: I loved the last series, but I can't get past the art here. Can't do the manga influence. Not for me.
Weapon H #9: still fucking great.
What If Marvel Comics Went Metal with Ghost Rider? #1: god this is fucking horrible.
What if Peter Parker Became the Punisher? #1: this is really fun. Felt like an old school 90s What If?
X-23 #5: not bad. Didn't light my world on fire.
X-Men Black Mojo #1: Oh my God...this was fucking funny. I dug it a lot.
X-Men Black Mystique #1: decent. It did feel very rote.
Babyteeth #13: holy shit. This was good.
Bettie Page Halloween Special #1: the first story was fun, but the second was almost unreadable.
Books of Magic #1: so...are they just remaking the original series? No complaints here, really, because the other Sandman U reboot books have sucked horribly. This was pretty good.
Dead Kings #1: good introduction to the world. I'll try another.
High Heaven #2: still pretty good.
Infinity Wars Arachknight #1: this was...not too bad.
Infinity Wars Sleepwalker #2: still pretty good.
Infinity Wars Soldier Supreme #2: this was also pretty good.
Judge Dread Toxic #1: no thanks.
Justice League Odyssey #2: this is kind of cool.
KISS Blood and Stardust #1: I'm intrigued, but not enough to continue.
Lodger #1: a crime book by the Laphams? I'm in...I read it. Nope. Not in.
Mars Attacks #1: I liked this a lot more than I thought I would. I would check it out in trade.
Moon Knight #200: this was a slog.
Old Lady Harley #1: holy shit this was awful.
Red Sonja Halloween #1: same as the Bettie Page one, first story was decent, but the second was unreadable. Also, can we do something other than Kulan Gath?
Supervillains Unite! The Complete Super-villain Team-up: this is a really fun collection of mostly shenanigans between Doom and Namor. I did it as a read-along for the Defender's Dialogue podcast like Godzilla. Next up is Man-Thing!
And now the stuff that's been sitting on my bedside table forever:
Savage Dragon #246-7: really enjoying this part of the run.
Young Romance The Best of Simon & Kirby's Romance Comics: some of these are pretty hokey, but there's a lot of really great storytelling and boisterous early silver age work here. Recurring themes: young women are a pain in the ass. Haha! People talk all about Kirby defining superhero comics in the 60s, but he also created several genres with Simon, Romance Comics being one of them.
In the Pines: 5 Murder Ballads: this is a cool collection of adaptations of old murder ballads by Erik Kriek. There is stark terror in a lot of these pages and it was extremely compelling.
Flayed Corpse and Other Stories: I almost bought this when it came out through DCBS but it was an expensive month so I dropped it. I then picked it up last summer when Stacy and I went to Seattle at the Fantagraphics Books store. It is quite easily the best sequential work I've read all year. It's a collection of short strips that deal with horror, sex and nihilism. It's beautiful, funny and sad. Josh Simmons has quickly climbed my list of favourite cartoonists.
