Lost: Some time. If found, please return.
It appears to be Wednesday already and I’ve barely had time to think.
Luckily I have managed to read some of the comics that are out this week and some of them are really good. I mean, REALLY good.
Unfortunately, I’ve fallen behind in some other titles. And somehow managed to miss issue 2 of Motherlands so was shocked to see issue 3 on the shelf today. I have picked both up but not read them yet so I’ll come back to them at a later date.
I was going to say I was looking forward to the new Crow comic, but in actual fact most of The Crow follow ups just make me want to reread the original and the best. Momento Mori #1 from IDW Publishing is an as expected narrative wise with some good artwork that sets the scene and tone. Nothing spectacular but probably enough for fans of the franchise. Check out my full review on comiconverse.com later in the week.
Days of Hate #3 from Image comics continues to be an outstanding character driven narrative with some of my favourite comic book art in years. This is a comic that I would recommend to anyone. It has an engaging story and wonderfully designed layouts which allow the art work to flow from panel to panel, page to page. There is a lot going on visually and narratively. For an immersive comic reading experience you can’t go wrong with this.
Days of Hate #3 is published by Image, written by Ales Kot, illustrated by Danijel Zezelj, colours by Jordie Bellaire.
Labyrinth: Coronation #2 from Boom! Studios is out. I’ll assume you’re reading this so won’t go on about it.
You are reading it aren’t you?
On my list of comics to read before I go blind from eating chocolate this weekend are Abbott #3 and Lucas Stand: Inner Demons #2 both from Boom! Studios and Highest House #2 from IDW Publishing. Also Saga has reached issue 50!!
And that’s about it, except of course for Planet of The Apes: Ursus #3. This is turning out to be a magnificent beast of a comic. There is something about the interplay between the recognisable story and the newly created history that gels so well, it is difficult to believe one part of it is 50 years old and the other brand new. My hat I completely off for David F Walker, Chris Mooneyham and Jason Wordie. Together they have produced something special.
And for my full review check out Comiconverse.com where it will soon appear.
Now all that remains is the inevitable slide show.
