Weekly Recommendations for 12/11/08

by

Yes, I know, we haven’t posted reviews for last week’s comics. Still, that shouldn’t stop us from looking what this week brings, including the beginning of a new era for Marvel Comics, or so they say.

DC Comics

Final Crisis #5 (of 7): I honestly forget what’s happening from month (or 6-8 weeks) to month in this, the biggest crossover event in DC since, apparently, the original Crisis. I’ll still get it, but man, the delays really drag this down. Or maybe that’s just me.

Watchmen #1 New Printing: Hey it’s only 1.50. BUY IT if you don’t own the originals, a trade or have read it.

Marvel Comics

Marvels Eye of Camera: A follow up to Marvels, written by our boy Kurt Busiek. I didn’t read Marvels (I know I know), but I feel someone will be interested in this.

Secret Invasion: Dark Reign: I won’t go into this too much if you haven’t read the finale of Secret Invasion, but the end portends big things for the Marvel Universe (or so we’re always led to believe, but of course, aside from perhaps a death, in a year, the Marvel Universe will be back to status quo). I’m not sure how much I like it, but you can bet your ass I’ll be buying this issue to see what the fuck’s going on. Basically, shit happens kids.

Indies

American Freakshow GN: Also known as Goki’s home videos.

Boys Over Flowers Tp Vol 33: This sounds like an inverse American Beauty. Instead of the chick and roses, it’s Kevin Spacey naked with roses. SCORE!

Painkiller Jane vs. Terminator Vol 1: My money’s on the woman with drugs, which is basically what Sarah Connor is anyways.

That’s all for this week. There really aren’t many funny titles this week. Writers are getting smarter. Or maybe I’m getting used to the bonehead fucking titles.

What Spiffy’s buying: Final Crisis, Booster Gold, Secret Six and Dark Reign. More DC 3:1 over Marvel. That never happens!

    I kept trying to do a review for Secret Invasion #8, but I kept getting stuck. That issue and Dark Reign #1 might make for some great roundtable discussion fodder, though. The Marvel Universe is definitely a different place than it was before Secret Invasion.

    “in a year, the Marvel Universe will be back to status quo”

    I wouldn’t be too sure. A lot of the changes from House of M, Civil War, and World War Hulk haven’t been undone yet, so who knows when Marvel will revert to the status quo. IF it does.

    Got Marvels: Eye of the Camera #1 and it was very good, although some of it was a retread of what Busiek did in the original Marvels. Still, it’s great to see the Marvel Universe through Phil’s lens again.
