Ridiculously good week for comics
If you can’t find a comic book this week, you’re not trying hard enough.
It’s simply a great week to buy comics. Let’s look at some of the highlights.
Like classic comic strips? New collections of “Little Orphan Annie” and “Dick Tracy” hit stores today.
Like well-written, literary comics? There’s a new “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” by Alan Moore.
Best value of the week? The first issue of “The Unwritten” by Mike Carey and Peter Gross. It’s just $1 for 48 pages! This was probably my favorite Vertigo first issue since “Y: The Last Man” #1. If you like intelligent comics, there’s no reason you shouldn’t at least try it out for $1. Like I said after reading a preview copy at the ComicsPRO meeting in Memphis: “The Unwritten” looks to be a must for Harry Potter fans over the age of 17.
In the mood for a big superhero crossover? “Fusion” features the Avengers, the Thunderbolts, Cyberforce and Hunter/Killer.
Want a mystery? Mark Waid’s new “Unknown” is said to be in the vein of his award-winning mystery series “Ruse.”
How about a thriller? The third “un” title of the week is Mark Sable’s “Unthinkable” about a writer tasked to come up with doomsday scenarios for the government — that later end up coming true.
