After reading my review of Doc Savage #1 and Justice League 3000 #1 you are probably thinking that I just enjoy giving books terrible reviews.  Let me assure you, you are 100% wrong.  There is no part of me that likes wasting valuable time reading books that are bad and having to share that with all of you.  Luckily for you and I Dead Body Road #1 was released this week and it makes up for the inadequacies of the previous two titles I mentioned.  Dead Body Road follows the story of a heist gone wrong, thieves trying to get revenge on those who may have caused the heist to go bad AND a rogue cop who is hunting them all down after his girlfriend, a police officer too, was killed during the heist.  Dead Body Road does what many comics can’t seem to get right, its a great mix of art, writing AND the book flows so well that it leaves you wanting #2 to come out right away.  It is so refreshing that Image can continue to put out great titles and you know why they can?  Its because they are not shackled to the same old characters and storylines from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 00’s and 10’s.  I put all those numbers down to make a point, DC and Marvel have been trying to create something new out of the same cast of characters for almost 7 decades!  They must be doing something right because they have stayed in business all these years but for the fan who wants to read something new and fresh, it is getting increasingly hard if not impossible to do it with the big two publishers.  Like me, if you want original and different, Image has some of the best titles out there right now.

CryptozoicMan2Are you a fan of Comic Book Men on AMC? Me too!  Were you excited about the release of Cryptozoic Man because it was created by some of the guys from Comic Book Men?  Me Too! (Wow, we have a lot in common) Don’t you just LOVE Cryptozoic Man? Me…No wait…I don’t… In fact, I have never read anything worse in my entire life.  I am not going to waste your’s or my precious time reviewing this thing.  Its a pile of garbage wrapped in a rotten, bile soaked flap of ass skin.  This book tries too hard to be something different and clever and all it does is make you want to vomit. I don’t know what these guys were thinking when they did this book but all I can say is please make it STOP! -K

 

news_illustre_1385752941_157Black Science from Image happened to be my favorite book of the week and really a solid read compared to a lot of the books we read and review.  The artwork is top notch and the story kept going at a good pace to keep you interested in the outcome of the issue.  The book follows the adventure (or horror show) of a scientist who is trying to make his way across the landscape of a hostile planet to get back to his “ship” before the thing explodes, killing everyone in his team, including his children.  The planet is filled with toad like creatures and there seems to be no Kermit like amphibians in this place.  The dialogue is primarily in his head as he runs and races across the swap like world.  In a few cells the book draws you in to care what happens to him and his crew.  Creating empathy in a comic takes work and most fall way short of me caring about the characters.  Black Science turns that around and keeps me looking forward to #2.  Solid read and we would definitely recommend this book. -K

 

scooby-doo-team-up-2013-1-cover

Ok, so each week we try to review new books that arrive here in the store.  We try to pick books that are new, different and might get people to listen to the podcast.  This past week one of the titles happens to be, Scooby Doo Team Up #1.  So much for different or edgy huh?  But, I guess in todays day and age, the simple goodheartedness of Scooby-Doo is different.  I won’t spend a lot of time writing about the book itself.  What do you want me to say? Its Sccoby-Doo teaming up with the classic Batman and Robin to solve a mystery within 32 pages.  Its a fun read and if nothing else, its nostalgic.  It brings you back to a simpler time when Saturdays were meant for the consumption of animation not social media.  If you have kids and you want them to be exposed to some good clean fun, why not pick up a copy of Scooby-Doo Team up #1. Or if you are an adult who really just wants to take a little stroll down memory lane this will do it for you. -K
