What in the world is this week? It has to be my smallest buy week…ever? It’s crazy. Let’s get to one tiny, tiny week for me in The Pull, I suppose.
Book of the Week: DCeased Dead Planet #1
I am such a DCeased mark at this point that this series could be DCeased: Tom Taylor Hates David Harper and I’d be like, “Wow, a little intense, but I’m curious to see where he takes it.” Given the simplicity of the idea and the depth of emotions they’ve mined with this franchise, I am in for whatever with DCeased, as it long ago surpassed its trappings as DC’s Marvel Zombies.
The idea that this features the legacy characters – your Cassies, Damians, and Jons – returning to Earth to try and reclaim it from the Anti-Life Equation infected masses is a wondrous idea, and honestly, kind of a fascinating look at what comics could do if they weren’t beholden to the Illusion of Change. Plus: THE UNKILLABLES GANG IS BACK. Let’s go, Tree Lobsters! It’s time to make the magic happen!
“You’re coming with me”: The for sure buys and recommendations of the week
Adventureman #2: I really enjoyed the first issue of this when I dug into it as a digital read before release, but for some reason, it worked even better as a print comic. Maybe it’s the right format for this throwback like comic, but whatever the reason, I’m a big fan of Adventureman. Plus…that scooter on the cover! I LIKE.
Oblivion Song #25: An extra-sized, undoubtedly extra crazy 25th issue of Oblivion Song is here. Glad I’m back onboard, because I enjoy this comic.
Would buy, but I’m a dirty, rotten trade waiter
- Bitter Root #9
