I’m going to curiosity-read The Dark Knight III. But at least, no matter how terrible the story, it seems the artwork is going to be gnarly.
I can’t think of anything more antithetical to Watchmen than Jim Lee’s shitty super stylized style. So when he brings his stale ass saltine flow to Before Watchmen: Nite Owl #1‘s variant cover, I puke a little in my mouth.
Welcome to the newly minted (and perhaps not staying named as such) Comics We’re Buying This F**king Week. Figured I’d cut the bullshit. Herein us guys and gals of the sequential funny book time can share the comic books we’re digging on in a given week. It’s a pretty exciting week, as I’m getting a new dose of Wood to engulf. Always a sucker for the Wood. (And infantile puns. It’s been a long day, forgive me.)
Dig the releases for yourself at ComicList.
After the Watchmen movie, there is very little that can be done to the franchise that can scar me. Yet this news sends an electric shock up my taint. A Watchmen 2? Jesus. Really. Really?
Andy Kubert be jumping on the Action Comics train in January for a quick trip with Mr. Grant Morrison. Nice!
With the stink of Memorial Day weekend-promoted seared animal and sunshine still on my flesh, I bustle to bring you this week’s Variant Covers. Summer time always smacks of considerable events, the now common deluge of superhero flicks, and a good excuse to read some funny books in front of that big shiny star looming down at us. Per usual, I encourage readers to share their pull lists for the week. I can’t read everything, haven’t heard of your favorite niche comic but I’m interested, and often just like to look at slicing swords and telekinetic knives.
