I love Jeff Lemire, and I love his continued success. Which reminds me, even though I recently read Essex County, I should probably polish off my back issues of Descender (also being adapted).
Gale Anne and my Dark Lord and Master (HAIL, HAIL) are adapting El Pantera for television. Now, truthfully, I’ve never heard of El Pantera. But I’m going anywhere Ellis leads me.
Fear and Loathing is getting itself a graphic novel adaptation from Top Shelf, and the mofuckah is arriving in October. I’m down for supporting anything F&L, so put me down for a purchase. Who? You. Right here. Behind the keyboard.
Oh fuck! One of my favorite authors is getting into the funny book game with publisher IDW. I’m in. It doesn’t even matter what the comic book is about, I’m going to be buying it.
Buy These Flippin Comics!!! (9.18.13) – Dr. Strange-Love or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love “Event” Books
As I write this, it is very early morning, and the world is quiet. The day’s caffeine long worn off, the exhilaration of the Breaking Bad marathon I’ve been in the middle off is the only thing that keeps me up this late. Oh, and this column. For those of you not in the know, this is the virtual campfire we comic-ingesting fangirls and boys gather round, debating and discussing, ranking and rating the best and brightest funnybooks to come out each week. What has got you jazzed for Wednesday (the comic-nerd’s Holy day)? Has DC’s Villain-palooza got you frothing? Has the Marvel Event-festival torn your psyche and wallet in twain? Have no clue what the fudgsicle even comes out this week??? Hit the jump and have all these questions answered, and more!
