Comics - Everyone Else (NOT Marvel / DC)


#1404

Might be wrong on the exact number but think 48 issues is it, so 4 OHCs or 8 trades.


#1405

Yeah Revival is ending very soon, I think 48 is right from Ben or around there (I’m not sure they’ve fully announced the exact issue but the current storyline is headlined as the conclusion).


#1406

Cool, thanks for the info. I assume you guys recommend it since you both seem to be reading it?


#1407

Not necessarily. Don’t you know by now that many comics readers only buy the books to complain about them?


#1408

Really? That’s a thing? :wink:


#1409

Yeah, I’ve got the OHCs. I can’t recommend it unreservedly as it’s one of those stories that’s built around its central, mysterious concept and I wonder if the revelation of what’s going on will hold up.

On the other hand, the journey of the story so far has been very good. It’s quite a subtle book at times too, particularly with that central concept.

Only the foolish ones.

Amazon’s listing for the final TPB says it collects 42-47:

Revival’s another one I need to catch up on. I have the first four TPBs, but need to re-read them before reading the rest.


#1411

Does anyone know if it’s worth getting the hardcover deluxe collection? I prefer hardcovers these days but only if they’re worth the money.


#1412

I’ve got 'em. They’re good 12 issue hardbacks that you can get for a little less than the two trades they collect.


#1413

Revival is superb. Definitely one if my favourite series over the last 2 years, up there with Rachel Rising.


#1414

Tokyo Ghost #6 - 10 were absolutely amazing. Sean Murphy’s artwork was just stunning, and Remender’s story hit close to home. What a great ending too! Brilliant stuff all round.

Dark Horse and Archie are first up in the Solicitations for February thread.


Also, 25¢ IMAGE COMICS Books For Company’s 25TH ANNIVERSARY

2017 will be the 25th anniversary of Image Comics’ launch, and writer/co-owner Robert Kirkman is celebrating the occasion by making his three primary books 25¢ during the month of February. The Walking Dead #163, Invincible #133, and Outcast by Kirkman & Azaceta #25 will all have a list price of 25¢.
Each of the issues begins a new story-arc: The Walking Dead explores the aftermath of “The Whisperer War”; Invincible kicks off the 12-part finale to the long-running series; and Outcast’s arc is described as a “major turning point” that adds a new facet to the book: hope.
Look for Image Comics’ full February 2017 solicitations later this month.

I read the final issue of BPRD: HELL ON EARTH yesterday. So sad to think I won’t be getting this book monthly any more. :cry:


#1419

Apparently Campbell confirmed there will be a third cycle of it, but even so - it’ll be without John Arcudi.

Warhammer 40K: Will of Iron 1 (Titan) - I’ve just subscribed to the WH40K part works novels so I’m on a Warhammer kick at the moment. I’ve read the previous series’ that Boom! did some years ago and I would say that even after just one issue, this is much more in the same tone as the novels. Grim, thoughtful characters and a massive wealth of world building backstory to pick from. Good stuff.

Seven to Eternity 2 (Image) - After 2 issues I’m out. Even the Opena art can’t save this from being a run of the mil sci fi tale that feels uninspired and unoriginal. It’s not awful by any means but why should I spend my money on something that’s just ok?

Dishonored 1 (Titan) - I’ve no idea if this is tied to the video game, which I tried ages ago and hated, but I gave it chance based on the fact it’s written by Gordon Rennie. The lead is a spymaster and he’s looking for a new apprentice whilst around him the criminal underworld is rising up. It’s fairly standard stuff but the art is nice and I’ll give it one more issue at least.

Skybourne 2 (Boom!) - Frank Cho gives us more details about the immortals and adds to the mystery of who would want to kill them. Better than than the first issue and I think I’ll commit to the rest of the mini.

Surgeon X 1 (Image) - There’s a lot to like in this tale of a world where antibiotics are now being rationed as immunity to them has grown out of control. Characters are established well and the art is pretty good but sometimes I felt that the writer was trying too hard and things came across a little forced.

The Fourth Planet 1 (Chapter House Comics) - If you like East of West then you’ll probably like this as the setting and themes are quite similar. The art is perhaps a bit too scratchy and rough at times but there is enough intrigue to warrant further reading.


#1421

I totally agree on Seven To Eternity, Bobby. I was looking forward to that a lot, based on Remender’s current form and Opena’s art. But I found #1 really slow and unengaging. I didn’t even bother with #2.

I may get it in OHC at some point down the line, just to appreciate the artwork at a larger size, but for now I’m done.


#1422

You might want to give number 2 a look. It seemed like it changed things up a bit.
