The Ongoing New Comics Thread


#1726

New Zealand? That’s a territory in Australia, right? :wink:


#1727

Ah, nah, sorry if that came off as a rebuke.
It was more of an odd notation of my own.

But yeah, while it’s still not up to par, I actually enjoyed #5 just as a regular read. Felt kinda fun.
Although @markabnett is making salient points about the representation.


#1728

It’s okay Ronnie.
Canadians always male that mistake
:wink:


#1729

Sorry about the essay. It’s just amazing how little effort was made to understand a culture where a story of is based.

It makes me want to use allllll the panda gifs

#1731

Oh yeah, and it wouldn’t have even changed much of what was enjoyable about it.
So the lack of accuracy is just not putting in the effort at all.


#1732

Ouch, I felt that burn all the way over here!


#1733

#1734

Only WildStorm: Michael Cray for me today.


#1735

Have those comics been price stickered and placed next to a radiator?!? :wink:

Looks like Action Comics #999, Mister Miracle #7, Marvel 2-in-1 #4 and maybe VS #2 for me.


#1736

No, it’s an optical illusion.


#1737

Only New Super-Man and the Justice League of China, Mister Miracle, and Scooby-Apocalypse for this week.


#1738

Nothing’s standing out as cover of the week for me this week.

I guess I’ll say Detective just because it’s trying to do something different by being a “scene” rather than a “pin up”.


#1739

No not a great week for covers from that selection. I think for me probably the Flash and the Avengers/Hulk one have the most impact.

I’m quite a fan of a ‘scene’ cover but none of them speak that much to me.


#1740

Does that translate as “it’s got a speech balloon on the front”? :slight_smile:


#1741

Well duh :stuck_out_tongue:


#1742

If you’re looking for an old-school “story” cover then it is easily Flash.

If you’re looking for something that just grabs you, it’s Avengers.

In other words, I agree with Gar.

Really, however, Darth Vader is the best cover—it just loses points for being a reproduction of a shot from a film.


#1743

Flash and Vader are the ones that stood out for me too. The Flash one feels very familiar - almost like it’s a classic template - but the only example that springs to mind for me right now is this one:


#1744

Mister Miracle #7: Any issue away from King’s thematics and generally blandly executed Apokolips/New Genesis war drama is a good issue - relatively. It’s a small issue with a few naggling things, but on the gradient scale of this series - it’s on the high end if just for sidestepping all of the dumb stuff. For the most part.

Sideways #2: Better handled than the first issue. Less splashes and large one-page panels means more times for actual character bits and gags. Which, it turns out, makes for something actually briskly entertaining. Hope #3 continues this trend as the cast is growing on me now.

New Super-Man and the Justice League of China #21: Great issue. The series maintains a proficiency for low stakes but high marks in character development. The Aqua-Man of North Korea is just a delight and this arc is really hitting a good groove all around.

Scooby-Apocalypse #23: It’s aight.


#1745

I really like the Detective cover, plus the Avengers No Surrender and the Flash covers stand out for me.
