Another month of clearing off my to-read comics pile, and some more very quick reactions:
Captain Britain: A Crooked World: The Moore run. Not his best, but still very good.
Howard the Duck: The Partworks edition. I’d read the Essential a few years ago, it’s nice to see some of it in colour.
The Life and Death of Captain Marvel, Parts 1 and 2: I love all the Marvel cosmic stuff in this, but Mar-Vell is an incredibly dull character. Dying is the only interesting thing he ever did.
Judge Dredd: America: Very good, though I was less a fan of the follow-ups.
Bandette, Volume 2: Stealers Keepers!: Not as great as Vol. 1, but still a lovely book.
Sláine Vol 1: Great art, but not for me.
The Nameless City Vol 1: I havem’t read much Faith Erin Hicks stuff, and need to read more.
Ghosts: If people are looking for more kid-friendly Day of the Dead stories after seeing Coco, this is worth checking out from Raina Telgemeier.
The Ballad of Halo Jones: Still great. I might even check out the colourised versions they’re bringing out this year.
Giant Days: Not On the Test Edition Vol. 1: It’s odd seeing Max Sarin’s art from only 2 years ago, and seeing how much she’s grown as an artist. Her stuff here isn’t bad, but it’s miles away from the new issues.
Boundless: Some nice short stories with lovely art from Jillian Tamaki.
Kingdom: Aux Drift: Not much story progress considering how the story doesn’t come out that often. I’m still on board.
XIII Vol. 2-4: Good, but I’m not sure I’ll continue on with the series.
Wet Moon, Volume 1: Feeble Wanderings: Found and old copy of this cheap, and it made me want to get the rest of the series.
Astro City Vol. 11-12: Still one of the best superhero books going, if a bit predictable…
Fantasy Sports No. 1 and 2: Saw these on display at the library and decided to try them. Nothing too memorable, but they’re fun.
Daredevil by Waid and Samnee HC 4 & 5: The whole San Francisco run. Not quite as strong as the early part of the run, but still excellent.
Prince of Cats: Romeo and Juliet updates are overdone, but this is a decent one.
The Fountain: Great art, and made me want to rewatch the movie to see what got changed (aside from far less nudity).
