What I’ve Been Reading

I’ve been meaning to do this for awhile. Here is what’s on my pull-list:

Angel & Faith / Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9: I love Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, both complete seasons we own and have watched multiple times. The comics are a little hit and miss, especially season 8 of Buffy and the Angel comics, but these new series are quite excellent. BtVS S9 is very back to basics, and Angel/Faith has them tooling around the UK and fighting together. If you loved the shows, these are must reads.

Animal Man (New 52): I love these comics. Dark, terrifying, and about animals! The fact that I’m reading this with Swamp Thing makes it even better.

Swamp Thing (New 52): I’ve started making my way through the Alan Moore Swamp Things as well, so it’s a little weird to jump back and forth, especially since the new series kinda reboots everything. However, the new 52 issues are well written, well drawn, and just as creepy as Animal man. Read both of these together, dagnabbit, especially since they crossover a bit.

Batwoman (New 52): While the writing and art/panels can be a little confusing sometimes (especially since I read the prequels to this AFTER - not recommended)(I also take clarity over beauty any time), it’s still one of the best superhero comics out there.

Wonder Woman (New 52): I’ve just started reading this one, and the fact that there’s very little to do for Wonder Woman in these shows that she’s just not a very interesting superhero. That being said, it’s got a very Sandman/American Gods feel to it, which I can’t say no to. It gets better with every issue (for instance, in the most recent issue, Diana just fought Poesidan - re-imagined as a huge scary kraken-like thing).

Ultimate Spiderman: Miles Morales is so great. A different, new take on the old, and it just makes me wish that the new Spiderman movie starred Donald Glover.

Avenging Spiderman: Much like jumping between Alan Moore and the New 52 of Swamp Thing, jumping between Ultimate Spiderman to the Avenging/Amazing Spiderman continuums are a little confusing. That being said, this comic is a lot of fun. I’m bummed that the artist is being switched out, but it’s still a great comic.

Daredevil: I’ve always wanted to read Daredevil, but never had a good starting point. Now I do, and it’s so damn fun. Lighthearted, well-crafted, and just a blast to read. The last crossover with Amazing Spiderman was very fun too - I always loved seeing Daredevil and Spiderman interact.

Venom: I don’t even know what continuum Venom takes place in, but it’s still a good read. The idea is that Flash Thompson has lost his legs in the Iraq war and is given the Symbiote to carry out missions in under 48 hours or it’ll bond to him permanently. It’s like Punisher meets Spiderman.

Wolverine and the X-Men: Wolverine breaks from the X-Men and opens a new school (Jean Grey’s School for the blah blah blah). It’s like First Class, with a bunch of new mutants. It also doesn’t take itself very seriously, which I like in a superhero comic.

Prophet: I love Brandon Graham. Read this.

RASL: I love Jeff Smith. Read this.

On January 1st 2012, I am permanently closing my online store. So if you’ve been eyeing any comics, prints, buttons, bundles, etc., now’s the time to get it.  If you aren’t familiar with my stuff, here’s a quick rundown of what you can find here.
Quail: An indie-folk, kung-fu musical comic. The bundles come with an album of produced music that syncs up with the comic “ROPE”, as well as a digital copy of the now out-of-print first issue “THE SONG OF BLACKBIRD EP”.
Eros Inc.: A Jewish girl is hired to be Cupid for her neighborhood. I have the first chapter from season three, as well as a bunch of prints, button sets and Valentine’s day cards.
Michael Jonathan is Jewish: My diary from a trip to Israel I took awhile back. There are currently three issues of this available.
Prints: There are a bunch of prints for fans of Fantastic Mr. Fox (Mr. Fox and Mr. Badger), Doctor Who, grammar (not Kelsey), Pokemon, and more.
If you guys wouldn’t mind spreading the word and checking the store out, I’d really appreciate it. Again, the deadline for orders is January first. Thanks everyone!

Because @joe_hunter asked so nicely, here is Jonathan Crane. His sections were my favorites in Arkham Asylum. I drew Poison Ivy yesterday, if you missed it.

I just finished Batman: Arkham Asylum (twice, actually, since my save got deleted when I was pretty close to the end). It was a blast, I love that rogue’s gallery. And that gallery was expertly handled - the Riddler challenges were the best part in my opinion. Here is a Poison Ivy to celebrate.
