New Releases and Recommendations

Greg McElhatton is back to school us all on indy comics again this week. I will stick up for the lowly superheroes. It’s an easy task this week on both sides, with solid choices all around. Let the games begin!

Here’s what I’m checking out for sure:

Booster Gold #2BOOSTER GOLD #2
Oh, man. The first issue of BOOSTER GOLD was so good. Jam-packed with story, full of time-traveling and replete with self-deprecation, BOOSTER GOLD kicks ass. Well, the first issue did, at least. I’ve got faith. You can do it, BOOSTER GOLD!

New Avengers #34

NEW AVENGERS #34
Who can the New Avengers trust? Who’s a Skrull? Is it Luke Cage? Is it Spider-Man? Is it you?! I’m assuming it’s not you. Seriously, as long as it’s not Iron Man. That would not be cool.

Spidey Fairy Tales #4

SPIDER-MAN FAIRY TALES #4
This is all about Spider-Man with a sword drawn by Nick Dragotta and Mike Allred. My Spider-Man/Madman nerdiness allows for that to be enough. Is it enough for you? If you are me, the answer to that question is yes.

My brevity is a show of confidence in the fantastic selection of superhero books this week. Let’s see what McElhatton has up the sleeve of his Pac-Man shirt:

Age of Bronze #26AGE OF BRONZE #26

In a perfect world, when people are going to teach people the story of the Iliad (aka the Trojan War), they’ll just hand people copies of Eric Shanower’s Age of Bronze. Shanower isn’t afraid to show this story in all its glory, with backstabbing, deceit, massacres, treachery, sex, love, lust, tactics, armies, and everything else you can possibly think of. People who think of the Trojan War as a sterile, boring story have no idea just what they’re missing. Add in that Shanower’s art is nothing short of exquisite (it’s netted him several Eisner nominations and awards) and, well, this is probably the best book that you’re not reading.

Maintenance #5MAINTENANCE #5

Remember that old movie Fantastic Voyage where they shrink scientists and put them inside a person to save that guy’s life? Well, in Jim Massey and Robbi Rodriguez’s Maintenance, the sage of two janitors working for an evil mastermind think-tank, our two hapless heroes get shrunken and put into one of the scientists because he’s having some… um… plumbing issues. Yeah, that kind of plumbing. The kind that could’ve been solved with more fiber. Poop jokes and evil geniuses, what more can you ask for?

What more can I ask for?! Click “more” and find out!
