Friday Comics Chat Open Thread - Chillin' with the fly guys edition!

Hello everyone! You know the drill... what did you read this week? Good? Bad? Indifferent? Tell us, tell us!

I've only had time to read one book so far this week, and I'm currently in the Coal Regions of Pa (with my books back in Central Pa), but that book was incredible! It was, of course, IC#6.

I don't want to spoil anything for anyone so I will say no more about the actual story. I will mention however that DC did a great job with the artistic side of the issue. Four pencillers on this one book and really nothing jars you out of the story when you turn the page. I did notice the switch to Jerry Ordway, but it wasn't drastic. All the artists are top-notch.

Same for Geoff Johns...what a ride he has taken us on. I can't wait to see how it all ends.

IC #6 was amazing. Top notch Art. Makes me wish this was 12 issues instead of 7. Jonah Hex was great. Nuns with Guns! AquaMan OYL......Well I really want to like this book. I love Aquaman and Kurt but This is sooo Boring IMO. Marvel Team Up was OK Not a Cable fan. And also The OMAC 1 shot was good not great but good.

Infinite Crisis definately is keeping my attention. However, I am gettin oa feeling that we will all be let down in the end with no real big ramifications and no significant changes to the DC status quo. Check out New Aveners: Illuminati...quite good.

Illuminati was great. Marvel Zombies....Great I didn't see that ending comming....MORE ZOMBIES! And Teen Titans was good.Seems to me that Robin is becoming more like BatMan.

oh yeah i almost forgot daredevil has been great since bendis for my tastes but with 82 and 83 brubaker has been doing things with paneling that i've never seen and again brubaker does this in the throw back 65th anniversery Captain AMerica hes great...bill if you haven't read the 65th anniversary issue do so now so says the wolfman i think you'd enjoy it

At 4/10/2006 10:54 AM, Blogger amoorefan2 said...

oh and i almost forgot if you like westerns Jonah hex is great
figure the other books i mentioned probably don't need too much sellin' so heres one if you like western expansion tales pick up a trade of this latest run when its available or the latest issue cause they're all self contained one issue stories that leave an Sergio Leone impression on me

DESOLATION JONES is currently in my Top 25 Best Comic Books Of All Time List... and it's only -what?- four issues in? Each issue so far has been just plain great...
