The Weekend Comics Chat Open Thread - The Quick! Melt Thirty Pounds of Butter! Edition


So, what was good this week?

I read ARMY @ LOVE (B+, very unsettling), LOVE AND ROCKETS (A, great as usual, still in my top 10 after all these years), and WORLD WAR III (B, man that Black Adam is completely nuts, isn't he?)... and now I have a huge stack of ALL THE FREE COMIC BOOK DAY COMICS TO READ! You guys have to wait until Saturday, May 5th, sorry!

What did you peruse this week?

This week I enjoyed Ex-Machina, as alway, the Flash has been getting better since Guggenheim took over, Might Avengers was fun mostly for the art, finally a decent issue of Ultimate X-men on Kirkman's mostly MEH run. DMZ always, always serves up compelling goodness, the ending of Girls was ok, the journey more appealing than the destination on this run. WWW III was so, so my biggest complaint being it could have been handled in a one shot. I liked Army @ Love although I may be jaded being a big Veitch fan. The Nightwing Annual was probably my favorite, frack I wish this team was on the regular title then maybe it would be I dont'n know umm ...good? Scalped is destined to be the next 100 Bullets in my opinion which rocks. Last of all, anybody who is missing "The Nightly News" (from Image) is missing out on one of the most compelling, creative books in sequential art today...check it out (the trade is in this upcoming Previews I believe)....see ya in Snowtown.

Yeah, EX MACHINA and DMZ are givens. I'll have to take another look at SCALPED, but NIGHTLY NEWS #1 gave me a headache and I LIKE that sort of thing... I'll give it another shot.

gotta be in the mood for "The Nightly News" it's not the "pick it up in any mood and read it sort of book", I love it but it's not for everyone.
