Apparently the area has dodged quite a bullet... things could have been a LOT worse than they turned out to be.  Some of those pictures of NYC and the Jersey Shore look terrifying!  All good thoughts go out to anyone who has suffered injury or damage due to Hurricane Sandy!

Anyway, YES, WE ARE OPEN AT BOTH COMIX CONNECTION LOCATIONS, so come on in!

We hope all of our friends and customers made it through the storm with minimal damage!

Counter Monkey Review - Superman #13 by: Jesse "the 'hawk" Arnold

WARNING:  May contain mild spoilers and will contain personal opinions.  (The views and opinions expressed in this review are solely of the individual(s) and are not the views of COMIX CONNECTION, its parent, affiliate, or subsidiary companies.)  I've checked, they don't have any of those.  Unless by "parent" you're referring to Bill.  Which he is.  But not to us.The IDEA
Superman is basically E.T.  Only he looks like a human, and gets powers in our sun.  Also, he was sent here by his 'rents to spare him dying on their soon to be expired home world.  Okay, so it is nothing like E.T. save the fact that neither titular character comes from this oblate-spheroid-ish place we call Earth.

Writer: Scott LobdellWhatever you may think about the guy, I really liked this issue.  I've never really been a fan of Superman comics.  And frankly, to continue with my honest streak, I picked it up for the art.  That said, I am a fan of the concept of Superman.  The only sequential issues of Supes I've ever read was the Azzarello/Lee arc For Tomorrow.  Which, having just recently reread it, still confuses the ever-loving-snot out of me.  So, thanks to the art of Kenneth Rocafort, I've now picked up #0 and #13 and added the book to my subscriptions."

What am I supposed to be going on about here?  Oh right, Lobdell.  Let me say, that I nearly jumped off my seat when I saw Clark's tirade about the power of journalism to Morgan Edge, ending with;
I am not the only one who believes in the power of the press - the fact that we need to stand up for the truth.  For justice.  And yeah - I'm not ashamed to say - the American way!
That got me stoked.  Now, I'm not a flag waving crazy person.  But when I did read Action Comics #1 last year and saw Lois say, "Truth, Justice, and the way," I was really bummed.  I get why, and what they were going for...but this whole self-loathing American attitude in American publications has got to stop.  Truth, Justice, and the American Way is, as far as I'm concerned, as much a part of Superman as the blue, red, and yellow of his costume.  True he's a larger than life character, and he is more than American, it was nice to see it back.  As well as his pining for Lois.

So, thanks Mr. Lobdell (not sarcastic) for bringing that back to this book.  I'm invested in this story, beyond those lines, and really interested to see where this goes.  I really liked Kara's (been hooked on her book since the New 52 relaunch) appearance and what she tells Clark about the beast he is fighting.  This crossover H'el on Earth, looks to be quite interesting.  Plus, Clark randomly winds up in Ireland.  Something this...child of Irish heritage...always McEnjoys!


PENCILS:  Kenneth Rocafort
His pencils were what made Red Hood and the Outlaws a book I looked forward to every month.  Sad to see him leave that book, as I had started to enjoy the characters.  But, my budget is limited.  So, I'm here with Superman.  I love the non-inked pencils with color style.  Or if he does ink, it's a loose and rough style.  I like that he's working in a bit of the personality of Henry Cavil into his depiction of Clark/Supes, and that he's not sticking with the overly product filled hair of Superman.  Cause seriously, there ain't enough hair gel, spray, paste or glue to keep those raven locks curled and coiffed when flying as fast, or fighting as hard as Superman does.

Since that's why I read comics.  Realism in physics.

I also really enjoy the flow of action and the way Rocafort breaks up the page and panels.  Well done sirs.  Well done.


RESULTS:  4 out of 5   Priest Collared Kryptonian Suits   You know that's what it looks like.

I'd say this book is super, but that'd be kind of redundant and/or pretentious.  So let's go with freaking awesome.

WELP, THAT DIDN'T LAST LONG


OK everyone, it looks like we're gonna be closing today.  The West Manchester Mall is shutting down now and we're sending poor Nicky in Mechanicsburg home as well!   We'll see how it goes for tomorrow, but my kids' school just announced that they're closing tomorrow too!  Keep your eyes peeled and your basement dry!


 
CALL BEFORE COMING IN!

Labels: , ,

YES, WE'RE OPEN... for now!

12:01PM MONDAY -->>ATTENTION! PLEASE DISREGARD THIS POST... WE'RE CLOSING FOR THE DAY, FOLKS! SEE NEXT POST! 


YES, both Comix Connection locations will open at the normal 10AM time... but we're not certain we'll stay open all day.  Just in case you live at the bottom of a mineshaft, there's a hurricane improbably named "SANDY" stomping around the East Coast who is dumping rain all over us and will continue to be a nuisance for at least a day or two.  Winds and rain may increase to ridiculous levels, thus causing us to possibly close early.  If you're coming in today (and why not?... comic books are entertainment that requires no electricity to enjoy) you may want to call ahead to be certain we're still open, especially if conditions worsen.  See you soon?


(I still can't believe FEMA doesn't recommend stocking up on comic books at times like this.  In addition to their entertainment value, comic books are also great tinder for starting fires and can also be used as toilet paper.  You probably could use them to staunch bleeding from wounds suffered during the Looting Phase too! Win/win!)

Counter Monkey Chris steps up to the plate with BATMAN!

So you want to get into Batman~

After the success of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy interest in the franchise have grown; we've had several people come into the store asking where they should start reading DC's standout detective.  Bats is my favorite in the current DC library so I thought it would be a great topic to write my first post on.


Method One: The Beginning
Batman Year One is an origin tale and served as inspiration for Batman Begins- but it's not just the same tale of a robbery gone wrote rehashed.  Year One is largely told from the perspective of Lieutenant Jim Gordon and focuses just as much on the corruption that has been rotting Gotham's political system, including the police force, as it does Bruce's development into the hero he becomes.  An important thing to note is the primary antagonist in this series is Gotham's mob, not characters like Penguin and the Joke- as Batman's more colorful rogues gallery has yet to form.

Batman Year One is IGN.com's #1 Batman story of all time and story is great for someone who wants to start at the very beginning as well as anyone that enjoys a gritty noire-style tale.  


Method Two: Current Continuity
About a year ago DC launched it's New 52 wave of comics with the intention of providing an excellent jumping on point for the majority of their series- including Batman.  While it's definitely possible to dive in to the newest story line (which is Death of the Family- featuring the return of the Joker after nearly a year's absence); if you're willing to backtrack to the beginning of Grant Morrison's run few questions will go unanswered- and it's truly fantastic.

My recommended jumping-on point is Batman and Son; it introduces the newest Robin- Damion Wayne and begins to plant the seeds that culminate in DC's FINAL CRISIS event.  Without a doubt, Batman and Son is the best place to start to get fully caught up.  


Skipping ahead though, if you'd like to avoid picking up a few trades, starting with Batman: The Black Glove, then, FINAL CRISIS and going directly into Batman & Robin REBORN- you'll have all of the most vital details necessary to enjoy the fullest of Grant Morrison's work and you can always ask the counter-monkeys any lingering questions you might have about what you skipped.


Method Three: Just the High Points
Not everyone wants to dive into the full commitment of multiple issues on a regular basis.  Some people just want a single book or two to read over and to serve as a "best of" anthology.  There are several stand-out stories you can choose from, but my personal favorite is The Long Halloween.  It features nearly all of Batman's better known villains as Batman tries to uncover the identity of a serial killer.  The art stands out, the plot features both action and some actual detective work, and in all ties together for one of the best conclusions in a single trade paperback.

So there you have it- three methods to better your holidays and all of which are 20% off Saturday and Sunday (October 27th and 28th) during our huge Halloween Extravaganza!

Review #15, Mushi Mushi Wolverine Desu


A Cody-Kenobi Review:
WARNING: Spoilers May Ensue

Bland Point By Point Summery:

Wolverine doesn't disappoint in Wolverine Max #1, not in the slightest. The comic opens up to a plane crash, that leaves Logan without legs. He's then picked up by a (fishing?) boat and flown to a hospital. He escapes the hospital, and his picture is put up on TV. He checks into a hotel, and the clerk recognizes him. A can of whoop is just about opened, the comic ends.

My Thoughts:


The comic I thought was well done. The cover really gives some foreshadowing for the setting about to come, and the contents give you some views on Logan's past that I personally didn't know much about. The art work is interesting, as it normal comic work, and during flashbacks, turns very gritty and reminds you of old Japanese artwork. Perhaps that's the reason for it, huh? The dialogue is something that should be expected from Logan, as I believe almost one of the first words is the F-word. Also, there is some small blood and gore, nothing over the top. I wouldn't say the comic grabs you in, and shoves your face in the story, but it has a good chance to do that. It's a #1, so eventually it will me thinks. I liked it,  I liked it enough to want to know more about Logan, and his past. I think its worth the read.

WARNING: This Comic Does Contain Adult Material, Reader Discretion Advised

My Rating: 4 outa' 5

Noir- An Under-Appreciated Genre Part 6


As with ECHOES, the noir genre can find itself mingling with other genres. One of comicdom's truly under-appreciated noir series is POWERS, a crime-noir series written by Brian Michael Bendis with the art styling of Michael Avon Oeming. The series focuses on two detectives: Christian Walker, a former costumed vigilante who has lost his powers, and Deena Pilgrim, his partner. The two are part of the Powers unit for their precinct and specialize in crimes that involve super powered individuals. Along the way, the reader discovers that even people who work very closely together can manage to hide secrets from one another.


The story begins with Detective Walker rescuing a young girl named Calista from a convict wearing a jet pack. As he arrives back at the station, he is introduced to his new partner, Deena Pilgrim. A short time later, they must solve the murder of the world's most beloved hero, Retro Girl. Pilgrim soon learns of Walker's past as a vigilante and how he eventually found himself depowered. The investigation introduces the reader to many of the characters that will remain important throughout the series in one way or another. The truth behind the murder of Retro Girl only leads to more questions than answers, and this becomes a common theme as the series goes along.

Finding themselves to be the only ones truly competent enough to tackle super powered crimes, Pilgrim and Walker throw themselves into case after case, usually closing them but with tragic endings for those involved. Walker's true origins make themselves known in a story called "Forever", and readers learn just how it is that Walker, or someone who looks exactly like him, has appeared in different eras throughout history.



The cases the two detectives handle weigh heavily not only on them but everyone close to them. It makes for a very entertaining read when each character has secrets just waiting to be revealed. I don't want to delve too much into the details, at least anymore than I already have. POWERS is a very dark series at times, but it can be a fun read. I think it's worth a look.




POWERS is available as 13 trade paperback collected editions, five oversized hardcover collected editions, or in the single issue format. It is to be relaunched with a new # 1 in November as POWERS: BUREAU.
Until next week, keep your powers in your pants and on the right side of the law.

Review #14: Trick or Treat!

A Cody-Kenobi Review:


You have no idea how upset I am that this is a one shot issue. I've read Marvel Zombies Halloween, and I loved every second of it. The very first panel is a TOOOM right through a zombies head. I almost thought that I may have been reading The Walking Dead at first! The art work is great, and has that gritty feel when need be. The action is suspenseful, and the dialogue actually made me laugh (which doesn't happen to often). Is Squirell Girl an actual thing? That in general is comical, see what I did there? Comic-al...well anyway, this was a fantastic read, but I wanted more!! Nothing says Halloween like zombies, and nothing says Halloween for me then superhero zombies! In the words of Oliver, "please sir, could I have some more?"

My Rating: 5 outa' 5


Till next week, this is Cody-Kenobi and BOOM headshot!

Review #13: Agents of the Empire indeed...

A Cody-Kenobi Review:


If you, the reader, have followed any reviews I've done, you may have noticed I'm much more harsh on Star Wars based comics. I've read Star Wars Agent of the Empire this week, and I'm quite satisfied! Lets start with the cover, it reminds me almost of like a movie poster, which isn't a bad thing. It opens up, the first panels include Boba Fett, how could you not read it after that? The art work is just a tad too cartoony for my taste, but in its defense, it's done really really well--it seems polished and clean. The dialogue is what can be expected from an "agent of the empire" and everything else seems to fall in place. I'm new to the Agent of the Empire series, so some things may not be clear, but I found it to be a good read none the less. The action is great, dialogue is great, this comic was great. It did though, lack the hook that leaves me craving for the next issue, but I'm sure it will pick up in time. Oh yeah, theirs another Count Dooku?

My Rating: 3.5 outa' 5
