What a busy week! We have some fun and great spoiler filled picks for you so let’s get to it!
KENNEL BLOCK BLUES #1 – Kulbir Mann
I was amazed when i opened the pages of this comic to find a prison story using humanoid cats and dogs. It wasnt just that but the fact that the main character has the most odd and unique coping strategy, singing happy songs and imagining the prisoners are singing with him. Of course the absurdity keeps it interesting but the twist at the end gives an almost terrifying edge to it!
THE VISION #4 – James Kaplan
This comic is smart, funny, shocking, sad and fearless, all in one issue. This continues to be the weirdest, most interesting book I’m reading from Marvel, and an amazing piece of storytelling. The way that Tom King and his creative collaborators use androids to tell a profoundly human story is remarkable. The art in this book is poignant and compelling and there’s even a great homage to a classic Charlie Brown bit. This is a book you should be reading.
About Me: James is a lawyer by day, and an avid reader of comics whenever he can. He loves his family, friends, and getting all of them into comics. He writes longer comics reviews at panelpatter.com and is on Twitter @sinisterjhk.
CODE PRU #2 – Pete Buser
Garth Ennis’ humor and horror is always a welcome combination. While Raulo Caceres’ luscious black and white art is the perfect fit for this story of monsters and elder gods. And sometimes you just need to have a chat with said elder god after you blast it with machine guns when it tries to escape its cell.
