It’s been a great week of comics and we have some great spoiler filled picks for you this week. No more fanfare, let’s get to it!
GIANT DAYS #14– James Kaplan
Are you reading Giant Days? If not, you’re really missing out. If you’re looking for a change of pace from overwrought superhero comics, high-concept sci-fi, or zombie books, the Eisner-nominated Giant Days is the perfect palate cleanser. It is a hilarious, heartfelt story about three women in their first year at university in England. This entire issue is dedicated to the search for off-campus housing for their second year of university, and is full of all sorts of ridiculous, fun situations. This is a book with a lot of heart and wit, and the art (initially from Lissa Tremain, now from Max Sarin) has been consistently terrific since the beginning. It’s an excellent read.
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.
MOON KNIGHT #2 – Tom Barnett
Lemire, Smallwood and Bellaire are crushing it on Moon Knight.
This panel is so cool! It’s go time! I love the contrast of Moon Knight against the fantastic colors and the dilapidated feel of the background.
About Me: I’m Tom. Slightly addicted to comics, Doctor Who, Star Wars and Star Trek. I also try to spend some time behind the lens of my camera. Love Bronze Age comics and the Black Hole movie from Disney. Follow me @tphoto10
WEAVERS #1 – Kulbir Mann
This is kind of what you would expect from Si Spurrier but it is not overly wordy or conceptual, and it is interesting to see how he approaches a simple but effective premise. Its scary in its art and the powers available to these drug dealers is truly horrific. Fantastic work.
BEASTS OF BURDEN: WHAT THE CAT DRAGGED IN #1 – Aaron Meyers
This creative team works so well together. Its comics magic.
