Barring unforeseen baseball games, camping trips, concerts, and other such distractions I plan on reading A LOT of comic books in the next few weeks!
Magic, and dragons, and princesses. The story is pretty dumb, but the art is just pretty. Apparently this comic series has won awards, so maybe I just read the wrong part of the series. As it is, this one is quite silly.
A godlike boy descends to the world of mortals to do battle with monsters. The story's rather uncomplicated, but I think the author might be building up to something good. The art is very quirky - in a good way.
Captain America: Two Americas
Following the conclusion of Civil War, Bucky takes over as Captain America while Steve Rogers recovers from his "death" at the hands of the Red Skull. Shortly thereafter Steve's doppelganger resurfaces in Idaho, at the head of a group of survivalists/insurgents. It's a great comic - well drawn and well written.
Batman: Through the Looking Glass
A retelling of "Through the Looking Glass" (Alice in Wonderland) via Batman. The Mad Hatter slips Bruce Wayne some 'shrooms at a dinner party, and the result is a surreal trip through Gotham's sewer system. This one is pretty good.
Brightest Day - Birds of Prey: End Run
Not really sure what the purpose of this comic was. For guys to stroke themselves over? For people to read? Despite writer Gail Simone being (gasp) a woman, the female characters in this comic book are incomprehensible. They cry and have "girl feelings," but their emotional displays are either out of context or out of character.
The Brave and the Bold - The Lords of Luck
A well-written comic by Mark Waid and George Perez. Every time I see Perez's art I instantly feel about eight years old. The dialogue is snappy and it's well plotted. Sure, some of the time travel elements make no sense, but then again they rarely do.
