I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it here before, but I work in a comic shop. On Tuesdays, we get the new comics for the week with the perk of getting to read (some of) them before they go out for sale on Wednesday.
So far* I’ve made my way through:
- Archie #4 – #lipstickincident revealed, finally! Annie Wu took over Fiona Staples for the art. And I am here.for.it.
- Jughead #2 – Still not sure how I feel about it as a book. But Jughead is my #1 comics crush.
- All-New Wolverine #2 – Laura Kinney meets Orphan Black? Maybe?
- Carnage #2 – Here for it until then end and then uhh.
- Ringside #1 – “For example, I’ve never watched a Texas high school football game but I loved Friday Night Lights.” Okay, definitely not FNL. That quote is from the writer, but it’s true. All I know about wrestling I know from Boy Meets World.
- Hellboy & The B.P.R.D. 1953 – I picked this up just cause Itty Bitty Hellboy came out and looked adorable and I never read any Hellboy before. Why haven’t I read any Hellboy before???
- Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #1 – Lunella’s got some Inhuman genes in her and she winds up pairing up with Devil Dinosaur. Which is totally a thing (I can’t with the Marvel footnoting “reference this” when it’s not incredibly tongue in cheek.) That said, this is pretty cute.
- Silk #1 – Has Cindy Moon turned bad? Honestly I only know the touchstones of her story. Definitely going to snag Silk vol. 0.
Now, to power my way though the last 8 of the books. Definitely not going to be able to finish up reading Didion’s The Year of Magical Thinking tonight.
*I will possibly updating with initial thoughts as the evening progresses.
