East of Westworld

eastofwestsheriff

HBO’s latest Sci-Fi smash hit Westworld proves that the network continues to offer engrossing programs to watch, while also melding the tricky territory of science fiction and western genres. While the finale was light on actual payoff, season one was 10+ hours of free will vs programming, destiny vs determinism, right vs wrong; basically a decent primer for the Image series East of West by Johnathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta…  Continue reading East of Westworld

Indubitable Issues and Pull List (11/23/16)

LOOKING FOR BOOKS TO BUY THIS WEEK?  

LOOK NO FURTHER.  

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

 
Tyler’s Recommendation …
blackmondaymurders4Black Monday Murders #4
“The end of the first arc from Jonathan Hickman and Tomm Coker’s tale of finance, corruption, occult practices, and dark magic. I’m a huge Hickman fan, and this series has been a wicked delight. Coker’s gritty and gorgeous art combines so well with Hickman’s elaborate narrative web of conspiracy, murder, greed, and an evil battle for control of the world.”

This Weeks Finest Year Three

Power Man & Iron Fist 1 Theotis Jones(resize)As we’ve done in years past, I’ve decided to do a numerical analysis on our This Week’s Finest picks at Nothing But Comics for the sites third year. This writing will focus on the writers, artist and publishers who were selected for This Weeks Finest. That said, though it will be similar to the last two posts, there have been some changes to take note of. For the majority of the year, picking This Week’s Finest has been done by three different writers as opposed to years past where there where as many as seven of us picking books. Alex & Dean were still participating in This Week’s Finest at the beginning of the year so the numbers will be skewed a bit in terms of who chose what. Another change is our disclosure policy that we implemented shortly into the start of our third year. Nothing But Comics continues to grow and as such, more publishers are giving us comics for review. In the publisher section, I’ll address this further in the context of the section. Lastly, we all at Nothing But Comics have done a bad job in the past of crediting colorist and the work they did. We’ve made an effort to rectify that in the past year but initially, some of our This Week’s Finest posts still weren’t crediting colorist. As such, I won’t be covering it in this years post but plan on doing so for future postings. Now on to the data, where one publisher came back strong, a few creators made their This Weeks Finest debut’s on multiple occasions and one writer went from being honored zero times last time around to having tied for the most in year three.
