Indubitable Issues

LOOKING FOR BOOKS TO BUY THIS WEEK?  

LOOK NO FURTHER.  

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

 
Dean doesn’t want you to forget about…

I do not usually recommend a comic I know nothing about but that is because I have never come across a comic about Fugue state written by Ed Brisson.  “A man wakes in a field wearing nothing but his underwear. He’s got no idea who he is or how he got there. His only connection to the outside world is a cell phone that receives mysterious texts warning him of impending danger.” Does it get any better than that? I don’t remember…

The Week’s Finest: Quantum & Woody, The Goat #0

High expectations can be a double-edged sword. You can get all excited about something only to be severely disappointed. Or it’s not bad, just, well, not quite what you were hoping for. See you build it up so much in your mind that it would be near impossible for the final product to satisfy. (I suspect this was part of my problem with Nolan’s third Batman film). Of course, I shouldn’t be so dour. There are plenty of examples where expectations were met, if not surpassed. I am happy to report that this week delivered another of these positive outcomes Continue reading The Week’s Finest: Quantum & Woody, The Goat #0

Advanced Review: Quantum & Woody #8

Quantum & Woody #8 (Regular Fowler)Quantum & Woody #8 by James Asmus & Ming Doyle

“Well,” as half of another accident prone duo often put it, “here’s another fine mess you’ve gotten us into.” It all seemed pretty straight-forward at first. Eric Henderson (aka Quantum) was offered a plum assignment by his employer Magnum Security. The firm claimed to possess intel suggesting that a white-supremacist group was in possession of a dirty bomb. Eric was entrusted with infiltrating their stronghold (Stronghold, Montana to be precise) and dismantling the threat. Turns out, however, Eric (along with everyone in the compound) was being set up for a fall so that Magnum could sweet talk some inflated defense contracts out of the government. Also, things got a little awkward when the separatists discovered that their favorite superhero Quantum is black. Luckily, Eric’s brother, Woody was along to help out. Well, sort of. Regardless, the superpowered pair found themselves leading a bunch of ill-equipped, badly trained fanatics against vastly superior forces. {Insert Alamo joke here}.

Review of Quantum & Woody Must Die #1

QuantumAndWoodyMustDie1by James Asmus & Steve Lieber

So Superior Foes Of Spiderman has been out of commission for a couple months now, how badly do you miss it? Well I have a book to supplement your need, it’s been here all along in some form and it’s featuring the same artists as the aforementioned Superior Foes…. That’s right ya’ll, Quantum & Woody are back even though they must be killed or something but who cares because they are better then ever.  With writer James Asmus, Valiant’s different variations of the property has been one of the funniest and smartest comics on the shelf month in and month out and that’s because of it’s biting, insightful and straight up hilarious social satire mixed with crazy as fuck imagination. How crazy you ask? This crazy!!!! Artist Steve Lieber only enhances that with his mad cap illustration technique while carrying over the emoji style word baolloon to great effect. There’s the usual buddy comedy, Woody’s endearing cluelessness, The Wire jokes, race jokes, race jokes about The Wire, Vincent Van Goat and a Chew cameo of all things. Yeah that Chew. What else do I need to tell you; Superior Foes left a hole in your heart but Quantum & Woody has always been there to fill it for you. Go buy this book now and then buy all the ones that proceeded it.

Lasting Impressions: The Best Characters of 2013

Two days left in the year, and I have one last look back at 2013 for you. This week, I’m going to examine the most memorable characters of the past twelve months. After all, even if we try a book for the creator, it’s the characters which make us stick around. They are what engage us, pulling us deeper into their fictional worlds. So, in alphabetical order by character name, here are some of the best of 2013:
