Current Comics Report for 6/8

This is a report about what I think about the comics of this week, based upon Diamond's Shipping This Week list, as reprinted below, with my (sometimes quite snarky, so be forewarned) comments.

Certain sections of the Current Report on the 6/8 Comic Book Week contain forward-looking statements that are based on my expectations, estimates, projections and assumptions. Words such as “expect,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “believe,” “estimate” and variations of these words and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, which include but are not limited to projections of books being good, writing performance, character flaws, artistic coolness and continued title stability.

Forward-looking statements are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Prognasticators Reform Act of 1995, as amended. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks and uncertainties, which are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual future results and trends may differ materially from what is forecast in forward-looking statements due to a variety of factors, including, without limitation:
  • A book being better than I thought it would be;

  • A different creative team on a book;

  • A different type of story than I thought it was;

  • Differences in anticipated and actual performance by the writer and/or artist
All forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this report or, in the case of any document incorporated by reference, the date of that document.All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to me are qualified by the cautionary statements in this section..

Shipping This Week: June 8, 2005

DARK HORSE

APR050037 BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL #102 (MR) $2.99

Sorta cut down on what I can talk about when you only come out with ONE item, Dark Horse! What gives?!?!?!

DC COMICS

APR050320 ACTION COMICS #828 $2.50

Sadly, this was Byrne's last shot at the cover, it seems, which is too bad.

In any event, I estimate that this will be another strong issue by the team of Simone, Byrne and Nelson.

MAR050359 BATMAN BEGINS 13 IN CHRISTIAN BALE AS BATMAN DLX FIG $89.99

So, 90 bucks...must be SOME helluva figure, right?

Well...take a look...

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

What the heck, DC?!?!?!

90 bucks for THAT!?!?

Listen to the description - "This 13 inch figure includes an authentic movie costume, alternate set of hands, grappling gun, batarangs, a stand to display the figure and a full-color Certificate of Authenticity. Packaged in a deluxe 4-color window box with a 5th panel."

A Certificate of Authenticity?!!?

That is an authentic toy?!?!

Bah, I say!

BAH!
MAR050362 BATMAN BEGINS CILLIAN MURPHY SCARECROW MINI STATUE $29.99

Makes this sound downright reasonable.

DEC040342 BATMAN BLACK WHITE SERIES MINI STATUE BISLEY $45.00

What an odd choice to make a statue based on.

APR050311 BATMAN DARK DETECTIVE #3 (OF 6) $2.99
APR050304 BATMAN LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT #192 $2.50

Seth Fisher art!! Seth Fisher art! I believe this will be cool looking!

APR050360 BATMAN STRIKES #10 $2.25
APR050330 BREACH #6 $2.50

I am sorry, Mr. Bob Harras, I apologize for mocking Breach. It is not as bad as I sometimes joke it is. Not my cuppa (besides the awesome art), but I can see why some people might dig it.

APR050404 FABLES #38 (MR) $2.75

I believe that this issue will ROCK!

APR050309 GOTHAM CENTRAL #32 $2.50

I believe that this will be a strong issue by Rucka, but it sorta irks me that they plan on giving away that it is about Poison Ivy on the cover, as I do not believe it is the case INSIDE the book that it is obvious.

APR050336 GREEN ARROW #51 $2.50

Wow...a milestone! As far as I know, this will be the first Anarchy story NOT written by Alan Grant.

Trippy!

APR050343 JLA #115 $2.50

I estimate that this will be lame.

APR050342 JUSTICE LEAGUE ELITE #12 (OF 12) $2.50

I was pleased with some of the resolutions in #11 (particularly the Coldcast revelation), and I am very hopeful that this will be a great final resolution.

APR050321 LEX LUTHOR MAN OF STEEL #4 (OF 5) $2.99

In all seriousness, would ANYone have had a problem is Azz had just made this series his Superman run?

ANYone?

APR050370 MAD XL #34 $4.99
APR050397 MAJESTIC #6 $2.99

Abnett and Lanning did such a good job on the first mini-series, but I have no idea where they're going with the ongoing...I just now that I do not enjoy it.

APR050376 MONSTER COLLECTION VOL 2 (MR) $9.99

Could a fan of this title please explain the appeal to me? Thanks.

APR050316 NIGHTWING #109 $2.50

Yeah, let's get Nightwing involved in the crossovers now! Seriously, how ridiculous is it to undercut Grayson like this? Like her or dislike her, you gotta give her a chance to tell her story without having to tie into the crossover du jour.

APR050356 RANN THANAGAR WAR #2 (OF 6) $2.50

PLEASE GIBBONS!

PLEASE make this good!

I was expecting so much from you on this series, please don't let me down!

APR050401 TOM STRONG #33 $2.99
MAR058204 VILLAINS UNITED #1 THIRD PTG $2.50

IMAGE

APR051669 AGE OF BRONZE #20 $3.50

New storyline, people! Good time to try the book out!

APR051664 AGE OF BRONZE VOL 2 SACRIFICE TP $19.95

Volume 1 is unavailable from Diamond!! What gives?!?

APR051719 CITY OF HEROES #2 $2.99

I estimate that this issue will be an improvement over the first.

MAR051673 EARTHBOY JACOBOUS GN $17.95

This could possibly be the trippiest comic ever. In fact, I estimate that it WILL be one of the trippiest comics ever.

A flying whale?

Insect monsters trying to kill a boy because of a virus on his hand?

What is this, the Filth??!?!

APR051659 FLAK RIOT #1 $2.95

Seriously, whose idea was it to call this book Flak Riot? It seems like a fun book, but such a terrible name.

FEB051577 GRAY AREA VOL 1 ALL OF THIS CAN BE YOURS TP $14.95
JAN051608 NEGATIVE BURN WINTER 2005 $9.95

Super sweet.

MAR051683 STARDUST KID #1 (OF 5) $3.50

So...is this just basically Abadazad? Nothing wrong with that...just asking.

APR051662 STRANGE GIRL #1 $2.95
APR051720 TENTH DARKK DAWN ONE SHOT $4.99

If I bet you ten bucks three years ago that the Tenth would still be coming out, would you have taken the bet?

APR051717 TOP COW TRIPLE PLAY $0.99

I think this is a good idea, if only for the Seth Green comic book. People should dig that.

MARVEL

APR051893 DISTRICT X #14 $2.99

I thought last issue was a nice change of pace (as Bishop's partner was just getting tooo depresssing), except it ALSO had to go with a depressing ending. Not a lot of happy in District X.

APR051949 FANTASTIC FOUR VISIONARIES GEORGE PEREZ VOL 1 TP $19.99

Rarely have I seen a less appropriate title for a trade. Don't get me wrong, I'm pleased to see these issues collected, as they were good...but Perez on FF as visionary?!?!

On what planet is this!?!?

APR051870 GRAVITY #1 (OF 5) $2.99

Hopefully this issue will be as much fun as Sean McKeever hyping it is.

APR051878 LAST HERO STANDING #2 (OF 5) $2.99

For those who have been DYING to see Lyja the Skrull in a comic again!

APR051969 MARVEL 1602 TP $19.99

This comic reads a lot better in trade format.

APR051887 MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #15 $2.99
APR051916 MARVEL NEMESIS IMPERFECTS #2 (OF 6) $2.99

They really do give Pak the weirdest assignments.

APR051883 MARY JANE HOMECOMING #4 (OF 4) $2.99

I predict that this issue will be another fun, genial, character-based story.

APR051907 NEW THUNDERBOLTS #9 $2.99

When will we find out that I am right about Swordsman's ID?!!?

APR051909 NEW WARRIORS #1 (OF 6) $2.99
MAR051902 PULSE #9 $2.99

When will the first Pulse issue come out that is NOT tied to another storyline in another title?

APR051943 PUNISHER #22 (MR) $2.99
APR051885 TOXIN #3 (OF 6) $2.99

Could Milligan POSSIBLY write THREE good issue about the spawn of the spawn of Venom?

MAR051875 ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR #19 $2.25

Mike Carey, right? I predict a good issue.

APR051951 ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR VOL 1 HC $29.99

THIS is what hardcovers are for!

APR051952 ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR VOL 3 N-ZONE TP $12.99
APR051872 ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #78 $2.50
APR051932 X-MEN #171 $2.50

Here you go, Milligan, your first arc fell a bit flat, let's see some redemption!

APR051962 X-MEN FANTASTIC FOUR HC $19.99

This is NOT what hardcovers are for!

APR051941 X-MEN THE END HEROES AND MARTYRS #4 (OF 6) $2.99

WIZARD

APR052476 TOYFARE FANTASTIC FOUR MOVIE TOYS CVR #96 $4.99

I estimate that this will be a fun read, like most Toyfares are. A very underrated mag, in my book.

APR052481 ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN ACE EDITION #1 PI
APR052488 WANTED WIZARD ACE ED SGN #1 (O/A) PI

Wait, people DON'T want a special reprint edition of a book from last year? Seems hard to believe.

COMICS

MAR052960 A G SUPER EROTIC ANTHOLOGY #14 (A) $4.99

See, now THIS is the way to buy comic book porn! Anthologies!!

APR052879 ACTION PHILOSOPHERS ALL SEX SPECIAL $2.95

I thought that this came out already? In any event, as it is Action Philosophers, it will kick butt.

JAN052381 ACTOR DARKNESS PRELUDE FOIL CVR ED $5.00

Support ACTOR! Just maybe pick a better book than this to support it with.

JAN052452 AP HOW TO DRAW CHIBI SUPER DEFORMED TECHNIQUES TP $19.95

MAR052602 BETTY & VERONICA DIGEST #157 $2.39
APR053030 BIRTHDAY RIOTS HC (MR) PI

This is a really good comic. I just don't like the whole "Please Inquire" thing.

APR053058 CAVALCADE OF BOYS VOL 1 TP (MR) $14.00

I estimate this will be just about the best gay romance comic released this week.

FEB052968 CISCO KID GUNFIRE & BRIMSTONE #1 (MR) $2.95
MAR052975 CLIVE BARKERS THIEF OF ALWAYS VOL 3 TP $7.49

Anyone reading this? Sounds like a cool idea, although Aguirre-Sacasa did a similar story in Marvel Knights 4 recently (Someone stealing time).

APR053028 CONFESSIONS OF A CEREAL EATER GN (O/A) PI
APR053029 CONFESSIONS OF A CEREAL EATER VOL 2 GN (O/A) PI

APR053038 MIRACLEMAN #18 SIGNED ED $12.95
APR053039 MIRACLEMAN #23 PLATINUM ARCHIVE SIGNED ED $99.95

Whoever would have thought that 6 issues and the difference between platinum and ruby red would be over 150 dollars? I mean, they didn't use ACTUAL rubies, did they?!?!

APR053040 MIRACLEMAN APOCRYPHA #1-3 SET $29.95
JAN052752 MODERN ARF GN $19.95
MAR053099 NICK LANDIME VS THE WORLD CRIME LEAGUE #1 $2.99

Congrats to Mr. Breitweiser on his new job at Marvel! He deserves the work.

MAR053319 SENSUAL PHRASE VOL 8 TP (MR) $9.99
APR052900 SEX WARRIOR ISANE XXX #5 (A) $3.95

Snap out of it, Sex Warrior! You're not making any sense! Isane?!!? What does that MEAN!?!?

MAR053238 SHONEN JUMP JULY 2005 VOL 3 #7 $4.99

Shonen Jump is a really good deal. You would be well advised to give it a shot. Only five bucks!

MAR052963 SILENT HILL THE GRINNING MAN $7.49

If toys and video games were considered off limits, I think comic production would be decreased by a 1/3.

FEB052820 STRAY BULLETS #38 (MR) $3.50

THIS is where Lapham belongs, not Gotham!

MAR052892 SUPERNATURAL LAW #1 $2.95
MAR052707 TAROT WITCH OF THE BLACK ROSE DLX ED #32 (MR) $19.99

This book and Jim Balent sooo deserve each other.

FEB053003 TEMPORARY CUBES AND LADDERS #1 (O/A) $3.95

This is the kind of comic that we should just be so happy that actually gets made. Damon Hurd is a unique voice, and it is used to such great extent on creator-owned books like this.

APR053054 TEMPORARY THE REAL ME PART 2 #3 $2.95
MAR052976 UNAUTHORIZED PUFFED MOVIE ADAPTATION TP $16.99
MAR052712 VIC & BLOOD TP (STAR18902) (MR) PI

Re:

"...but Perez on FF as visionary?!?!"

Yeah. It looks like Marvel Marketing couldn't come up with a more appropriate badge than the existing "Visionaries" one. Any suggestions? "Competents" just doesn't have the same ring to it. Regardless of marketing, I think this book is a good thing, Marvel has been mining their back catalogue quite well lately. I don't give a rip for FF or Perez, but a lot of people do.


"This is a really good comic. I just don't like the whole "Please Inquire" thing."

Nothing to worry about, the "PI" in this case just means NBM's backstock is being sold at a discount to retailers, so the customer price could potentially be lower than cover price. Depends on the retailer.

That said, BIRTHDAY RIOTS RUBY RED PLATINUM CHRISTIAN BALE VISIONARY COVER is way out of your price range.

And I agree, Birthday Riots is a GOOD COMIC, just read it last week in fact.

I got the first issue of Thief of Always, and it was decent, but $7.50 - man, that's a lot of money. Not worth it, unfortunately.

Did you read the description blurb of "Stardust Kid"?

It has the same creative team as "Abadazad", but it's a very different project. And before you say "But it's the same creators doing a fantasy comic!" keep in mind that they're already under contract to finish Abadazad for Hyperion/Disney.

chasdom,

Marvel's line of trade paperbacks really do make for some great unintentional comedy.

Like, for instance, their "Legends" line, where if you were to look for Vol. 1 of the Hulk "Legends," guess what you would get?

Some Stan Lee?

Some Roger Stern?

Some Peter David?

Some John Byrne (first run)?

Nope...Hulk/Wolverine by Sam Kieth.

Yikes.

His first GN, Creature Tech has some Morrison like qualities, in the sense that it throws out a lot of wild sci-fi ideas very quickly. That, and I adored it. His last GN, Tommysaurus Rex, I didn't like as much, but it was nomintaed for an Eisner, so at least he's getting noticed. I'm looking forward to this one, since it sounds more like CT.

Also:

"If I bet you ten bucks three years ago that the Tenth would still be coming out, would you have taken the bet?"

Yes. But I would have planned to welch if it didn't. But seriously, if Witchblade, Fathom, and Lady Death can stay in print, then it stands to reason that Tenth could stick around too.

"APR050376 MONSTER COLLECTION VOL 2 (MR) $9.99

Could a fan of this title please explain the appeal to me? Thanks."

I'm not a fan, but doing some Googling, it looks to me like it's a grim and gritty Pokemon. Yeah, that sounds about right.

"ACTION COMICS #828 $2.50

Sadly, this was Byrne's last shot at the cover, it seems, which is too bad.

In any event, I estimate that this will be another strong issue by the team of Simone, Byrne and Nelson."

I haven't picked up the first issue yet. Given how dull I found Man of Steel, I'm leary, but I still find Gail and Byrne an interesting pairing, more for their seeming incompatibility.

"When will we find out that I am right about Swordsman's ID?!!?"

Hopefully soon, so they'll finally end all of that tension and suspense we're enduring.
And, to horn in on your territory:

"APR053040 MIRACLEMAN APOCRYPHA #1-3 SET $29.95"

This is a good series, but know two things if you're thinking of buying it (if you can find it; I have never seen any Miracleman comics being sold with the other new arrivals); it's not the Moore or Gaiman (although Gaiman does do the framing stories) issues no one can shut up about, but an anthology. Kurt Busiek and Matt Wagner both did stories. James Robinson also did a really nasty one. As in, it had a rape scene. Also, it's really not worth $30. I found it on E-Bay for less than $10.

GREEN ARROW #51

Wow...a milestone! As far as I know, this will be the first Anarchy story NOT written by Alan Grant.


Close, but no cigar. Chuck Dixon wrote Anarky in the Eclipso-event Robin Annual.

And if you want to count it, Kelley Puckett wrote an animated Anarky story in Batman Adventures #31.

Re: "The Stardust Kid"

The solicitation doesn't mention anything about a little kid waking up in a fantasyland, so I'm not sure why you're dead-set convinced that it's a "cloned project".

"Stardust Kid" is about a primal magic force that transforms ordinary people into ooey gooey Slime Monsters, and a band of misfits who are trying to find a way to survive the dangerous changes. According to the solicitation.

That doesn't sound all that similar to "Girl finds out her brother was kidnapped into their favorite storybook".

Dan, that's what happens when a writer leeches off another writer's plots (as Lieberman was doing to Rucka's Ivy storyline), the ORIGINAL writer ends up getting his/her storyline messed with!

Which doesn't seem particularly fair, I think...

Stardust Kid's solicitation copy -

"Last night, when Cody DiMarco went to bed, life was the same as it's always been. This morning, when he woke up, the world he knew...was gone.

A Magic older than Time. An ancient evil. And four children whose only chance to restore their families, and their world, is to solve the mystery of...The Stardust Kid."

That solicitation copy sounds similar to the plot of Abadazad to me..

But hey, I'm certainly open to the fact that I am just crazy. What about you other readers? Does that solicit sound similar to Abadazad to you, or no?

I just figured they were happening in different time periods. That, and really... do you think they'll keep Ivy dead because of a Gotham Knights story? Are we sure anyone besides Brian actually reads that comic?

"MAR052975 CLIVE BARKERS THIEF OF ALWAYS VOL 3 TP $7.49

Anyone reading this? Sounds like a cool idea, although Aguirre-Sacasa did a similar story in Marvel Knights 4 recently (Someone stealing time)."

This is a comics adaptation of a Clive Barker novel, first published in 1992.

Michael Ende's wonderful novel "Momo" was also about supernatural villains stealing time from others.

By the way, that James Jean cover for Fables #38 was most awesome, even by the high standards set by previous JJ covers. I want that on a poster.

Thanks for the info, Frank.

James Jean should have a coffee table book of his covers released, like, yesterday.

You gotta figure there's a market for something like that, no?

I mean, even if you don't like comics, you have to be able to appreciate his art, right?

Brian,

You can go buy Process Recess from AdHouse at MoCCA, you know:

PROCESS RECESS collects the art of James Jean. From his travelogue-sketchbooks of Vienna, London, New York, LA and Taiwan to his finished illustrations and paintings we get to see a side of the artist that most have not seen. James artwork blends media such as watercolor, oils, computer work, and sketching — all of which is collected here in a beautiful hardcover format.

6/09/2005 11:24:00 AM  
Anonymous Frank S. Kim said...

Process Recess is good, but it's more of a sketchbook collection rather than a showcase of finished works. The page dimensions are too small as well. I'd love to see his paintings in coffee table book size too.

Anonymous Dan Coyle said...

Well, the Gotham Knights storyline is quasi-ambiguous aka sloppy; Ivy flatlines, Batman begs Hush to save her, and then we see Bruce Wayne and later Hush standing at the grave of Pamela Isley. I think. Huh? Not very clear, Mr. Lieberman.

I kinda like Lieberman AND Rucka's takes on Ivy as a mother hen for street kids. Makes her more interesting. Actually, an Ann Nocenti Ivy series w/that premise would be AWESOME.

6/10/2005 03:06:00 PM  
Blogger Brian Cronin said...

Yeah, Dan, but I guess I would say that Lieberman's "take" on Poison Ivy basically is just a complete rehash of Rucka's old Detective Comics issues.

Except, of course, the silly stuff he added on (the Bruce/Ivy romance, the Ivy/Hush (?!?!?!) romance, the resurrection of the freakin' FLORENIC MAN!!!) that Rucka thankfully ignored with his Gotham Central issue.
