I’ll go to the store for: Bitch Planet #10, by Kelly Sue DeConnick, Valentine De Landro, Kelly Fitzpatrick and Clayton Cowles; Black Panther #13, by Ta-Nehisi Coates, Wilfredo Torres, and ‘m not sure who else; Hulk #5, by Mariko Tamaki, Nico Leon, Matt Milla, Andrew Schoonover and Cory Petit; Jem & the Misfits #4, by Kelly Thompson, Jenn St. Onge, M. Victoria Robado and Shawn Lee; Mighty Captain Marvel #4, by Margaret Stohl, Brent Schoonover, Ro Stein, Ted Brandt, Michael Garland and Joe Caramagna; Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur #18, by Amy Reeder, Brandon Montclare, Natacha Bustos, Tamra Bonvillain and Travis Lanham; Nameless City The Stone Heart, by Faith Erin Hicks and Jordie Bellaire; Occupy Avengers #6, by David Walker, Gabriel Walta, Jordie Bellaire; Patsy Walker aka Hellcat! #17, by Kate Leth, Brittney Williams, Rachelle Rosenberg and Clayton Cowles; Ultimates 2 #6, by Al Ewing, Travel Foreman, Matt Yackey and Joe Sabino.

I’ll also review: Old Man Logan #22, by Jeff Lemire, Eric Nguyen, Andres Mossa and Cory Petit; Weapon X #2, by Greg Pak, Greg Land, Jay Leisten, Ibraim Roberson, Frank D’Armata and Joe Caramagna; X-Men Blue #2, by Cullen Bunn, Jorge Molina, Matt Milla and Joe Caramagna; X-Men Gold #2, by Marc Guggenheim, Ardian Syaf, Jay Leisten, Frank Martin and Cory Petit.

So that’s . . . jeez. 9 comics (and one OGN) I’m picking up, and 4 other reviews. Wow. This is way too heavy a week and it’s not fair.

Bitch Planet! That book’s suffered a lot of delays. But it’s always worth it, because it’s always phenomenal. This is the end of the President Bitch arc. So, woot. Black Panther starts a new arc, dealing with Wakanda’s gods. That should be fascinating. Hulk finishes its first arc, and it’ll have some action, but presumably still tons of drama. Jem is always a wonderful read. Captain Marvel’s pretty decent, and I do like the fill-in artists (and would be happy if Stein and Brandt took over full-time art duties on the title). Moon Girl finishes its current arc, by calling in everyone she’s worked with, so that should be great. Occupy Avengers is always good, and this issue is the team fighting Skrull-killers. Hellcat ends, sadly, but it ends with a trip to the mall, so yay! And Ultimates 2 will be more big cosmic stuff as we learn about the First Firmament.

So,this weekend, there was a local “pop event.” A con, basically. My town’s small and shitty and doesn’t have a particularly big geek population, so the event is always really lame and has no one that really interests me. Still, I bought a few things. This set of prints of the Force Awakens kiddos, by Dredfunn.

The precious kiddos.

This actually pretty bitchin’ metal print of Nightcrawler, by Rob Thibodeau.


It loses a bit by being photographed. It looks better in reality. Anyway, this Spider-Man print, by Geof Isherwood:


Silk and Spiral sketches, by Michael Simbajon:

I already miss Silk.

I do want to note those aren’t prints. He does daily sketches, and these are just a couple of sketches he’d done. And, finally, an Arrietty poster:

Such a great movie.

Arrietty, by the way, comes from Studio Ghibli. The studio behind Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbour Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, and others? I feel like the later Ghibli films don’t get enough love. So go watch Arrietty. And also The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, which is amazing and probably the best of the Ghibli movies.

Anyway, yeah, nothing particularly notable. Like I said, it’s a really lame con.

That’s all I feel like talking about this week.

  1. Lots of comics for me this week too. I kind of wonder if X-Men Gold got delayed a week so they could make sure there wasn’t any hidden messages in that one too, before they printed it. Whether that’s the case or not, they really need to learn how to stagger their releases better.
