July 11, 2017

Follow me on Twitter (@XMenXPert). More comics tomorrow.

I’ll go to the store for: Animosity #8, by Marguerite Bennett, Rafael de Latorre, Rob Schwager, and Marshall Dillon; Animosity The Rise #2, by Marguerite Bennett, Juan Doe, and Marshall Dillon; Black Panther & the Crew #4, by Ta-Nehisi Coates, Yona Harvey, Butch Guice, Scott Hanna, Dan Brown, and Joe Sabino; Generation X #4, by Christina Strain, Amilcar Pinna, Martin Morazzo, Roberto Poggi, Felipe Sobreiro, and Clayton Cowles; Hulk #8, by Mariko Tamaki, Georges Duarte, Matt Milla, and Cory Petit; My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic #56, by Christina Rice, Agnes Garbowska Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #22, by Ryan North, Erica Henderson, Rico Renzi, and Travis Lanham.

I’ll also review: Jean Grey #4, by Dennis Hopeless, Harvey Tolibao, Jay Ramos, Dono Sanchez/Almara, and Travis Lanham; Old Man Logan #26, by Ed Brisson, Mike Deodato, Frank Martin, and Cory Petit; Weapon X #5, by Greg Pak, Greg Land, Jay Leisten, Frank D’Armata, and Joe Caramagna; X-Men Blue #7, by Cullen Bunn, Cory Smith, Matt Milla, and Joe Caramagna.

So that’s 7 comics I’m picking up, and 4 additional review. Jeez, another pretty heavy week.

The good stuff: A double-dose of Animosity. That’ll be kinda crushing, I figure. I mean, it is not a happy, positive comic. It’s a horror. And a double-dose of that? Yeah, that might be rough. But enjoyable. More of the Crew, with Harvey back to write this issue. I look forward to her take on Luke Cage. She absolutely nailed Storm, so we’ll see how she does Luke. Generation X has been excellent, the kind of teen mutant book we all love, balancing drama and humour. (The preview also reveals that Jubilee is a big Drag Race fan. Which is pretty believable.) Hulk has been stellar. Sadly, no preview for this issue, but I don’t need one to know I’ll love it. And Squirrel Girl goes to the Savage Land! This is gonna be amazing!

Some Kickstarters I wanna promote: First up, We’re Still Here, an all-trans comics anthology. It is, as the title suggests, an anthology of comics by trans creators. 55 stories by trans creators, covering a wide variety of styles, genres, and more. The comics industry remains, unfortunately, entirely too hostile to anyone who isn’t a cishet white male. So it’s important to support diversity where we can. And this falls under that. This helps demonstrate the market for trans creators and narratives. Also, anthologies like this are just a great way to find new creators you may love.

Can I Pet Your Werewolf?, an anthology of cute werewolf stories. It just seems really fun. And it’s got a good bunch of creators. Speculative Relationships Vol. 3, a comics anthology of sci-fi romance. Normal Deviations, a weird fiction anthology. The premise is to get a bunch of writers to do stories based on a weird picture. Which is just a fun premise. And finally, The Tim’rous Beastie Anthology, being put out by Iron Circus Comics, which always puts out great comics. This one’s about “big adventures in a small world,” or alternatively, “small lives in a big world.” Basically, little critters having adventures. It looks pretty great.

So, yeah, all those are definitely worth your cash.

So I’ve finished my first week of training. It’s pretty boring, because training always is. It won’t really be interesting until we hit the floor and start taking calls. And then it’ll be a lot of getting yelled at. Oh well.

And that’s all I’ve got this week.
