Prejudged! 06.02.10

Welcome back to a special edition of Prejudged! This week we look at indie graphic novel releases from big name creators. These types of releases allow these creators get back to their roots and experiment with new ideas that have branched out of working in the mainstream comic book industry.

Moving Pictures

MOVING PICTURES

Written by: Kathryn Immonen

Art by: Stuart Immonen

Cover by: Stuart Immonen

TK favorite Stuart Immonen, along with his wife Kathryn, brings us this tale set in two timelines.

Solicitation:

During World War II the Nazis pillaged much of Europe’s great art collections. Museum curator Ila Gardner and SS officer Rolf Hauptmann are forced by circumstances to play out an awkward and dangerous relationship in a public power struggle. Moving Pictures unfolds along two timelines which collide with the revelation of a terrible secret, an enigmatic decision that not many would make, and the realization that sometimes the only choice left is the refusal to choose.

A God Somewhere

A GOD SOMEWHERE

Written by: John Arcudi

Art by: Peter Snejbjerg & Bjarne Hansen

Cover by: Peter Snejbjerg & Bjarne Hansen

A tragic Super Hero tale as seen through the eyes of those closest to them, from the mind of Hellboy artist John Arcudi.

Solicitation:

After a mysterious disaster, a young man named Eric finds that he has just as mysteriously developed extraordinary abilities. He starts out trying to help people, but his solitary position in the world isolates him in ways no ordinary human could understand. This original graphic novel written by John Arcudi (B.P.R.D., WEDNESDAY COMICS) charts the arc of Eric’s evolution from man to…something else, as seen through the eyes of his family and his best friend, Sam.

The Pro

THE PRO

Written by: Garth Ennis

Art by: Amanda Conner & Jimmy Palmiotti

Meet the world’s first superhero/prostitute. Once again, Garth Ennis screws with your head and the genre, with the spectacular art of Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti.

Solicitation:

Reintroducing the outrageous story of THE PRO in a paperback version of the deluxe hardcover edition. Just when you think GARTH ENNIS has gone too far, just when you thought it was safe to walk the streets, just when you thought no one would go near the idea of the world’s first superhero prostitute… here comes THE PRO! Plus, in “The Pro Meets the Ho,” our plucky heroine faces a super-powered “soiled dove” whose powers of perversion exceed the Pro’s own!

See you guys next week!

Prejudged! 05.25.10

It’s another big week in comics and Prejudged! is here to shed some light on a few of them.

Secret Avengers #1

SECRET AVENGERS #1

Written by: Ed Brubaker

Art by: Mike Deodato

Cover by: Marco Djurdjevic

Marvel’s Heroic Age is in full swing with this week seeing the debut of Steve Rogers’ Secret Avengers. Moon Knight, Black Widow, Nova, War Machine, Beast, and Valkyrie. I don’t recall an Avengers team as badass as this. With Brubaker and Deodato on board, now it’s the heroes’ turn start breaking some heads. Although I hope Deodato doesn’t give War Machine “ass armor” like he did for the Iron Patriot.

Mystery Society #1

MYSTERY SOCIETY #1

Written by: Steve Niles

Art by: Fiona Staples

Cover by: Ashley Wood

If you’re a sucker for underground cults and such, you might want to jump onto this new series by acclaimed horror writer Steve Niles. Based on the solicitations, the Mystery Society are Nick Hammond and Anastasia Collins, who like to spend their time and money infiltrating secret bases like Area 51. I’ve never read anything that mashed up Horror with Espionage before, and Mystery Society should be interesting.

Green Hornet #4

GREEN HORNET #4

Written by: Kevin Smith

Art by: Jonathan Lau

Cover by: Alex Ross

This title has been surprisingly good. It’s good that Kevin Smith turned the Green Hornet and Kato into legacy characters. Female Kato is a very nice touch too. The artwork by Jonathan Lau is solid and captures the mood of Green Hornet’s world. Anyone who was a fan of the original TV series should definitely pick this up. Also, if you can, grab the one with the J. Scott Campbell cover.

Power Girl #12

POWER GIRL #12

Written by: Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti

Art by : Amanda Conner

Cover by: Amanda Conner

Here it is. The last issue of Power Girl for Palmiotti, Gray, and Conner. It’s very sad to see this team leave this title, especially Amanda Conner’s art. I really suggest that DC should collect this entire run into one big hardbound edition, complete with Palmiotti and Gray’s script and Conner’s sketches.

So, that’s it for this week’s Prejudged! See you next week, True Believers!

Tres Komikeros 41

John, Alex, and Migs return with a boatload of reviews with their spotlights (eew?) shining on Power Girl #9, Devil #1, and DoomWar #1.  After a hefty round of quick shots, the boys discuss the recent big changes in the big offices with Dan Didio, Geoff Johns, and Jim Lee each getting title upgrades.  The show is capped off with a panel discussion about the komikeros’ expectations for the New Heroic Age and Brightest Day.  Listen and learn, kids.

Episode 10

ep10

John, EJ, and Alex return with the weeks hottest books and discuss a bunch of quick shots after the main reviews — Ultimatum #1, Terra #1, and Gigantic #1.  Election season is over, so the boys also tackle such key issues such as the Gotham titles being cancelled/concluded in 2009, Loeb getting axed from the Heroes creative echelon, and Jenna Jameson’s Zombie Strippers feature. What?
