Tres Komikeros 15

ep15

After douching away about brand-new TV sets and messing around in comic shops, EJ, Alex, and John review Secret Six #4, Elmer #1, and Final Crisis #5.  They also react to what they’ve seen of the live-action Dragonball film and the whole gender-switching trend in superheroes as of late.  Lastly, the boys have a panel discussion about which of the big two universes they would like to live in as civilians.

Cover of the Week – 11.06.08

Cover of the Week is my presentation of the best cover from last week’s comic book releases, based on the art, design, and overall good looks.

This week’s cover is a no-brainer for me.  Since the book’s so good and the art didn’t disappoint, it’s also safe to say that it’s the best issue of the week, and also the one with the best cover.  So without further ado, ladies and gents, children and children of mind, I present thee, BIG ASS ROBOT.

Gigantic #1 art & cover by Eric Nguyen

What I like about this is that though it uses the classic “pyramid” format, Nguyen is able to portray a scene where there’s this big robot going through a city, people below are panicking, big robot is being attacked by flying things, and the best part is, you don’t know if the robot guy is angry/destroying the city, or is also running away from the flying shooting things like how the people under him are running away. It’s art with a mix of emotions accompanied with a warm-cool color feel.

Runner ups: Amazing Spider-Man #576 (Chris Bachalo), Final Crisis: Resist (Ryan Sook)

Cover of the Week – 10.23.08

Cover of the Week is my presentation of the best cover from last week’s comic book releases, based on the art, design, and overall good looks.

I’m a big fan of minimalism. You know, less clutter and more emphasis on design. So this week’s covers features non-cramped covers with minimalist design. And boy do I like ’em! And the fairest of them all is none other than Darkseid!

Final Crisis #4 (cover by J.G. Jones)

He’s the King of the Week! The Master of Evil! The Anti-Life Equator! (Equator?) Anyways, J.G. Jones makes pretty awesome art, from interiors to covers to interiors back. Like I’ve said, it’s nothing grand, just a simple figure of Darkseid occupying the page, but it delivers the feel of his presence and how big his role is in the book. For that, I give you this week’s medal! And a candy bar.

Honorable mentions: Punisher #63 (Dave Johnson) & DMZ #35 (JP Leon)

Panel of the Week: New Avengers #46 (last panel/page, art by Billy Tan)

Pretty awesome, yeah?
