It’s the 2009 Year Ender Episode with not two… not seven… but FOUR Komikeros at the microphones. Listen to EJ, Alex, John, and Migs recount the year’s best and worst comic moments, single issues, moments, and of course, ongoing titles. Enough with the preamble — this episode’s jam-packed, so get to listening!
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: The Dark Tower – Treachery #2(art by Jae Lee and Richard Isanove)
Jae Lee is one of the artists out there who makes good use of a lot of blacks in his art. His overall style in The Dark Tower series is nothing short of remarkable, and his interiors are as great as his covers. What I personally liked about this cover is her pose, though exaggerated, and how the bright gradient background compliments her. It’s like being dark, yet the colors give her a hint of femininity. And besides, who wouldn’t like a cute gunslinger girl?
Special mentions: 100 Bullets #96, BPRD – The Warning #4, and Marvel Zombies 3 #1
This week features Action Comics #870, Ferryman #1, and Marvel Zombies 3 #1. Each of us also also do quick reviews of other books out this week and give our opinions on the Watchmen motion comic and the rumors about Megan Fox’s possible comic films. We also talk about what we think of summer comics events and its implications on the future of comics.
