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!
And the hits just keep on comin’ as Alex and John bring you reviews of the recent week’s hottest books — Punisher Annual #1, Superman: Secret Origins #1, and Giant-size Wolverine: Old Man Logan #1! We also kick off a new segment: AUDIENCE REVIEWS, where we read your reviews of the latest comics you’ve read. After a round of Quick Shots and War of Thumbs, the boys talk about the power of digital comic distribution.
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.
Hello there, weird folk of the interwebs! How’s your sister? Anyways, I’m back to bring you fabulous gifts, enough to make you famous as that dude on the TV selling grilling hardware! Yes! Comics is serious business, so serious that I even give time to choose the best cover of the comics I got last week! Get ready for more seriousness, because this one’s seriously serious!
Deadpool #7 (art by the oh-so-awesome Jason Pearson)
To be honest, I wasn’t a big fan of Jason Pearson’s art until recently when he started doing covers and when he did Joker’s Asylum: Penguin. For some reason, I find his “new” style much more appealing than the one he used on the original Body Bags mini (not that his art was bad back then). So when he started doing the covers for Deadpool, I was as happy as a high-school girl at an NSync concert! I even thought he’ll do the interiors! But anyway, aside from his awesome art, what really attracted me to this cover is that it’s like a very well-done tribute-like to the Uncanny X-Men #141 Wolvie/Kitty cover done by John Byrne. And that basically made this cover the sure winner.
