Prejudged: Under the Radar (10.13.10)

This week in Prejudged we’ll feature some titles that are probably going to fly past your radar in the midst of all the big releases. Amongst established names like Bendis, Morrison, Johns, and Millar you’ll find some fairly familiar ones occupying the “New Releases” shelves this week. Here are a few titles that are worth adding to your stack.

 

THOR: THE MIGHTY AVENGER #5
Written by: ROGER LANGRIDGE
Art by: CHRIS SAMNEE
Cover by: CHRIS SAMNEE

Thor gets the “All Ages” treatment in this recent title from the Marvel Adventures line. Although, don’t let that “All Ages” tag fool you. This is a fun series. Doing away with the weight of years of continuity, “Thor: The Mighty Avenger” breaks it down to the things that make the God of Thunder such a great character. You don’t even need to brush up on your Asgardian history to enjoy this title. It’s all about old-school superhero entertainment with good writing and spectacular artwork from Chris Samnee and Matt Wilson. I personally can guarantee a smile on your face while reading this. Grab the back issues too if you can, especially the joy that was issue #4. Have fun.

LOCKE & KEY: KEYS TO THE KINGDOM #2
Written by: JOE HILL
Art by: Gabriel Rodriguez
Cover by: Gabriel Rodriguez

For those who haven’t caught wind of this spectacular series yet, I assure you you’re missing out on some of the best artwork in comic books today. From the mind Joe Hill, the spawn of none other than Stephen King, and mind blowing art from Gabriel Rodriquez, Locke & Key tells the tale of three children who go through terrible tragedy and find themselves in the mysterious and powerful Key House. This comic book was also just recently picked up by Fox to be adapted into a TV series by the team of Kurtzman, Orci, and Steven Spielberg. So for anyone who’s looking for the next Lost, keep an eye on Locke & Key.

STRANGE TALES 2 #1
Written by: RAFAEL GRAMPA, JEFF LEMIRE, FRANK SANTORO,  JOHONEN VASQUEZ, SHANNON WHEELER & LOTS MORE.
Art by: SEE ABOVE
Cover by: RAFAEL GRAMPA

Marvel’s premier Indie stage, Strange Tales, comes back with another helping of up-and-coming writer/artists bringing their own unique take on classic superheroes. It’s quite rare for anyone to place an anthology series anywhere near the top of their weekly stack, but this new volume of Strange Tales could be the exception. There’s a long list of creators on this title, and if you’re looking for the next great talent in comics, Strange Tales is definitely a good place to look. One particular creator to look out for is Rafael Grampa who drew that amazing cover. Do click on the image for a larger, more awesome view.
