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!

Tres Komikeros 42

John, EJ, and Migs volt in this week (but not the way you would think… sicko) and review Flash: Rebirth #6, New Avengers #62, and Blackest Night #7.  After a round of Quick Shots and War of Thumbs, the bastards discuss the possibility of burn out caused by an over-saturation of comic book films in the cinemas.

Prejudged! 01.26.10

Welcome to another Super-sized edition of Prejudged!, where we judge the books by their cover. This week sees the release of many major titles like Batman and Robin, New Avengers, Green Lantern, Superman: Secret Origin, Detective Comics, Chew, Punisher, and the long awaited last issue of Captain America: Reborn. That’s a lot of ground to cover, so let’s get to it.

Let’s start it off with Captain America: Reborn #6 by Brian Hitch:

SPOILER ALERT! In this issue, Steve Rogers comes back from the dead!!! (wink wink, Marvel) Even though we all saw this coming for months now, you could always approach this the same way you did Revenge of the Sith. Sure, you already knew that Anakin was going to turn into the universe’s most awesome douche, but it’d be nice to know how it all happened.  Looking at the cover (which probably took Hitch years to finish), you can see that this’ll be just like a billion other Avenger stories…. I mean, come on. Really?? The “just-throw-all-the-Avengers-in-there” concept does not a good cover make. You know what EJ would call this? Generic. There. I said it.

Next is the cover to Batman and Robin #7 by Cameron Stewart and Frank Quitely:

This issue promises to offer some clues on the death of Bruce Wayne and also features Morrison favorites, Knight and Squire, along with one of my favorite new characters, Batwoman. This is the beginning of a new story arc where we find Batman across the pond. I’ve always thought that Batman was a perfect fit in England. Like a cosplaying Sherlock Holmes. Also, people can finally stop whining about Philip Tan’s art (myself included), since we  are now graced with the stylings of Mr. Cameron Stewart. The title has been on a bit of a slump since its explosive first three issues. Hopefully, this story arc can bring back that same momentum.

Now we have the cover to Irredeemable #10 by Peter Krause:

It’s hard for me to tell how far Mark Waid can take this “Superman Gone Wrong” story, but I guarantee I’ll be along for the ride, ever step of the way. Irredeemable, of course, is the “Superman Story DC Wouldn’t Let Mark Waid Write in DC”, and reading the book, you could probably see how this really was intended to be told in the DC Universe. Most of the characters in Irredeemable have their DC Universe counterparts, and it’s always fun to play “what if”. One thing though; I’ve kind of developed some kind of sympathy for the Plutonian. Not the “him throwing a tantrum” part. The whole “him being underappreciated, hence him throwing a tantrum” part. Is that weird?

Here, we have the cover to New Avengers #61 by Stuart Immonen:

This is a really badass cover. You know, THIS is why we have Steve Rogers back. So, he can pull off an Uncle Sam point and say “I WANT YOU…. to buy this comic book”. Who could say no? Well, Jihadists for one, but that’s beside the point. This is the kind of comic book cover that gets me excited to pick it up. It just demands attention. But also, if you try and focus on the image, specifically into Captain America’s eyes, he doesn’t seem to be looking directly at you. I wonder if I caught something “No-Prize” worthy there.

Up next, the cover to Superman: Secret Origin #4 by Gary Frank:

Geoff Johns seems to be DC’s authority on continuity, from rebirths to reboots, they let him do it all. And I believe that the DC Universe is better for it. He not only made Hal Jordan and the entire Green Lantern Corps relevant, but is now setting the stage for what I think will be the biggest rebirth/reboot/retcon in the history of comic books through Blackest Night. Superman: Secret Origin, on the other hand, is nestled in its own time, unaffected by the zombie infestation of present continuity. Although, this isn’t as much about another retelling of the origin of Superman as it is about setting the record straight about Big Blue’s beginnings. Plainly put, this’ll be the definitive Superman origin story. For now.

And finally:

I’m on board. I don’t care if it’s bad.

There you have it. Your weekly dose of Prejudged! comic books. Join me again next week. Same Bat-time, same Bat-channel.

Tres Komikeros 37

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!
