“Over the great bridge, with the sunlight through the girders making a constant flicker upon the moving cars, with the city rising up across the river in white heaps and sugar lumps all built with a wish out of non-olfactory money. The comic books seen from the Queensboro Bridge is always the comic books seen for the first time, in its first wild promise of all the mystery and the beauty in the world.”

By John McLaughlin, Jon Malin & Rob Liefeld
It’s the comic that started it all! The first book in the Image revolution in the early 1990s, Youngblood! The last book in the Extreme relaunch of 2012 and one of the more curious ones as Liefeld’s flagship team book gets a new writer in John McLaughlin, as in the guy who wrote the movie Black Swan. Yes, the Natalie Portman ballet movie. It’s just so crazy, it just might work. I for one, cannot wait.
Josh says try…
By Fred Van Lente & Ryan Dunlavey
The great thing about comics is the the amazing history and legacy of the fascinating and talented creators who built the foundations of the industry. There are plenty of prose books out there that tell the story, but Van Lente and Dunlavey went the extra mile and told these stories in the proper format, as indicated in the title. This collection contains all six issues of the wonderful Comic Book Comics, and I very honestly can’t recommend it enough.

By Judd Winick & David Finch
I haven’t picked up this book since The New 52 launched last year but I’m coming back for this one because I’m enjoying the heck out of “The Night of The Owls”, and because Judd Winick is one of the most underrated Batwriters of recent years, and because it’ll be interesting to see how Tim Drake fits into all of this. Let’s face it, Tim Drake is the superfluous Batkid right now and I’m kind of hoping that he bites the bullet, baby, because these Talons sure could use a win right now.
