It was in a wheat field just south of Panels, Kansas. It was late November. It’s a month of mist. And we were caught in the open. The sun was setting behind us. There was nowhere to run. Twice it came in on us, and twice it missed the heart of us. And that’s when I had an epiphany.
Justice League #10
By Geoff Johns, Gary Frank, Brad Anderson, & Nick Napolitano
Mind The Gap #2
By Jim McCann, Rodin Esquejo, Sonia Oback, & Dave Lanphear
I don’t always love when modern day computer generated effects are used in comics (or, usually, over-used, which might be the problem) but when they are used properly they can be quite effective and dramatic.
Superman Family Adventures #2
By Art Baltazar & Franco
I always enjoy a reference to one of my favorite lines from Superman: The Movie. Especially when it’s found in an unexpected place.
Wolverine and the X-Men #12
By Jason Aaron, Chris Bachalo, Tim Townsend or Jaime Mendoza or Al Vey or Victor Olazaba, & Chris Eliopoulos
Wolverine and the X-Men is a great book without him, but when Chris Bachalo is on pencils it’s on a whole other level.
Before Watchmen: Nite-Owl #1
By J. Michael Straczynski, Andy Kubert, Joe Kubert, Brad Anderson, & Nick Napolitano
As Josh said on Twitter this week, “Joe Kubert inking Andy Kubert is the best looking Andy Kubert art I’ve ever seen.”
The Manhattan Projects #4
By Jonathan Hickman, Nick Pitarra, Jordie Bellaire, & Rus Wooton
American Vampire #26
By Scott Snyder, Rafael Albuquerque, Dave McCaig, & Jared K. Fletcher
I love the perspective and depth of field used here. Also, this book doesn’t feel 100% right unless Rafael Albuquerque is drawing it.
By Brian Michael Bendis, Sarah Pichelli, Justin Ponsor, & Cory Petit
When I turned the page and saw this word balloon, my first reaction was “woof.” But then I started reading it and found it to be a wonderfully entertaining and humorous way to convey a lot of anxiety.
Batman: The Dark Knight #10
By Gregg Hurwitz, David Finch, Richard Friend, Sonia Obeck, & Dezi Sienty
By Jason Aaron, R.M. Guera, Giula Brusco, & Sal Cipriano
When you think about it, it really had to come down to this moment.
