People are always asking what books they should read, and this week,
Ron, Josh, and Conor round up their favorite books of 2009 so far.
There hasn’t been a better time to be a Superman fan in a long
time. With James Robinson, Greg Rucka, and Sterling Gates writing
fantastic stories on Superman, Action Comics, Supergirl, and Superman: World of New Krypton, the Man of Steel’s world has never been stronger or his world more interesting.
Sticking with the DC Universe, a little
housecleaning is being done of the Flash family by masters Geoff Johns
and Ethan Van Sciver on The Flash: Rebirth. Great for new and old Flash fans, this is the corner of the DCU to watch.
Mark Waid, having taken the reigns at BOOM! Studios is back to his best writing form with Irredeemable, the tale of a Superman gone very, very bad.
Glen Brunswick and Dan McDaid get all Kirby cosmic with their Image series, Jersey Gods, about some very powerful dudes and a love story in New Jersey.
Over at Marvel, the event to be reading is War of Kings, along with Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy,
spearheaded by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. Self-contained, smart, and
fun, it’s everything you want from a Marvel comic book.
Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill are back with League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Century: 1910 from Top Shelf Comics and Knockabout, and we couldn’t be happier. Make sure to check out our previous show on League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, with Kevin O’Neill.
Joe Kelly is back with a vengeance, whipping up comic book magic with a boatload of great artists on such books as I Kill Giants, Four Eyes, Amazing Spider-Man, Bad Dog, and more. Make sure to check out our interview with Joe Kelly here.
Dark Horse’s Umbrella Academy: Dallas blew us away just like the first story, Apocalypse Suite did. Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba are both mad scientists of comic book excellence, and that’s all there is to it.
Itching for Garth Ennis writing World War II comics? It’s OK, admit it! The good news is, there’s Battlefields from Dynamite Entertainment.
Finally, against nearly all odds, , IDW is putting out some incredible G. I. Joe comics. I know, we can hardly believe it either.
