Light Week? Try Fear Agent #28, Artifacts #1 and Time Bomb #1

Let's face it. It's rare that we have a light week, but what if.. just what if that turns out to be the case?  What if the quantity is rich but the quality, the content, the meat, the stuff of love is light and unsatisfying?  That, my friends, is what we are here for.  Our recommendations will fulfill you, if only for the 10 minutes you're reading.  But you… you'll remember. Oh yes, you will.

Fear Agent #28

By Rick Remender & Tony Moore

It seems as if, most recently, I'm participating in celebrating the end of something I love.  TV shows wrap up and end there run, as do comic book series, and I don't think there's a single comic that has been universally enjoyed by everyone here at iFanboy as much as Fear Agent.  I remember sitting in the hotel in Charlotte, NC while attending Heroes Con, years ago, and reading the first trade and going over to Josh and Conor and asking, "Have you read this? This is really good…" and thus began our love affair with Fear Agent.  Am I sad that Fear Agent #28 is the first issue of the last story arc? A little bit, but I know I'm going to enjoy the hell out of it, and I encourage you to as well.  Even if you've never read a single issue of Fear Agent, try this one, sure you may be coming on at the end, but Remender writes this comic in a way that lets you jump on at any point, and by the end of the issue, be thirsty for more.  So what do you say? Give it a shot and see what we've been raving about.

Artifacts #1

By Ron Marz & Michael Broussard

There are a lot of you out there feeling burnt out from DC and Marvel cramming event after event down your throat.  I know how you feel.  It's not that it's bad, but it's just that, you've been there before. It's all too familiar.  But what if you changed it up, just a little?  Over at Top Cow, they've been doing good comics, and not enough people know about it.  This is a shame.  Think you're not into Witchblade?  Try it.  Ron Marz has been helming this whole ship for a good long while, but there's plenty to grab if this is your first time.  If that's not enough, take a gander at Michael Broussard's work, and get on board early for a name you're going to see more and more.  Trust me.  Just one taste.

Conor says try:

Time Bomb #1

By Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray & Paul Gulacy

The writing team behind Jonah Hex, Power Girl, and Random Acts of Violence send modern day soldiers back in time to kill Nazis? There's not a lot more that needs to be said. Sign me up!


  1. Nothing is wrong about killin Nazis!

  2. I’m very down for Time Bomb, but I’m a trade waiter for Fear Agent.  Just love the sound of Time Bomb though, and I think it seems as though it may have an interesting spin on this type of story.
