“If you want my advice, Peter,” he said at last, “you’ve made a mistake already. By asking me. By asking anyone. Never ask people. Not about your comics. Don’t you know what you want? How can you stand it, not to know?”

Good thing we’re here for you, to help you find the way to true self actualization, through some comic books you may not even know yet.

Glory #23

By Joe Keatinge & Ross Campbell

Image has been on a roll, with new book after new book and this week we get the next new book (yes, even though it’s issue #23) from the Extreme relaunch. Keatinge’s new approach to Glory brings the strong heroine that comics fans could hope for, and Campbell’s art will amaze you.  If you missed out on Prophet last month, don’t miss out on the next hit, especially considering this has already sold out at the distributor level.

Peter Panzerfaust #1

By Kurtis J. Wiebe & Tyler Jenkins

This is what they say: “The city of Calais is the first city in France to fall to the Germans in the spring of 1940. A mysterious American boy named Peter rallies a handful of plucky French orphans and they must work together to survive Europe’s darkest hour.”

And to that, I say: yes. The orphans are both French and plucky! I mean, what on Earth does a comic book have to do to make you people happy? I’ll tell you this much; your comics are sorely short of plucky, French orphans dealing with the aftermath of the failure of the Maginot Line. That’s a guarantee. Go ahead, and try to name me another one. You can’t do it. Plucky! Full of pluck. I have nothing further to add.

DC Universe Presents #6

By Dan Didio & Jerry Ordway

Five issue arcs are way too long for this anthology series because when you get a clunker like the Deadman story that kicked off this series, you’re stuck with it for a long time and then people for get the book exists. Putting that aside, I’m excited for the second arc which features the Challengers of the Unknown, a team of adventurers that I’ve always found fun. And before O.M.A.C. I would have thought of Dan Didio on writing duties as a giant red flag. Now? I’m intrigued.


  1. Light Week?! Not likely this week. In fact, 2/3 of these are already on my must-read list. Great picks.

  2. I’ve been getting more and more excited about this Peter Panzerfaust book since i started hearing more talk about it this week! Plus the writer, Kurtis Wiebe has been hanging out in the book’s iFanboy page and has said he will continue discussing the book with the iFanbase there. Its this kind of creator participation and fan interaction that we need mroe of in comics these days. If more creators took this proactive approach, i’d much more interested in trying their stuff. I can’t wait for this now!
    Im pretty confident that Glory is going to blow my mind. the preview pages i’ve seen is unlike almost anything i’ve seen in comics and i love the way they are approaching this character. if it’s even half as a good as Prophet was last month, we are in for a fantastic treat!

  3. I am definitely adding Peter Panzerfaust to my pull list and give a Glory a flip through before making a decision in-store.

  4. I didn’t think the Deadman story was a clunker. I’m more worried the Challengers story will be a clunker, despite the fantastic Sook cover.
