Light Week? Try LOCKE & KEY: GRINDHOUSE, PETER PANZERFAUST VOL. 1, & AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #11

The sea was angry that day, my friends – like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli. I got about fifty feet out and suddenly the great beast appeared before me. I tell you he was ten stories high if he was a foot. As if sensing my presence, he let out a great bellow. I said, “Easy, big fella!” And then, as I watched him struggling, I realized that something was obstructing its breathing. From where I was standing, I could see directly into the eye of the great fish. Well then, from out of nowhere, a huge tidal wave lifted me, tossed me like a cork, and I found myself right on top of him – face to face with the blowhole. I could barely see from the waves crashing down upon me but I knew something was there. So I reached my hand in, felt around, and pulled out the comics.

Locke & Key: Grindhouse

By Joe Hill & Gabriel Rodriguez

You’ve heard about Locke & Key, yes? You’ve thought about trying it out? Here’s your chance, with this one shot stand alone story, that we’re promised is very violent. What’s nice about this one is that it’s the full creative team of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, just like the regular book. Try it out, and don’t get mad at me if you want some more.

Peter Panzerfaust, Vol. 1: The Great Escape

By Kurtis J. Wiebe & Tyler Jenkins

There’s no doubt that right now Image Comics is the place to be for exciting creativity in comic books. And amongst your Sagas and The Manhattan Projects is one of my favorites: Peter Panzerfaust. This story of Peter Pan and the Lost Boys in WWII France trying to survive the Nazi invasion is fast paced, fun, and completely unexpected. It may be a variation on Peter Pan, but make no mistake–this is a straight up war comic. And a great one at that. Here’s your chance to see what all the fuss is about in a pretty cheap introductory collection.

Avenging Spider-Man #11

By Zeb Wells & Steve Dillon

Avenging Spider-Man has been a “your mileage may vary” kind of book. Some stories have been brilliant, some have been forgettable and then there was the one Greg Land drew. ┬áBut trust me True Believers, with Spider-Man’s 50th anniversary celebrations gaining momentum, this issue is indeed the real deal and a must read for any Spider-Man fan. Plus, Steve Dillon. That’ll get me any time.

Comments

  1. I was hoping that Avenging would be all Samnee, I only get it when a creator interests me and that would have done it.

    • I agree with you @Zeppo but after reading the blurb underneath, and being happy with Amazing Spider-Man 692 I think I’ll give this one a shot.

  2. That Peter Panzerfaust is a hole in One!!

    Now I’m going to hit golf balls into the Ocean!! Yeeah!!

  3. Love the Seinfeld quote! Haha:) Totally agree with Avenging being a hit or miss every time it comes out. I’m really hoping this is good and really excited to see Zeb Wells back on the book:)

  4. I wist it was a light week.

  5. Always love the light week suggestions.

  6. I should check out Locke & Key sometime, been meaning to.

    Also recommend Witchblade, new story starting this week.
