Yeah, there’s a (very pretty) arc which is all guest artists doing character-focussed issues, and Brandon does the last part of that arc. Very cool story. But I mean, I’d also just recommend that series all day long because I’m a huge stan for Gillen/Mckelvie/Wilson.
multiple warheads is my favourite, and way better than a comic that started out as weird porn has any right to be. i love his artwork a Lot. all the fun details crammed into his art really help to give both the world and his stories a lot of texture.
Anybody here a fan of Ed Brubaker?
I read a few issues and enjoy what I got out of it. Need to circle back and read more if that one.
Hell yea. I’ve read all his Image stuff and loved it to pieces. Brubaker/Phillips is one of the greatest comic teams working today.
One of my favourite writers working in the medium today, he’s pretty much hit a 100% success rate with everything he’s done. I don’t believe I’ve read anything by him that wasn’t a joy.
Criminal probably being the highlight of his work.
Thanks, sweet Iron Fist avatar. Who are you using the most in I2 (I’m leaning towards Flash/Supergirl/Harley/Beetle)
Oh we talking about Ed Brubaker now? Aka The co-writer of the best run of Iron Fist comics? Aka the best modern Cap writer? Aka Mister Westworld? Aka Bru-Tang Clan? I’m down with Eddy B.
And what’s this a Brandon Graham discussion? God you nerds own. Kings (or Queens) amongst internets.
I think my favourite Brubaker work is The Fade Out as I am such a huge fan of the Golden Age of Hollywood combined with noir stories.
Have any of y’all read Sam Humphries and Javier Garron’s run on Legendary Star Lord? Volume 3 is a Year One story that expands on Quills origin. It’s really, really solid. I mean, it’s not going to set the industry on fire like Batman: Year One or anything but it’s really good.
I need to. I jumped off of Star-Lord when it got drawn into that Nova/X-men/Cap Marvel/GOTG cross-over.
Yeah. That Black Vortex story is a mess. Or, perhaps I should say, it seems like a mess. I have read both the X-men and Starlord parts of that story because they don’t publish it in a way that makes a lick of sense. Each book has their separate story parts in separate trades. So, I’ve read like six of the issues but they were all out of context.
A shame really. I like a lot of the creators involved with those books, but trying to follow that on Marvel’s Unlimited Break Sticks app was a nightmare.
Yeah, that story was done way too Old-Marvel-Crossover style that was just like Here Are 10 Parts, Hope You’re Gonna Read All 10 Issues Across 5 Series Otherwise You’re Having A Bad Time. But Unlimited even made reading stuff like Infinity a pain in the toucus; that’s just not a strong app.
Yeah, lord knows Ive had my share of issues with it on my ipad
Also, what did we all pull this week? I got WicDiv, Squirrel Girl, Nightwing, Cave Carson, & The Flash, which ended the Button arc which was dumb and bad and stupid.
Cool cover on that Flash issue at least, right?
Nothing against Mr. Garrick, but I wish they didn’t spoil that on the cover (also I bought it digitally, so no motion for meeee).
My only pull was WicDiv, which I really enjoyed, but I always enjoy WicDiv. I still haven’t read last week’s Shade.
The only thing I’ve got in comics this week is a collection of the newer Minimum Wage.
Yet to see this week’s comics (excited for the WicDiv special) but has anyone read much Valiant stuff? I have a digital library app that has free access to a bunch of minor publishers (including some Dynamite, Dark Horse, old Boom! stuff, but no Marvel/DC/Image) and jumping blindly into the Valiant universe has been pretty enjoyable. Wrath of the Eternal Warrior is a real highlight!
