So after Nightwing #0 (The origin of Dick as Robin) and Secret Origins #1 (The origin of Dick as Robin), we now have Secret Origins #8 giving us... the origin of Dick as Robin.... The New 52 seems to have some sort of complex about this....

First up is the recovery of something that seemed to have been lost in the New 52, Dick's ethnicity...

Revival is one of two great new series* that I've started reading in the last year. When it was announced I avoided it because... zombies, but I heard enough good things to give it a go. I'm only a trade reader though, so I'm an issue or two behind (which is a shame because the cover to #20 looks majestic. They recently did a one-shot crossing over with Chew and while there are some spoilers for Chew, you don't need to know too much about either series to enjoy the issue properly.

It's a deeply unsettling book. I'm not kidding when I say that a hopper full of teeth wasn't close to being the worst thing that I read in the 3rd trade (and I'm massively grateful that I read it outside, on a sunny day)
If you are thinking about getting on the Revival train, or are a Chew reader who wants to know the ackground of Revival, here's a handy catch up guide from the third trade, or issue #12. I might do a post on the covers later, as Jenny Frisson's work is excellent

Where's the baby? Blue cheeks, icicle tears )

It's brilliant. And the horror of that last page is nowhere near as bad as other parts of the book. Don't read it last thing at night.
*The other is the Eisner nominated High Crimes. It's excellent

I feel it's time for one of my "accentuate the positive" posts, where I remind myself why comic books are fun.

Case in point, the Talon series.

And you thought batarangs were hardcore? Not even CLOSE! )

So, because 2014 is a big year for Batman (Something about a milestone anniversary), DC have announced a new weekly Batman title, "Batman Eternal".

Scott Snyder will be overseeing the book, whilst a rotating team of four writers (James Tynion IV, John Layman, Ray Fawkes, and Tim Seeley) contribute stories. So far, Jason Fabok is the only confirmed artist for the title.

The cover seems like it's missing something however... )

Last time, in Bloodstrike, the microscopic villain Dr. Moth was stepping all over Suprema's brain. (Eat your demonically-possessed heart out, Jean Loring!) Now, Bloodstrike turns to the only hope of saving her: Atheists.

Revival #1

Revival is a new horror comic from Tim Seeley (Hack-Slash, Witchblade) and Mike Norton (Battlepug, Fear Itself: Youth in Revolt, Gravity). It's about a small town in Wisconsin where when people die, they're coming right back to life.

four pages )

I'm still not quite sure about Tim Seeley on Witchblade. He took over as the writer as of issue #151, and I'm not sure he quite has a grip on Sara's personality yet. It doesn't help that he's a fiend for grossouts, as anyone who reads Hack/Slash could tell you, and he's injected a lot more random nudity into the book.

There are a couple of things I like about his opening arc, though, such as a brief interjection in the latest issue, featuring a meeting between three past bearers of the Witchblade, Darkness, and Spear of Destiny.

four pages, after the cut )

Has it been 30 years since He-Man and the Masters of the Universe? My GOD do I feel old!

ToyNews! has the article. Yeah, it's a week old.

Anywho... it gave me a chance to post a pic.

Because Context is For the Weak.

Not exactly Calvin and Hobbes. Nossiree.  )

Cosmic Book News has the rather explicit preview up to Image Comics' "Hack Slash #1." I suppose it's nothing worse than a string bikini? lol.

I might have to check this out.

I've been thinking about making this post for a little while, but since today is apparently the day for such things, I may as well go ahead and do it.

Hack/Slash is about one part horror-movie parody to three parts nineties-style "bad girl" book. It's always been a lot better than it has any right to be, even if Cassie does dress like a stripper version of Dinah Lance, but it managed to fly almost completely off the rails at some point around issue #22 of its current run.

One of the high points of the book, though, is Cassie's relationship with Margaret "Georgia" Crump, a stripper from Florida who Cassie met in issue #2. It feels remarkably organic and real for a book that's largely concerned with a 5'5" white girl smacking zombies with a baseball bat, and I know several gay comic book fans who are fans of the comic specifically because of how it's treated Cassie and Georgia.

The following pages are PG-rated but do involve a couple of naked asses, so they're probably not work-safe.

seven pages from a total of thirty-eight )

I have absolutely no idea what's going on with Tim Seeley's Hack/Slash anymore. First it went off on this really long, weird story about Golden Age superhero sidekicks which lasted for approximately fifty years without stopping, then the ongoing stopped coming out, then there were a bunch of limited series and one-shots, and now it's relaunching at Image. I don't get it. (This kind of thing is why I never got into Grendel.)

That aside, Seeley is apparently doing a bunch of work for Marvel now, some of which came out this week. He wrote a short in the back of this week's Incredible Hulks, and wrote and penciled the first issue of the Hank Pym & Eric O'Grady buddy comedy Ant-Man & The Wasp.

three pages from Incredible Hulks #616; one page from Ant-Man & Wasp #1 )
