This was an eight-issue miniseries Rob Zombie did for Image back in 2010. Or rather, that was the plan; Image only published four issues. To this day I have no idea what happened. Neither does Rob, apparently; I asked him on a chat about this and he said he finished all the scripts and doesn't know why Image didn't release the rest.

But if you're interested in just seeing half of the story, then read on...

Gone with the Blastwave is a black comedy focusing on two soldiers fighting a meaningless and all-consuming war in the desiccated remains of an irradiated, bombed-out wasteland of a city. Seeing how Veterans Day commemorates the lives lost in a similarly needless, seemingly never-ending tragedy, I thought this would be fitting.

I mean, who would have noticed another madman round here? )

Posted this last year but I figured with the film coming out tomorrow (the trailer can be viewed here) it might be worth another look.

This is 1/3 of Daniel Clowes' 'Wilson'. A movie adaptation with Woody Harrelson as the title character is being released soon.

Hi folks!

Not every new DC comic of the last few years was all doom and gloom; there was the Bat-Mite mini-series for example.



The basic notion was that Bat-Mite had been exiled to the Earth dimension for being too goofy and embarrassing, which had the side effect of limiting his powers somewhat. He decided to spread his "help" beyond the Batman family, to other heroes desperately in need of makeovers as he saw it. This usually caused more problems than it solved.

Four pages from issue #5.

"I feel like I spent an hour swimming in raw sewage." - Linkara

"I’m speechless. This is the single thing in this entire series that can still render me such, even on this, my third re-read of the book. Not that we’re going to run low on insanity from here on out. It’s just that this is easily the nadir." - Fletcher “Syrg” Arnett

Writer: Bill Jemas
Artist: Mark Bright
Inker: Paul Neary
Colorist: Transparency Digital

Because there are no good quotes from the creators, above are quotes from people who read this comic!

"“Marville,” on the other hand, was something different. It may just be the strangest comic that Marvel has ever published.Marville ostensibly began as a parody book, a vehicle for Jemas to make fun of his own industry. Marville-the-parody only lasted for two out of it’s six issues. The last four were…something else." - Laura Hudson

"The ONLY reason you should buy this comic is if you enjoy pain and want to inflict the most you can upon yourself." - Kevin J. Allen (an Amazon review of the trade paperback)

Writer: Bill Jemas
Artist: Mark Bright
Inker: Paul Neary

Couldn't find any quotes or interviews with Jemas about this comic... so quotes from everyone else who read and reviewed this series!

Hi, everybody!

It's time for another round of Jump Start, the time when the Shounen Jump manga anthology tests out new series, and some of the chapters get to appear in the online edition. Last week's new entry has a long title.



It's mentioned in the editorial content that Jump doesn't do that many "school club" series. But this one is also a sports manga, so that's entirely in their wheelhouse. Fifteen pages of forty-five, which is a bit shorter than most of the first chapters we've seen lately.

Shall we dance? )

Sadly, the series that started this week will not appear in the online edition at all. Lady Justice is a superhero parody with a heroine who's invulnerable, but her clothes aren't, demonstrated repeatedly. It reminds me a little of Empowered but with less bondage so far.

But the third new series, Devilyman will be appearing, so you can look forward to that!

Hi folks!

This Jump Start is a little unusual in that it's a shoujo title. Sadly, there is no online Shojo Beat magazine, so when Viz wanted to showcase "Boys Over Flowers Season 2", it had to be in their boys' manga anthology.



I have not actually read Hana Yori Dango ("Boys Over Flowers"), so this synopsis of the original series will be brief: Eitoku Academy is a private high school for rich kids, which is ruled by four obnoxious jerks who call themselves "The Flower Four" or "F4" for short. Their wealthy parents have paid off the school administration to make them immune to punishment, so they are free to bully anyone they please and make the student body go along with it.

That is, until scholarship student Tsukushi Makino finally defies the F4 when they attack her friend, and finds herself the target. She refuses to let them intimidate her, and her stubborness eventually mitigates their jerkitude, especially when their leader Tsukasa Domyoji falls in love with Tsukushi.

We pick up the story a couple of years after the previous cast graduated...21 pages of 65.

The title is a pun in Japanese; there's a saying that 'dango' (sweets) are better than 'hana' (flowers) from a girl's point of view, but 'dango' can also mean 'young men.' )

Hi folks!

A while back I posted a bit from the Hero Hotline appearance in Action Comics Weekly, so I thought you might like to see a bit of the full miniseries. This was actually written first, and three issues were already in the editing phase when the creators were asked to do a "preview" in Action.



7 pages of 22 from the first issue. Trigger Warning for domestic abuse.

Sometimes you need the Justice League. But sometimes you just need a hero. )
