What do Willie Nelson and Adam Lambert have in common? Nothing, but they are both worth checking out in this weeks’ new releases
Add It To The Collection: Willie Nelson, the perennial country outlaw, highwayman and poster boy for the legalization of pot, is on the cusp of his 80th birthday – there must be something to that little green leaf. For more than 60 years Willie has travelled the world bringing is nasally vocal style to country classics and reimagined pop songs alike. If his latest release, Heroes, is any indication, Willie has no plans to slow down and retire gracefully. In fact, Willie continues to push the boundaries of country music and take his music to new audiences. Heroes is far from a perfect album.
Here’s the thing about making the weekly Wednesday run to your local comic book shop: even though there are hundreds of new and great comic books, graphic novels and sequential art books to choose from on the store shelves, you’re still bound to miss something really interesting.
No. It’s not because the comic shop has sold out of a popular release, or that they forgot to order a hipster-in-the-know one-shot. Nope. It’s because, as I’m sure you’re very much aware, all the great stuff in this art form doesn’t necessarily see print these days.
And that’s why today, I’m suggesting you stay home. Instead of hitting the busy downtown corridor, hit the internet superhighway and make your way to Dark Horse Digital.
