This time on Heroes and Villains, we’ll be looking at a variety of comics out this week and last, from a variety of genres. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern #5, Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens #4, Bitch Planet Triple Feature #1, Kill the Minotaur #1, Space Riders: Galaxy of Brutality #2, American Gods #4, Harrow County #24, Geek-Girl #4, Sons of Anarchy: Redwood Original #11, Normandy Gold #1, the Savage Dragon: Warfare trade, and the new book on Reed Crandall from TwoMorrows… This is a loaded week, so who cares about Secret Empire when we have so many other cool things to check out, be warned, there may be spoilers…
It was as good as the medium of television could possibly get. Ah hell, it was as good as story could get: brilliant, encompassing fiction that went as deep as a viewer wanted to take it. True Detective was true art.
The series proved that there was a distinct interest in southern gothic horror – that those U.S. states were fodder for great storytelling.
And with the recent revival of the mature and sophisticated imprint from DC Comics called Vertigo Comics, horror is once again front and center. This week sees the release of The Dark & Bloody #1. Follow me after the jump for the horrific details!
If you’re not coming to Biff Bam Pop! for insightful readings and interviews on your favourite television shows, movies, video games or music, then you must be coming here for the comic books! Right? Right!
And what would a Holiday Gift Guide be, here on Biff Bam Pop!, if we didn’t make mention of some of the great comic book collections that should be under the tree, or given as a gift for every fan this season?
Here it is, then:
Over the rest of the week, we’ll be listing some of the cheaper, more moderate, are quite expensive trade paperback and hardcover collections of some of the best comic book reading you or a loved one will likely experience this year! Let’s hit the more affordable ones first, shall we?
Follow me after the jump for all the winter holiday horror, detective sci-fi, comedy and heroic fiction that needs to be read!
Another holiday Wednesday means another Tuesday run to your local comic shop.
That’s right. Just like last week, where Christmas Day landed on a Wednesday, your comics are arriving a day earlier than normal. And it’s strange. It’s strange because you’d think that the comic book publishing companies might take the week off themselves. Hell, the pickings were pretty slim last week, but I was still able to find a jewel amongst the…well, almost nothingness. This week is a little bit different in that there are quite a few titles pushing to be shipped before 2014 officially starts.
As a bit of a horror fan, wouldn’t it be just grand to usher in 2014 with a horrific and absolutely stunning vampire tale? Yes, how about some Bad Blood in time for the new year?
