The At Least There’s Metal One
Run of the mill kind of week, with DC in the middle of an event, Marvel in continuous event-epilogue-prologue status but making time for Legacy and the indies doing what they do best: driving us crazy with an insane number of titles that we'll only know if they are good once they are sold out 😀
Anyway, decided against including Shirtless Bear Fighter #3 as Brian and Keith already mentioned it this week, and the new #1s that are coming out aren't saying much to me, but let me know how wrong I am below!!!
Venomized Villains Variants
Anoher week, another batch of Venomized variants … This week, however, we get Tyler Kirkham, Adi Granov, Marco Checchetto, Julian Totino Tedesco, Francesco Francavilla and Gustavo Duarte, so there should (at least) be something nice for everybody's PC.
Swipe of the Week
Frank Cho doesn't just do Manara homages, he can do a pretty mean Steranko too. The original is a major classic that has been remade quite a few times, but it's always nice to see a new one, especially when it's by such an amazing artist.
Layout of the Week
For those of you who are sick of swipes and familiar poses in your comic covers, I give you this beautiful cover by Otto Schmidt. Schmidt is a very talented artist and I hope he gets a shot at a major character soon (sorry, Oliver Queen).
It's no secret that Grrl Scouts: Magic Socks has had some crazy variant cover artists (Skottie Young, Bill Sienkiewicz or Mike Huddleston), but this one I had to mention. It features the art of Pixar artist Eliza Ivanova. If I had had more time I would have mentioned her sketchbook (came out at SDCC) because it's a beautiful thing. I really hope she graces the world of comics with her talent a bit more in the future, because she's goooooooooooooooooooood!That's it for this week. What would you buy? There can be only one!
