Invincible 94As far as I am concerned, if I was only able to have one comic book title in my pull list, that book would be Invincible. As the series approaches Issue #100, it still remains as fresh and exciting as ever.

Serenity Those Left BehindIs there seriously anything better than getting more Firefly? Methinks not. I went into Serenity: Those Left Behind completely in the dark as to what it was about, when it took place, and who was involved, which left me completely satisfied at the ending.

Batman 12 DCNUFanboy Comics Contributor Jason Enright brings you his top comic book picks for the week.

 

 

Batman #12
by Scott Snyder and Becky Cloonan

Batman #12 is unlike any Batman comic I have ever read before, and I could not be happier. Scott Snyder tells an amazing story about a young woman who is inspired by Batman to change her life for the better, and in doing so he may have just created a new favorite Bat character. What really stands out about this book thoughout is the amazing art by Becky Cloonan. Her style is fresh, vibrant, and, unlike a lot of the darker art we're used to in Batman books, a lot of fun. Even better, Snyder writes to her strengths, so that her style fits this story perfectly. You will definitely want to pick up this book, as it may be the standout issue of the year, and you definitely don't want to miss the introduction of Harper Row, the coolest new DC character.



 

Dancer 4Nathan Edmondson writes the best action/thriller comics today. He has killed it with books like The Activity, Who is Jake Ellis?, and Grifter. So, there was no doubt in my mind that Dancer, his latest creation would be just as awesome. Even though I highly enjoy his work, I've been especially impressed with Dancer. What makes Nathan's work especially poignant are the characters he crafts and the relationships he builds for them. Between all the intrigue, violence, and mystery, he manages to fit very realistic human moments in all of his books. Without giving away too much about this series' unique twist, let's just say that Dancer has one of the more unique hero/villain relationships and that really shines through in this issue.

 

Creator Owned Comics 3Creator-Owned Heroes is the coolest concept for a book ever. It's an anthology and each month the reader gets 2 comic stories, interviews with the creators, articles on writing and art, and how-to segemnts that break down the comic creation process. Astoundingly, all this is packed in a 50-page color comic that only costs $3.99. Mind blown yet? We're just getting started.

 

The Massive 3In The Massive #3, Brian Wood asks the reader, what is the mission of a world-saving environmentalist group after the world has ended? This is a big story told in a very small, personal way. Wood intercuts splash pages showing the various disasters that have befallen the world with the story of a ship full of environmentalists who think that just because the world is ending, it doesn't mean that their mission is over. In fact, it may just be the beginning.

 

It Girl 1It can sometimes be confusing to distinguish, "it" from "I.T." when written and read. Since the advent of the Information Technology department at any company that uses computers, it's been a pain. Luckily for those already in the know of characters created by Mike Allred, you may have an idea of whom I speak.
