New Comics For 7/29

I don’t mention how awesome Detective Comics is in the main post so I thought I would do it here. WHY AREN’T YOU READING IT YET?!?!
3204479207_9be1dca83b_oEveryone should bring a flashlight with them this week to help them find their way through the Dark Reign. A whopping SIX comics with Dark Reign in the title and that’s not even counting the books that tie in to this sort of event. I have to give it to Marvel, just as everyone started to complain about event fatigue they have a company wide crossover that is subtle enough to not be an “event” and yet wide reaching enough to spawn a slew of mini series.

This weekend the world famous San Diego ComicCon took place and the one announcement that I got excited about dealt with Jeff Smith creating all new stories featuring the characters from Bone! I can’t wait to read the further adventures of Smiley, Phony and Grandma Ben. Coincidentally (or maybe not?) this week Scholastic through their Graphix imprint is releasing the Rose mini series by Smith and Charles Vess. This is a fantastic companion to the Bone color editions that finally finished a few months ago. I don’t know who is more excited about this news, me or my kids.

On the other side of the comics spectrum, this week sees the second volume of Northlanders. I know I keep talking about this book and Brian Wood incessantly but I honestly can’t find books better than these. Much like Woods other brilliant book DMZ, this story touches on isolation, fear and terrorism. Unlike most of the literature dealing with these issues Wood doesn’t seem to be stating an opinion one way or the other. Both sides of the conflict are shown with brutal honest clarity. On top of the subtext is a fantastic character study about a man who is trying to single handedly fight off the marauding hordes of Norsemen who have taken control of his country. Northlanders is truly fantastic stuff for those who don’t mind a little dismemberment with their social commentary.

    Dave Sim hates women so it makes sense for him to write a comic about the fashion industry. BRILLIANT!
