Week after week, the shelves of local comic book stores nationwide are packed to brim with shiny new comics. Sure you’re a smart cookie and probably have tonnes of grabs already but many books do go unnoticed and its my job to make sure you are getting your moneys worth. I could ramble on for a bit but I sincerely doubt you’re still reading this paragraph and have long since scrolled down to the good bits– SO without further to do, enjoy and note this is preference, what’s exciting to me may not be exciting to you and hey friend, I’m OK with that:
LAZARUS #5 | PICK OF THE WEEK
After last issues jaw-dropping, game changer of an ending, it seems like its been an eternity since we were treated to another Lazarus book. Well, the grind is over and Forever is finally back. I have stayed away from every solicit, I have no idea what this issue is going to be about and that’s the way I like it. All I know is that cover is bolts! If you haven’t been following, grab this issue and the Vol. 1 trade. You will not be disappointed.
Last issue, and you may have heard about this, but last issue was 22 pages of a guy wielding a double chainsaw tipped bamboo stick and carving through zombies like turkey. For 22 pages. One guy. Thousands of zombies. It was one of the most glorious things I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Seriously, Darrow’s attention to detail is astounding. Just look at that cover! LOOK AT IT!
As far as mainstream comics go, Snyder and Capullo’s Batman is untouchable. Zero Year continues, just like it will for the next foreseeable future and no doubt it will be awesome. Let’s face it, unless Snyder decides to throw in some sparkly vampires and a Selena Gomez cameo, then Batman‘s reign is never going to end. Isn’t it exciting to be alive during a classic run as it unfold right before your eyes?!
