An all-new She Has No Head! is up, kids. And I really like this one, so check it out.

I get to rave about the idea of Brian Wood’s upcoming X-Men title while bitching about everything that was wrong with Marvel Divas. Oh, Marvel, how far you’ve come! I feel like a proud parent! :)

Sorry for the absence, kids. I’ve been down with the monster flu that’s been devouring the east coast. While I was down however, a new 3 Chicks Review Comics went up, which included our Best and Worsts of 2012 as well as an interview with Batman writer Scott Snyder. Also, my piece about “10 Comics to Read in 2013” went up on Lit Reactor. You can read that piece here.

All that said, if the official announcement had been out on Brian Wood and Oliver Coipel’s all ladies “X-Men” debuting in April 2013, it would have been #1 on the list, guaranteed.

I’ve got a new piece up on Lit Reactor about the importance and advantages of following creators, not publishers or characters, especially when it comes to comic books. Check it out!


Two new reviews are up on CBR:

Wolverine and the X-Men: Alpha & Omega #1

“My kingdom for more superhero comics by Brian Wood. Don’t get me wrong, I still want all his great independent, creator-owned, non-superhero stuff (since I’m greedy), but the plain fact of the matter is that the superhero world is a better place with Brian Wood writing stories in it. “Wolverine and The X-Men: Alpha & Omega” #1 is a great comic, the kind we need stacks and stacks of…”

X-23 #20

“The penultimate issue of “X-23” is another great one, the kind of outing that makes you thoroughly depressed that it is the next-to-last issue and not just “issue #20.” However, pairing up Marjorie Liu and Phil Noto again this month and next (with #21 due in March) is a wonderful way to end the series if it has to end, as they have showed the true potential of this book, and how much it will be missed from the Marvel comics landscape.

As always, likes and retweets are much appreciated and you can read all my CBR Reviews thus far here.

From Declan Shalvey in Brian Wood’s Northlanders #46 this week:



“Brian Wood is not a writer that pulls punches. He doesn’t write “easy” stories, and he asks a lot of his readers, in all the best ways. Part one of his final “Northlanders” epic is no exception. “Northlanders” #42 which begins “The Icelandic Trilogy” and is titled simply “Settlement 871,” is a powerfully moving bit of comics. It’s obvious reading this first brutal issue that Wood has every intention of going out with a bang…”

I also wrote about Birds of Prey #14 this week, but it was an unfortunate disappointment, so y’know, not so interested in broadcasting that one so loudly.  But here ya go.

Northlanders #38 (The Siege Of Paris: 2) is an easy win for Cover Of The Week this week – with Massimo Carnevale’s gorgeous image that feels both up close and personal, and also epic and battle worthy (check out the city and torchlight in the background).  His great use of lights and darks, composition, and color…it’s just beautiful.

I had a lot of pretty good books this week, and some fun covers, but none of them came even close to usurping the crown from Ryan Kelly’s cover for Brian Wood’s The New York Five #2.  Just gorgeous, beautiful stuff.  In my dreams more comic covers look like this every week.
