Top Picks in Comics for 3/16/11

Hello again friends, Anthony Silva here again for another round of my Top Picks in Comics for the week of 3/16/11.  Things have been busy in the comic world lately; big events are kicking off, with the Fear Itself Prologue, Book of the Skull along with more Death of Spider-man.  My pull list was a little light this week so I decided to pick up a couple extra books to round out my week and make sure you get your money’s worth out of my picks.

If you’d like more things that are free and awesome, be sure to check out this weeks episode of the Comic Issues Podcast where we’ll be talkin’ TMNT and doing horrible impressions of your favorite 80’s cartoon theme shows.

Now lets talk about some frakin’ comic books…

The Ultimate Showdown: Batman vs Superman

The Ultimate Showdown: Batman vs Superman

As mentioned on the Comic Issues Podcast, I’m a bit of a fan of the Batman Brave and the Bold TV series. I really appreciate the blend of both campy Batman and the Dark Knight. Well the ultimate showdown is almost upon us, as Batman squares off against Superman. Of course that pesky Red Kryptonite is to blame but this should be a pretty epicsode. (see what i did there)

Top Comic Picks for 3/9/11

Hello again kids and welcome back to Anthony’s Top Picks for 3/9/11. I, of course, am your own personal hero Anthony Silva of the geektastic podcast Comic Issues, and if you picked up your comics this week then I’m sure you were not disappointed, because I sure as hell wasn’t. It was a good week for comics as we got one step deeper into the alternate world of the X-Men in “Age of X”, Ultimate Spider-Man comes one issue closer to his death, and Batman comes face to face with angels.

Be warned, spoilers may be ahead.

Bethesda Teams Up With Dark Horse to Release RAGE Comics [Wait, what?]

Bethesda Teams Up With Dark Horse to Release RAGE Comics [Wait, what?]

On June 22nd, Bethesda and Dark Horse Comics will release a three-issue comic series based on the upcoming game, RAGE. No doubt, this is just another way to get the name of the game buzzing in the geek-o-sphere. RAGE comes out in stores on September 13th in North America and the 16th in Europe.

This comic series, developed with the direct participation of RAGE‘s creative director, Tim Willits, presents a new twist on the post-apocalyptic near future as one woman discovers that the survival of humankind doesn’t necessarily mean the survival of humanity.  The Earth has been devastated by a collision with an asteroid, with a tiny fraction of the population surviving in life-sustaining Arks buried deep below its surface. Those who survive emerge to find a wasteland controlled by a global military dictatorship called the Authority. But a rescued scientist learns that the Authority has lied to her and the other survivors about how this new world came to be.

Here’s to hoping one of the speech bubbles will say “FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU.” Or, at the very least, have a panel with an easter egg saying “F7U12.”

Full press release below.

Update: Cover art has also been released.

Top Comic Picks for 3/2/11

Hey kids!  It’s your favorite host of the hilarious podcast, Comic Issues, coming back to you again with my top picks for the comic book week of 3/2/11.

With last week being pretty hard on my wallet, it was kinda nice to have a light week this time around.  Although, there’s no such thing as too many comic books.  Comics kick ass, and so do you, and good things come in light weeks.  If you dig anything I talk about today then be sure to keep an eye out for them at your local shop this Wednesday, and don’t forget to check out another awesome podcast from me and the guys.

Top Comic Book Picks for 2/23/11

 

Sweet Christmas!  What a comic book week it’s been for me. Hey kids it’s Anthony here again, plague carrying host of the Comic-Issues.com podcast.  This week I found myself picking up 11 books, which is huge for me.  I don’t have a job or lifestyle to allow me to buy as many books as I particularly would like, but I do try to keep myself satisfied.  Typically my stack of books tops off at about 6-8 a week.  This gives me enough that I’m happy, but honestly I’d like to take one of everything.

This week I turned a corner on a lot of story arcs, coming into the home stretch.  I got deeper into the Age of X, got one step closer to seeing the Death of Spider-Man, and watched Peter Parker mourn the death of everyone that he’s ever lost.  In the end when I had to pick my favorite I decided I just had to go with the one that made me laugh.

I, my dear reader, will let you in on what I feel made up the best of what came out for the week of 2/16/11.  I tell you only the best, because comics are a lot like pizza: you never know what you’re gonna get.
