The Weekly Pulse – We Are All Scott Snyder

Jams, comma, tasty, is the order of the day here at Forbidden Planet. But not all jams are created equal. Some jams, like that which is Action Comics #6, are a mystery. I’m going to stop saying jams now. Are you reading this? Have any of the New 52s begun to feel stale? Or are we just old and jaded?

There’s always something to love when it comes to the other numbers 6: Detective Comics, Batwing, Animal Man, and Swamp Thing.

Of course all this is just the warm up to main feast: first course Fatale, second course three new Scott Snyder trades! For dessert: Jim Henson’s A Tale of Sand!!

Plus, Alpha Girl and Magic the Gathering are also comics that exist.

Lastly, my apologies to the band Savlonic, who’s name I misspelled in the credits and only just noticed because I have all the typing dexterity of a cave-fish.

Jams, tasty,

Hyped for next Wednesday

Looks like I’ll be searching through the couch cushions for change again next week.  Here’s my projected pull list, I say projected cause I always end up buying more than I plan.

7 Billion Needles Vol 3 – Manga! Yeah I read that stuff too.  This one reminds me a lot of Parasyte but with a female lead.

Avengers #10 – The Hood, The Illuminati, and The Infinity Gems… Oh my!

Crossed Psychopath #1 – My favorite comic book creator David Lapham back with a new Crossed series.  I just finished the last Crossed run Family Values (also by Lapham) and let me tell you, its just as sick, if not sicker than Garth Ennis’ original run.

Deadpool #33 – Deadpool in space.

Deadpool Team-Up #884 – Deadpool and The Watcher, best team-up yet.

Detective Comics #874 -More Scott Snyder, Batfans approved!

Gotham City Sirens #20 -Harley out for Joker blood.

Metalocalypse Dethklok #3 -Ca ca ca comic books.

Punisher In Blood #4 – Jigsaw is back and boy is he pissed, and so is Frank Castle for that matter.

Secret Avengers #10 – Watch your backs Secret Avengers its Bizarro Nick Fury and a guy who can actually kick Steve Rogers ass.

Vampire Tales Vol 2 – Finally! The 2nd digest sized collection of the Marvel Vampire Tales magazine.  I loved the first volume and was super stoked when I noticed this one is hitting shelves this week.  Even Matt D is reading vampire books on the train nowadays.

See you next Wednesday…

Releasing Next Week & Recommended: American Vampire HC

AmericanVampireHCFrom writers Scott Snyder and Stephen King, AMERICAN VAMPIRE introduces a new strain of vampire – a more vicious species – and traces the creatures’ bloodline through decades of American history.

This first hardcover volume of the critically acclaimed series collects issues #1-5 and follows two stories: one written by Snyder and one written by King, both with art by future superstar Rafael Albuquerque. Snyder’s tale follows Pearl, a young woman living in 1920s Los Angeles, who is brutally turned into a vampire and sets out on a path of righteous revenge against the European monsters who tortured and abused her. And in King’s story set in the days of America’s Wild West, readers learn the origin of Skinner Sweet, the original American vampire – a stronger, faster creature than any vampire ever seen before.

Don’t miss out as Snyder and King set fire to the horror genre with this visionary, all-original take on one of the most popular monster stories! This beautiful collection features a new introduction by Stephen King and bonus art including character sketches, variant covers and more!

It can be found on Forbidden Planet NYC’s webstore here.
