Cover Bland

This past weekend I picked up a back issue for a strange little 70’s monster comic called Creatures on the Loose #13 from Marvel. WHY? Because it featured a shaggy white monstrosity in a gold skirt walking out of a rainbow colored television while scaring the beejeezus out of some square. This monster then loudly proclaims “I-HAVE-COME-TO-TAKE-YOU-TO-KROGARR!!”

Now THAT is a cover you just can’t argue with!

JUDGING BY COVER

So how was this inspiring trip to Krogarr? It was alright, if you like wacky monsters. Personally I can’t get enough of em’, that’s why one of the books to watch this week is DC’s Frankenstein: Agent of SHADE #5. Franky-baby is going to smack around O.M.A.C.: the One Machine Attack Construct who looks more like a One Monster Augly Contest. That was “Ugly” with a silent “A.” They’ll make slappy in the facey until one of them explodes or cries or goes home with a sniffle! YAY!

I took the chance on Creatures on the Loose because of the cover. While you can’t judge a book by its cover for legal reasons, you certainly get first impressions. This can be both good and bad. Continue reading

The Good, The Bad, and the Far too Pretty

Back after a week off during which I dressed up as a pirate, drew silly comics, and tackled a fire in my cave. Some careless animal tried to toast pine cones in my toaster while I was gone and, predictably, they got jammed in the slot.  It was probably that jerk, the bullfinch.

GOOD PICKS

Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man dream-team of Bendis and Bagley have their own independent out (contractually from Marvel) called Brilliant #1 that is worth the glance. It focuses on college age super genius’s playing god…think “The Social Network” meets “ALPHAS.”

And I will definitely be grabbing Amazing Spider-Man #670, where the dynamic duo of Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos give J. Jonah Jameson Spider-powers and let him loose on New York! Go, J.J.J., Go! Continue reading
