Welcome to Images and Nerds, a shiny–like the Before Watchmen covers–new comics-related blog, where we’re beholden to a singular master: what we like.  That’s right: we’re going to be keeping it real up in here as we lose ourselves in fantasy worlds, in the creative visions of the current crop of creators from the majors and independents.

I’m excited to get this thing a-rollin’, but I’ve got some work to do first: I’ve got to read some comics!  I just got back from my favorite comic shop, which I’ll profile soon enough, with the following books in my bag:

Fury Max #5

Daredevil #16

Stormwatch #12

Swamp Thing #12

Animal Man #12

Dial H #4

Ultimate Spider-Man #13

Nite Owl #2

Action Comics #12

The book I’m going to read first: Fury Max.  (That’s quite an honor with Waid’s sinfully fun DD and Parts 1 and 2 of the Rotworld crossover also in the bag.)  Ennis is absolutely blowing it up with his take on everyone’s favorite one-eyed, foul-mouthed colonel.  I can’t wait to see what goes down in Cuba.  Hell, knowing what tack Ennis has taken thus far, it could be Miss Defabio…

I’m one happy nerd.

For now.

Time to turn some pages.
