Testing, proctoring, grading, cleaning: yup, it’s the end of the year–a very long year.  It’s been a long year of long lists of comics, too, which has made the work side of things a tad more tolerable.  Unfortunately, while I am diligently turning lots of pages, I’m not as diligently writing about them.  Hope to get that straightened out once the summer kicks in full force.  Until then…

  • Archie vs. Predator #3 (Dark Horse)
  • BPRD: Hell on Earth #132 (Dark Horse)
  • Mind MGMT #34 (Dark Horse) I&N Demand  It’s about to go down!  Man, I am equal parts excited and, not surprisingly, sad.  Why–why!–can’t all good things go on forever?

  • Alex + Ada #15 (Image) I&N Demand  Speaking of all good things: Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn’s under-the-radar beautiful slice of humanity comes to an end here with #15.  I’m a bit nervous.  Sometimes flash-forward finales work–Weeds mostly worked, right?–and sometimes they don’t: Dawson’s Creek, anyone?  I don’t care if I sound like a Luna-tic: I have a feeling this one’s gonna work out perfectly.  I mean, after fourteen pretty perfect issues, is there any other way for this thing to end?
Alex + Ada #15

  • Lazarus #17 (Image)
  • Low #7 (Image)
  • Southern Bastards #9 (Image) I&N Demand This book’s been pretty damn boss, no?  #9 kicks off a new arc and promises more of the same terrific storytelling from Aaron and Latour.

  • Stray Bullets: Sunshine and Roses #5 (Image) I&N Demand Re: #4: Oops.  So that didn’t work out the way it was planned.  Kudos, of course, to Mr. Lapham for planning it out that way.

  • Magneto #19 (Marvel)
  • Bloodshot: Reborn #3 (Valiant)
  • The Fiction #1 (BOOM!) Just I&N Curt Pires won me over with Mayday #1.  As a result, he’s an easy Must Try.  This layered trip into the realm of fiction sounds like a mash-up of Stand By Me and The Neverending Story.  Yes, please!

  • Giant Days #4 (BOOM!) I&N Demand Fun and crazy funny!  It’s true: I’m having a stressful week.  Luckily for me, BOOM!’s got the cure: Giant Days’ intoxicating twenty-two pages are my Friday happy hour on a Wednesday afternoon.

  • Oh, Killstrike #2 (BOOM!)

What are you looking forward to this week?

Turning pages,
