Chrononauts #1 (1st Print) Signed by Sean Gordon Murphy

Another Midtown Comics signing with none other than Sean Gordon Murphy who’s an artist that’s been on fire as of late.  You should check out his Deviant Art site if you get a chance.  He has a bunch of old and upcoming covers for Chrononauts and past series.  I’ve read some reviews where praise is all they could offer for new new series he is coauthor on with Mark Millar.  I’ve also read some dismal reviews comparing it to nothing new and exciting, been done before, time travel, peeps with blond hair, made for Universal to pick up as a movie.

Any ways, I just read it and while the content has been done before and yeah the scientists are typical alpha males that seemingly can Macgyver the crap outta anything in a matter of minutes and still make out with the girl, it still was a fun ride.  There are aspects to the book that are worth exploring and with the placement of our main characters in the timeline it looks to be a fun ride.  Hell if they move through the centuries and create scenes that lead up to potential movie ideas done in real life (Back to the Future…saw an upcoming cover) then kudos to them!

Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 4/1/2015

Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 4/1/2015

Here are my choices for top comic book covers.  As always there are way to many to pick from but these definitely got my attention!

Patrick Zircher is an artist that can draw both consistently and with immense detail dazzling the eyes.  I’m a big fan of his X-O Manowar variants he has and most likely will do in the future for Valiant Entertainment.  Definitely an artist whose work I look forward to.  Next we have a rather disturbing depiction of Garfield done up by Frazer Irving.  All I can say is kudos to thinking a little outside the box with his deviant mannered cat.  Amanda Conner creates a 3 cover view of our crazed Harley Quinn with Dynamite, always fun to see chaos spun around the character.  Yes, Skottie Young made the list, again, but for good reason cause unlike the ever famous Marvel Baby covers this one has a lightsaber in it, and who doesn’t like those two mixed up?!?!

Pulling away from the norm or rather picking a cover who’s main character is barely clothed makes this weeks top 10, I mean she’s barely clothed but a badass none the less.  Another unusual cover was done by Sara Richard and is the variant cover for My Little Pony series published by IDW.  Reminds me of an awesome movie that recently came out called The Book of Life, go rent it.  I even linked up the official trailer of the film for you!

Riley Rossmo was at the ECCC convention I attended recently, awesome guy and this weeks variant cover is by him for the Nailbiter series also an awesome cover.  Leandro Fernandez did an amazing cover for the Names series by Vertigo.  Jae Lee also made the list, again, but come on, his Wonder Woman variant cover freaking rocked!  And finally another cover breaking from the norm was Zombie Fairy Tales Snow White and the Seven Zombies.  I mean go Antarctic Press for that one and I hate zombie books.

Any ways, that’s this weeks top 10 and if you are searching for any of the rare ones good luck and happy hunting!

Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 3/25/2015

Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 3/25/2015

Here are my choices for top comic book covers.  As always there are way to many to pick from but these definitely got my attention!

This weekend is ECCC weekend and with that I have so little time between that and normal life.  The show was pretty awesome and it’s popularity has increased dramatically amongst the comic reading community.  With that wonderful lead in I have this weeks top 10 covers that I found pretty eye catching.  Jae Lee did another outstanding Catwoman showing off his natural talent for the woman form.  Valentin Ramon did a fantastically imaginative cover totally different from anything else this week.  I was even able to get some stuff signed by the creative team over the ECCC weekend.  Darth Vader #3 by Adi Granov was dazzling and sold out I may add with the introduction of this new character depicted on the cover.

We also had some funny (Edward Scissorhands), bizarre (Intersect), and awe inspiring (George Perezs Sirens).  Project Superpowers Blackcross by Tula Lotay was also intriguing with use of shading offset by blood red.  Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt’s interlocking variant for The Valiant #4 also made the list as watercolors are hard to do and this series retailer incentive variants from the two are worth owning if you can find them.  Finally a relative new comer that I have not heard of but will keep an eye out was the retailer incentive variant for Transformers Windblade Combiner Wars #1 by Sara Pitre-Durocher.   Nothing like seeing Windblade giving props to a combiner.  She is one of the newcomer girl Transformers and also a bad ass!  Arcee has her competition even though Arcee is still the original bad ass amongst the Transformers universe.

Any ways, that’s this weeks top 10 and if you are searching for any of the rare ones good luck and happy hunting!

Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 3/18/2015

Top 10 Comic Book Covers – Week 3/18/2015

Here are my choices for top comic book covers.  As always there are way to many to pick from but these definitely got my attention!

Right out from the Dynamic Entertainment camp comes a new series Blood Queen vs. Dracula and while the title sounds enticing Jay Anacleto’s virgin variant cover looks almost like a painting and satisfies my curiosity.  I’m astonished by the sheer detail and it must have taken him a while to trace out.  Marco Rudy’s Bucky cover was simple, funny, and cool all at the same time.  To have our Winter Soldier jester the peace symbol while having both fingers shot off speaks for itself, peace won’t come easy.  Elisa Feliz’s also did a wonderful job on what seemingly looks like a painting of one of the main 3 witches from the Charmed show or comic series.  I definitely was not into the show or the comic series but this weeks cover deserved a spot on the list.

Next we have Mike Mignola’s new series Frankenstein Underground, a series I personally have been looking forward to.  The dude still has it creating a beast of a Frankenstein’s monster for this weeks first issue.  Ivan Timewalker from Valiant had its usual multiple cover printing but Brian Level’s variant cover was pretty nifty.  Shards of glass displaying reflections, including the eye, nicely done and captures the reader almost immediately as you try to scan for more detail.  Lee Garbett’s twisted looking Loki cover was one of the first I snagged this week.  Loki’s grotesque display with devouring the poor captured soul kind of hits ya in the gut, creepy yet satisfying.  Another new series out this week is by screenwriter Eric Heisserer published by Dark Horse should be an interesting read but loved the color scheme of this cover.  Eric did the remake of the Thing and Final Destination 5…can you believe they made 5 of those movies?

Supergirl made the list next and who else could have done such an amazing job on Supergirl’s facial expression and body physique but none of than Emanuela Lupacchino!  Finally two Transformer variant covers made the list, first Midtown Comics’s variant cover and then Livio Ramondelli’s variant.  Both looked pretty cool and yeah they were Transformer covers so sue me!

Any ways, that’s this weeks top 10 and if you are searching for any of the rare ones good luck and happy hunting!

Superman (Vol 4) #32 – Signed by John Romita, Jr. & Klaus Janson (Midtown Comics)

Superman Volume 4 #32

Superman Volume 4 #32 Signed by John Romita, Jr. & Klaus Janson

Another double signature score from Midtown Comics!  They usually appear on a blue moon and disappear in an instant.  I was lucky to score the regular cover with both signatures where as earlier I was able to get my hands on the Bombshell variant signed by both.  This one will go nicely in my collection and I’m proud to have had the opportunity to spend my money!  Now with issue #38 Superman is getting new powers, won’t that be interesting?  That cover alone is hard to find so happy hunting!

Great Pacific #1

Great Pacific #1 (1st Print) Signed by Joe Harris

Recently Midtown Comics has been on a signing binge with Joe Harris creating 3 opportunities to snag a signed cover.  The Great Pacific is a different kind of series that’s based off of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch but taking it a step further.  Actually how about taking it one giant step forward and creating a sovereign nation out of a much larger garbage heap.  Any ways, check out the still current series published by Image Comics.  It’s a different read and just may satisfy your craving for something not superhero related!
