The Staff of Fanboy Comics would like to wish you and yours a Happy Techie Day!  Take a moment to appreciate your resident techie friend and thank them for their efforts.  Techies range from computer technicians to electrical engineers; no matter the trade, anyone who has a highly-skilled technical job deserves to basque in you support.

Don't get me wrong; I love strippers. I'm sorry-- exotic dancers. Is that the PC term for people who take off their clothes and rub their boobs on the chuttles of anyone who has the right amount of cash for a proper lap dance? I mean, I finally have come to terms with the fact that I'll never have the physique to be a go-go boy. Hell, my friend, Scotty, and my favorite movie is Showgirls. "We're all whores, darlin'."

The redemptive vampire and formerly dark slayer are back with the release this week of Angel & Faith #2 written by Christos Gage and with art by Rebekah Issacs. If readers enjoyed anything about the premiere issue of Angel & Faith, then they’ll love this one! Issacs’ artwork is just as strong and immersive as the last issue, and Gage delivers a script that will leave Whedon fans begging for Dark Horse and Joss Whedon to chain the scribe to his work desk and throw away the key!

Being partial to blondes and a sucker for a man that can hold his breath for long periods of time, Aquaman was the DC Nu title I was looking forward to the most, right after Wonder Woman. (See my less-than-flattering review of everyone's favorite reanimated ball of clay elsewhere on this site.) Certainly not yer granny's fish sticks, DC Nu's Aquaman #1 by Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis is no bucket of chum. No longer flopping around on the deck of the Justice League's yacht, Geoff Johns has transformed aqua stud into one tough tuna.

The End. A Web Series.

The robots have taken over and there are only a few survivors left.
(The End. is a post-apocalyptic buddy comedy.)


Special thanks to the cast and crew of The End for allowing the Fanboy Comics Staff to bring its readers a fantastic episode each week!

The DC reboot is upon us, comic book sniffers! Welcome to the new DC universe! In an effort to help bring new readers into the world of comics, the Fanboy Comics staff has decided to review at least five new #1 issues each week of September, DC’s reboot launch month.

 

Maybe it’s just a matter of personal taste, but The Flash #1, written by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato, leaves me feeling underwhelmed.  The story is wholesome and fun, with humor and a healthy dose of blurry, orange action sequences.  The plot here is intriguing, if a little predictable, and the art is really good, so why am I not singing “Zip a dee do dah?” (Get it? Zip?)

I expect more from Geoff Johns. Given the weight his name carries in the comic book sniffer world, I figure this is justified. He’s the man who gave us Sinestro Corps, the Black Lanterns, and the White Lanterns! He’s seen as the mastermind behind DC Comics and the reboot, and he used to be Richard Donner’s assistant for heaven’s sake! His comics should be good! Damn good! So far, Johns’ contributions to the DCnU have left me wanting more, but I will say that his script in Aquaman #1 is enjoyable, funny, and well supported by the wonderful art of Ivan Reis!

By Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti (Back to Brooklyn with Garth Ennis), this book is roughly twice as long as any other DC #1 I’ve read.  It also has a good amount of fresh material, with some pretty obvious references to the current DCU.

Teen Titans #1 was not what I expected. Now, I hope the sniffers out there can forgive me, but my only exposure to the Teen Titans had been through the TV show. This wasn’t what I got. First of all, Teen Titans has been the beneficiary of a proper reboot.

I love to fly and it shows. Sure, that's not the tag line for Pan Am, but I never said it was. I came to fly. Admittedly, my expectations for ABC's new drama, Pan Am, were to the moon, richly due to the casting of Christina Ricci (whom never fails to interest me). Throw in a concept where women are flying sex dolls with a weight requirement and 3-inch "stow me" pumps and count me in.
