Buffy S9 10Writers Andrew Chambliss and Scott Allie wrap up the latest story arc, “Apart (of me),” and Buffy’s time as a one-armed robot in Issue #10 of Buffy: Season 9. While the issue features a couple of great scenes and the arc wraps up leaving us wondering what’s to come next, the end of this chapter of Season 9 seems to lack the “omph!” that is desperately desired.

Beasts of the SOuthern WildEvery once in a while, a film pulls away from every comfortable storytelling convention viewers have come to know and expect. Somehow, the story moves like poetry through its world and its events, creating its own rules; as a result, the story becomes more than a film. It becomes a feeling that has the ability to profoundly affect each viewer in its own way. Somehow, that film makes more sense than any tightly-written movie that premiered with it at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. For this year, that film is Beasts of the Southern Wild.

LA Ink StainsArtist/writer Jim Mahfood, aka Food One, talks with Fanboy Comics about Los Angeles Ink Stains published by Image Comics. Releasing June 20th, Ink Stains is the first printed edition collection of Jim Mahfood's autobiographical webcomic. The graphic memoir gives readers an insider's POV to the underground/lowbrow art scene unique to LA, and tells the story of one artistic hustler's rise to the middle. As emergent writer/performer Herbert Russell aptly states in the book's 6-page intro, "Ink Stains is bottomless baskets of adrenaline nachos shot through a peristaltic wave of hedonism, neurosis, and gonzo documentary."

Demon Knights 10Fanboy Comics Contributor Jason Enright brings you his top comic book picks for the week.

 

 

Demon Knights
by Paul Cornell, Diogenes Neves, Julio Ferreira, and Oclair Albert

DC has quite a few really good books out this week. Batman and Green Lantern continue to tell great stories and sell tons of copies. Then, there’s Paul Cornell’s funky, little book about dragons, magic, and, of course, Demon Knights. This book is just pure fun. It has a wonderful cast of characters that are funny, devious, and heartwarming all at once. The action is epic, the art is incredible, and the unraveling mystery is deeply intriguing. Cornell has captured all the fun of playing a game like Dungeons & Dragons and managed to fit it into a nice, little corner of the DC Universe. We all know you pick those big titles I talked about before, but make sure you save 3 bucks to give Demon Knights a try.
