These guys continue to put out the most visually amazing comic book that hits the stands each month. There is just no other book that looks and reads the way the Flash does. They seamlessly blend their art and storytelling and manage to convey the speed at which the Flash moves, thinks, and kicks butt. My favorite part of this title is that they don’t shy away from the fact that Flash is a scientist. He solves his problems and beats his villains, because he is smart. Of course, being superfast helps, but it is mostly because he is smart. He’ll even talk to his villains and find out why they are being jerks. Whether you want to be blown away by the best art that comics have to offer, or just want to read about an awesome superhero full of heart and plenty of brain power, then this is the pick for you.
New Deadwardians #1
by Dan Abnett and I.N.J. Culbard
Vertigo continues to release cool new series, and this week they give us the cool, new mystery series, the New Deadwardians. The coolest thing about new books is when they build a new world, and this book is slowly revealing a really cool setting filled with vampires and zombies. What’s nice about it, though, is that it is not your typical horror fare; it’s actually a slow burn mystery. For the first few pages, I wasn’t hot on the art style and coloring, but as the story unfolded, I realized the art was actually very fitting for the world. Honestly, if you are a fan of vampire or zombie books, this probably isn’t the book for you, but if you love a good mystery, then try this one out.
