What I read today 04-20:

BACK TO THE FUTURE #7 (IDW)
ASTONISHING ANT-MAN #6 - Nick Spenser does an interesting job of mixing serious stuff with light comedy. Fun book.
SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL #4 - The best part was when Spidey and Pool went on a double date, and wound up being forced to dance in a club on stage in their underwear. You just don't see enough of that type of thing in superhero comics. PS: Deadpool was wearing his Spider-Man underpants.
HOWARD THE DUCK #6 - Case closed! Boy, does Howard love to say that, even when it really isn't. He just wants it to be true so bad. Did I mention he has a talking cyborg cat named Biggs? Well, he calls him a "robocat" but he's pretty much a cyborg.
ASTRO CITY #34 (DC/Vertigo) - I'll keep going on this as long as Kurt Busiek wants to write the thing.
TITANS HUNT #7 (of 8 ) - Oh well, might as well see how it ends now, I guess.
HYPERION #2  - this will be my last
HUCK #6 (of 6) (Image)
DONALD DUCK #379 (IDW) - Wow, I just realized all these Disney titles have 36 pages of story for $4!
GUTTER MAGIC #4 (of 4) (IDW)
CAPTAIN AMERICA SAM WILSON #8- Getting close to dropping this, I think.
TOTALLY AWESOME HULK #5 - Getting close to dropping this, I think.
INVINCIBLE #127 (Image) - still kinda lost
SNOWFALL #3 (Image) - I think this will be my last
BLACK-EYED KIDS #1 (Aftershock)
HEARTTHROB #1 (Oni Press)
JONESY #3 (of 4) (Oni Press)

I gotta start dropping some stuff.

How did you like Huck? I read the 1st two issues and it was basically a superhero story starring an everyman.


What did you think of Heartthrob?

I like it. It has a real upbeat quality to it, unlike a lot of superhero comics. I see it as taking the original stripped-down Superman concept and crossing it with Forrest Gump.

What did you think of Heartthrob?

I don't think I'll continue on this one. I found the artwork... "interesting", not to say bad, but the artist made the protagonist character look unattractive most of the time by giving her these odd facial expressions (or maybe he's trying, but just has trouble drawing the eyes). Apart from that though, the whole thing was just kind of a drag to read, like the script was really bogged down; it was taking a long time to plow through it, and the whole thing just left me with the impression of being too depressing to really be entertaining. A fair amount of what's happening is predictable, so the fact that it takes so long for the writer to get there is kind of irksome. It's easy to imagine this being turned into a not-bad movie, though (which I'm sure they're hoping).

I finished Betty & Veronica Friends-Easter Annual #247. But I also read Betty & Veronica Double Digest #234 & Betty & Veronica-Jumbo Comics #242 & Archie 1000 Page Comics Gala. I read each of those for 12 minutes.

Not really a comic, but I'm reading "The Gremlins" by Roald Dahl (writing as 'Pegasus', with illustrations by the Walt Disney Studio) from the December 1942 issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine, as reprinted in the back of The Return of the Gremlins hardcover, a Dark Horse Comics sequel to the story (which later was expanded to book form in 1943). The story (and 1943 book) was intended to form the basis of a (never-produced) Disney animated movie. Roald Dahl wrote it when he was in the RAF, still a young man in his twenties. He later went on to write such books as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and The Witches (all of which have been made into films). These Gremlins have nothing whatsoever to do with the popular 1980s film directed by Joe Dante. Also in the back of the hardcover are some reprints of short comic strips by Walt Kelly from WALT DISNEY'S COMICS AND STORIES from 1942 and 1943.

Finished RETURN OF THE GREMLINS (the comic sequel portion which is the main part of the book) and THE NEW ENGLAND LIFE OF CARTOONIST BOB MONTANA.
Started ARCHIE BY BOB MONTANA: THE COMPLETE NEWSPAPER COMICS 1946-1948 (50 pages or so), and ARCHIE GIANT COMICS COLLECTION (also 50 pages or so).

This morning:



These CRIMINAL specials are a great standalone story (last year's pictured below). There are pages from a 1970s B&W retro comic interspersed and paralleling events of the main story. Brubaker and Phillips are to comics what Quentin Tarantino is to films.

Loving Rachel Rising so far. It fills the "good but creepy story" vibe while I wait between issues of Harrow County. I don't usually like black and white but the art is so good. When she was walking through the forest I could practically hear the leaves crunching (without those sound effect words).
