Whorin’ the Comics – 18th November 2009
Every geeks favourite musical gets a one shot this week and the latest issue of the best superhero comic hits the shelves along with it. As always a full list of this weeks releases can be found here and hit the jump for the Media Whore Networks guide to the comics you should be picking up this week:
Dr Horrible #1
In this One-Shot Wonder, Zack Whedon and artist Joelle Jones (Token) establish how a young, impressionable, but brilliant Dr. Horrible was drawn into a world of crime. Readers are reacquainted with the charming, brawny, crime-fighting superhero extraordinaire Captain Hammer when Dr. Horrible crosses paths with his greatest enemy in an all-out showdown of immeasurable proportions. Special guest appearances include Dr. Horrible’s love interest, Penny; his sidekick, Moist; and a meter man. I loved Dr Horrible’s Sing Along Blog and I’ve been anticipating a sequel ever since it was released, hopefully the comic will prove popular enough to make the rumours of sequel a reality.
Cowboy Ninja Viking #2
Dr. Ghislain sends C.N.V and partner Sara Nix to Tokyo to track down rogue Triplet Yashitiko Ammo (P.G.O) and things go from bad to worse, starting with the fact that sticking C.N.V in economy class on a 18-hour flight to Japan is, in the history of bad ideas, right up there with Stalin, polyester, and Axe Body Spray. Plus, we finally learn who the Scarf Guy is! The title of the comic is Cowboy Ninja Viking that’s got to at least get you semi interested in an awesome action packed comic.
EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT NOW! We return to Earth after the brief space interlude involving Nolan and Allen the Alien… but is it the Earth we knew?What changes have taken place? What has transpired in the time we were away? Who is DINOSAURUS?! Reasons you should probably buy this issue of Invincible: 1) DINOSAURUS is an amazing name for a villain. 2) Issue 68 is serving as a bit of reboot in the series making it an absolutely perfect time to get involved in my favourite superhero comic around at the moment.
That’s it for me this week, what are you guys picking up?
