Whorin’ the Comics – 2nd December 2009
Aliens draws to a close this week and Haunt starts to pick up pace, as always a full list can be found here but hit the jump to find out the Media Whore Network’s guide to the comics you should be reading this week:
Can an android dream? After waking from what appears to be just that, the android Sereda struggles with the idea that he may be more damaged than he originally thought. Still, whether it’s simply his programming or a newly found free will, Sereda is hell bent on effecting the rescue of the woman whose voice brought him down into the bewildering maze of a seemingly endless necropolis. Most of the surviving planetary prospectors are willing to follow him into the labyrinth, but there are two major obstacles to the rescue mission: a horde of marauding xenomorphs, and the man who shot Sereda, who isn’t about to let a damaged synthetic lead the other survivors anywhere. The series has really reinvigorated peoples interest in the Aliens saga and with the upcoming game and film that can only be a good thing.
Daniel Kilgore now finds himself entrenched in his brother Kurt’s secret life of espionage and murder. Finally the two of them meet someone who can explain their other-worldly situation and at long last a few secrets are revealed as we learn more about Haunt and what makes him tick. Haunt increasing popularity probably has something to do with the fact that it’s written by Robert Kirkman (Waking Dead) and drawn by Todd Macfarlane (Spawn) who lets be honest are two of the biggest names in the comics industry today, issues 1 and 2 also get a reprint this week so now’s a great time to start reading to comic greats working together.
A serious limitation of the sword’s power is revealed. And if that isn’t enough to discourage Dara in her mission to hunt down Malia, a very threatening opponent that awaits her might. Sword has been pretty up and down for me but the fact it’s been running for nearly two years and has built up a massive following only serves to prove that I’m wrong when it comes to this series, give it a read it you’re interested in a fast paced action heavy comic.
