Whorin’ the Comics – 21st October 2009
Another week, another great bunch of comics to pick up. As always a full list can be found here and hit the jump for the Media Whore Network guide to the comics you should be picking up this week.
Cowboy Ninja Viking #1
We can always count on Image bring us some of the most crazy and original comics out there and Cowboy Ninja Viking looks like it’s no exception. It started with Dr. Sebastian Ghislain: rogue psychotherapist/covert op/DJ. Tasked with creating a counter-intelligence unit, he turned to those long thought useless to society…patients with Multiple Personality Disorder. These agents became known simply as Triplets. Misguided? Yeah. Impractical? Sure. But did it work? Absolutely not. Now someone has located each Triplet and created a band of ridiculously disturbed, but highly effective assassins. Our only hope? A Triplet known as Cowboy Ninja Viking! Sounds insane, I’m looking forward to checking it out.
BPRD Vol 11 – Black Goddess
Looks like Mignola is continuing to pump out Hellboy fast as he can which is by no means a bad thing. With Liz gone and their most powerful enemies banding together for a final, catastrophic attack, Abe, Kate, and Johann must determine the price of their souls as they decide where their loyalties lie, and whether the life of a friend is more valuable than the fate of the world. Hellboy is one of the comics that I look forward to every month and I’m stoked that Mignola can keep the pace up, here’s hope he can keep it going.
Things still haven’t started to look up in The Walking Dead and things don’t look much better in this months Invincible. After escaping from a Viltrumite Prison, Nolan Grayson and Allen the Alien must use what they’ve learned to gather the powers of the universe and unite them against the Viltumites. It all starts here, folks! The Viltrumite War looms large on the horizon! Cory Walker the artist who helped Kirkman create the series returns to help show us what happens when the Viltumites go to war.
That’s it for this week, what are you guys planning on picking up this week?
