Halloweekend Banner

It’s that time of year again, boys and girls! The temperature has dropped, the leaves have turned from green to varying shades of orange and red; children dress in the guise of their favorite characters, and the flickering of candles show the yellow grins of the jack-o-lanterns adorning the porches of your neighborhood. It’s Halloween, folks, and while there’s plenty of people out there that like cute, plastic pumpkins on their doors, we here at Geeks of Doom like our Halloweens a little more horrifying. So, it’s with this, Halloweekend, that I will be bringing to you a series of horror-themed features that showcase the wicked side of geek entertainment.

In the first installment of what I like to call Halloweekend of Doom, I’m going to explore 13 comic books that should get you in the mood for the greatest time of year. The list is in no particular order, and this isn’t intended to be the be all end all of horror comics, but these comics are great to read during Halloween. I’ll cover some that can be considered family friendly, but the majority of these are strictly dark and for mature audiences.

A Farewell To The Bats: 4 Batman Comics Ending With DC’s Launch

relaunch banner

Hey everyone, today’s comic book pull-list is going to be a sad one, as we say farewell to four Batman-related series coming to an end this week. Last week, we saw the final issues of many great comics, and in the future, we’ll see even more titles fall to the DC Relaunch. Honestly, it’s like DC Entertainment has become The Anti-Monitor and all our favorite books are infinite earths phasing together to destroy the comics of the DC Universe. Books like Superman and Secret Six have already fallen into the void of the relaunch, but this week will be especially difficult for me as a Batman fan, as we see the deaths of some comics that are near and dear to my heart: Batgirl, Batman and Robin, Detective Comics, and Red Robin. Sure, for the most part we’ll be getting an alternate earth version of these titles, but will they be the same as we’ve known them? No, of course they won’t. So, with your patience, a glass of soda, and a handful of pills to numb the pain of the loss, I would like to give a proper send-off to one of my favorite eras in the history of Gotham City.

After Batman R.I.P. and Final Crisis, there was a storm in Gotham City with the displacement of Bruce Wayne, the original Batman. Many identities were changed with this shocking news including the likes of Robin, Batgirl, and even Batman himself. And this new take on these characters provided a cornucopia of creativity. But enough back-story, right?

You know the drill, I’m here to tell about some awesome comics.

Batgirl #22Batgirl #22 (DC Comics – $2.99): Until writer Bryan Q. Miller’s run on Batgirl winds up in August, I guarantee you will see this comic picked by myself or Mr. Hench below me, so be prepared. This week’s issue of Batgirl includes Stephanie Brown’s first official Batman Incorporated mission in the city of Londinium London, England, where she meets up with England’s Squire! And if you’re not familiar with Squire, first I feel bad for you, and second she’s the sidekick to the British Batman, Knight! Squire is one of my favorite characters, and her costume is phenomenal, and Pere Perez’s art is beautiful, so seeing Pere Perez draw a Bryan Q. Miller-written Squire is a dream come true! Seriously, when I took a nap yesterday, I literally dreamed about Pere Perez drawing Squire. And that cover from Dustin Nguyen?? OHH CHILD! Color me excited!

Well, it’s an interesting week for me comics wise, I have a lot of collections that I want to tell you about, and about three single issues, all of which are first issues and each is from a miniseries! And, of course… Batman is represented in my section. Let’s kick it off with…

DrumsDrums #1 (Image Comics – $2.99): I seriously know nothing about this book, but it just looks really cool and supernatural. Based on its solicitation, I could say that the book centers around Santeria, more commonly know as “voodoo,” and raising of the dead, and that’s honestly good enough for me, but it also says that it takes place to the sound of drums. Now, I don’t know how they’re going to pull that off, but it’s got my attention. Pick this up if you want to try something new and different.

Last Mortal #1 (Image Comics – $3.99): Continuing the string of “I don’t what the F%$* this is, but it looks cool” is Last Mortal, which appears to be one of those great minis where it’s a super depressing, yet uplifting tale of real life, and I’m sure that this will get a lot of praise by the end of the year, so now’s not the time to sleep on this title.

Batgirl 21Sorry guys and gals, it’s an all DC week for me with an emphasis on Bat this week. I try really hard to bring in indie books for this feature, and if you want that make sure to check out Northlanders, but sometimes it just has to be Gotham. So, if you don’t like Batman, a.) what’s wrong with you? and b.) skip down to Henchman’s Marvel love fest!

ISSUES

Batgirl #21 (DC Comics – $2.99): Batgirl is a phenomenon. It consistently hits on all cylinders, so there’s nothing not to look forward to. For 21 issues, Bryan Q. Miller has not disappointed with his scripts on this book, and while I did not prefer the artist on the past couple of issues, the story has been strong, cute, funny, and action packed. And this issue, and I know this for sure because I’ve seen the previews, features the return of the amazing Dustin Nguyen to the title, and his work on the title is breathtaking. I mean, the cover shown here is probably going to be my cover of the year. I’m really looking forward to this issue, and don’t be surprised when I have the next few issues of my pull list, as well. Deal with it. Or buy the issues!

ISSUES

Infinite Vacation 2The Infinite Vacation #2 (Image Comics – $3.50) – When the first issue of Infinite Vacation came out in January, I was elated with how good the comic was. Nick Spencer continued his reign over comics with another incredibly exciting creator-owned book published by Image. The concept behind the book is that a mobile app gives people the ability to travel throughout the multiverse. The concept of a multiverse is used in many different comics and publishers where there are separate universes with the same characters dealing with different circumstances. But very rarely has the concept of the multiverse been applied to non-superhero characters, but Infinite Vacation does just that. The series has unfortunately met a strong delay with the second issue coming out in April after the first issue came out in January, but the first issue sat with me so strongly, that I’m still excited about this follow-up. So, here’s hoping that the second keeps and amps up the excitement.

DC’s ‘Detective Comics’ Recharges with New Writer/Art Team
space
Henchman21   |  @   |

On Monday, DC Comics announced which artist will join new writer Scott Snyder (American Vampire) for their namesake series, Detective Comics.

Starting in November, artist Jock (The Losers, Green Arrow: Year One, and a recent stint on Detective with Greg Rucka) will join Snyder on one of DC’s biggest titles. Snyder has been getting rave reviews for his Vertigo series American Vampire, and DC must certainly be very pleased with Snyder’s success to be handing over the reins to this series to him after a relatively short time in the business. Jock also brings a very unique style to the book and while I may be a fan of his style, I’m curious to see if others are as excited about him taking over the series.

But this isn’t the only news announced this week. On Friday, DC also announced that artist Francesco Francavilla (Zorro, Garrison) will be drawing a back up feature in Detective Comics, also written by Snyder.
