After one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns EVER, Image Comics is teaming with God Hates Astronauts creator Ryan Browne to bring the beloved web comic to comic shops everywhere this October!
Each and every week “No! No! No!” MK2Fac3 and “Lord Mackleroy” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of August 29, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
While off at wrestling bootcamp, I learned a many things. I learned the art of the double turn, how to properly hip toss my opponents, while transitioning into the “No Lock.” Yes, I learned a lot of things, but the one think I didn’t learn was how to manage my time properly. Still working on that, but until then, let’s talk about some comic books since that’s what you’re all here for. Ladies and gentlemen, this ain’t ballet! This… is… THE GoD LIST!!!
There will never be a comic quite like Calvin and Hobbes. For ten years Bill Watterson worked on an extraordinary ode to the trials and tribulations and joy that comes with being an imaginative 6 year old. It was arguably the greatest newspaper comic strip this side of the twentieth century. In part that’s because its main character was allowed to be as selfish and destructive as he was sweet and imaginative, in other words, he was allowed to feel like an actual 6 year old.
Then one day the strip was gone and comics have been trying to fill that void ever since. Other artists and storytellers have tackled friendship and growing pains, but one comic, Axe Cop, has emerged that really captures the sense of play that kids have. The make-the-story-up-as-you-go-along sensibility where dinosaurs, robots, and aliens are casually thrown into a plot. And unlike Watterson who would usually pull back to his real world in the last panel, Axe Cop digs deeper and deeper into its world of make-believe.
What started out as a weekly web comic two years ago has quickly become one of the most fun comic book titles in recent memory. Written by a 6-year-old boy, Axe Cop is about a cop who carries an axe and who is called in to save the world from various crazy bad guys. Axe Cop: Bad Guy Earth centers around the “Psychic” brothers who are sent out to take over the world by turning everyone into bad guys. Axe Cop and his crew of dinosaurs and other interesting characters not only travel through time, but also space to figure out the mystery behind the two brothers. This is a book that is so crazy and over the top and funny that you can’t help but laugh.
