Vertigo LogoVertigo Comics announced Wednesday that they’d be kicking off their brand new digital comics app with a 99 cent sale on all Sandman comics.

So, there’s two things going on here: DC Comics has split their Vertigo Comics imprint from the main DC Comics app to give all of the Vertigo titles a digital home. That’s right! New comics like Fairest, Saucer County, Domique Laveau: Voodoo Child and The New Deadwardians will all be going day and date digital, while established books like The Invisibles, American Vampire, The Unwritten, Fables and many, many more will also be making their way to the Vertigo-only app. Which is pretty cool.

My hero is each and every creator that puts their lives on the line each month to provide each and every one of us with an awesome story so that we can escape from our mundane/great/terrible lives to visit a world that has been created by a writer and artist with a vision and desire to tell stories. I will be eternally thankful to each and every creator whether or not I’m their biggest fan. They have my undying respect. These creators are my heroes. Well, them and people that do really important things like protect freedom and save peoples’ lives and stuff. And Chris Hero. Anyway… The GoD List!

Each and every week “The Showstopper” Henchman21 and “The Game” MK2FAC3 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t?

This week on The GoD List, we have the fallout from this weekend’s Comics of Doom! Words were said. Comics were read, but one book came out the victor! Was it a book from last week’s GoD List? Well, you’ll have to listen to find out. But this is new week. This week sees the end of some books, some new starts, and some books that are currently in their infancy. And what books from this week will have the potential to become the number one contender and take the coveted title of Doom of the Week? We have some ideas. And if you want to see what we picked this week, then you have to read on, Doomnation.

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!

Marvel Comics To Publish ‘Castle’ Graphic Novel
space
Henchman21   |  @   |

CasleMarvel made a big announcement on Monday that they will be releasing a graphic novel based on the popular ABC detective show Castle. Titled Castle: Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm, the 112-page hardcover will feature a story written by Brian Michael Bendis (Powers, Ultimate Comics Spider-Man) and Kelly Sue DeConnick (Osborn), and will feature art by Lan Medina (Fables) with a cover by Carlos Pagulayan (Hulk).

The story will center on the character of Derrick Storm, the fictional detective created by the fictional writer Richard Castle (played by Nathan Fillion on the television series). So it is not a story about the characters from the show, rather it is about characters created by the characters from the show. This won’t be the first time that ABC Studios has released material “written” by Richard Castle, as there are 3 mystery novels already available. However, this will be the first time a novel has been released featuring the character that made Castle famous (on the show).

Axel Alonso, Marvel Entertainment Editor in Chief, said of the project, “It’s exciting to bring the Derrick Storm novels to life for the first time ever. Whether you’re new to the world of ‘Castle’ or a long time fan, there’s something for everyone in CASTLE: RICHARD CASTLE’S DEADLY STORM—and it’s the kind of book that reaffirms Marvel’s commitment to creating new fans of comic books.”

Book Review: Peter & Max: A Fables Novel

Peter & Max: A Fables NovelPeter & Max: A Fables Novel
Paperback | Kindle
By Bill Willingham
Illustrated by Steve Leialoha
Vertigo
Released: October 2009

For those of you that have not read Bill WIllingham‘s wonderful Fables comics or graphic novels, you do yourself a disservice. But worry not, the new spinoff, Peter & Max: A Fables Novel is a standalone novel. Not that it doesn’t tie into the comics by name and locale but it requires no former knowledge of the series or its characters.

I find myself in awe of the writing style, so much so that it is inspiring me to add flourish to my own review. As with the entirety of the comic series, this novel is less about the length of the tale (which is quite long) and more about the depth of its telling. And what a tale it is! It delves deeper into the life of a Fable than I have ever before been honored to witness (or in this case, read).

‘Fables’ TV Ad Now Airing On BBC America

Fables Book 1 CoverKudos to the people over at BBC America for doing something I’ve never seen done before on television. They’re currently airing an advertisement for Bill Willingham’s Fables, my current favorite ongoing comic series. Vertigo’s blog posted this a few days ago and I thought it was worth sharing with you lovely readers.

If you’re not reading Fables, I highly recommend the series. It’s a story that appeals to anyone who’s ever been read a bedtime story or used their imagination to play in the world of fairy tales and fables. Expertly crafted with a combination of art and storytelling that will really show you the power of the medium, Fables is an amazing journey that I want you to take.

Check out the ad below and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
