Each and every week “Youthfully Exuberant” MK2Fac3 and “Cranky Geezer” 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 March 21, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
Well, well, well! Look whose birthday it is this Saturday! That’s right, it’s not Henchman21’s birthday, it’s MY birthday! Or if you speak dubstep, that’s, “errr i-i-i-i whooom bip bip bip bip wum wum wum beep beep beep whoomp!” There are a lot of great things about my birthday, first thing that comes to mind is that the world celebrates the day that their hero was born unto the Earth. The second being that I celebrate really simply with things like comics! Yes, that’s right, comics! Comics are rad, right? Certainly on par with the radness of professional wrestling, that’s for sure. And really, is there anything radder than comics or professional wrestling? Let me go ahead and answer that for you. No, there’s not. So, don’t get those facts twisted inside your head. Right! So, comics are really awesome and there are awesome comics coming out TODAY, so why don’t you read this, what we like to call The GoD List, and pick up all of these fine comics from your local comic shop OR on a digital format like Comixology? There’s not a single reason for you not to, so go ahead and do it! For me? Thanks! Also, thanks in advance for getting me things.
Infinite Vacation #1 Writer: Nick Spencer
Artist: Christian Ward
Published by: Image Comics/Shadowline
Release Date: January 12, 2011
After two of my favorite comics from the past two years, Existence 2.0/Existence 3.0 and Morning Glories, writer Nick Spencer brings us the next book in his line of ambitious creator-owned series with the brand new comic, The Infinite Vacation.
The book starts out semi-normally with the introduction of the main character, Mark, but at the same time, it is also already full of question marks by the end of the first page. The opening page shows us several great things, like hooking up with a beautiful woman, becoming a hero by stopping and apprehending a child molester, and becoming President, all of which happen to Mark, and they are all accompanied by a price tag. The next page, however, presents the exact opposite events of the first page. At this point, Nick Spencer’s writing, accompanied by the water colored, psychedelic art of Christian Ward, starts taking a strange turn as we learn that, with the help of a handy mobile device application, you can switch lives with yourself throughout infinite worlds so that, with a price, you can live any life that you choose.
