Each and every week “Sheikie Baby!” MK2Fac3 and “Rowdy Roddy” 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 14, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
Wednesday is THE DAY for new comics, and as per usual, Henchman21 and MK2Fac3 are here to tell you about all the books that they’re looking forward to. It’s another mirror image week where Henchie McHencherson and SK6Factory3 switch things up while one picks three singles and one collection, while the other does the opposite. I don’t know how much you know about how mirrors work, but that’s the way it goes, dollface. We’ve got a lot of books like Saucer Country, Queen Crab, Avengers Assemble, Saga, The World of Flashpoint featuring Batman, Womathology again, and so much more! Honey child, it’s a big week! Anyway, I don’t even know why I’m writing this, so I’ll see you back in a minute when we get to the meat of The GoD List!
Queen Crab is insane on every possible level. I still can’t figure out if Jimmy Palmiotti is crazy for writing this book or if Image is even crazier for publishing it. Queen Crab has essentially no mainstream appeal. This is the kind of comic you would find in an art house publisher’s catalogue. There is very little violence and a storyline so bizarre, David Cronenberg would hesitate before adapting it to film. But regardless of the madness that this book packs, Queen Crab is a great piece of character work. Palmiotti has a real talent for crafting believable characters that live in the same dark and dismal world that we all must endure. Do not expect to find heroes in capes or anything blood soaked and action packed with this one. Instead, anticipate a deeply personal character study with one bat shit crazy twist.
