Oh my! Oh my! Comixology is having a Grant Morrison sale! For a mere 99 cents a piece, you can pick up several of Grant Morrison’s finest DC/Vertigo comics, including Doom Patrol, Batman, All-Star Superman, and more.
What’s the catch? Well, let’s get into that. Barely any of the comics on sale will provide you with a full story. While you may be teased by the mention of Batman R.I.P., Batman and Robin, and Batman Incorporated, the first thing you need to realize is that this isn’t the entire run. If you’re not reading Batman and Son or Club of Heroes, then the rest of this run won’t make any sense. But beyond that, the entire run of Batman and Robin that leads directly into Batman Incorporated is not in this sale. If you want to do that, you’re going to want to buy the regularly priced Batman and Robin #10-16. So, if you’re wanting to check this out, I really suggest you go back to Batman #655 and start from there and keep going. You won’t regret it, it’s one of the finest runs on Batman, for sure.
Put on your coats and caps, everybody! There’s pine needles on the living room floor, snow on the ground, and a scent of cinnamon in the air. Your dogs and cats are tearing apart wrapping paper, your family’s in town, and you can’t stop drinking eggnog for some reason. That could only mean one thing, folks, it’s the nondescript religious holiday season! And that means that it’s time to go into credit card debt so that you can show those closest to you that you care, you know? And to make it a little bit easier on you guys, we here at Geeks of Doom have been shoveling our driveways so that we can deliver to you this, The Holiday Geek Gift Guide! The best gifts possible for the geeks on you gift-giving list!
In this section, I’m going to tell you about several comics from across the nerd-sphere that you can give to that very special comic book geek in your life. In the description for each comic, I’ve broken down some info on who these books are perfect for. So open your eyes, open your hearts, and open your minds to some great gifts for all the comic book fans that you know. There’s literally something for everyone here, and each of the books are great starting points. So, even if your friends are not comic book readers, this might get them in the mood to keep going. Merry merry, everybody!
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? 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 17, 2011. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
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.
Guys, I’ve never been more excited about 10 pages of comics before in my life. Today, Vertigo announced that, not only will We3 get its first hardcover treatment, but that it’s also getting an extra ten pages from Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely. And if you realize that this is the same team that summed up all of Superman’s origin in one page, then ten pages can do a lot.
We3: The Deluxe Edition is set to be released on June 21, 2011, and you can pre-order your copy here.
We3 is easily one of my favorite comic book stories of all time, and I’m a huge fan of the the oversized Deluxe Edition hardcovers that DC/Vertigo has been doing over the past few years, so I’m really excited to get my hands on a copy of this book.
