The Web's Comic Sense #1

The Web's Comic Sense ...totally should be read with "pigs in space" from the Muppets in mind
(follow Ken and Drawn to Comics on Facebook and Twitter)

Sorry for the re-post guys but I figured since I took so long to actually put this up it deserved it's own Blog post.  This way you can enjoy the first appearance (it's a reprint!) of The Web!

Marvel:  Right now Marvel is renumbering many of their issues under the "Marvel NOW" moniker.  The main goal of this is to gain (or regain) more readership by having issues start back at #1.  Now the continuity is still their but most all of these books have fresh story lines that are easier to pick up and run with.  The two that recommend this week were All New X-men and Uncanny X-men.


DC: Actually started the "renumbering" idea with their "New 52" comic line.  Though unlike Marvel NOW the continuity has been retooled on some of the characters.  Again this is a great place to start off at.  Plus many will either have Trade Paper Back Collections already out or out soon.  Though we didn't specifically reference just one Batman comic, as they are all pretty darn good, the one we are leading with this time is Batman & Robin.


Image: Is a great place to look for some comics outside the Marvel and DC super hero-verse.  You'll find many interesting stories written and drawn by some fantastic people here too.  The 3 recommend this week were SEX , The End Times of Bram and Ben and The Walking Dead .


Oni Press:  I honestly don't know too much about this publisher besides that they put out Scott Pilgrim and that really is all i need to know.  But Ken recommended Helheim for those looking for a Viking fun sort of tale.


Lastly Ken had a recommend comic to IGNORE ...  or really a comic that he wished hadn't arrived.  But it is here and really I have no idea what to say about this more than it's the Situation

That's about all folks.  Join us later this weekend as we review Jurassic Park 3D and G.I. Joe: Retaliation same Hammer time, same Bat channel.
