CCW Question of the Week

Posted: October 29, 2009 in Question of the Week

Suck It

This week’s question:

Do writers and artists having exclusive contracts with one comic company hurt or help the industry?

Just by looking at the pic above I am going to have to go ahead and say that it hurts the industry. On the other hand it does keep Millar, Bendis and Loeb away from my DC comics so that certainly does help it. I guess just like Natalie Imbruglia I am quite torn on the subject. That song was about comic artist exclusivity, wasn’t it?

Riddle Me This

This is not the “Question of the Week” post just yet. That will be coming later today. This is more of a rhetorical question: Can the CCW reader’s handle having their own blog post every week?

I was reading some comments from CCW reader’s Kurumais and Pobra where they brought up the suggestion of having this kinda of “readers” post. You guys and gals tell us every week what you are buying in our “Who’s Getting What” post on Tuesday but don’t really have a chance to tell us why you like the books that you buy. Well, let’s try to change that.

So here’s your shot. Tell us in the comments below what your favorite comic (only one please) of the week was and why. Sorta like a mini review if you will. If it goes well enough I will start making this a weekly post.

Shit Sandwich

So, I read this “thing” earlier today. I really, really, really don’t want to review it. Hell, I don’t even want to write about it. You guys know I am all about punishing myself for the greater good by reading, then reviewing, utter shit so you don’t have to…but not this time. I have instead found a video that sums up what I thought about this comic. After you watch it you will all know exactly how I felt after I finished reading Batman #692.

Who’s Getting What This Week?

Posted: October 27, 2009 in DC Comics, Marvel

Fiddy

Too…many…comics…this…week. Here’s what I am selling one of my kidney’s in order to buy this Wednesday:

Blackest Night #4
Detective Comics #858
Fantastic Four #572
Green Lantern #47
Punisher #10
Secret Warriors #9
Superman: Secret Origin #2
X-Factor #50
Wonder Woman #37

Gadzooks. Sure hope you guys and gals have money this week. So, what’s everyone gettin’?

Oh, ya, just remembered. The Punisher : The List one-shot that comes out tomorrow has one of the worst endings to a comic I have read in a long time. Nothing good will come of this. In fact, I think it’s going to be pretty fucking stupid.

The Sword Vol 3 TP ships this week, too. Just letting you know.
