CCW Reader’s Comic of the Week

Posted: November 21, 2009 in CCW Nation's Comic of the Week, Reviews

It’s Saturday and that means it’s time for you guys and gals to tell us what your favorite book of the week was and why. Though I did read quite a few things this week I am going to have to go with Invincible #68 as being the best of the best. Brave and the Bold #29 was great too.

    I must start reading Invincible in HCs again. I read the first HC of the series & liked it alot but I was low on money at the time so I pushed it back of the line for Walking Dead instead (I eagerly await the next issue). I am still reading Jeff Smith’s Bone all in one collection so I havent touched my regular stack of comics yet.

    While not my favorite of the week,the one that struck a cord with me the most was the 1st trade of Irredeemable. What I wouldn’t give to see Supes pull an about face like that…it would be priceless! Mark Waid has certainly ratcheted up disturbing factor. Tho I do think PeterKrause art is abit uneven at times. I am on board for the short term at least.

    k..0…

    All I actually picked up was Daredevil #502. I have a bunch of other stuff waiting to get picked up eventually.

  5. My fav comic this week was ASM#612. Waid knows how to write Spider-Man and Electro really well. Plus because I grew up reading reprints of the old ASM issues I’m seriously stoked to see the classic villains return. Also this issue didn’t focus so much on Peter’s love life.

    Well, nothing really hit it out of the park for me this week. I enjoyed everything I got, well maybe not Adventure Comics, all that breaking the fourth wall crap gave me a headache.

    So my comic of the week is The Brave and the Bold #29.

    A pretty good read, however, I didn’t have a clue as to who Brother Power: The Geek was, never heard of the guy before. I actually stopped reading the book at the halfway point and went to Wikipedia to look up Brother Power and see if he was an actually DC character, and not Straczynski fucking with my head. Yup, he is an actual character created in the 60’s and he does have an interesting if somewhat brief history in the DC universe.

    It appears in this issue that Dick Grayson is the Batman Strczynski is writing here, someone can correct me if I am wrong, it is either Grayson or a very young Bruce Wayne. I think Grayson makes for a more dynamic Batman here, he is a little more vulnerable emotionally and experience wise. The way Grayson handles Brother Power makes for a good story. Dick’s uncertainty about what to do with Brother Power and the fact he is more than a little freaked out by him makes things interesting, and I don’t think a Bruce Wayne Batman would have handled the situation in a way that would have been quite as satisfying.

    Jesus Saiz art is really growing on me, I like the way he draws Batman and his drawing in general.

    I enjoyed this issue a lot, if I had any complaints, it would be the hope that JMS won’t spend too much time digging up obscure figures from DC’s past to write about, we already have Geoff Johns for that.

      Yeah but who needs another Green Lantern/Green Arrow story or Batman/Superman or whatever, I’d prefer to see more obscure but interesting characters like BPTG or DHFH, they should maybe do some of the red circle heroes interacting with the DCU heroes so we could get more of a handle on who they are.

      • Ironmuskrat says:

        I see your point, and B&B is the book to do those sort of stories. As long as JMS is writing a good book, I really have no complaint with it.

    The only comic that I read this week was Underground #3… So, by default that wins. I did enjoy though!

    Adventure Comics was my pick of the week. Not only because of an awesome Blue ring but because of all the 4th wall breaking with Prime. I love that Prime is the symbol of all Fanboys. Maybe that’s why they doing like him because it too close to home. Prime is slowly becoming the new Deadpool. Jerry Ordway art didn’t hurt either. It was a very funny issue and i loved the legion backup.

    “This box. It’s a Condult for rage of the people of this Earth.” Words have never sounded so true before.

    Oh and i would like to say Amazing Spider-Man was a close 2nd. Paul Azaceta art reminds me of Steve Ditko’s. It was some of my favorite art of ASM since issue 600. Dave Stewart colors help alot also. I have never felt so bad and agreed more with a villain since a long time but Electro is right about most of the things he said. A wonderful script by Mark Waid. One of my favorite web heads next to slott and kelly. I can’t wait for the next issue of Power to the People.

    Brave and the Bold #29: Batman and Brother Power the Geek is easily my favorite book this week and I hope DC does more stuff with Brother Power in fact a Brother Power and Booster Gold team up would be so cash.

    Didnt pick up much this week, but I did love Adventure Comics #4

    I guessing everyone basically knows what happened.

    What struck me is that SPB didnt like what was being done with with Blackest Night (“Why couldn’t they leave me out of this?”) but still rushed out to the store to get it.
    Any to troll the internet looking for spoilers.

    You hear that rabid fanboys? Johns is calling you out.

    Its one of the more subtle things I’ve read in Johns’ work.

    out of the comics I bought it would have to be flash rebirth 5, mainly cos I remember Jose saying that Barry Allen’s parents were alive in the orginal continuity and when I got the explanation i was like “awww thats cool”

    I fully expect to catch shit for this, but my book of the week was PUNISHER #11
    Great art, super fun story. I expected to hate this and was pleasantly surprised. Check it out and judge for yourself.
