CCW Reader’s Comic of the Week

Posted: December 5, 2009 in CCW Nation's Comic of the Week

It’s Saturday here on the blog (as I imagine it is in most parts of the world) and that means that we would like to know what the best comic you read this week was. So please tell us the title of said book and why it was so damn awesome down in the comments section.

For me it was a tossup between The Sword #20 and the Empowered One-Shot.

    JSA All stars #1

    this spins right out of the past storyline that was going on in the JSA book. it features the part of the team that left the jsa to become there own jsa team. this team is more planned based. magog is leader mainly along with power girl and the story still continues with the whole why star girl hasnt been attack by the villains yet. its revealed at the end tho. i really enjoyed this first issue. it is 3.99 but it contains more pages then a normal book so im willing to spend money on this.

    THE MIGHTY #11

    The shit hath hit the fan.
    By far the most exciting issue of this series, this penultimate chapter sets up for a hell of a finale and features, in my opinion, some of the best art this series has seen. Can’t wait for next issue!

    Beasts of Burden #3 or the Goon #33 were the best comics of the week but you guys HAVE to review Image United….the art is so bad it made my eyes bleed…and as for the story….what story?

    • Oh, I read it Locus. We talk about it very briefly in our new segments. I couldn’t bring myself to actually review that “comic”. Maybe when #2 comes out I will.

      That comic was one of the worse things I have ever read. There is no way that Kirkman actually wrote it. In the credits it is listed as “Story: Robert Kirkman” but it reads like a fucking Liefeld comic. Some of the dialogue did even correspond with what was happening in the panel. And so many things happened off panel too. What a fucking mess.

      Also, for some reason the blog is marking your comments as spam which is why they are not showing up right away after you submit them.

    Scalped #33 – The best comic at the moment by a mile.

    For DC, I gotta say “JSA All-Stars”.

    Marvel, it’s tie between “Nova” and “Fall of the Hulks Alpha”. (Hulks Alpha was actually pretty damn good!)

    • Hulk Alpha was god but I think that has to do with Jeff Parker’s writing more than anything else. The next part is written by Jeph Loeb. We’ll see how good that is. I did like JSA All-Stars too though Williams really needs to tone down Power Girl’s bewbs. There were a bit ridiculous in that issue. Wally Wood would be proud.

    And as far as Indie publishers, my vote goes to Blue Oceans “Vincent Price Presents” #13 (Dr. Phibes issue)

    I may be the only person in the world reading it!

    Only bought two comics this week, Empowered One-Shot and Chew #6. Both comics were excellent but if I had to choose one it would be…

    Chew #6

    The first five issues of Chew was about as solid a start as any comic I have read. I did wonder how things would shape up in issue six after the departure of Mason Savoy. Mason was a great character and I had my doubts that Chew would as good without him being Tony’s partner. The start of the next chapter, International Flavor, starts out strong and John Colby is a good replacement for Agent Savoy.

    I won’t say too much about the story, it has a lot of surprises that I don’t want to spoil for people. It has everything you would expect from Chew. Offbeat characters, humor, action, blood, gross things for Tony to eat or maybe not eat and central mystery that is as cool as it is confusing.

    The Art by Rob Guilory is excellent as usual and John Layman is writing something here that is really unique.

    Ok, enough ass kissing this book. =)

    im so freaking behind on my comic reading i havent even got to the shop yet and i still have to sit down and read the past 2 issues of detective i read them quick but havent had time to savor them as they should be

  9. Blackest Night: Wonder Woman wins it for me. Great story, great art, but a bit too short for me but otherwise it was awesome.

    Blackest Night Flash. First Flash book I’ve ever read and I loved it, especially since his rogues are so cool.

    The only thing that I’v read recently is the comic (actually, an excerpt from a comic), BarryKeegan’s Jason and the Argonauts Redux.
    No dark angst
    no wasted hyperbole
    No M.Knight(ish)surprise twists
    no mega event with tie ins
    Just a solid story with good art and no frills
