Here it is September 2009 and…what? It’s not 2009? Oh, it’s 2012! So, you mean Daredevil End of Days by Brian Michael Bendis, David Mack, and Alex Maleev is only three years late? Okay. If there’s a series that’s worth the wait, it’s this one, folks. Writing an epic conclusion to the Man Without Fear, Brian Bendis writes this miniseries with the same level of grit, darkness, and swift wit that was present in his legendary Daredevil run. Set years in the future, this will be the official tale of Matt Murdock’s last days. Don’t end up being three years late to the party yourself.
When people ask you if a comic is good, you inherently want to say, “Hell yeah!” Lucking with Joe Keating’s Hell Yeah trade paperback I can and desire to say that very statement. Blending an Indy slice-of-life book with a dimension-jumping superhero actioneer, this book is bloody and artsy all at the same time. Think Kick-Ass on ecstasy, folks.
The only way to read the Walking Dead is to jam it into your eyeballs in massive quantities. Luckily, Image Comics publishes Walking Dead in compendium volumes, which basically breaks down to a crap ton of zombies! To be more specific, the Walking Dead volume two compendium collects trade paperback volumes 9-16. And don’t worry if you haven’t started the series yet, we’ve still got compendium volume one!
Around Gotham City there are many urban legends. Many dark tales that haunt the nightmares of criminals. You get to share in that dredd this Wednesday as Legends of the Dark Knight hits shelves. This miniseries will reprint previously web exclusive material written by talented writers and exceptional artists not usually connected to the character. For instance, the first issue features a story by LOST creator Damon Lindeloff and Animal Man author Jeff Lemire about Bruce Wayne’s early, over-confident days of being Batman. This series is going to be an excellent collection for anyone who wants to read the Dark Knight, but doesn’t want to pick up all the back issues.
