A big week, top-heavy with top books.
Also, lots of lasts. Some creeping ever closer.
- The Massive #25 (Dark Horse): Since February, The Massivehas been an I&N monthly Top 5 Book. That’s a record five months in a row! On the strength of that, I think it’s safe to say that Brian Wood’s book is headed for the Top Ten of 2014. For the most part, “Sahara” delivered its powerful feminist message in…
Another big week of big books, highlighted by four titles from our Top Ten of 2013 (Wild Blue Yonder, Saga, Zero, and Archer & Armstrong) and an Archie two-fer!
- Batman and Robin #33 (DC): Robin Rises: Omega#1–a nonsensical, never-ending fight scene–was a huge disappointment. You know what? I’m going to pretend it never happened. Will be tough, though: I’m not too excited about the inevitable…
From the beginning, Wild Blue Yonder (published by IDW) has been the comic book equivalent of a Summer Blockbuster: non-stop, high-octane (literally!) action, larger than life characters and, thanks to the stunning visuals of Zach Howard and Nelson Daniel, special effects like you wouldn’t believe.

The 2014 Harvey Awards final ballot has been set!
Congrats to nominees Mark Waid (Best Writer) and Chris Samnee (Best Artist & Best Cover Artist), the daring duo behind Marvel’s Daredevil (Best Continuing or Limited Series)!
I’ve been Double Dogged!
Who are you wearing today?
Five categories. Five winners.
That is all.
A big week with some stand-out books and a few make-or-breakers, too. Toss in a bunch of #1′s and you’ve got yourself a pretty full bag.
Oh, and a picture of a wrestler.
- Robin Rises: Omega #1 (DC): It’s all led to this. By it, I mean: early on, Tomasi did a terrific job of toeing the Bat-line that Morrison drew in Batman Inc.; but for the most part the post-Two Face team-ups were terribly…

A very welcome wee week.
- American Vampire: Second Cycle #4 (DC/Vertigo): I’ve been disappointed by the Second Cyclethus far. It pales in comparison to the first go-round; it’s as if the life has been sucked out of the story by some supernatural force–because there’s no way Snyder’d stumble so badly on his signature series without there being a unreasonable explanation, right? Damn thing’s gone…
