Vin’s Picks Week of 7/16/2012

Posted on 19 July 2012 by VinnieAve

This week is pretty scant but I am not sorry about that if you want more books mentioned the best bet might be to suggest me some books so I can reject them (or maybe pick them)

Concrete: Three Uneasy Pieces – I haven’t read anything else that is part of Paul Chadwick’s Concrete. This is another week when there is a collection, which means I will probably pick them up since I like the idea of these but this week it wasn’t more or less terrible. Admittedly there was only one story that I enjoyed which was the end story about Concrete using hugs to capture criminals. If this is way out of character this please tell me so I can know to hate it.

DC Universe Presents #11: Savage – This is not a strong book and the art is terrible as has been seen with the entirety of Savage but the story has been fun all along. Since this is the final part of the story you know that the action will be there. I thought the scripting of the art was something impressive though.

Saga Chapter 5 – I’ve often said that the biggest problem with A Game of Thrones Season 2 (and A Clash of Kings) is that there are too many character and it weakens the story overall. Saga is ripe to fall into this trap but it doesn’t. We’re following four different sets of characters that are pretty far apart but the story at no point. As always this book tops my list and has such great and unique character designs and wonderful story-telling that this is my favorite book getting published now. I think we’ve starting to move towards a major point.

Vin’s Picks Week of 6/18/2012

Posted on 21 June 2012 by VinnieAve

This was a good week for me in comics. I picked up six books and I didn’t dislike one. There are a few that aren’t for everyone and I will be skipping those. Also there is a big thing this week, I think that I am increasingly saying that I like Marvel books better than DC books but I still stand by my older post about Marvel. I must add a warning

Uncanny X-Men #14 – This was a nice break from the AvX storyline that is going on in other books, part of this is due how much X-men stuff was going on in AvX. Instead this time we get more into Mr. Sinister and what he’s been up to since he was defeated a few issues book. The cover wasn’t something that would have drawn me but the art in the book was great. I am a huge fan of one-shots, and this was a nice thing to have. It had a little to do with how creepy Sinister is. There is possibility that this will be a multi-part story but I hope not.

Winter Soldier #7 – This is another series that has been really good. This is the second issue in the current story, so it won’t be hard to catch up. Honestly if you haven’t read the first part, you can read this and be fine. This book has some of the best use of color and wonderful action scenes. There is a great dynamism throughout. If you like cold war type stories this one is for you. If you are like me and don’t like to have a computer open when reading your books this one helps fill in details.

Saga #4 – This is the best series running now. Go and pick it up. Actually this series is starting to slow down a little bit and this is a good thing for the story. It felt a little short and there were only a few scenes. I have to say this one keeps making me get more. If you don’t read this in months please, please pick up the trades. If you don’t live in region that will have it for sale when that comes out I will send it to you.
