Hey, I haven’t done one of these posts for a month! I suck! Okay, here you go:
The 10 Best Comics of February 2012 – I’m pretty happy with the variety on the list this month! That is all.
10 Replacement Characters That Made Their Comics Even Better – This was a strangely difficult list to research, as there are plenty of legacy characters in comics – but not a lot that didn’t take a different name, or precipitate a renumbering of the title.
The ‘Saga’ Of Brian K. Vaughan: How He Went From Runaway Kids To Epic Fantasy [Advance Review] – I really can’t stress enough how amazing the first issue of SAGA is… It actually can’t be hyped up enough, it’s just that good. Also, I re-read BKV’s first issues for this piece, and Y The Last Man #1, in particular, is amazingly good… He evens shows you how/why Yorick survives, and you don’t even know it yet.
10 Easy Ways To Drive Comic Book Fans Insane – I actually got myself angry while writing this! Also: it was inspired by three separate people on Twitter all complaining about the Spider-Man hyphenation in under an hour. Also: the only comment on this post is amazing.
Death And The Goon: How Comics’ Revolving Door Could Take a Lesson From The Goon #38 – This issue got pushed back a week, but don’t miss it; Eric Powell is doing things in this comic that no one else is, and it’s beautiful to watch.
The Real Princesses of ‘Fairest #1’: A Who’s Who Guide – I now know that three of these are wrong, and I REFUSE to offer a correction. Take that.
10 Things You Should Know about Comics – I’m told this got as many views as a “hotties” post, so take that people who say comics are only for guys, or something.
Paul Cornell Visits ‘Saucer Country’ For Vertigo [Interview] – Another fun book! Add it to your pull-list on Wednesday.
