I'm not usually going to post on comics here on my blog since I feel that there are other places more qualified and better for reviewing comics than me. I tend to stick with my favorites, no matter how bad they might be sometimes, and am so far down the rabbit hole for them anything I say would be a bit on the fangirly side. But I'd like to take a moment to talk about 2 new comics I picked up today.
This first one's a little old, coming out back in April, but I just found out about it, Fanboys vs. Zombies. The cover caught my eye, so I picked it up to take a look.
At first I thought it was interesting, so I flipped the cover just to take a look at the first page. I believe my thoughts at the store were 'It opens in SDCC? I might have to check this out.' So it has a good openings, setting up the area this will be in, and minor backstory of a group of friends who go together every year. After that It gets a little confusing, with jumping to the person they were talking about just before to set their personalities(?) up. Then they finally all get together again, just in time for the zombie breakout. I like this one, even though it's a bit too dramatic at times. I never remember having time to talk that much while at a con, I keep getting distracted running after people to get pictures before they disapear forever. But that's just me and my opinion.
The second comic I got is Deadpool #58.

I know I'm going to get chastised for this one, but I' not ashamed. When he first came out, I was getting more into the Legion of Superheroes and didn't have the money to get more than one or 2 comic series with my allowance/spending money. After I did have the money for it, I never heard anything good about it. Not that I heard bad things about Deadpool, just that in my circle, nobody talked about him. I picked it up for two reasons. One was that the cover intrigued me, and two, by shocking coincidence, when I got home one of the fb pages I follow had a pic up from team up 886 with him wanting to be Hokage. After asking around, I found he's apparently awesome, and decided to pick this one up. Momentary confusion on why he doesn't look hideously scarred (Amon anyone? ^_^) is quickly put to rest by the 'previously on deadpool' third page. Also, this is the first part of the story arc that's going to be happening, so that's a good of a place as any for me to jump in. It seems interesting so far, Only one battle and flashbacks to the battle prep when necessary. I'm definately getting the next issue after Finding out who's going to be in it. I get to the last page and I'm all, 'Ahh! I know this guy! I remember him from my childhood!'
So that's what's new around here.
