Graphic Novel

Comic X Novel = Malice

This book may be one of the craziest, most inventive things I've seen lately. Chris Wooding, author of Storm Thief, breaks some new gound with his book Malice. Half of the story is fiction and half is graphic novel, and the main characters travel between the two in a weird, fascinating mix. A few have tried this risky move and failed, but Wooding pulls it off with a story revolving around a comic book that you can go inside if you know the right ritual. Menacing things happen there, of course, once you do... This book is unique, and even has an eye-popping, raised cover image. Just, cool.

Ultimatum

The 'Ultimatum' event in Marvel's alternate timeline series 'Ultimate' has disappointed a lot of fans (a lot of heroes die, sometimes for inexplicable reasons...). However, there is one part of this series that somehow managed to escape a lot of the strange plot and is actually some top notch storytelling: Ultimatum Spider-man. It's tense and gripping, and handles the doom and gloom perhaps a little better than the rest. So, check it out.

Everybody Loves Zombies!

I don't know if you've heard, but Robert Kirkman's survival horror comic book series The Walking Dead is soon going to be a TV series on AMC! Really. I'm not joking. I decided to pick this up recently, and man is it entertaining. I recommend checking it out before the series airs. I'm hooked enough that I'm now digging into book two. Kirkman basically explores what might happen if a zombie movie kept the camera rolling. After the initial survival frenzy, what would it be like trying to live your life in a Zombie apocalypse? What would that do to people? It makes for interesting reading, let me say. Can't wait to finish book two and get into book three...

More Prince of Persia

You've played the Prince of Persia video games, you've heard there is a movie in the works, now read the graphic novel. It's written by the same creator as the award winning video games. The Prince of Persia storylines have always been some of my favorite bits of storytelling, and this new tale in graphic novel form is no exception. Check it out.

Dark Avengers Assemble...

The Dark Avengers...Marvel's latest crossover event. Who are they? Villains dressed as heroes, taking their name, doing heroic things...sort of. See all the twisted fallout. Do some rise to the challenge? Do some villains change heart? What dark things are they realy up to, and what about the real heroes? Look for all the answers in Dark Reign, and, on its way in September, Dark Avengers Vol. 1.

Blackest Night

Green Lantern has gotten a huge revitalization from Geoff Johns as it takes on an epic, action charged quality where heroes clash and sometimes die on a grand scale. Take a look at the Sinestro Corps Wars books and the newly recieved Rage of the Red Lanterns. It's all building up to the mega event Blackest Night, and it's got the DC fan base in a frenzy of anticipation. Check it out.

PX!

Just your ordinary story about a girl and her nuclear powered robot panda. PX! has enough attitude, witty one-liners, and, well, samurais on roller skates to keep you entertained for hours... Take a peek at the webcomic, or check out the collected books.

Final Crisis Is Here!

Final Crisis is here! You've heard the rumors: Batman dies?! Heroes are reborn?! Complex? Yes.  Confusing even? At times, yeah. But, you have to give Grant Morrison credit, this series is epic! The DC universe will never be the same.  See Morrison's interviews on the topic here.

Annotated Pearls

Pearls Before Swine Treasuries: Hilarious, irreverent, funny. The best thing about these treasuries, though, is the author's annotations. See what inspired each strip, wacky stories of reader feedback, and what Stephan Pastis thinks of his own work looking back. Includes 'never before printed' strips, sort of like deleted scenes, with the reasons why. It's a great insight into a comic artist's mind.
