Patrick and Myles’ Comic Book Buy Pile 9/9/15

Neither Patrick nor I anticipate our little fireside chat reviews to be a thing of any kind of regularity, but we had a lot of fun last week sharing the duties over Jem #6. It was sort of an unsaid agreement that we probably wouldn’t try this again unless it was something we both felt extremely passionate about and could tear into. Well, it didn’t take long for that to happen because we began reading Batman #44 around the same time this week and began emphatically texting one another. Patrick & Myles: Batman #44 Myles: Batman #44 interrupts the “Superheavy” arc, touting…

Patrick & Myles Pick: {P}: So I figured instead of Myles and myself fighting each month with who gets to pick IDW’s “Jem and the Holograms” by Kelly Thompson and Sophie Campbell as their favorite comics, I would provide a place for us to settle our differences, and both gush over it. Issue #6 is on your comic book stands this week and we get what we’ve been waiting for this entire series: vehicles shaped liked musical instruments (and now a no spoilers review besides that major spoiler). {M} Yeah, I could not get over those designs at all. SO…

Myles: As I mentioned last month, IDW Publishing‘s Godzilla in Hell is a conceptual dream come true. My concern was as great as this concept was, the risk of it slipping into simple novelty with the subsequent issues would run high. But the fine folks at IDW retain the concept’s freshness, aided in part by their novel approach to the series: having a different creator craft each individual issue that chronicles Godzilla’s trek through various levels or domains of Hell. Noted sci-fi/fantasy/horror artist, Bob Eggleton, takes over the writing and artistic duties for Godzilla in Hell #2 to astounding results. Unlike…

Myles: Boom Studios has been celebrating its tenth anniversary in quite a fashion: by releasing some of its most creatively inspired and diverse original titles to date. 2015 has seen an amazing output from Boom, who can happily add Welcome Back the list. Welcome Back #1, which comes from Christopher Sebela and Jonathan Brandon Sawyer, details the seemingly dead-end life of Mali, a mid-twenties slacker stuck in  an endless rut. See, she used to be “normal,” until it turned out her dad was a serial killer and her world came crashing down. Now, having changed her name, she struggles to get by…

Myles: To the surprise of no one, my pick this week is Kelly Thompson and Sophie Campbell’s Jem and the Holograms #4. It’s been no secret how much I love the property and this comic, but Thompson and Campbell continue to outdo themselves with each subsequent issue. Thompson’s pacing continues to be one of my favorite aspects of this book. Each story beat moves along nicely, but she’s taking her time developing the characters, their relationships and the “origin story” of Jem and the Holograms. The whole of the first arc is feeling like an hour-long pilot episode as opposed trying…
