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…

TMYN’s Comic Book Buy Pile 6/24/15

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…
