The Ghost Fleet 7 Cover

Blown. Away. I mean, like the first time you heard Joe Satriani’s Surfing With The Alien blown away.  Like when Terry Bam Bam Gordy rushed to the aid of former partner Michael PS Hayes to reform the Fabulous Freebirds kind of blown away.  Like finding out Bigfoot is real blown away.  (OK, granted, I haven’t discovered the legitimacy of Bigfoot, but man, if you did, you’d be blown away, right?)  That is what I’m talking about when I read Ghost Fleet #7.

I dig peanut butter. I mean a lot. I was practically raised on the stuff. I also really dig pickles. Love dill pickles. I can eat tons of them. I never thought of putting those two things together, but apparently, some folks do. (Including my Mother, which I find super weird for all kinds of reasons.) So imagine my surprise at how satisfying I found Archie vs. Predator #1. Bravo fellas. Bravo.

X #23
Dark Horse Comics

X 23 Cover

Reading X is like riding (insert your favorite thrill ride here).  You can’t just casually open the cover and leaf through an issue of X.  There’s too much going on.  You need to brace yourself, psych yourself up, and get ready for a full frontal assault on your senses.  This is a book that takes you to the edge and doesn’t bother slowing down as it blows right past that edge.  It’s a rush; it’s exhilarating; a little frightening; and so damned satisfying.

Lady Killer #3

LadyKiller3 Cover

If Bewitched and The Long Kiss Goodnight had a baby, it could very well look like Lady Killer.  Or just take Bewitched, and swap out Samantha for the Gina Davis character and you’ve pretty much have it… kind of… sort of.  I’d watch that.

Eight 1 Cover

I have to give it up to Rafael and Mike for coming out swinging with a great big awesome-weird stick and just plain hitting out of whatever passes for a park in a game played with a great big awesome-weird stick.  I dig time travel stuff.  I dig post apoc stories.  I dig alt history mash-ups.  Eight is all of those and more than all of them all at once.

Lady Killer 2 Cover

I can’t be the only one who got a Josie and the Pussycats meet James Bond on this issue am I?  If I am, I’m good with that.  (OK, that analogy only works if you swap out three piece all girl band for a one woman solo act, but still, she’s dressed up in cat ears and a tail and her name is Josie!  I mean, I’m not too far off here.)
