Dave’s Weekly Comic Book Recommendations

Nobody_CoverThe colossal and beautiful Wednesday Comics hits stands this week for its first installment of twelve weekly issues. I shouldn’t really explain to you why you should buy this comic, but does Paul Pope doing an Adam Strange story do it for you? No? How about the 100 Bullets team of Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso doing Batman? Or Neil Gaiman and Mike Allred doing Metamorpho? I’ll stop.  For $3.99 you’ll get a newspaper sized issue full of great comics.

We’re big fans of Chuck here at The Flickcast. Especially me, I’ve been waiting for this collection for what seems like months. Written by series writers Peter Johnson and Zev Borow, it seems like this series was the first phase of trying out TV series as comics if that series would end up getting canceled. Thankfully, Chuck was not canceled and we still have this fun comic.

My final recommendation is Jeff Lemire’s The Nobody, published by Vertigo Comics and inspired by H.G. Wells’ The Invisible Man. I hear nothing but wonderful things about his Essex County trilogy and just as many wonderful things about this book.

As always we here at The Flickcast care about what you read, and if these don’t get you going, Midtown Comics has an excellent list of this week’s listings.  So, tell us what you liked this week in the comments section. Happy reading!

    I already picked up The Nobody today, good stuff man.

    I hear there are a bunch of privately published comics in process right now. I’m always looking for more comics to get into, anything great in the “very indie” world popping up?

      I would highly recommend Pixu by Becky Cloonan, Vasilis Lolos, Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon. For webcomics, I’m digging Captain America artist Mitch Breitweiser’s THE FUTURISTS [http://www.whoarethefuturists.com/].
