Dave’s Weekly Comic Book Recommendations

Sweet Tooth #1 cover by Jeff Lemire

If last week broke your wallet, this week is pretty light.

From DC/Vertigo we have The Nobody writer/artist Jeff Lemire’s ongoing series called Sweet Tooth. This one is about a boy named Gus who has deer-like antlers and is part of a group of kids with human/animal attributes that has made them immune to a recent pandemic. Its a little like the Vertigo epic Y: The Last Man and for a buck why not pick it up?

From Image we have the Chew reprints. I’ve been hearing nothing but positive things about this book, but have yet to even try it so I think picking up these four issues are a must have for me this week as well.

From Marvel, we have Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #2, which has beautiful David LaFuente art and the usual Bendis fun. We’re just going to have to face facts here, Brian Bendis will probably go down as the best Spider-Man writer ever and even though he is that, its not necessarily a terrible incident that you miss whole arcs as there is very little that ever happens.

Also, we have the profile book of Immortal Weapons #2. The last issue on “Fat Cobra,” written by Jason Aaron, was a gem of gluttony.  This issue is on the “Bride of Nine Spiders.”

As always, we here at The Flickcast care about what you read, so leave us a comment and let us know what you liked/didn’t like from this week’s comics. For a more complete list of what comes out this week, Midtown Comics has a great listing of everything.

Happy reading!

    Haha amazingly enough Dave, out of the 13 books I picked up this week I had passed on your 4 recommendations, but only passed on Chew because I am waiting for the trades on it. The Ultimate Comics line kind of scares me too.
