Mario’s Top 10!

10) Night Of The Living Dead Death Valley #4 of 5 (Avatar Press)
Writer: Mike Wolfer Art: Dheeraj Verma

What happens when a group of young adults travel the desert? Zombies of course! Avatar’s several Night of the Living Dead series have been my guilty comics pleasure for a while now. There is something about seeing C-Level horror staples of absurd gore and nudity wrapped around a not-even-semi-plausible plot printed out on paper that reminds me of the horror movie marathons I enjoyed with my friends several years ago.

 

 

 

9) Amazing Spider-Man #669 (Marvel Comics)
Written by Dan Slott, Art by Humberto Ramos

Who is it in Horizon labs that is an expert on Parker DNA? Will Peter come straight with Carly? Why is The Jackal such an ass? I hope all of these questions find answers as Spidey’s largest solo arc in years rolls on.

 

 

 

 

 

8 ) Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 9 #1 (Dark Horse Comics)
Written by Joss Whedon, Andrew Chambliss, Art by Georges Jeanty, Dexter Vines

I was never into this show at all. I know a lot of the isms as well as the inside jokes from the other people in my life as well as my trips to conventions all over the world but I can say that I was not a fan. Not for any particular reason, it just wasn’t for me. I will try this book though. Why not? A new “season” so I’ll come into the story fresh and I think I was more interested after hearing about who the identity really was for last “season’s” Twilight Killer.

 

 

 

7) Moon Girl #4 of 5 (Red 5 Comics)
Written by Tony Trov & Johnny Zito, Art by The Rahzzah

Old school adventure meets modern pizazz in this fun but wrongfully overlooked series as it comes to its close with one issue to go. This book is PERFECT for the non-traditional comic fans who are interested in the big time fun and the retro novelty found in the books of yesteryear where the cheese came in daily.

 

 

 

 

6) Fear Itself #6 of 7 (Marvel Comics)
Written by Matt Fraction, Art by Stuart Immonen

I was really excited for this series but the build up of the bad guy has gone on too long. Other series with tie-ins to this series have already moved on! I think this issue we finally get a payoff for out patience and that is why it is my #6 choice of the week. My rating for the next (and final) issue of this series all depends on what I see from this chapter.

 

 

 

 

5) Mystery Men #5 of 5 (Marvel Comics)
Story by David Liss, Art by Patrick Zircher

Marvel’s back-in-the-day epic comes to a conclusion as this hidden chapter in the 616’s history plays itself out. I have enjoyed this series but they are not fooling anyone if they don’t think we know at least one sequel is coming. I really like the use of retro technology and the use of what they thought technology of the future would be like during the 50’s.

 

 

 

 

4) Green Lantern #1 (DC Comics)
Written by Geoff Johns, Art by Doug Mahnke

Wait, so Hal Jordan isn’t even the Green Lantern in this issue? And Sinestro is? An interesting, yet predictably temporary turn of events as this series tries to recapture the magic found in the high octane run that was The Sinestro Corp War. I wonder what changes, if any, will be made to the series in this new DC Universe.

 

 

 

 

3) Red Lanterns #1 (DC Comics)
Written by Peter Milligan, Art by Ed Benes

I have been a long time of the Red Lantern Corp since their debut a few years ago and I have big hope for where their solo adventures will take them. I wonder what Peter Milligan will do to help move these characters out from under the shadow of Green Lantern to give his run a truly unique voice and not just another title unable to be all it can be because it is under Johns’ oppresive direction.

 

 

 

 

2) Daredevil #3 (Marvel Comics)
Written by Mark Waid, Art by Paulo Rivera

The last issue ended with what I can assume were trace echos of sound based baddie Klaw trapping our hero in a Klaw shaped machine that they are building. That was one hell pf an interesting ending in my book and I am excited to see how it progresses as the opening arc of Waid’s adventurous take on Daredevil rolls on.

 

 

 

 


1) Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #1 (Marvel Comics)
Written by Brian M. Bendis, Art by Sara Pichelli

After the death of Spider-Man and all of the media hype from Ultimate: Fallout I have been excited for a long time on the series’ new direction. While I will miss the old supporting cast as much as Peter Parker himself though I predict we will soon see Mary Jane make herself known to new Spider-Man Miles Morales in her new role as a journalist.
