This is a very bleh week for comics. I’m only posting to draw your attention to Top Shelf releasing Are We Feeling Safer Yet?, which I really enjoyed.
Just when I started talking regularly about superhero comics again, DC and Marvel have little to nothing on their lists I’m interested in. From Marvel, I think I’ll give Wonder Man #2 another try. In a busier week, it wouldn’t make the cut, but now it gets the benefit of badly staggered shipping. (I know fan-favorite Runaways #23 is also due, but with the impending writer changeover… I don’t know. “Part 2 of 3″ of a final storyline might be good, might just be treading water.)
I tried browsing Tokyopop’s Pearl Pink, but I just couldn’t get into it. It’s the story of a tomboy who’s made herself strong and brave so the boy she had a crush on when she was three years old will marry her, as promised. This seemed to have cheesy potential, but either I was in the wrong mood or it was mediocre (or both).
From Viz, I’ll be getting Case Closed Book 15. It’s not an exciting read, but it’s consistent light entertainment that does what it promises.
