Cream of the Cup
I admit it, I am late this week, But here are last is The Cream of the Cup, where I highlight the week's interesting books.
Dark Horse and IDW brings a double dose of Joss Whedon goodness with Buffy Season Eight #27 and Angel #24. I feel like it's Tuesday night on the WB
If that is not enough incentive, Angel 24 not only stars Spike's former love and all around crazy woman Drusilla, but the issue is also written Juliet Landau, who played Drusilla on the show (And if I told you that she is Martin Landau's daughter, is that something you would be interested in?)
War of Kings #6 finishes off the series with a finale by Abnett and Lanning (two of the greatest things to happen to Marvel's cosmic Universe) that is a game changer for the Marvel Cosmos. The issue is both spectacular and destructive. Paul Pelletier provides beautiful pencils.
Jimmie Robinson continues his great Justice League Cry for Justice Series with issue #2. New members are spot lighted. And did I mention how great it is that Mikaal from Robinson's Starman is back. Mauro Cascioli provides amazing photorealistic art on the book.
A certain red headed woman returns into Peter's life in Amazing Spider-Man #601. Let's see Quesada try to magic his way out of the logical conclusion to this one. Mark Waid does the words and Mario Alberti does the pictures in this installment of the almost weekly book.
Finally, Resolution Comics, a company I work with quite frequently and a couple of great guys have From Here to There #1. This focuses on anthology tales related to different means of transportation. For example, in the 0 issue, I wrote a story called "Economy of Scale" and featured an airplane. This issue has: a paratrooper who lands behind enemy lines and has to try to make it to safety on his own two feet; a murder mystery on the luxurious space cruiser the Orion Express; a bounty hunter and his beloved horse set out track and capture their most dangerous foe yet; as well as the real cause of the Hindenburg disaster. The writers are: Niall Presnall, Mike Banner, Jesse Steinchen and Alex De-Gruchy with art from Andres lomme, Gerry Fernandez, Jeff Mclachlan and Rita Gorgani. You should try it out and can get a copy from Indy Planet. In the interest of full disclosure I should mention that I will have a story called "the Haunted Rickshaw" in From Here to There #2.
