Wednesdays are the Sabbath for comic book geeks and readers all around these here United States and it is with great pride in America and comic books that I bring you another post of Wednesday Knight’s Haul – the brief list of indie comics that arrived from pre-order or I spotted on the shelves as I was serving up alms at my local comic book store, Legacy Comics and Cards in Glendale CA. Tonight, there were a couple that screamed to m from the shelves and a couple that had spoken to me from the pages of Previews.
The first book to catch my eye on the shelves tonight was Nowhere Men – it had that Jonathan Hickman white background that always catches my eye so I had to see if it was another of his titles. Alas, it was not but it was pretty and so, like a bobble on the shores of a scary yet giving ocean, I had to have it. Number 13 was the creepy, mostly black cover that starkly contrasted Nowhere Men, sitting right next to it. It was another #1 and I felt compelled to have it as well. And so they are both mine. Or am I theirs?
The next enchanting book that I will talk about is The Sixth Gun. I’ve said it before and I will of course repeat myself – the wonder team of Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt make me think that maybe there is something right about St Louis MO – I earnestly doubt it but if they keep churning out super-cool books like this, they can have their center of the country city and I will keep reading their books.
The last book in my stack is 12-Gauge Comics’ I.C.E or as it is otherwise called, Immigration And Customs Enforcement. I can’t say why I pre-ordered this book in the first place other than it might have had something to do with an itch for hardcore action comics. Maybe. Not sure. But now that I have the book in my hands, I’m happy to have a comic with a cover that nicely portrays Dwayne The Rock Johnson or at least his likeness.
OK, I need some dinner and some reading and an 8 hour nap.
Never Enough Said.
