This… Week… In… Comiiiiiics!

CHOKER02covsolicit

Short and sweet this week, kiddies, momma’s still in lazy vacation mode.

However, I would like to direct you to your #1 ‘must read’ for the week, Choker. It’s issue 2 and issue 1 has run through it’s first printing, but borrow it from your friend who is hipper than you. Anyway, this sci-fi laced detective story is GOOD. Ben McCool’s dialogue is on-point and, though Ben Templesmith’s art is way different from his 30 Days of Night stuff, it’s frickin’ gorgeous. I’m on a Ridley Scott film comparison jag this week, so yeah, “Blade Runner.” It’s a 6 issues limited series and so I would usually just wait for the trade, but I’m stoked on reading this every month, it’s really worth picking up.

Full list and another recommendation after the jump:

Your other ‘must read’ this week is Locke and Key ‘Crown of Shadows’ #4. I really like the ideas of secret rooms/doors in creepy old houses and innocent kids pitted against diabolical, supernatural creatures, so I am predisposed towards liking this book. And if you also enjoy those things, you will be too. The first two arcs are collected in trade and you don’t HAVE to read them to get into the story, but it’s suggested because it shows you the richer underlying plot details. And they’re also really good. I love Gabriel Rodriguez’s art, he was perfect for the adaptation of Clive Barker’s Great and Secret Show and the same skill that worked for that series work for this one: to draw the supernatural believably and get creepy without being too cartoon-y. Think “the alien bursting out of Kane’s stomach in ‘Alien’”… yeah, NOT like that.
