Greetings, Nerd Bastards readers, Jake here from The Hall of Comics – where heroes shop. I’m a bag and boarded professional. My passion (and business) is to read, write about and sell comics. In an alliance forged in the stars, The Hall of Comics will be dropping by Nerd Bastards weekly, to bring you the latest word and the weeks best pulls in comics. So sit back, grab a snack, and check out what latest comic titles you should be reading. (more…)
Sometimes I sit down to think about things I haven’t covered yet in this column and just end up kicking myself for leaving something out for so long. Granted, I’ve only been doing this for about a year at this point, but sometimes that little comics nerd voice in my head just shouts “You idiot! You’ve been doing this for MONTHS and you haven’t covered THAT? You have no credibility! Give up now!” This is one of those times. If you’re talking about superhero comics published any time in the last decades (hell, the last three decades), you have to talk about Gail Simone and Nicola Scott’s Secret Six. Not only is it important work from two very visible female comics creators (and yes, that really does matter), it’s also an essential and ridiculously fun comic book.
