Check out Rat Queens, by Kurtis Wiebe & Roc Upchurch (Image Comics)

Y’know, with all the comics I read, it’s weird to think how rare it is that a NEW comic can come along and really hook me. Everything I read is either derivative of some kind of nostalgia-based character or title, or it’s based on me following a creator I’m already familiar with to a new work. A ton of my friends had been on my case to read Rat Queens, and them trying to sell it to me didn’t really work (mostly because I’m not really a fantasy fan). But I finally had some time to sit down and read all 5 issues of Rat Queens, and man. I loved it. Super violent, super stylish, a great story with incredible art. Plus, a lot of cursing.  I’m not doing an incredibly eloquent job of selling it (on the road, gotta post quick!), but you should really just pick it up and read it. It’s incredible. Image Comics, killing it.

Check out All-New She-Hulk #1

In a weird way, She-Hulk was a book (and a song about the book) that I was always meant to write. For those who don’t know my personal history, I used to be a lawyer. I practiced for 3 years as a litigator in Washington, DC before I became Adam WarRock. True story, here’s proof. So I’ll admit, I’ve kind of always wanted to read a comic about a superhero that also was a practicing lawyer: whether it was Daredevil, She-Hulk or whoever. I always thought that the day-to-day lawyering (i.e. not the courtroom cases that Murdock was always involved in) would be interesting to see in that context. I’ll admit, I’m biased.

So when I found out that Charles Soule, also a former lawyer, was going to write a She-Hulk book and focus on her day-to-day grind as a lawyer, I was excited. But I don’t think I could’ve expected a book as good as this. I’ve never really cared about She-Hulk to this extent, but with the stories that Soule is writing and Pulido’s amazing art, I have to say that All-New She-Hulk has basically become my favorite comic, period.  It’s Hawkeye-level good. So even if you never thought you’d care about She-Hulk as a character, or a Marvel character who was also a lawyer, give it a try. You might be surprised.

I’ve had a great time making these All-New Marvel NOW! songs, and thanks to some of the creators (Slott, Allred, Smith, Amanat, et. al.) who supported and retweeted/blogged the songs about their respective books. The cool thing about Marvel right now is that the creators, from young to old, are so supportive of fan culture like this, and I’ve honestly only ever had positive experiences interacting with them. Hell, some of them have even become my friends.

So go out, buy some comics, and sit down and enjoy. They’re pretty awesome right now. And hey, come see me live!

“Spirit of Vengeance” [All-New Marvel NOW! week]

GHOST RIDER COVER

MARVELNOW

Mon: “Norrin Radd”
Tues: “The Fist of Khonshu”
Wed: “Marvelous”

Check out All-New Ghost Rider #1 I am on the road today, so I’ll have to be brief. But let me just say that this new Ghost Rider is without a doubt, one of the biggest surprises for me in the All-New NOW! slate. That Tradd Moore art is incredible, the design of the issues so far is striking, and the issues of Robbie dealing with the socio-economic and racial/ethnicity-based struggles via the police, his neighborhood, his family – it speaks to me way more than I ever thought a Ghost Rider comic could. That’s kind of the beauty of a lot of these Marvel comics (in the same way that Ms. Marvel book touches on similar issues), they’re not only about a flaming ghost skull-headed spirit of vengeance, but also about so much more than that. So go check it out.

Also, if you’ve never read Felipe Smith’s Peepo Choo, you should check it out.

Tomorrow: She-Hulk
