Host Derek Coward takes a look at the first two volumes of the Dark Horse manhwa “Shaman Warrior”.
According to Bleeding Cool (http://www.bleedingcool.com/2010/12/21/dc-comics-to-publish-marshal-law/) and creator Pat Mills, DC Comics is interested in reprinting Marshall Law. I am a long time fan of the book and would love to see it come back. I just hope a DC revival would mean that a lot of the non Epic stuff also gets reprinted. While I have most of the Epic, Apocalypse and Dark Horse printed stuff, I lost track of the character after Marshall Law: Secret Tribunal and had no idea he was printed by Cool Beanz, Image, or Titan Comics. There was also apparently a Marshall Law Omnibus printed by Top Shelf that came out in 2010. I need to find it.
There is also a really cool recap of the character’s history done by Josh over at Comic Attack.net.
Host Derek Coward talks about Finder by Carla Speed McNeil. I mangle the URL of the website (lightspeedpress.com, not .net) and totally get the name of the book I bought utterly and completely wrong. (It was The Rescuers, not The Searchers). However, in my defense, my heart was in the right place.
I will probably be going back to Detroit Comics to pick up some comic books today, but I went yesterday because I had a little bit of time and got:
Wednesday Comics #4 (DC)
Wednesday Comics #5 (DC)
Proof #22 (Image)
Dynamo5 #23 (Image)
Mysterius The Unfathomable #3 (Wildstorm)*
Groom Lake #4 (IDW)**
Atomic Robo: Shadow From Beyond Time #3 of 5 (Red 5 Comics)
Madame Xanadu #13 (Vertigo)***
Once again, nothing from Marvel or Dark Horse, but a bit more surprising to me, nothing from Dynamite Entertainment. This is the first time in a long time that I don’t remember getting anything from Dynamite.
* – I read the first issue, but can’t find the second one. I’m not sure if it is necessary in order to understand the rest of the series, but I guess I’ll find out soon.
** – I still can’t find the first two issues. I might switch this to trades.
*** – The Michael Wm. Kaluta art is starting to grow on me, but I want Amy Reeder Hadley back. I wonder if it is possible to have them alternate storylines or one do covers while the other one does interiors. Yeah, I know I’m being greedy.
Host Derek Coward finishes his look at the best of 2008 by talking about the titles that he has heard good things about but has never checked out yet, best miniseries that didn’t finish in 2008, best #1 comics of 2008 and the best graphic novels.
