Comic Book Noise 269: I Hate Telemarketers

Host Derek Coward was already planning a short show, but right in the middle of a pretty interesting point about Marvel and their event crossovers, he was interrupted by a phone call and lost his train of thought. Oh well, even though the show is less than ten minutes, it was still pretty good up til that point.

What I Got – 04/28/2010

Spell Checkers GN (Oni Press) – I ordered this after seeing Joelle Jones’ artwork on Madame Xanadu. Or to be more precise, I ordered this after seeing the second issue of Joelle Jones’ artwork on Madame Xanadu. I was a bit ticked off because it wasn’t Amy Reeder Hadley doing the artwork on that first issue and my view of the artwork was admittedly biased against her. When the second issue came around I was able to appreciate it for what it was, pretty damn good. Add on top of that, I have never heard anything but good things about the writing of Jamie S Rich, so this was pretty much a no brainer for me. I am looking forward to reading it and I will definitely be talking about it on a future episode of Indie Comic Book Noise.

Codebreakers #1 (BOOM! Studios) – I was leaning towards picking this up based on the preview pages in the back of Irredeemable and Incorruptable, but the recent review done by JM Campbell cinched the deal for me.

Fantastic Four 578 (Marvel) – Last week I dropped Daredevil to go to trades. That leaves Fantastic Four as the only Marvel title I currently have on my pull list.

Kevin Smith’s Green Hornet #3 (Dynamite Entertainment) – I am getting all of the Green Hornet books and so far they have all delivered.

Madame Xanadu #22 (Vertigo) – Amy Reeder Hadley is back for a few issues, so I am going to savor it while I can. I think I heard she may be leaving the title altogether. That sucks but I am ready to follow her to her next assignment.

Stumptown #3 (Oni Press) – I don’t know if this is a mini or an ongoing and I really don’t care, it is Greg Rucka writing a kick ass female detective.

Philip K Dick’s Electric Ant #1 (Marvel) – I am enjoying what BOOM! is doing with Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep (a story I am nominally familiar with) so I am curious to see what Marvel can do with a PKD story I have never heard of.

Fall of the Hulks: Red Hulk 4 of 4 (Marvel) – I picked this off the rack like I have done with every other Hulk related book I have gotten since World War Hulk. I am enjoying this miniseries so far and I doubt if Jeff Parker will let me down now.
