New DC and Image Solicits

Because some of them are good and some of them are not good, but all of them made me think of words for me to type about. Let's start with DC, since the internet is all abuzz with their growing hold on a shrinking market (way to go, DC!) and their strange pairing of Morrison and Johns as creative consultants.

Pretty even with cheap computer effects

Wow. That's beautiful. That's awesome. This is one of the prettiest Cap Marvel pieces I've seen in ages. (It doesn't hurt that he's usually drawn in dour contemplation by stiff artists.) I look at this and get really excited. OH MAN THIS WILL BE AWESOME, I think to myself. And then I see the writer is that guy from the Real World, and, no, not the funny one. The one that writes comics I don't like. Somehow this is Alex's revenge for when I laughed at the idea of Johns writing Hal.

100% Asskick

This is just a nice, simple cover. I could go for more Kubert or Heath art, but this might be a good seller in non comic shops. Or not.

Wipe.

Nice hair, asshole

Outsiders: A generally well-rendered cover with EXPLOSIONS and NIPPLES and REALLY OUTDATED FACIAL HAIR! So if you like softcore action movies from 1994, here is something you will love.

dead meat in bad costume

I know he can turn anything into anything or something, but isn't Black Adam OR Amazo kind of overkill here, let alone both? Jesus.

Freeze!  HA HA HA HA HA I AM SO FUNNY HA HA HA HA

I just like the way Seth Fisher draws. A lot.

Booooooorn to be wiiiiiiiild

Hey, Bloomberg, maybe you should go on a road trip. AND NEVER COME BACK! OHHHHHH! POLITICS!!!!

Reminds me of high school

The Kev stories don't really do much for me, especially the gay humor stuff, but I have to say this cover is pretty funny.

Ew

So basically we have that scene from 80s movies/porn films always where the rich woman (you can tell she's rich because she wears pearls) goes from being uptight (glasses, hair up, a suit) to TOTALLY CRAZY (hair down, no glasses, near nude) except it's a uptightrichhornball superheroine? I'm sure it'll appeal to some folks, but . . .

Kubrick?

Huh. I really get the feeling there's more going on here than the first two issues would have me believe. Great cover.

dry rub

Wap wap wap wap wap wap wap wap awwwww, man. I'll have to wait a while. Looks great, though.

Joe, it's really creepy that we were doing the exact same thing upon seeing that Mister Miracle cover.

Thanks for mocking that Outsiders cover, Joe. It deserves it.

Also hideous is the JLA Classified cover.

Joshua Middleton is such a great artist.

It is great to see exclusive contracts that make sense.

Okay, Joe, I'll bite...who is "the funny one"?

The guy with one name, I think he was a skater or something. Puck? The few episodes I saw, he was the only person I could stand.

Nice site. I stumbled across it from CBR. If I had nerd powers that enabled me to insert pictures into my comics blog, I would be oh so happy.
