Comic Book Challenge Day 30

Comic Book Challenge Day 30: Favorite Series of All Time Batman & Detective Comics Batman is a badass. He’s always been my favorite hero. He’s the world’s greatest detective. He can beat up Superman. There have been so many classic stories in both the pages of Detective Comics and Batman that I have to choose them...

Comic Book Challenge Day 29: A comic you thought you wouldn’t like, but ended up loving. Superior Foes of Spider-Man I thought of going with Hawkeye on this day as well, but I didn’t want to reuse an answer again. Superior Foes was one of those titles that when it was announced, I just rolled my eyes. I thought it would be a serious tale of villains plotting some big heist or possibly being used as anti-heroes. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was more about what this particular set of villains gets up to between heist. It’s a humorous series, and it honestly...

Comic Book Challenge Day 28: Favorite Comic Publisher Marvel This was another hard choice to make. Valiant Entertainment would be a close 2nd right now. All of their books are quality right now, and I am really enjoying it all. However, Marvel is absolutely killing it for me right now. Titles like Thor: God of Thunder and Avengers are delivering some large scale epic story telling. The X-Men books are some of the most enjoyable all-around great books on the market right now. Other titles like Guardians of the Galaxy, Hawkeye, and Superior Foes of Spider-Man offer some hilarity and fun that...

Comic Book Challenge Day 27: Favorite Comic Book Movie Dredd The 2012 take on Judge Dredd, Dredd, is pretty awesome. There’s no origin story, and the plot isn’t overly convoluted. It’s just a cop taking out a rookie, and they have a pretty shit day. Well, for Dredd it’s probably just a normal day. It’s fun, it’s got some awesome action, and it’s only 90 minutes. Shorter movies are so rare these days, but it’s nice to just plop down for a short bit and get entertained without needed to set aside the entire afternoon. The 3D was also done...

Comic Book Challenge Day 26: A comic you wish they would make into a movie Essex County Again with the Jeff Lemire stuff!! I honestly feel that this would work as a three act movie. I see the first act being one without a lot of talking or much back ground music. Just the natural noises of nature. I feel it’s got enough character depth and emotion to grab anyone. If done right, I see it being a contender for an Oscar. See Day 12 for more on Essex...

Comic Book Challenge Day 25: A Book You Plan on Reading Underwater Welder Wait, your favorite write is Jeff Lemire and you haven’t read this? Nope, I haven’t yet. The thing is, I wanted to read it immediately, but I decided to wait. I want to read it when I can relax without the normal everyday worries hanging at the back of my head. It’s nice to have something that I haven’t read by Lemire available. I’ll be back in the US soon for a month long vacation, and I plan on reading it...

Comic Book Challenge Day 24

Comic Book Challenge Day 24: Dream Character Team Up Hawkeye & Green Arrow It’s nothing special, but I’d love to see a crossover done by Matt Fraction with these two characters. Maybe they get sucked into some temporal rift thingy, but totally ignoring that they would end up have a shooting contest and trying to one-up each other with their trick arrows. I think it’d be a fun book to read. That’s all for today.
