Welcome to the month three roundup.
This month we had no Thumbs Down titles thankfully.
We had four No Thumbs titles.
This shows that even with a great writer, great source material or fresh ideas you can’t always get it right.
Covert Vampiric Operations: Volume One – Alex Garner
Covert Vampiric Operations: Volume Two: Rogue State – Jeff Mariotte
Fall of Cthulhu 1: The Fugue – Michael Nelson
Criminal: Bad Night – Ed Brubaker
We had nineteen Thumbs Up titles. A respectable figure and a mix of standalone and series titles.
Our Cancer Year – Harvey Pekar
Exit Wounds – Rutu Modan
How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less – Sarah Glidden
Covert Vampiric Operations: Volume Three: African Blood – El Torres
Jericho (Season 3) – Alejandro F. Giraldo
The New Adventures of Abraham Lincoln – Scott McCloud
Girls Volume 2: Emergence – Luna Brothers
Judge Dredd: The Carlos Ezquerra Collection – Various
Fort – Peter Lenkov
7 Brothers – John Woo & Garth Ennis
7 Brothers: Volume 2 – John Woo & Benjamin Raab
Kick Ass – Mark Millar
Defoe 1666 – Pat Mills
Bram Stoker’s Death Ship – Gary Gerani
Criminal: Coward – Ed Brubaker
Criminal: The Dead and the Dying – Ed Brubaker
Criminal: The Sinners – Ed Brubaker
Soldier Zero: Volume 2 – Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning
Soldier Zero: Volume 3 – Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning
This month we had eight Double Thumbs Up titles, more than ever before. Girls has to be the most successful series yet, I hope it wasn’t just for the nudity…
Girls Volume 1: Conception – Luna Brothers
Girls Volume 3: Survival – Luna Brothers
Girls Volume 4: Extinction – Luna Brothers
At the Mountains of Madness – Ian Culbard
45 – Andi Ewington
Criminal: Lawless – Ed Brubaker
Criminal: The Last of the Innocent – Ed Brubaker
Soldier Zero: Volume 1 – Paul Cornell
Everyone should read the Criminal series as it is masterful storytelling.
Everyone should checkout Girls as it is an amazing idea.
Anyone with a Lovecraft interest should get hold of At the Mountains of Madness as it is the best adaptation in any medium and has gorgeous art.
Everyone should marvel at 45 for showing just how different you can be in a graphic novel.
My star was probably Soldier Zero for its bold beginning. I just wish Cornell had stuck with it as the direction it promised would have been an interesting one. Even with new writer however it still didn’t lose its charm.
See you next month.
