Comic Picks By The Glick

Jason brings his expert opinon to the world of comics
I look at several recent releases, and one old one, to determine what makes a comic scary.

Featuring criminals, lovers, madmen, graphic violence, clever plans, and laugh-out-loud moments throughout the list, and all together in the year's best read.

John and I talk about the winter's BEST superhero movie while I go on about the comics that inspired it.
[DELETE] [EDIT] MP3
The stories that inspired the movie aren't bad, even if their defensiveness does them no favors.   (And if anyone's wondering what I thought about the movie, I'll just say that it was fine.)

Does Kodansha's second manga-based anthology from international creators fare any better than its first?
[DELETE] [EDIT] MP3
Should I hold out hope that "Gideon Falls" will turn out well after the endings of "Descender" and "Royal City?"

John and I tackle a "Batman" story that does a lot of interesting things, but doesn't really take any of them far enough.
[DELETE] [EDIT] MP3
It has its faults, but this series is still a captivating, magical take on the "Beauty and the Beast" setup.

The latest series from Brubaker and Phillips is (unsurprisingly) really good!

The true stories of Andre the Giant, Andy Kaufman, and Tetris make for excellent reading in this graphic novelist's hands.

My thoughts on Matt Kindt's so-so follow up to "Mind MGMT."
[DELETE] [EDIT] MP3
It's "The War of the Worlds" by way of "The Wind in the Willows" and exactly as fun as that sounds.

Why do a major "Doctor Strange" story in the pages of his ongoing title when you can spin it out into a mini-event instead!
[DELETE] [EDIT] MP3
Shiga's four-volume epic is as entertaining as it is depraved!
[DELETE] [EDIT] MP3
BEHOLD, the manga sitcom that wants to tell a serialized story but with characters too one-dimensional for it to work!
[DELETE] [EDIT] MP3
Three different "Avengers" titles wrap up their runs in this perfectly serviceable event series.
[DELETE] [EDIT] MP3
Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo follow up their classic "Batman" run with this event series that's the definition of "good, but not great."
[DELETE] [EDIT] MP3
I go back to our first podcast to give a full accounting of this strange and fascinating series that's maybe a bit too hopeful for its own good.
[DELETE] [EDIT] MP3
I go back to our first podcast to talk about some of the best licensed comics around.  Mostly in the first omnibus.

Follows on from this, and this.  I kept digging for more and this is what I found.
