We’re Thankful For ….Comics!

Each and every day of this coming week, we’re going to be telling you what we’re thankful for! We work hard every day to bring you geeky reviews and as we do that, we find our favorites…the ones we are truly thankful for coming across our desks, in our inboxes, at the theatres and everywhere that geeky things tend to sneak into our lives.

Each day will have a different theme and hopefully will introduce you to some awesome that you might have missed as well as us showing our thanks for the amazing creators that are out there.

Now, let’s be honest…even with as many things as we cover, comics are the one thing that brought us all together. It shouldn’t come as any surprise then that our last days of thankfulness are all about just how thankful we are for the amazing people who create them...

Jughead #1

IN THE GRAND TRADITION OF COMIC BOOK REBOOTS LIKE ARCHIE #1, ARCHIE COMICS PROUDLY PRESENTS… JUGHEAD #1—FROM THE COMICS DREAM TEAM OF CHIP ZDARSKY (Howard the Duck) AND ERICA HENDERSON (The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl)!

Riverdale High provides a quality education and quality hot lunches, but when one of those is tampered with, JUGHEAD JONES swears vengeance! Well, I mean, he doesn’t “swear.” This is still Archie Comics after all.

Chip Zdarsky

Archie Comics

In the nicest possible way, Jughead Jones is a selfish man. Its part of his charm, but you can’t deny that more often than not, his altruism is brought about by his desire to maintain the rather comfortable life he has found himself in.

The true humour of Jughead #1 comes from Chip Zdharsky, ...

Book of Death #4

An evil Geomancer has torn the world asunder… The dark puppet master pulling the strings has been unmasked… And the Valiant Universe as we know it is being torn apart… The end is here! 

Now, not even the combined might of the Valiant’s best and brightest can avert the coming apocalypse – not without a sacrifice, that is. Who will pay the ultimate price to avoid the Armageddon promised in the pages of the Book of the Geomancer? And how will it irrevocably change the course of Valiant Universe?

For a series that I’ve been borderline on for it’s entirety, Book of Death ends on a high note...

Five amazing, interconnected new stories take the Doctor on a rollercoaster of threat and misadventure, as he investigates the mysteries surrounding his new companion Josie.

Doctor Who: Four Doctors #5

Can the Doctors and their surviving companions put time back on the right track?!

Titan Comics

The conclusion to the miniseries for year one of the three Doctor Who ongoing series currently running at Titan Comics piles on the time travelling tricks. But by delivering a solid ending, one that even brought a tear to my eye, it manages to elevate a somewhat average series to better overall.

The strength of this issue lies in the writing, which has our three Doctors (and one surprise cameo) combatting the villain of the piece whilst trying to set up events so they will always play out this way in the future, saving the timeline and all of the Doctors in the process.

How satisfied you feel about the ending is...
