Three for Me – August 18, 2010

While there are literally dozens (sometimes hundreds) of new books that hit your local comic book shop every Wednesday – These are the three you can’t miss for the week of August 11, 2010…

Avengers vs. The Infinity Gauntlet #1 – Marvel Comicsavengers__infinity_gauntlet

I must be on some “all-ages” kick lately. It seems like so many of the books I am digging these days hearken back to my early comic days. Days when the bad guys we evil, but not too evil. I mean, they couldn’t win… Cause, you know, evil. But, they weren’t going around ripping folks into pieces or doing other rather unspeakable things to them. (Well, they might have been, but it all happened off panel). Avengers vs. The Infinity Gauntlet looks to follow in that tradition. While the story might seem all too familiar to old school Marvel fans. (Really, any old school comic book fan should know this one, even die-hard DC junkies, it’s a classic). The Avengers facing off against Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet is a great way to infuse some cosmic wonder and excitement in the young superhero fan in your life.

Ex Machina #50 – Vertigo Comicsex_machina_50

Wow. Once again Brian K. Vaughan takes the reader on one hell of a ride. In the summer of 2004 (yes, 2004) Vaughan, along with artist Tony Harris, promised a shocking event way back in the very first issue of Ex Machina. Today they make good on that promise with this final issue. If you’ve only been reading Ex Machina in the trades, something tells me this is still an issue you will want to pick up. Much like the ending to Vaughn’s other groundbreaking series, Y the Last Man, Ex Machina will have people talking for months to come. Normally I don’t get swept up in the “buy this comic, cause you’ll want to save it”. But, you know what… But this comic, you are totally gonna’ want to save it!

The Sixth Gun #3 – Oni Presssixthgun3

Six wonderfully evil guns? Check. A creepy ass madwoman? Yup. A quartet of relentless killers? You better believe it. Weird ass Pinkertons? Uh-huh. A shadowy Gunslinger with a rather dubious part? Yes’sir! Oh, and an undead Confederate General? Hells yes friend! It can only mean Sixth Gun is out and you gots some good readin’ comin’ your way. Now read it, or take a smoke wagon to the face sir!
