Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

I also picked up Ivar, Timewalker #1 from Valiant as well as The Valiant #2.

I really, really enjoyed Timewalker #1 for a number of reasons: the energy, the dialog, the humor the Rai #1 cameo. Good stuff.
I highly recommend this based on issue #1 alone. You need not be versed in any backstory to dive right in to the character.

I should've read Valiant #2, and will tonight, but still had Star Wars #1 hanging over from last week. I have no plans to get the series but did find the art and story in the first issue very well done. Even with that cliffhanger I'll just wait for a trade.

Speaking of, I got the Marvel Star Wars vol.1 Omnibus and it is a nicely put together book!

Yes, The humor in Ivar, Timewalker was good. Although they missed a golden opportunity to explain were all those missing socks from the dryer go.

I think I missed The Valiant #2. I thought it was on my pull list but it turns out it wasn't. I'll have to head back to my LCS to pick it up. I enjoyed the first issue.

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

The VALIANT #2 - The Immortal Enemy took on some creepy appearances and was demonstrating his hype as this evolving unstoppable monster. I must say the creepy Mr.Flay that Kay saw was the most impactful in terms of suspenseful danger. Solid art and story, just two issues in I'm liking the pace and very curious where it goes from here based on that last panel of "calling in the reserves".

TMNT #42 - Part two of Attack on the Technodrome, I really enjoyed the two pages that played catch up with the reader about what we thought we knew, vs what had happened "off panel". I felt from a script perspective this had a cinematic feel to it, well done. All TMNT fans should be reading this book.
Side note: in the letters column the Editor mentions that Color Classics vol.4 is coming for later this year. In case anyone else was wondering or is acquiring this Hardcover set like me.

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

I just read "The Valiant #2" and am really enjoying this book even aside from Lemaire's writing. I might use it to explore the Valiant Universe a bit more. The art is just beautiful as well and Lemaire is crafting an interesting story.

Re: JD's Comic Book Thread

I just finished it too and quite liked it as well. This is the second Valiant limited series I've read, the other being Armor Hunters, and I'm very intrigued by the valiant universe. There seem to be some really good stories out there. I've also picked up the first issue of Ivar, Timewalker which was also a good read.

Jonathan Hickman's The Dying and the Dead #1 was really intriguing. Gorgeous art too. Where does this man get all of his insane ideas?

I was eyeing that up at the shop yesterday. I think I'm going to go back and pick it up.
