Wednesday is almost here and this week sees another host of books hitting the shelves- albeit most of them creator owned and with that in mind lets look at what you should be buying this week.
Official Synopsis: Freddy’s in trouble.
Why its a Pick: Wolf has been great in the first two issues at building a unique and intriguing world, alongside several key characters that you already care about and wan to discover more of. This book should be on everyone’s reading list if you love the comic book medium as it holds so much promise and has delivered on the story so far, I personally only see this getting better and that’s why it makes my list. Ohh yeah and there’s ghosts, vampires, werewolves and all sorts of odd powers in the general public too- this book is insanely intriguing and brilliantly delivered.
Official Synopsis: The soul-destroying origin story of the man known only as “Nameless” is uncovered in all its horror. What caused “Nameless” to surrender his identity? What are the sickening secrets of the Razor House Project?
And what went wrong in there?
On the eve of extinction, all is finally revealed.
Why its a Pick: It feels like its been an eternity since Grant Morrison graced us with an issue of his total insane yet brilliantly engrossing Nameless, and to be honest that’s only helped rev me up for this issue. Morrison is so off the wall with his current sci-fi book here that I have no idea where he’s going next but im ,loving every moment of the ride. He’s managed to mix science fiction and mysticism brilliantly into this apocalyptic tale, to the point I cant wait to see where the story twists off to next.
Fight Club #5
Official Synopsis: Since he was discharged from the mental hospital, Sebastian has been a do-nothing cog in the world’s largest military-industrial corporation: Rize or Die. Marla searches for clues among the various clubs that have spun off of Tyler’s original fight clubs, and she discovers that Project Mayhem is not a boys-only enterprise — not anymore.
Why its a Pick: This book has been better than I imagined, it has added to the original story and grown its own legs and stands up pretty well as a solo tale so far. Marla is still brilliantly depicted and her ability to get others to help her last issue and use the dying wishes of kids to try to root out Tyler was amazing and hysterical to see. I’m really looking forward to what we get this issue with both Marla, but more importantly what Sebastian has planned for himself and his other alter ego.
Book of the Week
Wolf steals it this week, with its amazing world building and the engrossing story telling. It was a close call with the other two, but this book has me the most excited right now.
