Weekly Recommendation: ‘Sandman’

Once again its the start of the week, and time for me to recommend something else from the world of comic books to get you through the next week, and this week its a classic from a man who not only writes some of the best comic books in the industry but also some of the best fiction out there: ‘Sandman’ by Neil Gaiman.

With ‘Sandman’ returning earlier this year with its first new story in 20years, and boy was the first issue great, i thought it was only right to recommend the first story where all the excitement was formed. Continue reading

Comic Book Picks 30 October ’13

ComicBooks 28/8

So this weeks books are on the shelves- but what should you buy?

Well I’m here to give you my ideas

Uncanny Avengers 11

ImageThe Raganarok Now saga continues in this issue, and i have to say that Rick Remender has done a great job of building this since his run on ‘Uncanny Xforce’ and to see it finally come to fruition is amazing.

The new apocalypse twins have their plan in full effect, and with the reveal of the new Horsemen last issue (if you ignore the last page spoiler in issue10) the story has just got more personal.

And as always Acuna’s artwork is flawless as he really draws emotion into each of the characters, and for this story thats a real must.

If there’s one book you should buy this week its this one.  So here’s the official synopsis from Marvel:

The dawn of the Celestial Executioner.
The death of all hope.
The rebirth of a fallen son.

Do you possibly need more- just buy it Now.

Secret 3

Well its been a long time since Imagewe saw an issue of this book, but its just as good as any of the other book that Hickman writes- and have taken precedence recently. Its rare that we get a real science fiction comic book, and this is definitely looking set to change that and i couldn’t be more excited.

This issue promises to unveil some clues as to who Steadfast is working for, and continues the mystery of the sound waves screaming “follow the money’

If you ever liked the X-Files of Fringe- then this is definitely one for you.

 

 

Sandman Omnibus 1

ImageOk, this one is a no brainier.  If you don’t already read and own Sandman, then here’s your chance, before new issues later this year.

This collects issues 1-37 and then the Sandman special 1 issue.

Upon his escape from captivity at the hands of a mortal, Morpheus must deal with the changes within himself and his realm. His journey to find his place in the world takes him through mythical worlds to retrieve his belongings, the backroads of America for a twisted reunion, and even Hell itself.

This is a true masterpiece of the comic medium delivered brilliantly by Neil Gaiman (one of my favorite authors) and is worthy of a place in any ones collection.  The story is thoroughly engaging and every moment has you wondering where its going next and how it could possibly end.

So thats it for this week.  For a full list of this weeks releases check out the address below:
