That time of the year has come where Top Cow unleashes its Pilot Season initiative to give new stories a try with readers for a possible ongoing spot on the publisher's roster. Four of the titles that will release over the next two weeks have been presented for advanced review, read on to find which deserve a vote with your dollars.
To say that Metallica is brave is both justified and dumb for allowing what sounds like a sexed crazed hobo yelling over their amazing new songs. 'Lulu' is a strange concept album composed by the world's most famous metal band and Velvet Underground front man Lou Reed. It is without a doubt the most absurd album of 2011.
What was my favorite movie of the summer has now become my favorite home release of the year. The Captain America Blu-ray not only lets you relive the excitement of amazing action film but offers some of the best special features of all of Marvel Studios' properties.
Catwoman #2 picks up where the first installment left off, and showcases the Bat-Family ally doing her best to return to her old tricks. For a book that's more flash than substance, it manages to entertain and keep my attention fairly well.
Be forewarned, this review has references to Dante, Marx, and Freud. Who says comics can't be smart? Don't worry, it has an engaging mystery story, some truly creepy horror, and wonderfully disquieting visuals.
The culmination of Marvel's event, Fear Itself #7 is as surprising as every other issue before it, and wraps just about everything up neatly. It's a satisfying conclusion to Matt Fraction's epic tale, where even things that he's been telling us for several issues wind up being shocking.
The final two volumes of this series' first season are available to take home this week. Long time Marvel fans and those just becoming Avengers fans will all take pleasure in this phenomenal show that wonderfully blends decades of comics mythology into a fast-paced and highly enjoyable new medium.
Butcher Baker: The Righteous Maker #7 continues to make sweet, sweet love with your brain. It's insane, it's depraved, and it's poignant. Joe Casey and Mike Huddleston create an awesome something that almost defies explanation, but I'll try.
