Colder Toss The Bones #1 (Of 5), $3.99
So the only Colder I’ve read previously was the series right before this one that featured the finger guy, Swivel. That comic was one of the most grotesquely beautiful, messed up, terrifying, awesome things I had ever seen. I gave me the heebity jeebs something fierce. However, I didn’t get that feeling from this issue. I think part of it is that the shock value has worn off. Reading that one issue in the last series was just a totally immersive ‘whoah’ experience because I hadn’t read anything like it before. Now that I’m more used to the style, this issue wasn’t nearly as impactful. I also just liked Swivel a lot better than Nimble Jack. Nimble Jack feels like a juvenile Joker-esque character. The archetype of the pale, crazed, clown has been so played out. I was a little let down by this issue.
Conan The Avenger #18, $3.50
Conan is up against an all female army with Janissa the Widowmaker at its head!
Zodiac Starforce #2 (Of 4), $3.99
I am a big fan of Zodiac Starforce so far. It has a bunch of equally awesome female characters with a wide variety of interests who are super badass and fight big monsters. It’s the perfect combination of action, teenage drama, fantastic costumes, and a splash of silliness. The fact that it would be perfect for younger readers makes me really happy too!
