Holiday cheer... in spandex! December 10, 2009 Posted by Mookie
Bunch of comic books came out yesterday, as they do every week, and I feel like talking about some of them.

Deadpool, written by Daniel Way, floors me every month. If you're not reading this already, you're missing out on some seriously funny stuff.

Ghost Riders: Heaven's On Fire is a great time on flaming motorcycles with angels and demons kicking ass to stop a rebel angel from doing what Satan couldn't. Rock and roll.

Deathlok has his own mini-series again and it's an even more disturbing version of an already creepy concept. I mean, a zombie cyborg with the living brain and consciousness of a man armed to the teeth with heavy weaponry is pretty creepy (and awesome) in its own right, but Charlie Huston has created a bloodsport-fueled future and an almost irredeemably corrupt popular culture that makes Deathlok seem like a children's toy. Powerful, splattery stuff.

I have to admit that the DC Comics Holiday Special was charming. The collection of short stories is nothing profound and I doubt it'll make you look at the holidays in a new way, but sometimes "happy holidays!" stories are a welcome thing. The most striking ones for me didn't include superheroes at all, but Sergeant Rock and Enemy Ace.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on and geek out.
