My favorite Wolverine issue is Wolverine #32 by Mark Millar and Kaare Andrews. In it, Logan is a prisoner in a Nazi concentration camp. Rather than dispatching Nazi soldiers, he opts instead to stand as a silent ghost, unkillable, no matter how many times he is gassed, shot at, or how long he stands outside, in sub zero temperatures. While the issue itself has a debatable concept, the key element, which Millar and Andrews nail, is the tone: we buy Logan as a nonviolent spectre because of how he is written, and how he is not written.
Charles Schulz is pretty much the lost Coen Brother of the comics industry. While everyone enjoys the holiday specials and precocious charm of Peanuts gang, lurking underneath is an honest look at our seasons of loneliness and doubt. Probably the most famous example of this is the Peanuts’ Halloween Special: It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
While thousands of geeks trolled around New York Comic Con looking for a light saber just the right shade of sea foam green, I was working. And yet, the brilliance of the interwebs saves me again! The best comics-related announcements are here at my fingertips, and now I pass that gift to you.
I don’t know what makes you happy, but my list is pretty simple. First and foremost, my summer would not have been complete without a little dancing Groot in my life. After that, the opportunity to get a little dose of creative cosplay helps. Fortunately, with the power of the interwebs, I can grant those gifts to you in one concentrated package.
