Weekly Comics Discussion – Wednesday, October 12, 2005

This week’s shipping
list
includes Essential Spider-Man Vol. 7
and Essential Werewolf by Night Vol. 1, which
are the only two items I’ll be taking home this week.
(I won’t be ordering further volumes of Essential
Amazing Spider-Man
, Essential Fantastic
Four
or Essential X-Men, either, thanks
to the DVD-ROM versions.) Other items of note include
Exiles #71, the first issue of Peter David’s
Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man (which
kicks off the 12 part “The Other” storyline, which
will run through all three Spider-Man titles until
January, and which has a single writer handling all
three titles for the first month), House of M
#7
, Ghost Rider #2 (along with a
“Director’s Cut” edition of Ghost Rider #1),
Ultimate X-Men #64, the Green Lantern
Rebirth
hardcover (which I do recommend but
haven’t reviewed yet), Infinite Crisis #1,
and the Astro City: Local Heroes TPB.

    Star Wars Fans Rejoice!

    Beginning in January, Dark Horse is starting a new monthly series, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. It’s set 4000 years before the movies, in the same timeframe as the KOTOR video game and several previous mini-series. More information on the new series and other upcoming projects is available here and here.

      An Infinite Number of Crises
      I’ll likely review Infinite Crisis in three stages, starting with #1 this weekend. How do people feel? Will this be change that increases interest in the genre, or just lots of marketing that will mostly affect the fannish?

        It’s hard to say. This first issue felt like it was 75% recap of the minis combined with 10% Crisis on Infinite Earths and 15% setup for the series. It’s very exciting if you know the history, but there’s a lot of it. This story is based on recent events, plus those from 20 years ago. Johns is an amazing writer, so I’m interested in seeing how he plans to bring this all together.
