The GoD List: Comics For September 19, 2012
Henchman21   |  

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “Bringin’ home the bacon” MK2Fac3 and “Will work for food” Henchman21 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of September 19, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Well, it’s another one of those weeks where there aren’t a lot of interesting comics coming out, at least ones that I find of particular noteworthiness. So, instead of talking about this week’s releases, I decided to take a look around Kickstarter and see if I could find any interesting comics worth your support. Over the last year or so, it has become apparent that Kickstarter, the crowd sourcing fundraising website, has become the next big thing in independent comics. It used to be that creators would have to put their time up front to create their books, but now creators can get cash up front and sell books directly to their customers, cutting out the traditional comic book store and everything that goes with it. There are tons of projects out there looking for money, and there is a project out there for all tastes.

Two projects that are ending soon (by which I mean today, Wednesday 9/19, so jump on these) are Detective Honeybear and Say Kimchi!. Detective Honeybear is an all ages comic featuring a talking teddy bear who is also a detective. I’ve read a bit of the series, and it’s got a charming art style and a fair bit of humor. It’s tough for all ages books to work in the comic market, and if that’s the kind of thing you look for, this may be the best way to get your fix.

The other project ending soon is Say Kimchi! Korean Food Comic describes itself pretty well. It’s a comic about different kinds of Korean food. Now, this is something I’m really into, not that I eat a ton of Korean food, but I do like food in general and I’m always looking to discover new kinds of food. I also like reading how food influences other people’s lives, because it is the most vital parts of our life. Food connects people, it binds families, and it is one thing that we all have in common, regardless of culture. Food is just fun to read about, and this is a project that I have donated to. Hopefully, I can get a few good recipes out of it as well.

Blast Furnace

Next up is Blast Furnace: Recreational Thief!, from writer/artist Ryan Browne. Blast Furnace is described as an improv comic. Browne worked on a page a day for six months, without any idea of what he was going to do with the story beforehand. Browne has now collected all 144 pages and is putting them all into a nice print edition. The preview pages look pretty funny and it reminds me a bit of Axe Cop in its insanity. It’s also a fairly inexpensive Kickstarter, since you can pay as low as five dollars to get a pdf version of the book or fifteen bucks for the print version.

Anyway, that’s what I could find today. If you know any other projects worth taking a look at, maybe drop a comment and give everyone else a heads up.
