Bill & Ted’s Triumphant Return #1 is a comic that I’ve been waiting for since 1991! When we last left Bill and Ted, they had just won the San Dimas Battle of the Bands, and were on their way to musical greatness and changing the world as we know it. And, they lived happily ever after, right? Not so fast….

BOOM! Studios got writer Brian Lynch to tackle the, well, triumphant return of Bill and Ted, and they couldn’t have made a better choice. This comic truly captures the spirit of the Bill & Ted films, and moves the story along a natural path to what would happen next. And Lynch managed to find a logical place for all the characters that we loved in the movie: The good robot versions of Bill and Ted, The Princesses, Station, The Grim Reaper, and everyone else. With a cast so big, you’d think that someone would get lost in the shuffle, but thankfully, none of them do.

I’ve been waiting YEARS for Big Trouble in Little China #1, and the wait is finally over!!! Can this comic possibly live up to years and years of anticipation? Let’s take a look..

I’ve never read an Eric Powell comic, but if the rest of them are half as entertaining as this book is, I’m going to start. From a story by him and John Carpenter (director of the 1986 film), Powell brings back every man’s favorite every man, Jack Burton (played by Kurt Russell in the film). The book takes place about 5 minutes after the movie ends, and Powell shows us that the movie wasn’t really a special event for Jack Burton, it was just another day in his life.

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “The Spider” Henchman21 and “The Microwave” MK2FAC3 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 October 12, 2011. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

The ‘Wave is busy traveling to New York Comic-Con, so he’s a little preoccupied this week, what with packing his Batman costume and making sure he has enough Batarangs with him so he can fight crime on the streets of the real Gotham city, so it’s just your friendly neighborhood Henchman this week (I’m already stationed here in NYC for the week). “Wavey Gravy” does want to make sure you know about The All-New Batman: The Brave and the Bold #12, out this week featuring a team-up with Zatanna. Because it wouldn’t be a GoD list without MK talking about a Batman comic. Here are a few books I am looking forward to this week.

Comic Review: Kill Audio #6

Kill Audio #6 Cover BKill Audio #6
(Issue 6 of 6)
Created by Claudio Sanchez
Written By Claudio Sanchez & Chondra Echert
Art, Letters, & Cover A: Sheldon Vella
Cover B: Chuck BB
BOOM! Studios
Price: $3.99; Release date: March 10, 2010

By mk2fac3

Kill Audio, an invincible man lost in his world of Sight and Sound finally finds purpose and destiny as protector of all music. But what does this destiny mean? What must he do to keep all genres and sub genres in line? All of the things come to light in Kill Audio #6.

What more can be said about the fantastic world that Sheldon Vella brings to life with his art? I have read nothing but praise for his outlandish groundbreaking style that he first developed in the Zuda series Supertron. While incorporating an amount of crass imagery and an over-the-top style, Mr. Sheldon’s work is nothing less than stunning. That being said, it doesn’t take away from Sanchez and Echert’s writing in the least. In fact, Sheldon’s art brings their story to a living and breathing entity that immerses you into their world.

But don’t let the art fool you, the writing is stellar, as well. Over the past 5 issues, the story definitely has its highs and lows, but Sanchez and Echert really do a fantastic job of wrapping up the series in a fitting way that in no way feels unnatural to the rest of the story.

WonderCon 09: Video, Photos + Artist’s Alley Spotlight

Geeks of Doom Invade WonderCon 2009

While not nearly as exhausting or crowded as its San Diego counterpart Comic-Con International, San Francisco’s WonderCon definitely had a lot to offer comic book-loving geeks and movie buffs alike. The 3-day WonderCon 2009, which ran from February 27 – March 1, had a lot of the same panels as the recent New York Comic Con (probably because they happened to be so close together this year), but there were new panels (Pandurom, 9). There also wasn’t as many comic book companies representing out on the Con floor, very little gaming presence, and the least amount of cosplay of the three major conventions, but Artist’s Alley was nicely packed with some of the best indie artists selling their work.

Admittedly, there wasn’t a lot of breaking news, but you can check out Geeks of Doom’s coverage of Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Watchmen, and more at our WonderCon page. Below are some photos from the convention floor, of which I think my favorite is the one of Jedi Sherlock Holmes and Jedi Dr. Watson. The first row of images is from the Isotope Comics 100 Bullets party after the Con. I’ve also embedded a video roundup of the Con events created by my friend Alex of First Showing — watch for me as Alex points me out on camera near the end of the footage while we’re riding up the escalator together with Peter (of /Film) and John (of /Gamer) as we’re leaving the Con for the last time. Lastly, I’m including an Artist’s Alley Spotlight, which has some info on some of my favorite artists at the Con.
