Annihilator #1 review
Annihilator #1
Written by Grant Morrison
Art by Frazer Irving
Letters by Jared K. Fletcher
Legendary Comics
Release Date: September 10, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Annihilator #1 from Legendary Comics is one of those rare books in the last few years written by Grant Morrison that is not set in the DC Universe. There have been a few series from him, but by and large, if you’ve wanted to read something by Morrison, it has involved DC characters.

Annihilator gives Morrison a chance to step out and work on something of his own. It also gives Morrison the chance to work with a frequent collaborator, Frazer Irving, which has led to some great comic books in the past.

Watch Now: Grant Morrison Discusses ‘Annihilator’

Annihilator #1 by Frazer Irving

If you’ve ever read anything by Grant Morrison before you know that his comics can be the very definition of high concept, which is very much the case with his new series from Legendary Comics, Annihilator.

In the six issue mini-series drawn by Frazer Irving, Hollywood screenwriter Ray Spass is down on his luck until he is recruited by one of his fictional creations to help save the universe from imploding. It’s as close to your standard Grant Morrison plot as you can get. Combine Morrison’s writing with Irving’s art and you get a hell of a package.

If you want a little more info on this series, you can watch a clip of Morrison talking about the series’ origin as well as giving a good explanation of the plot below.

Higher Earth Banner by Frazer Irving

Boom! Studios has given us the exclusive on four covers for the upcoming Higher Earth #7 by two amazing artists, Garry Brown and Frazer Irving.

These four dynamic covers look to be a Cover A/Cover B sort of situation, but with a variant of each. The two full-color covers appear to be the main ones, while a black and white/gray tone variant of each is provided, one digital by Irving, and a heavily inked version by Garry Brown. I really look forward to seeing this comic on shelves, and if the covers are any indication on the interior art by Francesco Biagini and quality of the writing from Sam Humphries, I’m sure we’re all going to love it. In fact, based on the solicitation, it sounds like something I’d like to check out:

After the cataclysmic events of the last issue, Heidi seeks out an unlikely ally, one with an even greater stake in the matters at hand. But is this new ally friend or foe? And what connection do they have to the highest earth of all? It’s up to Heidi to keep one step ahead of the Queen’s forces as she struggles to keep everyone she’s ever held dear safe, and more importantly, alive…

Anyway, enough talk, let’s get down to some incredible artwork that’s debuting here!

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “Sheikie Baby!” MK2Fac3 and “Rowdy Roddy” 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 March 14, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Wednesday is THE DAY for new comics, and as per usual, Henchman21 and MK2Fac3 are here to tell you about all the books that they’re looking forward to. It’s another mirror image week where Henchie McHencherson and SK6Factory3 switch things up while one picks three singles and one collection, while the other does the opposite. I don’t know how much you know about how mirrors work, but that’s the way it goes, dollface. We’ve got a lot of books like Saucer Country, Queen Crab, Avengers Assemble, Saga, The World of Flashpoint featuring Batman, Womathology again, and so much more! Honey child, it’s a big week! Anyway, I don’t even know why I’m writing this, so I’ll see you back in a minute when we get to the meat of The GoD List!

GoD List Banner

Each and every week “The Undisputed Champion” MK2Fac3 and “The People’s Champ” 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 February 1, 2012. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

I’m going to just skip the BS and tell you that a lot of great comics are coming out this week, folks. We’ve got all sorts of great single issues and collected editions that are coming out of the woodwork to get you all twisted into a much more awesome and better-looking version that you were before. I don’t know how that’s possible, but I’m pretty sure that it’s what’s going to happen. Anyway, like I said, there are so many good books this week. We’ve got some awesome stuff coming in Dark Horse Presents, hopefully a good starting point for Animal Man, the second part of Superman’s origin in Action Comics, the newest issue of “The Best Comic In The World” Locke and Key, the second issue in what could be the best new comic of the year in Fatale, another strong candidate for comic of the year with Winter Soldier, and even more in single issues, you guys. That’s not even touching the collected editions, but we’ll get to that later. Some of the comics mentioned above will be chosen, but which ones are as yet undetermined, so read forth young geeklings to find what books that we have picked out for you… within The GoD List.

Holiday Geek Gift Guide: Batman Edition

Put on your capes and cowls, everybody! There’s pine needles on the living room floor, snow on the ground, and a scent of cinnamon in the air. Your dogs and cats are tearing apart wrapping paper, your family’s in town and you can’t stop drinking sparkling cider for some reason. That could only mean one thing, folks, it’s the nondescript religious holiday season! And that means that it’s time to go into credit card debt so that you can show those closest to you that you care, you know? And to make it a little bit easier on you guys, we here at Geeks of Doom have been shoveling our driveways so that we can deliver to you this, The Holiday Geek Gift Guide – Batman Edition! The best bat-gifts possible for the geeks on you gift-giving list!

As you can see, I’ve changed up the intro a smidge, and that’s simply because today we celebrate the holiday in the best way possible, with The Batman. Yes, The Batman. And while it may not make much sense to you that we’re doing this, you fail to realize that Batman makes everything better. In fact, the presence of Batman-centric holiday gift guide on this site makes not only this site better, but also it makes the world better. And isn’t that truly what the holidays are about? Making things better or something like that? Sure, why not! Anyway, it’s been a pretty big year for The Dark Knight, and that will certainly be evidenced by the majority of this list. We’ll also be making it a little easier on you by narrowing this list down by separate topics such as comics (and comic-inspired items), statues, Batman: Year One, and Arkham City. Sure there will be some overlap, but that’s all right because we’re talking about Batman! So let’s start of with the merriest of merries, comic books!
