Kaboom!
Release Date: June 6, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

When reading Garfield #2, it’s obvious that this isn’t just another younger readers book. Sure, it’ll appeal to kids, but I got just as much enjoyment out of it as anyone else would.

First off, Mark Evanier wrote for the Garfield Saturday morning cartoons in the ’80s. So, it’s clear to see that he has a fondness for the character and that he KNOWS how to write Garfield, as well as the rest of the cast. Let’s be honest, Garfield is a 3-panel comic strip (more on Sundays) and all that anyone remembers about him is that he loves lasagna, hates Mondays, and is lazy. In this comic, Evanier actually gives him some CHARACTER that totally fits in with everything we’ve ever known about him in the past, and yet, makes him a character that we’re just getting to know. As far as the actual stories go in this issue, it’s classic Garfield and some very fun stuff.

The Real Housewives for superhero spouses? Ugh, what a revolting concept! How stupid. How insulting. How the hell did they make this work?!

Appropriately enough, as I was reading this book my girlfriend was watching a Real Housewives show. I hate Real Housewives. I really, really do. I hate the way the shows are shot, I hate how shrill the characters come off, and I really hate how petty and materialistic all their problems are. I asked her during the commercial what the program’s appeal was for her. Buried beneath all those problems, she said, there’s the story about the complex and competitive friendships women have with each other.

When you put the show that way it starts to sound interesting. Throw in some guys with capes, trade the reality TV format for a comic, and I’m there.

BOOM! Studios ran a straw poll of sorts for the first time in comics history. In September, they stated that they would judge the winner by the quantity of comics ordered, even saying that any candidates or potential candidates with less than 1500 orders would not be printed. And the winner was: Decision 2012: Barack Obama #1.

Other qualifying candidates that made the cut were Sarah Palin (#2 even though she isn’t running), Ron Paul, and Michele Bachmann.
