Comic Bento’s theme for the month was “amped,” with everything being connected to music somehow. Besides being pleased that didn’t mean a Dazzler trade from Marvel, I think I got the most eclectic collection yet.
First up was something from Image called Put the Book Back on the Shelf: a Belle & Sebastian anthology. Review after the cut.
I’ve never really read anything by Aspen Comics before. Most of that was due to, well, the covers. The late Michael Turner was heavily involved with the company, and he probably more or less designed the company’s house look. His work tended to go towards willowy females in skimpy outfits. The handful of times I read stuff where he did interiors didn’t do much for me.
But, quite frankly, I tend to avoid comics where the major draw seems to be a scantily clad female on the cover. There never seems to be much going on there, so I passed. But, Comics Bento doesn’t just ship stuff to my tastes, so I have now read the first volume of a series called Lola XOXO.
Well, it was a fun 12 hours or so of speculation, but one of the classified zones on Battleworld will not be the Star Wars universe. The “Force” in Marvel’s announcement is not Midicholrian based, but in reference to A-Force…which I guess is some amalgamation of Avengers and X-Force. By the looks of the cover, it is a team led by She-Hulk and comprised of, well, seems like every female hero in the Marvel Universe. Girl Power!
