February 27, 2017 | Comments (0)

The January MKE Creatives was a fun, easy topic to talk about: What have you read in the last 30 days? Here’s what the gang had to say…

1. Molly – Ms. Marvel: Civil War II trade-paperback – “the story was dealing with racial profiling and “precrime” arrests at a time when I’m thinking a LOT about civil rights and such.”

Invincible Iron Man #2 – “it was neat to see a girl outsmart a Tony Stark-designed artificial intelligence”

2. Andy – “I’ve been picking up stuff randomly at Half-Priced Books,…and I got DC’s Identity Crisis trade. I had >no idea< I could feel so MUCH in a comicbook.”

Green Lantern: Blackest Night trade

The Unbeatable Squirrel-Girl trade of her early appearances . “USG is the one comic maybe 6-7 of us here buy every month!”

3. Chris – the latest issue of Spider-Woman, which that dealt with the relationships between Porcupine, Spider-Woman, and Ben Urich.

A.D. After Death – “takes place in a world where death has been cured…so there’s people who are 800 years old.” Written by group favorites, Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire.

The Fix, about two crooked cops and a drug-sniffing beagle.

4. Kate – Vol. 1 of Descender – “Dustin Nyguen is SO good.”

Plutona – written by Jeff Lemire – “some kids go into the woods and find the dead body of a superhero – and THEN it gets horrifying!”

Buzz – the story of a young boy who’s walking to school when he stumbles across a back-alley spelling bee.

5. Amber – DC’s The Flintstones is “on top of it! It’s top-notch!”

Sex Criminals Vol 1 – I keep re-reading it because it’s just that good and funny.

6. Me – Wonder Woman: the Twelve Labors – a trade reprinting some classic 1970s adventures of WW.

Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme – a great, unusual team book about magicians we’ve mostly not heard of before.

Squardron Supreme: Timely Comics – Marvel is doing a neat thing here, reprinting the first 3 issues of certain titles, then selling it at a very reasonable price!

Detective Comics – as it’s transitioning into Batwoman

11. Don – No Mercy – “there’s lots of threads going on as the kids try to survive the bus crash.”

Kill or Be Killed – “the protagonist tries to commit suicide, mysteriously survives, then learns he has to kill someone once a month in order to not die” and it goes from there!
