A 5/5 Week

I haven’t read anything that I particularly want to talk about this week. Everything I read was awesome so I am going to talk about all the books i bought. This is going to be a short one.
This week was a great week for books for me. I read Constantine: HellBlazer #2, “Walk of Shame”, written by Ming Doyle and James Tynion IV, from DC’s post Convergence universe, and it was pretty good. Actually surprisingly good, this book seems to be back on track to its former glory. The art is also really suiting the story. The ghosts’ being back is amazing on its own, but the ghosts being drawn by Riley Rossmo makes it even better. I love this artist here and in his Image title Rasputin.
I also read Image’s Walking Dead #144, “…” by Robert Kirkman with art by Charlie Adlard and it blew my mind. I hate talking about this book because I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone but I can’t help it this time. The book is crazy, it’s always amazing and this issue was no different. The end of a chapter means death and fear. This book will always get my money.
Finally I also picked up Age of Reptiles: Ancient Egyptians #1 from Dark Horse. This book follows the adventures of a dinosaur, while he travels prehistoric earth. There is no dialogue, just page after page of gorgeous, detailed scenes and dinosaurs. This is a 4 issue miniseries and is well worth it.
I hope this trend continues. This week everything I bought gets 5 out of 5. Well done comics…. well done.
