My pick this week is the latest Generations installment, Captain Marvel and Captain Mar-vell. Brent has quickly become one of my favorite artists at Marvel Comics. His Howling Commandos of Shield mini series from 2015 reminded me a great deal of the books I grew up with in the 1970s. His style is reminiscent of Herb Trimpe with several dashes of Jack Kirby thrown in.

Yet his own style is gorgeous as well. He draws comics the way they should be drawn. His pencils show a real insight into the history of comics and evoke a great deal of nostalgia for me. The photo at left shows the artist himself (right) after he signed my book.

Go pick it up!

Group Pick of the Week

Pick O’ The Week (Action Comics #986)

Is it weird that I get a vicarious thrill every time Superman and the new and improved Lex Luthor team up to fit bad guys? The latest ish of Action Comics has just such a scenario and it is magnificent. Even more mega is that fact that we get a glimpse of Mr. Oz again as move towards the big fall event, Doomsday Clock.

Supes still doesn’t trust Lex (who would?) but the two work well together in combating the Machinist. Lex’s main drive is to be looked at the way people view Superman. It’s all about his ego, right? So, he as to be a hero.
