A Comic Show – A Week Of Hyphens

Aaron Haaland of A Comic Shop in Orlando, Florida, writes;

It’s great to be back from Heroes Con and better to come back to some of my favorite comics!

The biggest book of the week is Hit-girl, but Nite-owl and Spider-men are close seconds. Hit-girl is a prequel to Kick Ass 2 and has her trying to fit in with her school’s mean girls. I’m hoping it turns into Heathers with heroes!
Spider-men continues the novelty of Parker and Miles. This book is pure fun and proves that with Miles there is a story to be told between 616 and Ultimates. I just hope this doesn’t lead into Nick Furies!

Before Watchmen Nite-owl is JMS and the father and son Kubert team that just makes the legacy Nite-owl tale have more gravitas. I’m the guy enjoying Before Watchmen or at least the one admitting it!

DC had Johns’ Justice League and Aquaman both ramping up villains, but my pick of the week is Jeff Lemire’s JL DARK! I gushed fanboy praise on to him at the hotel bar Friday night, and now JL Dark #10 has me crushing on him harder.

The creator owned books of note are Fatale now in it’s first collection. It’s Horror Noir by Brubaker and Phillips, great things that go well together. Finally, Morning Glories volume 3 is out, the answers start here!
