A Comic Show – The Dark Knight Grayson!

Hey Fandom, I'm Aaron for A Comic Show with a stack of new comics now! DC's new wave of books starts here, Spidey 2099 and Deadpool have their day, and Walking Dead isn't nearly as gory as Spread!

DC's Grayson #1 was a solid execution of the Dick as Archer premise. Sure, I'd like him to be Nightwing as much as the next fan, but this was a fast paced entertaining read with a surprise guest star and a neat twist at the end. So, even though I wasn't for it before I read it, Dick's charm and charisma run way deeper than his mask and costume. New Suicide Squad #1 again wasn't something I was excited about from the line up and preview pages. I mean, I don't have a Big Mac and a Whopper for dinner and then wash it down with a Coke and a Pepsi. So why do we need Harley Quinn and Joker's Daughter with Deadshot and Deathstroke on the same team? Well, that's answered here. And Vic Sage is here too from the second page turn. There were other books I talked liked this week, but you'll have to watch the video for my clever analysis.

Peter David's Spider-Man 2099 is worth reading just for the nostalgia feels. Deapool fights vampires again, and more Original Sin tie-ins came out. Justin Jordan's Spread is a post-epidemic Mad Max Lone Wolf and Cub. (That means it was bad ass). And Joshua Hale Fialkov's The Life After from Oni hit my soft spot for suicide fiction because my life is full of regrets.
