heather_staff_picksHEATHER’S PICK :: RASPUTIN #1: There were so many points in Russian history that I found absolutely fascinating when I was in school.  The Romanovs in particular were very interesting, especially in light of their association with Grigori Rasputin, rumored mystic and faith healer and adviser to the Tsar.  Rasputin’s rise in the Russian aristocracy has all the makings of a modern day soap opera: alleged affairs with the Tsarina and other princesses, the close friendship with the Tsar who brushes off all allegations, the seemingly miraculous healing of a sick and adored child, and multiple conspiracies to commit murder.  Even Rasputin’s death is still shrouded in mystery as who ultimately killed him and how. Poisoned, shot, stabbed, beaten, drowned, or all of the above? Was this mystical figure really that hard to kill?

I can’t wait to see this story brought to life in a comic.  Image has found excellent footing in the genre comics section with sound exploration outside of the tights and capes that many non-comics readers expect.  Writer Alex Grecian and artist Riley Rossmo sound like they have done their research into the convoluted world of Rasputin and it looks like they will have a twisted tale to share and I look forward to following along.
Rasputin-01 justin_staff_picksJUSTIN’S PICK :: DMC GN #1: DMC is likeMarvel’s What If? mashed up with Ed Piskor’sHip Hop Family Tree. Set in 80s New York, as hip-hop took root in the streets and branched out into the suburbs, DMC #1 examines what would have happened if Darryl McDaniels opted to become a vigilante superhero instead of an emcee. Upon further consideration, there isn’t a huge gap between superheroing and conscious rap: both strive to change the world around them for the better, usually employing some sort of colorful costume/shtick/moniker. That parallel is at the heart of this particular funnybook.dmcandy_staff_picks
ANDY’S PICKS:
Agggghhh!! It’s too much! Too many great classic reprints.

PEANUTS EVERY SUNDAY HC VOL 02 1956-1960| $49.99
POGO COMP SYNDICATED STRIPS HC VOL 03 EVIDENCE CONTRARY| $45.00

You can’t go wrong with any of these titles, but if I was forced to buy only one (not gonna happen, Cap’n!!) my first recommendation would be the Peanuts Sundays followed this/close by Pogo. But any Peanuts or Pogo will do and even though Dilbert doesn’t belong in the league with those other classics, it is consistently one of the funniest strips being published today.

IRON MAN EPIC COLLECTION TP GOLDEN AVENGER| $34.99

Wow, what can I except Christmas is right around the corner. I will let our esteemed manager talk about HtD. My recs are 100 Bullets and Preacher–two great series that remain in print and deservedly so. But you gotta love the antique Iron Man tales and Don Rosa once again does Duckburg proud. Wolverton is a genius and just a passing glance at this Artists edition proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt.
