Something For The Weekend: Your Regular Round-Up Of News, Reviews And Previews

by Olly MacNamee

So, what have you all been reading on this past week? A good mix of previews, comic book news and more it would seem from our top ten-to-takeaway:

  1. We took a look at some Kickstarter campaigns last Sunday, with Reckless Comics’ Knights Vs. Pirates being a popular campaign. If you liked it, I hoped you backed it as it’s closed now. But, take a look at those art pages and look out for copies at UK comic cons next year. If there are comic cons next year, that is.
  2. Our weekly preview of 2000AD makes its triumphant return to our top ten most read columns of the week after a brief hiatus. Preview it all again right here.
  3. Sticking with 2000AD, publishers Rebellion announced a free bit-part 2000AD Encyclopaedia coming out with next week’s Judge Dredd Magazine 30th anniversary edition. Read more here.
  4. Our exclusive previews of Dynamite Comics seems to be hitting the mark with a lot of interest shown for Death to the Army of Darkness #2 from Ryan Parrott and Jacob Edgar. Seems there’s a lot of Evil Dead fans out there. Check it out again here.
  5. Scott Snyder and Tony S Daniel’s crowdfunding Nocterra is still maintaining a lot of interest in its second week of their immensely successful Kickstarter campaign with additional rewards and tiers added here.
  6. Image Comics announcement of new post-apocalyptic graphic novel The Fall by Jared Muralt which you can catch up with here.
  7. Reviews of comics old and new are a popular pull with readers as we looked at a number of titles from various publishers including a review of Betty and Veronica: The Bond of Friendship by Rachel Bellwoar here.
  8. Old comics are regularly given a dusting off in our new (ish) column, New to You Comics with Tony Thornley and Brendan M Allen looking back this week at Death Follows by Cullen Bunn and A.C. Zamudio. Catch their always entertaining two-way here.
  9. Another comic book we reviewed this past week was We Only Find Them When They’re Dead #1, which was a very, very popular review and very, very popular comic. Read Brendan’s thoughts on this debut issue here.
  10. And, one last review you leave you with: another review by Brendan M Allen as he takes an in-depth critical look at new graphic novel A Quick And Easy Guide To Consent from Isabella Rotman here.

That’s your lot for another Saturday. We hope you enjoy the weekend and, as ever in these uncertain times, stay safe.
