Wanted

This time around: dolls in the sky, nobles in the dirt, frank rocks in the art house, and Eminem’s in your face with a gun. Plus, “Art Thou Not Tyler Durden?”, dead men don’t wear capes, a general inability to refrain from our geekery, an almost certain overuse of the word “anyway”, and a big “Bongiorno” from the Italian Spiderman.

A MAJOR SPOILERS THANK YOU GOES OUT TO DAVID M. and ERIC M. FOR DONATING TO THE SHOW! THANKS GUYS!

NOTE: Because of the nature of the content contained within the Wanted title, there are some strong words that earn this podcast an Explicit Tag. In other words, if you are offended by four letter words, you probably shouldn’t listen to the last 15 minutes of the show.

REVIEWS
Rodrigo: Sky Doll #1 (Marvel Comics)
The internationally acclaimed best-seller is now finally presented in English! Meet Noa, a so-called Sky Doll; a life-like female android without rights, who exists only to serve the State’s needs and desires. But when Noa meets two so-called “missionaries” who aid in her escape from her tyrannical master, all hell breaks loose for our cyborg siren as she uncovers clues that she may be much more than just a robotic toy. The first release in a new partnership between Marvel and cutting-edge French publisher Soleil!

Stephen: Salt Water Taffy, “The Legend of Old Salty” (Oni Press)
Eleven-year-old Jack Putnam and his eight-year-old brother Benny are being dragged against their will on a summer-long vacation with their family. And not to somewhere cool like Disney World, but to a little port town in Maine named Chowder Bay, far away from anyplace fun. But what promises to be a very bleak summer quickly becomes a series of exciting adventures in one of the most mysterious places on earth!

Matthew: Nobel Causes #33 (Image Comics)
Frost is the subject of a vicious attack – and wait’ll you see who the attacker is! The bold new direction continues, with an increased emphasis on character-driven action and suspense!

TRADE PAPERBACK REVIEW
Wanted (Top Cow)

What if everything in your life was out of your hands and those around you propelled your fate? Your girlfriend left you for your best friend; your boss gave your job to someone better. What if then, after all this, someone gave you back total control? What if he revealed you were the next in line to join a secret society of super-villians that controlled the entire planet? Mark Millar and J.G. Jones provide a look at one man who goes from being the world’s biggest loser to the deadliest assassin alive.
