Review: Irredeemable #2

Oh Lois, what have you done now? The Plutonian is on a rampage, and is killing anyone and everyone in his path.  The question that is on every reader’s mind is, “How did he get this way, what caused him to snap?”  Issue two arrived in stores today, and it gives yet another clue to the mystery of the hero that is now irredeemable.

Mark Waid’s Irredeemable #2 arrives in stores today (May 6, 2009) and even before the stores open, Boom! Studios has announced the issue has completely sold out.  So if you want to read what happens next (and it is a doozy, as readers discover how the Plutonian’s secret identity was revealed), you best get down to your store today. Or, wait until mid-June when Boom! gets the reprint (with variant cover) to direct market shops around the country. “The fan reaction to IRREDEEMABLE has been unlike anything that I have ever experienced,” said BOOM!

Review: Eureka: Dormant Gene #1

Oh, the subtle play on words Seems like that teen vampire movie based on that teen book with the apple on the cover isn’t just taking over the real world, the kids in Eureka are pretty crazy about it too.  And it looks like Zoe’s daydreams of finding her Mister Right in school where she doesn’t fit in is about to go terribly wrong.

Review: Mr. Stuffins #1

A touching tale of a stuffed bear and his boy Remember those Teddy Ruxpin bears we all had as kids. Not me of course, I was too old for those kinds of things by the time the line rolled out, and my parents were really cheap bastards to boot, but I found the alluring call of this early animatronic creature fascinating.  I always wondered what would have happened if someone tweaked the programming of that little critter, and thanks to the magics of Andrew Cosby and Johanna Stokes, I get to relive that fantastical part of my childhood that never…

The Muppet Show Comic Book #2 Sells Out Before It Goes On Sale

When checking the pre-release numbers for The Muppet Show Comic Book #2, Boom! Studios discovered the issue had sold out during the initial release (somewhere in the neighborhood of 10,000 issues based on my estimates).  This means if you didn’t pre-order the issue, or don’t get to the store early next Wednesday, you’re going to have to wait until late-May when the second printing arrives in stores. via Boom!
