New Comics Wednesday

Of course, there weren't any new comics out today because of the holiday earlier this week. I'm going to write about a few comics that I bought last Wednesday but only read recently...


Pilot Season: Twilight Guardian #1 -- Bought on a whim, I was thoroughly charmed by this comic about a super-heroine who only patrols her immeadeate neighborhood. Basically, it's really about all the weird things you can see as a pedestrian at 2:00 in the morning, as seen thru the eyes of a woman who's out their every morning looking for crime and never finding it. Also, she reads lots of comics (and watches lots of police procedural TV shows).

This story has lots of little humorous touches that i really enjoyed. Here's a few:
  • A golden age super-hero whose main weapon is his Cape of Good Hope!
  • Nazi catgirl Fraulein Feline!
  • Telepathic Arabic super-villain Abdullah Oblongata!
  • evidence of snail racing
  • rewards of Tupperwear or marital aids
  • the usefulness of deer jerky and ninja climbing claws

Well, that's only one comic, but it's time for bed. I will say that I also recommend Dark Ivory #2, Justice League of America #21 and Madame Mirage #6, but I am more reserved about American Dream #2 and Tangent: Superman's Reign #3...

Just wanted to thank you for the kind words about Twilight Guardian. You've made my day!

You're welcome! I really did enjoy it...

Were you inspired by recent news stories about "reals" (like this one: http://articles.citypages.com/articles/2008-01-16/feature/superheroes-in-real-life/ )?

I'm also digging Insane Jane, another comic with the same basic setup (but far different execution). Are you familiar with it?

Actually, Twilight Guardian first appeared in a couple of my mini-comics about 12 years ago (the script for the new version is an amalgam of those, updated and enhanced).

I've never heard of Insane Jane, but I googled it and it looks interesting. I'll check it out!
