A comiXologist Recommends:
Kate Kasenow recommends Bob's Burgers #1
The announcement of any new series comes with a lot of emotions—usually various combinations of trepidation and excitement, but I can tell you from personal experience that the announcement that the hit comedy cartoon, Bob’s Burgers, would be getting a comics adaptation made my day like an infamous Meatsiah burger!
Created by the writers and animators of the cartoon, Bob’s Burgers #1 delights with five brand new short stories about the Belcher family and their non-stop shenanigans. Journey into adventure with the Equestranauts during a glimpse of Tina’s Erotic Friend Fiction! Explore the pun-derful creative process of Bob in Burger of the Day Ideas! A dark and terrible secret awaits in Louise’s UnSolved Mysteries and Curious Curiosities! Relax and unwind with Letters from Linda! Sing along in Gene Belcher Presents!
The world of Bob’s Burgers jumps from screen to page effortlessly and will have you inappropriately snorting with laughter in no time. My personal fave will probably always be Tina’s deadpan delivery, but a close second is Louise’s passionate conviction—which might not always be right, but is most certainly one hell of a ride.
If you’ve been wondering how you’re going to make it through without any new Bob’s Burgers until October, wonder no more!

This suburban punisher is ready to be unleashed in a story that can only be told by the legendary Garth Ennis, and this weekend only save up to 50% on single issues and collections!
…issue 3 is pretty much the greatest.
A comiXologist Recommends:
Michael Crowe recommends Flash Gordon #3
Not since watching the original 1930’s serials with my Father when I was a child have I been so enthralled and captivated by a Flash Gordon story. It is clear that everyone working on this title cares deeply about the source material.
Jeff Parker’s writing captures the very essence of these characters while adeptly updating them for a new era. Flash Gordon is at the top of his game, showcasing what it means to be a true hero. He leaps into action at a moments notice to fight any injustice he sees, for better or for worse. Dale Arden, once a helpless, screaming, fainting damsel in distress has been re-imagined as a gutsy, street smart reporter who can more than handle herself. Dr. Hans Zarkov, rocket engineer extraordinaire, receives an added layer of alcohol fueled sassyness to compliment his notorious intellect. The art, by Evan Shaner (docshaner), is explosive while also lending tenderness and emotional depth to each character, panel after panel. Jordie Bellaire’s (jordiecolorsthings) coloring infuses the empire of Mongo and its varied planets with a richness and liveliness that complements the exotic worlds we travel to with Flash and crew.
This book is truly unrivaled, nothing else delivers pulse pounding pulp stories with such aplomb. To find out exactly how Flash, Dale and Zarkov ended up stranded on the strange worlds of Mongo check out the preceding mini-series, King’s Watch, written by Jeff Parker and illustrated by Mark Laming. Be sure to pick up Flash Gordon #3 if you’re a fan of classic heroes, sci-fi action/adventure stories, and want to know what has inspired science fiction classics for over 80 years.
Michael Crowe works on the digital assets/launch team by day and writes comics and prose by night. He’s an avid consumer of comics and all things sci-fi.
