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!

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 recommends Doctor Spektor: Master of the Occult #1

Doctor Spektor: Master of the Occult #1 from Dynamite Entertainment is the latest in it’s revival of classic Gold Key heroes. The original series ran 24 issues pitting our hero against such classic horror baddies as vampires and mummies; he even found himself transformed into a werewolf for a short time. Sadly the Doctor was last seen in print in 1977. But, with some help from writer Mark Waid and artist Neil Edwards, Adam Spektor seems to have stolen a page from the book of the dead and risen; born anew for the 21st century.

In this modern incarnation Adam once again battles the forces of darkness, but no longer behind closed doors. Instead he clashes with them for the entertainment of millions. On screen, the cocky and charismatic star stuns audiences with ever more daring defeats of monsters around the world. Off screen personal demons threaten to swallow him up, if not for the vigilance of his manager Lenny and his personal assistant Abby Horne. Adam is going to need all the help he can get as new revelations tear his life apart and drag him further down the rabbit hole. Things are about to get very real for Americas favorite reality star, can he actually be the hero television has made him?

Be sure to check out this and the rest of Dynamites Gold Key Universe heroes including Solar: Man of the Atom, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, and Magnus: Robot Fighter.
