Tried out Marvel’s AR App. Digital and motion comics scare the crap out of me and I dread a time when they will be the norm (we already have cartoons, don’t take away our comics!!) but using our digital devices in this manner, well, it’s actually kind of cool. You hold your phone over the comic and the show you the making of a page, or the writer will give some behind the scenes details. Very cool way to keep people going to their local comic shops while still embracing the inevitability of the digital age. Not bad marvel… Not bad.

Well… I’m going to sleep. Leave me alone.

Vampires, vampires and vampires.

Two days late! What a jerk! Sorry, I’ve been busy preparing for Round 2 of The Bamboozle Break Contest this Saturday, March 31st at Ollie’s Point in Amityville, NY. It would mean the world to us if you guys could all come out and support! We really want to play with Jon Bon!

LONG LIVE THIS GOOD ROBOT

I’m in a great mood! Must be all the new comics! I know everyone is talking about Avengers VS X-men, but to be honest, the only Marvel book I’ve read since The Runaways is Moon Knight and I’m a little scared. Moon Knight, by the way, only has one more issue left at which point I will be Marvel-less once again. I’ve decided to try to just jump in. If you’re a marvel reader and you see something I might not get, help me out!! Marvel, I’ve ignored you long enough.

TOP 5 NEW COMICS, all of which happen to have Vampires in them… Totally not on purpose, I don’t even really like vampires, but these vampires are fucking awesome!):

American Vampire #25

20120330-111556.jpg
DC Vertigo: Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque
Huge issue! Loved every last panel! I can’t wait to see what happens next!

The New Deadwardians #1

20120330-111755.jpg
DC Vertigo: Dan Abnett and I.N.J. Culbard
Just an incredibly solid 1st issue! Amazing usage of 20 pages. Great pacing and yet I feel like I learned so much about every character and the world they are living in. Basically, the zombie apocalypse has occurred and to save themselves, the upper class has taken “The Cure” (nothing to do with Robert Smith) and have voluntarily become vampires. So the lower class is zombies, middle class are human and the upper, vampires. The main character is a vampires who seems to miss being human. He is also the last homicide detective due to total lack of homicides that occur that aren’t just zombie attacks on humans. I learned all of that, and they set up a murder mystery and managed to be less wordy than i’m being here! I honestly can’t say enough good things about it. Please do yourself a favor and check it out!

I, Vampire #7

Light week, my ass!

Holy shit! 29 books this week! I’m starting to feel it… Of those 29 books, 8 of them are #1’s, so it’s just getting worse. My wallet has been yelling at me. I have a serious problem… Also my wallet can talk.
Now i’m going to justify all of those #1’s!
Here’s what I’m trying out:

Rebel Blood #1 (I’m reading pretty much everything image is putting out right now, what’s one more?)

Hoax Hunters #0 (technically, this is not a #1)

-Ragemoor #1 (don’t know anything about this one… Sweet cover though!)

Rocketeer Adventures 2 #1 (is this technically a #1? More like #5, besides, it’s the fucking rocketeer! Consider this purchase justified!)

The Secret History of D.B. Cooper #1(technically, this came out last week.)

And the other 3 #1’s are in my top 5. Spoilers!

I’m also definitely sticking with No Place Like Home (#2 out today), Prophet #23 (#3), and Memorial (#4 today). All great stuff!!

I just read all of that back. The problem isn’t that I’m trying out all of these new series. In fact, all of my favorite comics right now are independent, creator owned books. The problem is that I’m still reading Green Arrow. Stop it.

Seriously though, I try to only talk about things I like on here. I like to keep things positive. I love comics. I’m not the guy who says that and then spends all of their time bitching about them. Some of the greatest stories ever told are happening now… In comics. Right under the general public’s noses. Do the world a favor and give someone you love a comic book today.

Let’s do the Pulls!

I believe in Brian K. Vaughan!! We’ve missed you!!

Happy Pi Day Everybody! What a great day for comics! 25 Books this week! If all that came out today was Saga and Locke & Key it would still be one of the best days ever! But we’ve also got the highly anticipated second issues of Thief of Thieves and Peter Panzerfaust, Joshua Hale Fialkov’s third installment of his awesome Doctor Who story, new stuff from Vertigo and the conclusion of the first mini series of The Strange Talents of Luther Strode by Justin Jordan (I think we’re going to be seeing a lot from this guy soon! Really great stuff!

SAGA seems to be the word today around the #comicmarket and for all kinds of good reasons! Brian K. Vaughan’s return to comics is met with wide open arms! As a huge fan of his work myself,

20120314-172434.jpg
(can you tell?) I often complain that he doesn’t write more comics, but after reading the first issue of Saga, I’m reminded just how special his writing is. He’s not writing just to write. His dialog flows so beautifully and is so powerful. Nothing in a Brian K. Vaughan book ever feels fake or half-assed, he commits whole heartily to the character’s development and the worlds he creates for them. I
believe in comic books. I believe in Brian K. Vaughan.

Having said all of that, I would read the shit out of this book with or without Vaughan, because Fiona Staple’s art is simply stunning! This is the first stuff I’ve seen of hers and I’m gonna go ahead and call myself a fan! The character designs are insane and wonderful. The colors are just gorgeous. I can’t wait to turn the page to see what’s next. She really knows how to show facial expression. I truly believed every emotion. That first scene! Are you kidding me?! Simply beautiful! I was immediately involved in their joy and fear of being new parents. Not to mention, Alana’s face when Marko starts chewing through the umbilical chord… perfect!

20120317-133952.jpg
My only complaint is that she works digitally, and ONLY because I want to buy the original art for every single page. Oh well, maybe she’ll do some prints or something so I can throw my money at her.

I know I say it all the time, but I love that Image Comics is taking so many chances with creator owned books that may not always be considered mainstream. It’s exciting not always knowing what to expect, and I’m so rarely disappointed by new titles they’ve been putting out. Keep doing what you are doing. I will keep buying them. That’s a promise.

One last thing about this book before I get into the top 5 pulls.
44 PAGES! NOT ONE FUCKING AD! $2.99! Well done Image Comics. Well done all around.

Magic, Comics, and Bigotry! Oh My!!

Annyong!!

Recently, I was tweeting about looking for an artist to draw me a TARDIS for a tattoo I want to get. Technology is incredible! Five minutes later I was chatting with a total stranger. He asked about what I was wearing and everything got a bit weird… five minutes after that, this guy Sean Von Gorman tweets at me and we work out that, being an artist and all, he is going to draw and send me a Tardis, and I am going to, in turn, send him a bit of American currency… everyone wins! Haven’t gotten the tattoo yet, but the art came in the mail yesterday and it’s great!
Check it out!
20120228-204635.jpg
I just can’t wait to put it on my body for forever and ever.
Gorman and I got to talking about music, art and comics in general and he eventually sent me an advanced copy of his comic, The Secret Adventures of Houdini.
20120229-191627.jpg
I read it twice. The first time, I found it fun and enjoyable with great art. The second time however, I picked up on all of these wonderful new elements of storytelling I somehow missed the first time. One of my favorite scenes was when Houdini is putting on make up to cover his bumps and bruises from that night’s secret escapades hiding them from his wife? His public? Always in character, always playing a part, always “The Master of Disguise”!
Anyway, lots of action, tons of fun! Definitely check it out! Tell your local store to order it, and/or you can order copies here:
The Secret Adventures of Houdini.

To promote the release of the first issue today, Gorman spent all day handcuffed to a pole in front of Forbidden Planet Comics in New York until all the issues are sold out. I love stuff like this!! Last we checked in with Gorman, it’s getting dark and it’s still raining… GOOD LUCK OUT THERE SEAN!!20120229-191345.jpg

Check out his band: Super Secret Side Project (gonna have to get some shows going with them and This Good Robot soon!)

Notable from last week (not in my top 5:

Very excited about the Justice League Dark / I, Vampire crossover that’s coming up. A little upset that I read Justice League dark first this week. Spoilers.

Does this make me a nerd?!

Happy New Comic Day!!
So, last week was a bit of a light week for releases and it gave me a chance to finally check out (on @4thworldZombie‘s recommendation) Jeff Lemire’s The Nobody.

20120222-195247.jpg
DO IT! Seriously! It’ll take you no time at all to read and it is a beautiful little book about an invisible man who can’t help but get noticed by the population of the small fishing town of Large Mouth. Upon completion, it made me think of the Twilight Zone episode, “The Monsters Are Due on Maple”. I really loved it! I want to buy an original page from it eventually for sure!

Notable from last week (not in my top 5):

20120222-190128.jpg
Dungeons & Dragons?! Seriously?! Me?! Does this make me a nerd?!
When I was a little kid, I went to my local comic shop in Virginia called, Richmond Comix where there were normally kids set up at tables playing some game with a 100 sided dice (forgive me if that’s wrong). These kids were incredibly unwelcoming to newcomers. I get that now. It was their thing. It was their thing which people probably gave them tons of shit about already anyway. Of course they would be unwelcoming, but at the time, I was pissed. I guess it kind of stuck with me, because since then, I’ve done everything in my power to avoid Dungeons & Dragons… That shit is for nerds (how many people did I just piss off?).
Anyway, IDW is putting out a crossover events right now called Infestation 2, which I am only reading because eventually the Ninja Turtles are getting involved. SHIT! I’m going to have to read Dungeons & Dragons comics?! Bullshit!
Turns out, I fucking loved the first issue! It was like Sherlock Holmes in a fantasy setting! It was tons of fun, and I’m actually really looking forward to checking out #2 this week! NERD.

BREAKING NEWS!! Nerdtown’s population is growing!!!!!!!
Tons of new stuff is happening here in Nerdtown! Including some new writers for this blog! I’m teaming with my favorite comic shop in the world, 4th World Comics (Smithtown, NY) in an attempt to bring you guys more. At some point over this next month, you’ll start to see articles, news, reviews or whatever the fuck the fine people over at 4th World feel like saying! There has even been some talk of a weekly podcast… SHHH! Don’t tell anyone!
I’VE SAID TOO MUCH!!!
SPOILERS!!

Let’s do the pulls!!!
It was all I could do to not put American Vampire in my Top 5 this week. It’s just so damn good I can’t stand it! But I promised I would be trying to switch it up a bit and stop picking all the same books every week.
Here we go, 2/22/12 Top 5 Pulls:

PETER PAN…ZERFAUST!!!!

Peter Pan set during WWII… I haven’t read it yet, but I’m guessing this makes Captain Hook a Nazi… Nice.

Happy Day After Valentine’s Day Day!! I hope you gave someone you love a comic book yesterday. I went for the ol’ put the bracelet on her while she’s sleeping bit. She got new jewelry, I got a black eye.

A lighter week than usual. I picked up 18 books, some of which don’t count. I’m not counting Conan the Barbarian by Brian Wood, Becky Cloonan and Dave Stewart, because it came out last week. I don’t think it’s something I would normally pick up, but I heard a lot of good things and I’m a fan of everyone involved, so I’m excited!
The other book I’m not counting is Prophet #21 by Brandon Graham and Simon Roy because I’m an asshole and should have bought the first printing. I had it in my hands and put it back for some idiotic reason. I grabbed the 2nd printing tonight. Very excited to finally read this one!

20120215-194033.jpg

I’m going to be making a lot changes around Nerdtown, USA very soon. I’m not ready to talk about everything just yet, I can tell you to expect more and to be excited!

The best comics are free comics!

So I had kind of a weird day. At work, I got hit in the eye and sliced my cornea… Which is exactly as much fun as it sounds. I reluctantly went to the doctor and in the end, I’m glad I did. Nothing worse than infected eyeballs! The doctor said I should be in a lot more pain than I am… Turns out I’m not a pussy after all! Hooorrray!!!
And then… There were comics.
When you go to get your comics this week, be sure to pick up the FREE Vertigo 2012 Preview.

20120208-191316.jpg
I’m a huge Fables fan, so I was excited to see some of the first pages from the Fairest spin off by Bill Willingham, Phil Jimenez and Andy Lanning (#1 on sale March 7, 2012). Before the Fairest preview, which was great by the way, were three others. I normally check out of Vertigo #1’s, but these previews have me totally pumped for:
Dominque Laveau: Voodoo Child by Selwyn Seyfu Hinds, Denys Cowan, and John Floyd (#1 on sale March 21, 2012)

The New Deadwardians by Dan Abnett and I. N. J. Culbard (#1 on sale March 28, 2012)

Saucer Country by Paul Cornell and Ryan Kelly (#1 on sale March 14, 2012)

I’m definitely on board for all four!

This Good Robot – The Human I Am EP Lyrics (for those who’ve requested)

20120204-231206.jpgPeople keep asking for these and I’ve been too busy (lazy) til now. Sorry.
I had to listen to the songs and pause and play as I typed to make sure I didn’t mess anything up. I’ll confess that there was a line or two that had me a bit stumped even listening back. what the fuck was I trying to say?! No one will ever know. Enjoy!

Woe is Barnaby Black

Oh, I’m not the man I was the day the coppers took my face away
Away, away, a mistake they put me away
So, I wondered who my mother was as they dragged me towards that prison bus, sent away, sent away, sent away, they put me away
Oh, you haven’t heard the last from me
The science of catastrophe
You’ll get yours (you’ll get yours)
I’ll get mine (not this time)
Then we’ll see if we can die

Oh, my mind, it’s running faster…
It’s running faster in all of the wrong ways
Oh, I’m so lost, I’ve found my way
Oh, I, I am not the answer
But i’ve got the answer
I won’t walk away
When they’re talking down my name
I’m the fall guy they can blame

So you’ve lost your mind quite literally
Then you beg me for some sympathy
Well it’s right where we left it that night
All over the wall
The ceiling still rains bits of you
I never got you off my shoes
So I throw them away
Yeah I throw, throw them away

My heart!
It beats me senseless
And all my senses seem to slip away
Oh, I’m so lost, I’ve found my way
But I, I am not defenseless
And I’ve seen my purpose
I will have my day
When they’re talking down my name
I’m the fall guy they can blame
So I might as well play the part

Chronic Town

It’s not our war (not this time)
You’re hands tied to the floor (not this time)
Real problems ignored (give up the fight)
Til we fall apart (but we’ll never die)
In those hands (we’re all free)
That we hold onto
And we go

We’re all man-made (I have been saved)
We’re all built the same (I have been saved)
And we run

Give up the fight (the human I have been)
Drop it now (the human I could be)
With all you’re might (once you’ve abandoned all)
And let go (the faith you had in me)

Give us love
Or we walk

It’s cute you think you’re going home (have I been saved?)

Alive! Alive! Alive! Alive!

The Human I Am

Someone’s got me tied up to a wall
I’ve got to get lose,
Got to go off and save the world
If I can’t break free
There’s no saving me
Then you’re all doomed
And I’ll apologize
But of course you can’t hear me anymore

So I dig down deeper
You fall so much fast
But I promise that I’ll make this grab
If I lost you, I’d lose all the human I am

Now the dead are walking
We may have to run
Won’t live out the night long enough to feel the sun
And she screams, “SOMEONE SAVE ME! I JUST CAN’T BREAK FREE! THEY SMELL MY BRAINS! NO! I BEG AND PLEAD! Of course, they can’t hear me anymore”

So now you’re tied to the tracks and I’m breaking my back for love
We’ve got an hour to kill and if the train doesn’t do it, he will
When suddenly it hits me
A ton of bricks
It can’t be
And we’re all gone
And still you beg and plead
But I don’t want to hear it anymore

Call the Police

You promised you’d always be true
You wronged me can my stop loving you
Along with my trust
You took all of my heart
And still, I can’t stop saving you

Get down!
Right now!
On the ground!
Introduce yourself to the tile!
I know, I know, I know, it’s a bit much to handle
You ain’t got no luck and no hero

I’m sorry I find this funny
You’re meager attempt to stop me
But there’s a knife in his back
Did the little lady do that?

This world it vibrates and here I am standing still
Watching these heads roll away
Talk of the nation!
It’s newest sensation!
Say no? Share your lovers grave!
You thought I didn’t know?
You thought I didn’t know?

Well I could be king
And you could be free
Oh, but this pardon, it comes with a fee
Only your word
Don’t be absurd!
Darlin this world we could tear it apart!
Hell, it’s already falling apart
Yeah, this world, let’s tear it apart!

You and me we make great partners
City’s mine
It could be ours
I have waited long to show you
All this time
I’ve always been dreaming of you –And me we make great partners…

I thought I found you out
Found out what all the fuss was about
I give up
I’m done
You win
I have lost all the human I am <—(HEY LOOK! THAT'S THE NAME OF THE ALBUM AND THAT OTHER SONG! NEAT!! 😉 )

You've got me all shook up!
You've got me all shook up!
Now I'm gone!
Now I'm gone!

There’s a bunch of back up stuff and rock together still, but I’m tired and lazy. Another time my friends. You can get this EP on itunes, amazon or at This Good Robot Merch. While you’re there, don’t forget to grab your tickets for the Bamboozle Break Contest Feb 19th at Ollie’s Point!

Shit. I didn’t talk about comics once in this post. What kind of blog are we running here anyway?! Worst. Comic blog. Ever.
Shheeesh! There are other things in the world other than Comics! Comics! Comics! I just don’t care about them.
