Legendary comic book store owner Greg Bennett provides a pair of recommendations for comic book lovers every week. Titles are either currently on specialty store shelves or shipping or in the near future. Fans can also click on the covers to appreciate the fine art.
Seaguy: The Slaves of Mickey Eye, No. 1, Vertigo/DC Comics ($3.99)
After killing Batman, shredding the DC Universe in Final Crisis, and updating the SIlver Age Man of Steel in All-Star Superman, Grant Morrison cuts loose again with another installment of his super-surreal aquatic hero, Seaguy. This time it’s Seaguy (while having an existential crisis) vs. Mickey Eye and the Happy Group, Inc. Cool and weird—classic Morrison. Don’t miss Seaguy’s previous adventure—now in paperback!
Captain America Comics 70th Anniversary Special, No. 1, Marvel Publishing ($3.99)
James Robinson and Marcos Martin bring us a pre-Golden Age adventure, starring Steve Rogers. Plus a classic Golden Age Cap story by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. ‘Nuff said.
