This Week in Comics - Week 6

Oops! I'm a day late posting this week.

I'm sad to say that I didn't read too much this week. As I've said before, most of my reading occurs at work on my lunch break. Last Monday and Friday were both half days for me, and Thursday I went to my daughter's school during lunch to pick up her spring pictures. That left just Tuesday and Wednesday to enjoy some lunchtime comics.

Here's what I managed to read this week

Have you ever watched one word or less comic reviews on YouTube? Well that's basically what I'm going to do today because I'm lazy. The first four books up there are individual books, while the fifth is a trade. I'll talk about the trade a little more.

Batman The Dark Knight #16 - overrated

Uncanny X-Force #2 - forgettable

A + X #5 - light

Age of Apocalypse #13 - intriguing

Whew! That's a bit more difficult than I expected!
Now for the trade, which is Jericho Season 3 Civil War.

If you watched and enjoyed seasons 1 and 2 of the Jericho TV show, this is a must read! That being said, I don't think you could just into this trade without watching the show first. Honestly, I don't know why you would even want to. The TV show was one of the best I've ever seen. Yeah, I love my LOST and BSG, but Jericho was incredible. I would have to say that, in my opinion, it was better than the two shows I just mentioned. NOT better than Firefly, but better than LOST and BSG. That's saying a lot, because I love my LOST.
This trade picked up right where season 2 ended, and revealed so much about the plot and characters. I LOVED it and I cannot wait to read more!Season 4 is currently being published in singles, but I'm waiting (not so) patiently for the trade.
