Really small week. So only expect like 2 reviews. Don't worry, Midtown Comics shall be avenged next week.

HARDCOVERS:
Hellboy: House of the Living Dead (Dark Horse, $14.99 print): Truth be told, I'm not the biggiest Hellboy dude. But I like Richard Coben and ton, and David Brothers said this story was dope. For less than $10 I paid for it via BnN giftcards, I agree. It's a "lost" story where Hellboy spends some time in Mexico as a wrestler, gets drunk a lot, fights Frakenstein's monster, and then makes me depressed. It's great, and if you're only familiar w/ Hellboy from the movies, you won't be that lost.

TLDR: YOU BUY NOW!


SINGLE ISSUES!

Astonishing X-Men #46
(Marvel, $3.99 Digital and Print). I really like AXM for the simple fact it's mostly continuity free story arcs done by specific creative teams for 4-12 issues. George Pax and Mike McKone are doing a 6 issue arc where post-Schism Cyke teams up with various X-men from alternate realities, referring a ton of different AU stories. It's not status-quo changing, but it does a nice job of examining Cyke's mind post- Schism. You maybe be better of trade-waiting it though, especially at $4 and issue.

TLDR: Solid stuff, but as a part 3 of 5, not exactly the best entry point.






That was it for the week. HOWEVER, 2 trades to finish up, and like 4-5 books dropping this week will ensure a bigger post next week.
