Kingsters, lend me your ears! ... Wait, uh you're reading ... Kingsters, lend me your eyes! Possibly lend me your fingers as well for scrolling, and clicking. Ahem. So this week's Shipment Spotlight is brought to you by the lovely folks over at the caffeine and sugar factory who keep me typing away! That's how my body runs, 'Trust me I'm a Doctor'.
This week is full of lovely little treats that I can't wait to share with you. So without further adieu, let's get on with the show!
This week's graphic novel list is quite high, but there are some needles amongst the haystack. Why are you sewing near hay anyhow? Fatale Vol 1: Death Chases Me collects issues #1 - 5 just in time for you to jump on with this week's issue #6! Fatale is full of Secrets, lies, horror, lust, and monsters from the time before time. With guys like Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips at the helm there is no reason you shouldn't be picking up this trade!
George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones series is nothing less than epic, epic in scope, and scale. As well as being "epic" in the way that kid's are saying it today. "Yo,homie dog! That was an epic rollersurf trick!" The comic is no less epic, you can pick up Volume 1 here in hard cover.
Zombies! The one thing that all nerds have a contingency for. The one thing that no nerd could get sick of, which is good, because Sorab Del Rio and Silver Fox comics has produced Australia's first premier Zombie Comic. Zombie Cities tells the tale of several celebrities who take on the role of zombie killers to save their respective cities! Zombie Cities has some amazing art, great story telling, and out of this world action.
I love table-top games, Monopoly, Connect 4, Snap, 52 pick-up (Though my 52 pick-up is usually DC's new 52! *Boom*Tish*) I also love video games, especially Halo. Two of my loves have gone and done what your parents did that one time, made a board game! Risk: Halo continues the war between humanity and the Covenant and this collector's edition gives you a double sided board with 3 new maps never seen before in a table-top game! YAHTZEE!
The one thing I did like about Prometheus was that it was nice to look at (funny that's what people say about me). So lucky for me I can go back and enjoy looking at things with this handy-dandy Prometheus Art Book! Produced with the full co-operation of the filmmakers, this lavish hardcover, showcasing stunning production design art and behind the scenes photos, will be the only tie-in publishing to Ridley Scott's first foray into Sci-Fi since Bladrunner.
This week we'll also brings with it a flood of single issues. That would be a nice way to go, drowned by comics. Though you know who could save me? The guy you wish you didn't pick on, because now he's pretty awesome Aquaman! This issue we get to learn more about Arthur's violent past and The Others are re-united when the hero Vostok-X arrives on Earth.
You know who hangs out with Aquaman and makes Aquaman cool by association? Batman, and Batman hangs out with a bunch of other Batmen in Batman Inc vol 2 #2. In this issue Bats is fighting with Thalia Al' Ghul over their son Damian (Robin). They called them the Batman Bunch! Alfred dressed as Alice! Hilarious!
Continuing the awesome and controversial Before Watchmen series is Night Owl #1. For someone that get's so uppity about people ripping off his ideas, Alan Moore should have tried a little harder not to make a Batman clone. Then of course DC has now gone and had a whole bunch of owls ... a whole night in fact! A 'Whool' Dark Knight! SO MANY PUNS! Any who ... In this #1 Nite Owl announces his retirement to the public.
Now I'm not a father, but when I am, and when I get dishonourably discharged from the force, I'm sure I'll train my daughter to be a foul mouthed, punching, stabbing, killing machine, as any loving father would...Hit Girl #1 takes place between Kick Ass vol 1 and vol 2 as Mindy McCready tries to settle into life as a regular school-girl, but wants nothing more than to be dispensing hot justice to the scum of New York City. Her mother and step-father think she's doing her homework, but in reality she's taken Kick-Ass on as her sidekick and is training him up. Dad would be proud.
The last issue of Spider-Men left us hanging, with the two Spideys swinging into each other, and a nice teaser picture of Miles and Peter removing each other's masks *Gasp!* From the preview's that we've seen here at Kings it looks like Pete and Miles might get into a bit of a Spider Tussle! Make sure your pick up Spider-Men #2 it's sure universe bending (Bendising?) issue!
Last but by no means least a comic that should be added to all your orders and definitely a title you should all be picking up monthly. Winter City is written by Cart Purcell and Patrick Purcell with Pencils by Pablo Verdugo Munoz. This Australian comic is a detective book, along the same lines as Sam and Twitch. Winter City is engrossing, with brilliant art, and great dialogue. The story focuses on Detectives Daniels and Harvey who in Issue #1 report to a murder where the witnesses report seeing the Grim Reaper at the scene of the crime. Issue #2 sees Daniels and Harvey at another crime scene where the witnesses again report seeing the Grim Reaper, and Daniels and Harvey begin to suspect that they may have a serial killer on their hands. Another great Aussie book that needs some Kingster Love!
