In an attempt to broaden my horizons comics wise beyond the mainstream into the creator owned world, I picked up the first issue of Superior by Mark Millar. I was intrigued by the art style I saw somewhere because it appeared to be a combination of Buster Crabbe’s Flash Gordon meets Captain Marvel. I’m sure some of my readers are like “who the hell is Buster Crabbe?” All I can say is I’m old and that’s what Google is for.

I am attempting to get back on track here at Analog and this week’s offering at the old comic store lead to a lot of good stuff to review. I thought I’d start out with New Avengers #5 to continue my looks at the relaunched Avengers titles. We finally get a clue to who exactly is trying to magically invade our dimension and some explanation to what they are actually after. I won’t give away the bad guy but I will say it came as a complete surprise while making total sense and is tied to Dr Strange’s current status quo. Someone is after the Eye of Aramotto and willing to destroy anything or anyone in its path to get it. Luckily for our Heroes, Spiderman is along for the ride and accidentally stumble’s on the Identity of the villain without knowing it. So let’s take a look at the mystical mess this group of Avengers has stumbled into.
The Knight and Squire mini series came in this week and it was a bit of an odd duck. I was looking forward to this book since I have enjoyed their appearances that Grant Morrison has sprinkled throughout the Bat books. I thought the idea of a British version of Batman and Robin was an interesting idea and especially enjoyed the novelty of a female version of Robin in the Squire. She has been the star of the team thus far and that doesn’t change with this issue.
Considerably less photos due to Westport space constraints, down from a record high last year of 172! BOO Westport! Masque photos to come!
