S.H.I.E.L.D #9
Story  by Mark Waid, Art by Lee Ferguson

S.H.I.E.L.D. #9 is a gorgeous love letter to the 50-year-old history of S.H.I.E.L.D. comics. You get a fresh, new story involving fan favorite characters like Agent Phil Coulson and the actions of former Director Nick Fury, a great-looking story starring the classic “Dum Dum” Dugan, and even a reprint of the very first story introducing S.H.I.E.L.D. in the swingin’ sixties, baby,  yeah! If you like the Marvel movies, the Marvel TV shows, or just good ol’ American Marvel comics, go pick up S.H.I.E.L.D. #9 and be reminded why you do.

Over the Garden Wall #1
Story by Pat McHale, Art by Jim Campbell

With incredible worldbuilding, a wicked sense of humor, and a childlike sense of wonderment, BOOM! Studios’ Over The Garden Wall #1 is a genuine pleasure to read. Created by former Adventure Time creative director Pat McHale, Over the Garden Wall was originally an animated miniseries that aired on Cartoon Network this past November. With a goofy charm and an aesthetic that evoked everything from Studio Ghibli to Winsor McCay’s Little Nemo, Over the Garden Wall follows the adventures of two brothers, Wirt and Greg, who find themselves lost in a strange world full of anthropomorphic creatures and fairy tale whimsy. In the debut issue — which takes place between episodes 3 and 4 of the show — the brothers are trying to hitch a ride out of town, but having little luck. It’s only downhill from there when they come across two seemingly faceless girls and get sucked into effectively LARPing Don’t Wake Daddy, lest they incur the wrath of their apparently monstrous father. As you might imagine, mayhem ensues, as well as plenty of farcical misunderstandings and laugh out loud moments that you won’t want to miss. Many of these gags really shine thanks Jim Campbell’s artwork, which has a roughshod charm that’ll suck you in. Even if you haven’t seen the animated series, this is a delightful miniseries that deserves a place near the very top of your pull list.

Prez #3
Story by Mark Russell, Art by Ben Caldwell

My pick this week is Prez #3 from DC Comics, because it is long overdue that I shout to the rafters about how great and disturbing and funny and gorgeous this book is, and how much it deserves a place on your pull list. Prez is a brutal, hilarious political and social satire that stars Beth Ross: the first teenager elected President of the United States (the year is 2036, and for the record, the age restrictions on the Presidency were eliminated by the Corporate Personhood Amendment). In other words, the world of Prez is very close to our own, as a few eerily similar recent political events have shown. Prez goes after our media, our politics, our technology, our economy and makes you laugh even as it horrifies you. The gorgeous art from animator Ben Caldwell heightens every ridiculous element of the world, and the writing is maybe the sharpest since Dr. Strangelove. Vote Beth! And pick up Prez.
