February comics / cómics de febrero

Postby LOLtron » Sun Mar 17, 2013 7:24 pm

With almost 20 comics and 2 trade paperbacks I was afraid it would take me longer to finish reading everything. Anyway, against all odds my favorite comic of the month was Young Avengers # 1 and I’ll definitely write a review about it. The conclusion of the Hit-Girl miniseries was quite interesting, and the conclusion of Happy was very intense. I loved the third chapter of Witch Doctor, arguably the best Image miniseries right now. The first issue of Snapshot was a very pleasant surprise, Andy Diggle really manages to capture the environment of nerdiness that surrounds a comic book store, and creates in only a few pages a couple of really fascinating characters, plus a very intriguing mystery that involves mutilations and murders. Sandman and America’s Best Comics are two really great trades, including many stories by Neil Gaiman and Alan Moore, two of my most respected and admired writers ever. I haven't read Hellblazer in a while, the last issue I bought was # 250, and it was in the first DCBS package that arrived to Perú in 2010, the end of Vertigo's oldest series with issue # 300 certainly marks the end of an era. The conclusion is bitter and sad. So long John Constantine, you'll be missed. Finally, the February book I loved the most was Silver Surfer Parable, but I guess it doesn’t qualify as the “best of the month” since it was originally published in the late 80s. Still, it is Stan Lee and Moebius at their best. And now, without further ado, here are February comics. Which one of these would you like to see reviewed in length?

Con casi 20 cómics y 2 tomos recopilatorios tenía miedo de demorarme demasiado leyendo todo. En fin, contra todo pronóstico, mi cómic favorito del mes fue Young Avengers # 1 y de hecho le dedicaré una reseña completa. La conclusión de la miniserie de “Hit-Girl” fue muy interesante, y la conclusión de “Happy” fue muy intensa. Me encantó el tercer capítulo de “Witch Doctor”, tal vez la mejor miniserie de Image del momento. El primer ejemplar de “Snapshot” fue una muy agradable sorpresa, Andy Diggle se las arregla para capturar el ambiente nerd de una tienda de cómics, y crea sólo en unas pocas páginas un par de personajes más que fascinantes, además de un misterio que nos intriga, que involucra mutilaciones y asesinatos. “Sandman” y “America’s Best Comics” son dos tomos de primer nivel, que incluyen muchas historias de Neil Gaiman y Alan Moore, dos de mis más respetados y admirados escritores. No he leído Hellblazer en mucho tiempo, el último número que compré fue el # 250, y estuvo que el primer paquete de DCBS que llegó a Perú en el 2010, el fin de la serie más antigua de Vertigo con el ejemplar # 300 de hecho marca el fin de una era. La conclusión es amarga y triste. Hasta luego, John Constantine, serás extrañado. Por último, lo que más me gustó de febrero fue "Silver Surfer Parable", pero supongo que no califica como lo "mejor del mes" ya que la fecha original de publicación es de fines de los 80. Aún así, son Stan Lee y Moebius en su mejor momento. Y ahora, sin más preámbulos, los dejo con los cómics de febrero. ¿Cuáles creen que deberían ser reseñados a conciencia?
