August comic books / cómics de agosto

Written by Arion on Friday, September 28 2012 and posted in Blog


Although slightly delayed, it’s time to talk about August comics, or at least some of them. First of all we have “The Boys” getting closer to its final issue, and there is so much going on here that I simply can’t wait for the next issue. Morning Glories continues to deliver a strong story, and with issue 21 artist Rodin Esquejo pays homage to Morning Glories # 1. Great stuff. Think Tank is August’s best new series (and I’ll review it soon). I’ll update this post when I finish reading everything. And now, without further ado, August comics as per solicitations.

About the Author - Arion


Arion, who is either from Chile or New York (it’s not really clear) writes a blog that the Outhouse steals on a regular basis.  Arion is by far the nicest of all the staff writers and the most well behaved only having been banned from one country.  One thing we really appreciate about Aroin is that he writes his reviews in English and Spanish and we hope someday he’ll translate this blurb for us.  We’re not so good at languages, just look at how well we write in English if you need proof.  You should bookmark Arion’s blog -  http://artbyarion.blogspot.com – and actually look at it.  There will be a quiz at the end of every month.
