    October comics / Cómics de octubre


    October comics / Cómics de octubre
    Rodin Esquejo
    I had more comics in October than in previous months, and I must say that this is the best equation. More comics = more reading pleasure. This month I received the excellent second volume of Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing, which I’ll review properly in future posts. I also enjoyed both Millarworld series, Secret Service and Hit-Girl. And I was very impressed with the first issue of Uncanny Avengers (and it was such a thrill to see Cassaday doing interior art again!). There are only 3 issues left until the end of the first season of Morning Glories, and I’m still very much intrigued. Happy # 1 was so great that I’ll probably review it tomorrow (or the day after that). But if I had to choose the best book of the month then the award would go to The Boys # 71, I can’t really say anything about it without spoiling it, but the final confrontation between the two protagonists of this title is an anthological tour de force through the center of the human condition. Death has never been so poignant and so deliciously controversial as it’s here on Garth Ennis penultimate chapter of Dynamite’s best series. And now, without further ado, here are October comics as per solicitations.

    Tuve más cómics en octubre que en meses previos, y debo decir que esa es la mejor ecuación. Más cómics = más lecturas placenteras. Este mes recibí el excelente segundo volumen de Swamp Thing de Alan Moore que reseñará como corresponde en futuros posts. También disfruté con las dos series de Millarworld Secret Service y Hit-Girl. Y el primer número de Uncanny Avengers me impresionó (¡y fue emocionante ver a Cassaday a cargo de todos los dibujos nuevamente!). Sólo faltan tres números para final de la primera temporada de Morning Glories y todavía sigo bastante intrigado. Happy # 1 fue tremendo, y probablemente lo comentaré mañana (o pasado mañana). Pero si tuviera que elegir lo mejor del mes el premio iría para The Boys # 71, no puedo decir nada sin arruinar las sorpresas, pero la confrontación final entre los dos protagonistas de este título es un antológico tour de fuerza al centro de la condición humana. La muerte nunca ha sido tan significativa ni tan deliciosamente controversial como lo es que aquí, en el penúltimo capítulo de Garth Ennis de la mejor serie de Dynamite. Y ahora, sin mayores preámbulos, aquí van los cómics de octubre.

    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.
