June Comic Books / Cómics de junio
I’m glad to see that DC has included some of the best Alan Moore, Grant Morrison and Neil Gaiman works in the Essential Graphic Novels special, but there’s a lot of crap there too, although the good outweighs the bad. I had so much fun reading The Pro, I love Garth Ennis and his irreverence. Vertigo has two new titles: The Wake and Astro City, and they’re both really, really good. I’ll wait till I read the next issues before reviewing them. The conclusion of Gillen and McKelvie’s first arc on Young Avengers was so brilliant. And I’m glad I ordered the reprint of Phonogram, Gillen and McKelvie create something so unique, and at the same time so British and so full of wild ideas, I wish I could’ve picked up this series 7 years ago. Fashion Beast ends and The Bounce begins, but if I had to choose the best comic of the month the award would go to Kick-Ass 3 # 1. What a great first chapter! Millar has done it again. Have you read it? And if you haven’t, what are you waiting for? (in case anyone’s keeping count of the “best of”, in May we had Jupiter’s Legacy # 1 and Young Avengers # 4; in April, Uncanny Avengers # 5 and FF # 4; In March, Young Avengers # 2; in February, Young Avengers # 1; in January, Secret Service # 5). Anyway, without further ado, June comics are here as per solicitations:

Me alegra que DC haya incluido algunas de las mejores obras de Alan Moore, Grant Morrison y Neil Gaiman en el especial Novelas Gráficas Esenciales, pero hay mucha basurilla también, aunque lo bueno sobrepasa lo malo. Me divertí tanto leyendo The Pro, me encanta Garth Ennis y su irreverencia. Vertigo tiene dos nuevos títulos: The Wake y Astro City, y ambos son realmente buenos. Esperaré hasta leer los próximos números antes de analizarlos. La conclusión del primer arco de Gillen y McKelvie en Young Avengers fue brillante. Y me alegra haber comprado la reimpresión de Phonogram, Gillen y McKelvie crean algo único, y al mismo tiempo tan británico y tan lleno de ideas alocadas, me hubiera encantado comprar la colección cuando salió hace 7 años. Fashion Beast termina y The Bounce comienza, pero si tuviera que elegir el mejor cómic del mes el premio sería para Kick-Ass 3 # 1. ¡Qué estupendo primer capítulo! Millar lo ha conseguido de nuevo. ¿Lo han leído? Y si no lo han hecho, ¿qué están esperando? (en caso que alguien esté llevando la cuenta de "lo mejor", en mayo tuvimos a Jupiter’s Legacy # 1 y Young Avengers # 4; en abril, Uncanny Avengers # 5 y FF # 4; en marzo, Young Avengers # 2; en febrero, Young Avengers # 1; en enero, Secret Service # 5). En fin, sin más preámbulos, aquí están los cómics de junio:

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.
