October comic books / cómics de octubre
While you were out there celebrating Halloween, I was a happy prisoner of a veritable mountain of good comics! Some were simply good (Night of the Living Dead, New Mutants), others were very good (Thor: God of Thunder) and others were a masterpiece (Sandman: Endless Nights). I had a wonderful triple dose of Quitely: Sandman: Endless Nights (it’s so great that I had to mention it at least twice), Jupiter’s Legacy (I must write about it on a future post) and Earth 2 (Morrison’s story is very impressive and those Quitely pages are gorgeous). I hadn’t read any good Jeph Loeb comic in the past decade or so, but I enjoyed these issues of Nova, I don’t know if the protagonist (Sam) is Jeph’s homage to his own deceased son (Sam Loeb), but I certainly liked the idea of a kid following his father’s example (in real life Sam Loeb wrote comics just like his father did). I had fun with the reprint of the classic Wally Wood’s Thunder Agents. And I got bored with Wood’s Ultimate X-Men. But if I talk only about new releases, what I probably enjoyed the most this month was the first issues of Three (Gillen is quickly becoming one of my favorite new British writers) and Sex Criminals (by far, my favorite Matt Fraction creator-owned property… I don’t know why, but I was very disappointed by Fraction’s Casanova and Satellite Sam; and for a long time I thought he was only good writing Iron Man, FF or Defenders for Marvel but turns out that Sex Criminals is a brilliant series with a very seductive concept). And now, without further ado, here are October comics as per solicitations.

Mientras ustedes estaban celebrando Halloween, yo era un feliz prisionero de una verdadera montaña de buenos cómics. Algunos fueron simplemente buenos (Night of the Living Dead, New Mutants), otros fueron muy buenos (Thor: God of Thunder) y otros fueron una obra maestra (Sandman: Endless Nights). Recibí una maravillosa dosis triple de Quitely: Sandman: Endless Nights (es tan grandioso que tenía que mencionarlo al menos dos veces), Jupiter’s Legacy (le dedicaré un post dentro de poco) y Earth 2 (la historia de Morrison es muy impresionante y las páginas de Quitely son preciosas). No había leído ningún cómic bueno de Jeph Loeb en la última década, pero disfruté con estos números de Nova, no sé si el protagonista (Sam) es un homenaje de Jeph a su propio hijo fallecido (Sam Loeb), pero ciertamente me gustó la idea de un chiquillo que sigue el ejemplo de su padre (en la vida real Sam Loeb escribió cómics al igual que su padre). Me divertí con la reimpresión del clásico Thunder Agents de Wally Wood. Y me aburrí con los Ultimate X-Men de Wood. Pero si sólo hablara de nuevas entregas, probablemente lo que más disfruté este mes fueron los primeros números de Three (Gillen rápidamente se está convirtiendo en uno de mis nuevos escritores británicos favoritos) y Sex Criminals (de lejos, mi creación original favorita de Matt Fraction... no sé por qué, pero me decepcionó mucho el Casanova de Fraction y su Satellite Sam; y por mucho tiempo pensé que él solamente era bueno escribiendo Iron Man, FF o Defenders para Marvel pero resulta que Sex Criminals es una serie brillante con un concepto muy seductor). Y ahora, sin mayores preámbulos, ahí 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.
