    December comic books / cómics de diciembre

    The year has just begun and I’m celebrating with a quadruple overdose of Gillen! Two issues of Young Avengers, Three and Uber (that’s the good stuff). I didn’t think much of Inhumanity till I reached the final pages, what a surprising ending! My favorite issues of the month come from Dark Horse & Icon. I’m talking about the first issue of Shaolin Cowboy; it sure deserves a special award: great story and splendid art, I’ve always been a Geof Darrow fan and his Shaolin’s pages are unbelievably fantastic. Kick Ass 3 # 5 was brilliant. And now, without further ado, here are December 2013 comics as per solicitations.

    ASTONISHING X-MEN #52 
    (W) Marjorie M. Liu (A) Mike Perkins (CA) Dustin Weaver • The explosive aftermath to the year's most talked about event!

The saga of The Minutemen begins with a bang as the Comedian is brutally murdered - but who could have killed him? 

    GHOSTS #1 (MR) 
    (W) Al Ewing & Various (A) Rufus Dayglo, Phil Jimenez & Various (CA) Dave Johnson. Check out this all-new anthology from some of the biggest talents in the industry! Stories spotlight a space heist on a ghost ship, a spirit who wants to play synthesizer in a techno band, a ghost-for-hire haunting agency and others dark, twisted tales. With stories and art by some of comics' greatest talents, this special features a cover by Dave Johnson, and a variant cover by Brendan McCarthy!

    INHUMANITY #1 
    (W) Matt Fraction (A/CA) Olivier Coipel • After INFINITY, the Marvel Universe has changed. • The Avengers find themselves face to face with Karnak who has discovered the secret of the Inhumans that will shake the Marvel U to its core. 

    JUDGE DREDD CLASSICS #6 
    (W) John Wagner, Alan Grant (A) Carlos Ezquerra (CA) Jim Fern
    East-Meg One's 'Mad Dog' Kazan introduces the Diktatorat to a new order of command, while Chief Justice Griffin has been kidnapped and brainwashed by the Sovs! Will Dredd administer justice on Griffin as swiftly as he does with East-Meg's soldiers?

    SHAOLIN COWBOY #1
    (W/A) Geof Darrow (CA) Geof Darrow, Peter Doherty. The Shaolin Cowboy returns, but nowhere in sight is there a dead Robin, any infinity gauntlets, or a single conquering Ultron-just flat-out action, intrigue, and plenty of roadkill. Geof Darrow's slow-talkin', kung-fu-gripping hero proves once again, in this brand-new new series, that the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a chainsaw! 

    SIDEKICK #4 CVR A MANDRAKE & HIFI (MR)

The last days of Hitler's reign of terror are coming but the monsters of the master race are determined to make their enemies pay to the last. Available with Regular or Wraparound cover by Caanan White , Propaganda Poster cover by Michael Dipascale, and a special Blitzkrieg Incentive cover by Caanan White 

    VERTIGO ESSENTIALS Y THE LAST MAN #1 (MR) 
    (W) Brian K. Vaughan (A) Pia Guerra, José Marzan (CA) J. G. Jones. A science-fiction epic begins in the first issue of the hit series Y: THE LAST MAN, as a mysterious plague wipes out every male on Earth-with the exception of escape artist Yorick Brown and his pet monkey, Ampersand.

    YOUNG AVENGERS #14 
    (W) Kieron Gillen (A)  Various (CA) Jamie McKelvie. RESOLUTION (1 of 2) • We gather in a night club, and have a string of connected and overlapping stories starring our cast. It's a completely and unprecedented approach to a story in comics history. There are no parallels. We refuse to accept it. •Team Young Avengers are joined by an all-start cast of some people we really like. Each individual section gets one individual artist. It's a metaphor, probably. • It's been one hell of a year. In two episodes, one before and one after the new year, the Young Avengers get resolution. You guys do as well.

    ¡El año acaba de empezar y yo estoy celebrando con una sobredosis cuádruple de Gillen! Dos ejemplares de Young Avengers, Three y Uber (esto sí que es bueno). Aunque el inicio es lento, las últimas páginas de Inhumanity me sorprendieron ¡vaya final! Mis cómics favoritos del mes son de Dark Horse & Icon. Me refiero al primer número de Shaolin Cowboy; sin duda merece un premio especial: gran historia y espléndido arte, siempre he sido un fan de Geof Darrow y sus páginas de Shaolin son increíblemente fantásticas. Kick Ass 3 # 5 fue brillante. Y ahora, sin más preámbulos, aquí están los cómics de diciembre de 2013.

    ASTONISHING X-MEN #52
    El explosivo desenlace del evento más hablado del año. 

    DC COMICS ESSENTIALS WATCHMEN #1
    Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons.

    GHOSTS #1 (MR)
    Al Ewing, Rufus Dayglo, Phil Jimenez et al. 

    INHUMANITY #1
    El universo ha cambiado. Los Vengadores se encuentran cara a cara con KARNAK, quien ha descubierto el secreto de los Inhumanos. 

    JUDGE DREDD CLASSICS #6
    La guerra del apocalipsis continúa.

    KICK-ASS 3 #5 (OF 8) (MR)
    El impactante evento destinado a cambiar el universo de KICK-ASS: ¡Dave consigue novia! Y un nuevo vigilante enmascarado aparece. 

    ONE FOR $1 ABE SAPIEN #1

    SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING TP BOOK 05 (MR)
    Alan Moore, Rick Veitch et al.

    SHAOLIN COWBOY #1
    El cowboy regresa, pero por ningún lado hay un Robin muerto, un guantelete del infinito o un conquistador cósmico. Sólo acción a raudales, intriga y muchos asesinatos de carretera. El héroe del habla lenta demuestra una vez más que para detener a los malos hace falta una sierra eléctrica.
    December comic books / cómics de diciembre
    I drew this in 2011 (page 2 of 7) / dibujé esto en el 2011 (página 2 de 7)

    SIDEKICK #4 CVR A MANDRAKE & HIFI (MR)
    FLYBOY regresa avergonzado a Ciudad Sol después de su fallido intento de iniciar una nueva carrera bajo un nombre distinto. Ahora es un hombre sin hogar, ridiculizado por la prensa y abandonado por aquellos que eran sus amigos. Está solo… hasta que encuentra a una notoria villana que le hace una oferta demasiada buena como para rehusarla. 

    THREE #3
    Maldigan al espartano temeroso. Quitadle la barba. Arrancadle el manto. Escupid sobre él. Si esta fuese tu condena, pocos años después de que los espartanos huyeran, la hipocresía sería ardiente. 

    UBER #2
    La maquinaria de guerra nazi introdujo soldados súper-poderosos en los últimos días de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Cuando un espía huye de Alemania, el mundo a su alrededor se desmorona bajo la matanza de estas armas vivientes, y los aliados luchan con contener la destrucción que dejan a su paso. Estos son los últimos días de terror de Hitler pero los monstruos de la raza suprema están determinados a hacer que sus enemigos padezcan.

    VERTIGO ESSENTIALS Y THE LAST MAN #1 (MR)
    Una misteriosa plaga ha eliminado a todos los hombres del planeta, a excepción de YORICK y su mono mascota.

    YOUNG AVENGERS #13
    Este cómic planea incluir una cantidad por encima del promedio de drama, conflictos (internos y externos) y acción. Tendrá 20 páginas. Y exhibirá de manera prominente intentos heroicos de salvar el mundo y besos.

    YOUNG AVENGERS #14
    Nos reunimos en un club nocturno, con historias conectadas que se superponen. Es un enfoque completamente sin precedentes en la historia del cómic. No hay paralelos. Nos rehusamos a aceptarlos. El equipo de Jóvenes Vengadores es acompañado por un elenco de gente que realmente nos gusta. Cada parte individual tiene un artista individual. Es una metáfora, probablemente. Ha sido un año del demonio. En dos episodios, uno antes y otros después de año nuevo, los Jóvenes Vengadores llegan a una conclusión.

    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.
