March comic books / cómics de marzo

Written by Arion on Monday, April 08 2013 and posted in Reviews

So far this has been my favorite month of the year. So many great comics at the same time! Let’s start with two very good Avengers (Uncanny & Young) issues, and a very interesting first chapter for Judge Dredd Year One (which simply proves that you need a British writer to write about this British creation). Image’s Sex is another promising new series. Mike Carey’s arc about zombies in the Unwritten universe is some of the best stuff I’ve seen from Vertigo in quite a long time, really amazing. But this time the best comics don’t come from the United States, at least not directly. I cannot emphasize how much I have enjoyed reading the first 6 volumes of Neon Genesis Evagelion (which have been collected in two oversized volumes). But if I had to choose the best comic I’ve read not only in March but in the first trimester of 2013 it would be Judge Dredd Origins. It’s so awesome that I’m still trying to process the intensity of it all. Once I feel ready I’ll write a review about it. You can count on it. And without further ado here are March comics as per solicitations:

Hasta ahora este ha sido mi mes favorito del año. ¡Tantos cómics estupendos al mismo tiempo! Empecemos con dos muy buenos números de Avengers (Uncanny y Young) y un muy interesante primer capítulo de Judge Dredd: Year One (que simplemente demuestra que necesitas un escritor británico para escribir sobre esta creación británica). Sex de Image es otra prometedora nueva serie. El arco de Mike Carey sobre zombis en el universo de Unwritten es de lo mejor que he visto en Vertigo últimamente, realmente asombroso. Pero esta vez los mejores cómics no vienen de Estados Unidos, al menos no directamente. No puedo hacer énfasis en lo mucho que disfruté leyendo los primeros 6 volúmenes de Neon Genesis Evagelion (que han sido compilados en dos tomos extra grandes). Pero si tuviera que elegir el mejor cómic que he leído no sólo en marzo sino en el primer trimestre del 2013, sería Judge Dredd: Origins es tan genial que todavía estoy procesándolo. Cuando me sienta preparado, escribiré una reseña. Pueden contar con ello. Y sin mayores preámbulos aquí van los cómics de marzo:



FASHION BEAST #7 WRAP CVR (MR)
Las estrellas en el cielo se ocultan tras la pesadilla de un mundo post-industrial. Pero DOLL se ha convertido en una estrella y tiene todo lo que siempre quiso. ¿Y qué pasa con la maraña de misterios alrededor del Patrón?

Finalmente hay una buena razón para entrar a una tienda de cómics: para comprar SEXO. Simon Cooke se ha retirado de su ‘estilo de vida alternativo’ y ha regresado a la ciudad que había jurado proteger. Ahora es un ciudadano común y corriente… por fin el término ‘adulto’ se aplicará al sexo.

SHRUGGED VOL 2 #1 (OF 6) DIRECT MARKET CVR

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.
