S Time's tighter this week but we all still need comics. Here's a handful that you should check out this week. Chime in with what you'll be getting in the comments below.
Indie comics legend Peter Bagge takes on interactive media culture. Bagge's not a gamer or a tech enthusiast as far as I can tell, but I think that'll make this work perceptive in a different way. The premise involves going back through your life and seeing what you'd change. The artist's kinetic cartooning always unveils some well-observed truths about human nature so this should be a funny read.
Justice League #8
The latest issue of DC Comics' premiere team book turns a classic bit of Justice League lore—Green Arrow turning down membership—on its ear. This time, Green Arrow wants in but his quest for membership hits a few snags. Geoff Johns writes character clashes well so it'll be interesting to see how he handles the new corporate crusader Green Arrow.
The Shadow #1
The original creature-of-the-night crimefighter—Batman's spiritual granddad, if you will—comes back in a new series from Dynamite. I'll be getting this to see how the creators try to re-introduce the classic character to an all new audience
Manhattan Projects #2
Jonathan Hickman's alt-reality take on the government program responsible for the atomic bomb is the most balls-out gonzo thing he's written so far. Incredible amounts of gore get balanced with an icy-cold scientific tone, making this book feel slightly unhinged. That's a good thing.
