Coby's Top 5 Comics of the Week - 7/16/14

I spent all morning Thursday reading comics and it was wonderful! I think I'll do that every Thursday! Here, I'll share with you my Top 5, their solicit text, what I liked most, and their score on a 10-point scale.

Daredevil Director's Cut


I watched the Director's Cut of 2003's Daredevil, and it was good! I actually liked it.

Watching Superman with My Son

I bought the Superman 5 Film Collection a while ago, but I'm just now getting around to watching it. I decided to watch them all with my 5-year-old son, Jayden, which made for a pretty entertaining experience. If I've seen these movies before, it was a long time ago and I don't really remember them; and I know Jayden hasn't seen them. So you're getting our reactions here to us watching the movies for (basically) the first time. I'm not including screenshots, so if you've watched this movie recently, it'll probably make more sense--but hopefully I've described things well enough that you can follow along. Here are my thoughts, as well as Jayden's behaviors during the movie. I hope you find them as entertaining as I did!

Coby's Preview of the Week: Secret Avengers #5

Each week, pretty much every upcoming comic gets a 5-page preview, released through ComicBookResources or ComicVine or some other comic news site... and each week, in addition to my Top 5 Comics of the Week, I'll also try to go through these Previews and give to you the one that has me most excited as Coby's Preview of the Week.

Coby's Top 5 Comics of the Week - 7/9/14

Eventually I would love to start writing for a real comics website. The only problem is, I'm not really ready for that kind of commitment right now. To practice getting something in on a schedule (while not having to deal with the pressure of actually being held accountable to anyone other than myself), every Friday, I'll do my Top 5 Comics of the Week. I won't go into too much detail in the Weekly Top 5; just the solicitation text, what I liked most about it, and the rating on a scale of 1 to 10.

This week's picks:

The Mocking Dead



I got my Dynamite 10th Anniversary Humble Bundle yesterday, and with it came what is now my favorite mini-series about zombies ever: Fred Van Lente's The Mocking Dead.

You would think, based on the title and the art and the CDDC ad, that this comic would be nothing but a spoof of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead, and spoofs are stupid and not worth your time (as we are reminded every time Marlon Wayans makes another movie). You would be wrong. It is so much more than that!

Coby's Preview of the Week: Secret Avengers #6

Every week, pretty much every upcoming comic gets a 5-page preview (typically the first 5 pages of the comic), released through ComicBookResources or ComicVine or some other comic news site. Every week, in addition to my Top 5 Comics of the Week, I'll also try to go through these Previews and give to you the one that has me most excited as Coby's Preview of the Week.
