Wednesday's Loot: Part 1 - 25 July 2007

Okay I've got quite a few more comics than I'm used to and little to no time to actually read them. I got through two today at lunch and hope to get a few more read this week while I start the process of fighting a parking ticket in Ottawa, which ironically will involve a lot of driving.

The Spirit #8
Who else but Darwyn Cooke can mix up a comic with a LOL CATZ! joke and a classic men’s wear joke? This is still top notch comics that is as fun as the golden age stuff but perfect for the modern fan. You don’t need to know the original material but it can add an additional layer of appreciation. It’s beautiful, it’s fun and it’s what comics should be.

Shazam and the Monster Society of Evil #4
And more great comics here. Yes bright colours and a mash up of classic with the modern all brought through a lens of fun. The ending leaves the door open for a series, which would be welcome if it could come out on a regular basis. Fun stuff here.
