I don’t buy many new comics, but I bought this one! Lemire and Giffen! Set in the '80s during Invasion! Peacemaker backup! So far so good!
I liked it and am eager for more.
You can’t really go wrong with Giffen, especially his recent Gentlemen Ghost tale.
Gentleman Ghost, that is.
Oh boy, where was that? I missed it!
I mean, in whichever comic it was…in
@biff_pow Villains Giant #1. Available at better Walmarts now and at comic stores in a few weeks.
Ah, cripes. Scratch that bp.
It’s in Ghosts Giant #1, not the Villains book.
I loved the original Inferior 5. They were awesome !! Might need to check it out.
Would this book make E. Nelson Bridwell smile?
@DeSade I hope you like it if you do!
@Misfit it’s not really wacky yet
@biff_pow No prob Rob. If you pick up Ghosts Giant #1, be sure to jot down your thoughts on Mr. Giffen’s dance with The Man of The Pale Moonlit Night.
I realize this thread is like months old, but in hopes that at least the creative team sees this, I just wanted to say that this is a fantastic comic and was very sad to see it was cut down to the mini series 6 issues from the originally announced 12 issues. However I’m definitely going to start looking for more by Giffen, such a wonderfully written book!
I recommend, ahem, Ambush Bug
Thank you! I just added all of those to my read list here on the app! I’m willing to take more recommendations of titles current or old here at DC or elsewhere written by him. Or recommendations on similar writers I should also be reading?
you’re very welcome! i think there are other members more qualified to make good recommendations, so i’ll tag them
Duuuuude, the 1987 Justice League, THATS THE BOOK for a good time giggle. The Seinfeld of funnybooks, really.
Well, there’s the obvious Legion of Super-Heroes issues—
legion of substitute heroes:
early ambush bug appearances:
giffen’s doom patrol: DC Universe
gail simone’s plastic man has an irreverent sense of humor, too (as does all her work): DC Universe
L.E.G.I.O.N is a bit darker.
The 2006 Blue Beetle series. Similar themes of invasion and rising up from a street level, and Giffen was a co-creator.
