WHAT IS THE BUY PILE?
Every week Hannibal Tabu (winner of the 2012 Top Cow Talent Hunt/blogger/novelist/poet/jackass on Twitter/head honcho of Komplicated) grabs a whole lotta comics. These periodicals are quickly sorted (how) into two piles -- the "buy" pile (a small pile most weeks, comprised of planned purchases) and the "read" pile (often huge, often including comics that are really crappy but have some value to stay abreast of). Thursday afternoons you'll be able to get his thoughts (and they're just the opinions of one guy, so calm down, and here's some common definitions used in the column) about all of that ... which goes something like this ...
THE BUY PILE FOR OCTOBER 11, 2017
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #25 (Marvel Comics)
Ultron is a murderous artificial intelligence that has plagued Avengers, galaxies and whole timelines. In this, Squirrel Girl keeps him busy while her friends attack him in a way few machines are equipped to properly defend against. This is another wildly entertaining Ryan North script and the action packed visuals from Erica Henderson, Rico Renzi and Travis Lanham can make even computer programming worthy of a heroic monologue. Lots of laughs, fantastically balanced script, this issue continues a long, long run of rock solid entertainment.
