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 NOVEMBER 15, 2017
Amazing Spider-Man #791 (Marvel Comics)
Jump from the Read Pile. The "Parker Luck" -- a big part of the Spider-Man mythos -- means that it's hard for Peter Parker to ever get ahead. This issue found the perfect way to balance that by introducing a new, flexible job for the title character and a relationship that actually makes sense for him. This done-in-one Dan Slott script is brilliantly crafted and the visuals from Stuart Immonen, Wade von Grawbadger, Rain Beredo and Joe Caramagna are executed perfectly. Funny, action packed and a perfect fit in a deeper fictional universe.
WHAT'S THE PROGNOSIS?
Super entertaining start.
