SPOTLIGHT ON: Avengers Children's Crusade

The Avengers Children's Crusade is a book I checked out knowing absolutely nothing about the Young Avengers, but after one issue, I was hooked. Now that I've gone back and read The Young Avengers Vol. 1: Sidekicks and Vol.2: Family Matters, I'm even more stoked for the next installment. This a great story with a group of dynamic characters who are just as interesting when fighting crime as they are in dealing with more personal issues. My favorites are Hawkeye, a cool chick who kicks butt without having superpowers, and Wiccan and Hulking, who's super cute romantic subplot is a huge draw for me. The amazing art and character designs cement this as a must read for me. I love this series because of the depth put into both the characters and the plotlines, and I can't wait for more.

Johnny the Homicidal Maniac Director’s Cut TP

Dark and disturbingly funny, JTHM follows the adventures of Johnny (you can call him Nny), who lives with a pair of styrofoam doughboys that encourage his madness, a wall that constantly needs a fresh coat of blood, and his victims in various states of torture! Collecting issues #1-7 of Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, as well as material seen before only in Carpe Noctem Magazine.

JTHM is officially the first comic book I ever read. It is incredibly random and funny in a twisted way. Be sure to read the Noodle Boy pages, because they’re my favorites.
