Raven Rant:  Crossover Events at the Big Two Comic Companies

In this episode, one book was voted, “BOOK OF THE WEEK” by both Zach & Stu.

Also – one book received the dreaded, “F-” from both Zach & Stu.

AM21AoU10Can you guess which is which?

Which one utilized a cool storytelling technique and which one that isn’t worth the toilet paper its printed on?

Which one acts as a window into an ever-rising comic book writer superstar and which one showcases the sad decline of a former hot writer?

Huh?

Well?!

Can you tell which one is the work of a visionary and which one reads like it was written by a committee of monkeys and is basically one long advertising pamphlet?!

CAN YOU TELL WHICH IS WHICH?

Sigh.

Top 5:  Comic Book Fathers

Enrico Fermi (Italian: [enˈri.ko ˈfeɾ.mi]; 29 September 1901 – 28 November 1954) was an Italian theoretical and experimental physicist, best known for his work on the development of Chicago Pile-1, the first nuclear reactor, and for his contributions to the development of quantum theory, nuclear and particle physics, and statistical mechanics. Along with Robert Oppenheimer, he is referred to as “the father of the atomic bomb”.[1] He held several patents related to the use of nuclear power, and was awarded the 1938 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on induced radioactivity and the discovery of transuranic elements. Throughout his life Fermi was widely regarded as one of the very few physicists who excelled both theoretically and experimentally.

He’s also a dirty space alien.

Just read The Manhattan Projects from Image Comics. Written by Jonathan Hickman and drawn by Nick Pitarra, it may be the best book on the stands right now. And the latest issue, #12, is already in the running for single issue of the year.

Why aren’t you reading this book?

You should be reading this book.

Best Book of 2013? It's possible!
