¡AWW YEAH!

Just another WordPress.com weblog

Sorry about last week. I overextended myself a bit, but we’re back on track.

Before we get to the current books I’ll proudly say I’ve read “The Life and Times of  Scrooge McDuck” and it’s AWESOME. Really. I’ll write a review for it by July. That’s a promise. Unless I die. Then that won’t happen.

Boom Kids!

Donald Duck and Friends #351

I’m pretty sure most kids today have no idea that Donald is actually a world renown super spy. So known in fact that I’m not sure, even he, at times remembers.

Muppet King Arthur #2

You really can’t give me enough Arthurian stories. I’ll take about any retelling that I can get. (Well, not Martin Lawrence’ “Black Knight” or Camelot 3000, but just about anything else). This Muppet retelling is actually good. I recommend picking it up.

Wall-E #3

Enter the cockroach.

Johnny DC

GET THAT OUTTA HERE!

Billy Batson and the Magic Of Shazam! #13

Light week on the wallet for Johnny DC Fanboys. Just one title, at least it’s a great one. This is the current artist’s last issue on the book, and he’s using it to bring back Black Adam. I am thoroughly excited for this.

Marvel Kids

Marvel Adventures Spider-Man #60

This book is winding down before it’s relaunch later this year and it’s doing so very well. This week’s story is Spidey and the NYPD trying to find Emma Frost. Should be nothing but fun. That’s not sarcasm.

The Marvelous Land of Oz #4

This is one of the best books you can be reading right now, All-Ages or no. It’s super good. This is my favorite of the sixteen thousand Wizard of Oz books. I love seeing what Skottie Young is doing on every page.

Wednesday February 10th releases

I failed in my duty to you guys last week. I apologize. I thought I would have more free time than it turned out I did. No big. I actually did do half of what I said I would and read some books. I’m getting closer and closer to doing what I have to to make this blog even remotely useful.

Here’s the weeks books!

Boom Kids!

Muppet King Arthur!

Boom is permitted to keep churning these out as long as they’re good. Peter Pan was an improvement over . . .what was the first one? That’s the kind of research I do. But Peter Pan was better than that. Let’s hope this is awesomer.
The Muppet Show Comic Book

I hope Ryan (former? cohost of Comics Playground and all around huge muppets fan) is reading this.

Walt Disney Comics and Stories

I was asking what was going to happen to this title since the super heroes got their own book, and this is the answer. Mickey epics. I’m totally down for that.

Johnny DC

Scooby Doo #153

This book is on 153 issues. Just stop and think about that. That’s 153 different ghosts, ghouls, goblins, monsters, or whatever they’ve unmasked. That’s cool. I’m about six issues behind on this title, but I’ll get to it and love every single one.

Super Friends #24

Mad Scientists convention! No super friends allowed. I’m cool with that.

Marvel Comics

Super Hero Squad #2

The first issue was like a slice of the show.  At least this book is decently affordably priced. Not so much for the next book on this list.

Tails of the Pet Avengers

Woah guys. $3.99? Let’s slow our roll a little bit. I really enjoyed the first series “Lockjaw and the Pet Avengers.”

Wednesday Feb. 3rd Comic releases.

Before we get to the releases I would just like to issue a small thanks to Boom Kids, who make it the easiest for me to find out which of their books are releasing each week. It’s not the best system in the world, but it’s something. DC is second best because the difference between their Johnny DC titles and Regular titles is very easy to spot going through their weekly releases. The actual DC kids website, however, leaves a lot to be desired. The comics page is just a list of books in alphabetical order. No dates beside anything, just title and issue number.

Marvel is the worst. Maybe I just am that old and out of the loop, but that site is impossible to navigate. On the Marvel Kids you would hardly know they produce comic books. There’s a swank button for comics, but when the page loads it’s funny Hulk web comics. I like those, but there’s not any mention of the Marvel Adventure books, or an X-babies, or anything. Currently on the main page there’s a link to view a preview of the upcoming “Marvel Adventures Iron Man #1” but that’s it.

That’s enough of me complaining from this week. It’s not all bad. Just could be a little bit better, is all.

Boom Kids!


Big week for these guys as they debut two new series. I am heartened to see that Disney buying Marvel has not put any dents in their relationship with Boom so far. Disney had stated they would keep all current plans in place, but when corporate structures change you can never be too sure.

Disney’s Hero Squad: Ultraheroes #1

I wonder what these characters getting their own book means for the future of the Walt Disney Comics title and what stories will be told there.

Toy Story Ongoing #1

More Toy Story tales is fine with me.

Wizards of Mickey Mouse #1

I’m actually excited for this title. I adore Mickey’s Magic universe.

Valentine’s Classics Hardcover

Yeah! A hardcover colleciton of old romantic tales. I don’t believe I’ve ever read any of these. I’m not picking this up this month, but possibly this summer I’ll find it on sale.

Johnny DC!


Cartoon Network Action  Pack #46

This is really turning into a Ben 10 Showcase. This month’s issue has two Ben Ten stories in it, with a little Samurai Jack to break it up.

Looney Tunes #183

What! A retelling of the story of Samson and Delilah with Pepe Le Pew? I’m definitely down.

Finally DC is putting out the third collection of “Tiny Titans” named Sidekickin’ It. This will collect issues 13-18 and is a wonderful book for young children. I strongly suggest any of these books to parents with kids just learning how to read.

Marvel Comics

Nada. Play sad trombone right here. The closest thing I saw was a Marvel Heartbreaker books if you have anyone teens in the house that are particular fans of high school drama and romance stories.

That’s it for this week’s releases, stay tuned as I only work a half day on Friday at my real job, and am phoning it in on my second. That means I’ll not only have time to read all the books from this week, but I may even find time to write about them. Maybe? Let’s hope for the best here.
