A weekend leisure reading review…because sometimes Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!

 

Mark Waid. The Rocketeer: Cargo of Doom.  San Diego, CA: IDW Publishing, March 5th 2013. 104 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Do you remember the movie the Rocketeer?  As a kid I seen commercials for it and never got to watch it until recently.  The Rocketeer is a story of a young man name Cliff Secord who found a rocket backpack.  He goes around doing good with it.  After watching the movie I wanted to read comic books about the Rocketeer so I picked up this graphic novel.  As my first reading of the Rocketeer it didn’t disappoint!  In fact I want to read more adventures of the Rocketeer as a result of this book.

A weekend leisure reading review…because sometimes Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!  So here’s my first comic book of the year!

Mark Waid.  Batman/Deathblow: After the Fire. New York, NY: DC Comics, May 1st 2003. 160 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

I picked this up because of the cover.  Yes I know you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover but it seems pretty cool.  But I also decided to read this book because who authored it (Brian Azzarello); previously I have read comics that he wrote the story for and I enjoyed them.  I also thought this was worth reading because it introduces to me a character that is new to me: Deathblow.  What did I think of it?

A weekend leisure reading review…because sometimes Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!  Thought I post on comics after Tom’s recent post on DC comics.

Mark Waid.  Batman in Barcelona: Dragon’s Knight. New York, NY: DC Comics, July 1st, 2009. 48 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Usually we read of Batman doing his mission in his beloved city of Gotham.  But what is it like if Batman went to another city to fight one of his villains?  In this one shot story Batman goes to Spain to the city of Barcelona to fight the Killer Croc.  I love the premise that Batman is in Barcelona in another city and where the police doesn’t recognize who Batman is!

A weekend reading review…because sometimes Pastors need a break from heavy reading also.  Haven’t posted these in a while but need a mental break after staying up till 5 AM today to finish up a sermon outline.

Francesco Francavilla. The Black Beetle: Kara Bocek.  Milwaukie, OR: Dark Horse Comics, September 6th 2017. 56 pp.

Purchase: Amazon

Looking for a fun comic short comic story of caped heroes taking place in the 1940s?  You might like this adventure!  About a year ago I read the first work on the Black Beetle titled The Black Beetle No Way Out.  I almost didn’t read it as I thought it would be cheesy and plus in real life I don’t like Beetles.  But the work impressed me very much.  Which is why I picked up this work that was also written and drawn by Francesco Francavilla, an Italian graphic novel artist and writer.

A lighthearted weekend reading review…because sometimes Pastors need a break from heavy reading also.

Jason Henderson and Tony Salvaggio.  Clockwerx.  Los Angeles, CA: Humanoids, September 21, 2016.  112 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This was a fun graphic novel (comics) to read.  The story takes place at London in 1899.  For those who enjoy “steampunk” theme graphic novel this is one that readers will enjoy.  As one would expect from a steampunk genre Clockwex mixes the nineteenth century time period with technology that’s ahead of its time and yet it does this without feeling like a sci-fi.

If you love super heroes from the pulp era of the 1930-50s you would love this work!  In this comic book we see nine different pulp superheroes such as the Green Hornet with his sidekick Kato, Zorro, the Black Bat and the Shadow joining forces in one story to fight against a political enemy known as the Justice Party.  And what a treat it was to read this graphic novel and see these characters coming together and fighting against evil!
