Happy Fifth Week! Typically, the fifth week tends to be fairly slow, but I picked up 10 books, including last week’s monster tome that was Batman #50. That’s right, I’m still testing those DC waters for something fun and interesting…still waiting for it…
Anyone read the comic Nonplayer?
This is a beautiful comic — like no joke gorgeous art — that has been plagued by extensive delays. The first issue was released in 2011 to critical and fandom acclaim, but it took until the summer of this year for there to be a second issue. And still no third as of this posting.
So, when I made a Twitter post about our own delays in getting posts up on the site:

This week also marks the start of the next Marvel/Netflix show, Jessica Jones, based off the excellent Bendis/Gaydos Alias series from the early 2000s.
We’ll be putting up an installment of Small Screen Comics this week, where I’ll take a look at the Alias series, the character of Jessica Jones, and the comic-versions of the supporting characters that you’ll see in the TV series. Keep a look out for the update!
