This Week in Comics – August 23, 2016

Oh my, I haven’t done one of these in forever! It feels like it’s been months since I’ve been able to do a This Week in Comics post, and I’m so happy that I can get this out before Wednesday.

This week’s post includes the end of the first Insexts arc, what looks to be a major moment in Civil War II, 3 Batverse titles, and, possibly, the plot for the Wonder Woman movie. Also, at least four of these reviews were written to the music of Toto, as I’ve recently found out that I’m a bigger fan than I thought I was.

Onto the comics:

Last Week in Comics – 1st Week of August 2016

I know what you’re thinking. It’s not the first week of August. However, these comics that I’m about to write about were definitely put on sale and bought during the week of August 3rd, so I’m going to talk about them in that context.

Also, two of the comics I’m writing about are bi-monthly. So reading this post before you pick up this week’s comics will probably help you out a bit.

Top 5 Wednesday: Authors You’re Waiting On Another Book From

It’s a good thing that I didn’t set this post to publish yet, because I would have had a blank page on my site right now. Thankfully, I knew that I wasn’t done.

In this week’s Top 5 Wednesday, I’m listing the five authors that I’m waiting for another book from. Four of the five authors were people I reviewed last summer, which is fine because a lot of my favorites are dead. One of my picks has a book being released in January, which is technically against the rules because I know when the book is coming. However, because January doesn’t count as the end of this year, this particular author still counts for me.

That being said, here’s my list:

Last Month in Comics – July 2016

You know what I just found out? Archie Comics puts the designation for whatever Variant cover you might have picked up on the bar code in the back of the comic. I’m about to start my third ongoing comic from the New Riverdale lineup, and I collect The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina for my cousin, but this is the first time that I’ve ever noticed this.

You learn something new everyday.

Now Archie Comics, doesn’t always call them variants on the cover, but the bar code designation will say whether it’s cover A, B, or whatever. Cover A being the main cover, and anything else being a variant. Midtown comics also lists the different covers that way on their site, along with the artist’s name.

In any case, here’s Last Month in Comics – the July edition:

Top 5 Wednesday: Most Unlikeable Characters

If I somehow manage to push out 5 posts in the next 5 days, I’ll be surprised and terribly accomplished. If not, I’ll still have managed to do one post for every week in July. That doesn’t seem like much, but anything is plenty when you’re depressed.

Today’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is Most Unlikeable (non-villain) Characters, which might be a bit of a reach for me. The thing about it is that it’s so much easier for me to pick out unlikeable characters in a show than I do in a book. In a book you end up knowing everyone’s motivations, so you tend to sympathize with them more. In a show, you only know what the directors and writers want you to know, so you make your own opinions. For me, that’s a little easier.

Yet and still, every written character is not meant to be liked.

Top 5 Wednesday: Most Recent Additions To Your Wish List

Oh gosh, when was the last time that I did a Top 5 Wednesday post? According to my calendar, it was March. Now I can’t vouch for April or May, but I’m pretty damn sure that I couldn’t relate to  any of June’s topics. July though? Only my own poor timing could stop me from doing any of these.

Everything on today’s list is coming from Amazon, because that’s where I’m most likely to build a wish list. GoodReads is great for tracking my reading, but my To-Read list doesn’t make much of a distinction between what’s already in my library and what’s still in the store waiting for me to buy it. I could clean it up a bit, but all of the secondary lists are connected to the three main ones, so it’s never as clean as you want it to be.

In any case, here are the most recent additions to my Amazon wish list (for books):

MNEK Is My Greatest Musical Find

Bold words, right? But you have to understand where I’m coming from.

Way back in 2014, I taught at a high school that managed to block just about every music app except SoundCloud. For me this was terribly unacceptable because my personal music library could only do so much. So I downloaded SoundCloud and made it work. At some point in the Fall of 2014, I found MNEK’s “The Rhythm” and my whole life changed.

Talking Heads

Ever since I started listening to podcasts, my goal has been to actually get on one. I eventually want to have one of my own, but I figured being on someone else’s would at least start the process. Last month, my dream came true and I got to guest on 2 podcasts and one video cast all within a 3 week timeframe.

Here’s the results:
