TAIMUR DAR: For the final decade, Archie Comics has reinvented itself fairly a bit and develop into related once more within the public sphere. I’ve checked a few of their publishing output, however by no means actually devoted the right time to totally learn Archie Comics. So I intend to rectify that with the primary quantity of the “New Riverdale” relaunched Archie title from author Mark Waid and artist Fiona Staples. And I’ll even be studying some more moderen Archie Comics fare with Jughead’s Time Police from author Sina Grace and artists Derek Appeal, Matt Herms, and Jack Morelli.
DEAN SIMONS: Comixology launched a patch this week so I examined it out and it crashed (and froze, and crashed some extra). So on to the options! One I found was that there’s a Tintin app and the scans are virtually HD comics good(!). So this weekend I’m revisiting Hergé’s Tintin within the Land of the Soviets.

As an alternative, I’m diving into historical Physician Who historical past (in preparation for an upcoming conference panel) with About Time: The Unauthorized Information to Physician Who Quantity 1 by Tat Wooden & Lawrence Miles. It’s an extremely detailed abstract and evaluation of the primary three years (1963-1966) of the collection. Beneficial for individuals who love snarky annotations. I’m additionally sampling The Finest Murders Are British, a set of educational essays on English crime dramas, largely due to the title. (But additionally as a result of two chapters are about Sherlock, with one other on the function of girls within the style.)
