Wednesday Comics on Thursday - December 2, 2010

Comics were delayed 1 day this week so I just picked them up this afternoon. Techincally this is Thursday Comics on Thursday! My comic shop opens at 2:00 pm on new release day because they don't get their new comics until early on the release day. That will change next year when they start receiving the comics the day before.

This week, there were a lot of comics that I really like!

George R.R. Martin's Fevre Dream, #9 of 10

Wednesday Comics on Thursday - December 2, 2010
The ten-issue vampire epic on the bayou from the writer of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels rushes to its conclusion in this penultimate issue! From the New York Times Best-selling author, George R. R. Martin, comes a tale of vampire clans, death and debauchery, legendary blood masters, and even a few epic steamboat races on the muddy Mississippi. This is Martin's FEVRE DREAM, an antebellum story of power, loss, and the fever of bloodlust. Abner Marsh set out to hunt down the Fevre Dream, but it was Damon Julian who captured Marsh! Now, with his only ally York trapped under the control of the evil blood-master Julian, will Abner be able to escape from Sour Billy before dark? Each issue of this stunning full-color epic is illustrated by Rafa Lopez, an artist whose skilled line captures every moonlit drop of blood in delicious detail. Adapted by the Hugo-nominated author Daniel Abraham, this version of FEVRE DREAM stays faithful to Martin's original dark vision, while bringing the torture and joy of his vampires to almost-human life. This haunting series is available with Regular and Wraparound painted covers by Felipe Massafera and a very limited Nightmare retailer incentive.

Wednesday Comics on Thursday - October 28, 2010

I picked up quite a few comics yesterday. One comic book publisher seemingly published a few months worth of comics yesterday. But those are not among my favorites. Don't get me wrong, I like all of the comics that I collect, but some are more special to me than others. Here are this week's "special" comics.

Fevre Dream #8 of 10

Each issue of Fevre Dream has a regular cover, a Nightmare cover and a Wraparound cover. I have to say that theWraparound for Issue 8 is exceptional. It's perfect for October!

... From the New York Times Best-selling author, George R. R.

But are one man and one vampire strong enough to stand against the evil of Damon Julian? When the dark bloodmaster sets foot on the Fevre Dream, a bloody fight is about to begin...
