Fresh Ink With Blair Butler

Posted December 20, 2007 - By Eugene Morton

For most of us, comic book shops aren’t merely a place for buying illustrated books about costumed crusaders, they’re a haven, a safe place where we can talk about the titans which occupy worlds that only exist on the printed page and in our collective imagination.

They are a place to seriously discuss the pitfalls and triumphs of the dedicated super heroes we love and malevolent villains we loathe.

For the faithful, they have a sacred quality to them and nothing ruins that feeling of sanctity more than returning home from the local shop for some quality reading time only to discover that you’ve purchased, polybagged and boarded the print and paper equivalent of a Uwe Boll film.

Don’t let that happen. Hear what comic expert Blair Butler has to say about this week’s slew of releases and avoid breaking into another fit of nerd rage.

Also, a big “thanks” goes out to Golden Apple Comics who were kind enough to allow us to use their space to make the magic that is Fresh Ink. For all of your comic book needs and more, check out Golden Apple. Your inner fanboy will thank you. 

Today, Blair will give her picks for the best comic books and graphic novels of 2007!

    I have to mention the Brave in the Bold hardcover by Mark Waid & George Perez that just came out. Every page is like sugar. :) It's hard to beat a team up between Supergirl and Lobo.

    I also enjoyed the 52 trade paperbacks, although some other writers like J1m Starlin complained about the outcomes. Maybe the commentary made it twice as good.

    Hey Blair,

    Thought your comic book picks for 2007 were real good, but I thought that “Spider Man: The Other” should have been the super hero comic of 2007, with it’s innovative story line and great artistic value, and the original story witch is a throw back to the Neil Gaiman comic books of yester year (circa 2005).

    Thought your other pics were good, and I hope I get “The Escapist” for Christmas.

    P.S. Blair, what is your fav comic book store?
