comics for the week of 09/29/10.

If my younger self could see me now: only one comic book this week.

Powers 6 - Bendis continues to bring the goodness in this new run of Powers, and I'm glad to see that he's finally acknowledged that it's bi-monthly. This issue served as the beginning of two plotlines, but I had no idea that they'd be intersecting so quickly. We see the return of Deena Pilgrim (and how we've missed her!) and we see the death of an apparent God - although we've kind of already dealt with this storyline, right Bendis? Regardless, there is (as usual) tons to honestly laugh out loud at in this issue (sometimes I think Bendis just wants an excuse to draw the most primal, fucked up shit that he can think of and tries to pass it off as quote-unquote superhero comics) but, again, as almost always, it's not bad. It's humorous at times, but it's never funny-bad. The scene with Walker fighting the space aliens and Calista joining him is hilarious, but it's not like it doesn't work. The best part of the issue was his new partner's splash page where we see what a terrible, lying bitch she is, and the last page reveal with Pilgrim. Good read.

Book of the week is a de facto on this one, so I'm not even going to officially give it.
