Comic Station Issue #18 – May 1st 2013

Comic Station Feature
We at Comic Station try to highlight new releases and other series many might otherwise overlook. We typically don't report on long-standing series unless revolutionary.
New Releases: This week on Comic Station the biggest publisher might not be the best. The Movement #1 from DC Comics features kids who use technology and super powers to enforce their territory. From Image Comics, Ten Grand #1 features a mob enforcer on a path of redemption and the chance to spend just five more minutes with his deceased girlfriend. As my favorite of this weeks Comic Station, Suicide Risk #1 from Boom Publishers follows a regular cop – maybe – who fights against supervillains in a world where heroes are scarce and powers can be bought for the right price.
Review: The Victories: Transhuman #1 from Dark Horse Comics takes the Comic Station to a realm of deeper meanings than most comics have now-a-days. From world-encompassing themes of humanity to personal struggles with self-image. Not for young readers, both due to the high level of issues delved into, but the vulgar language and occasional use of nudity. A thinking man's comic and one that takes a direction rarely seen.
Recommendation: Scott recommends Batman: The Killing Joke on this issue of Comic Station. An oldie, but an amazing read and still an essential part of the Batman mythos.
