"Ganges" #2

With all of our coverage of New York Comic Con last week, I didn’t get a chance to update you all on what’s been happening with CBR’s Columnists and Reviewers, but with things a little calmer this weekend, we return to our weekly look at our editorial contributors from the previous week.

Before we get into last week’s contributors, I want to make sure you didn’t miss the latest and final Winterview as part of the McCloud Family Tourcasts. Winter and Sky McCloud did a video interview with Neil Gaiman that we published on the 17th. If you missed it, no worries �" here’s your chance to check out this not-to-be-missed interviewed. You’ve never seen Neil interviewed like this before.

Rich Johnston started us off last week with his latest LYING IN THE GUTTERS in which he offered up numerous rumors gleaned from NYCC and word on a new Warren Ellis series. Tuesday, Augie De Blieck Jr. continued the New York Comic Con theme sharing thoughts on the show in last week’s PIPELINE. The NYCC theme continued on Wednesday with PERMANENT DAMAGE in which he took a look at indie comics and how they’re represented at the major conventions. Thursday, Hannibal Tabu’s THE BUY PILE looks favorably upon six books with a buy and a lot more getting real close. And finally, closing out the week is the return of Erik Larsen’s ONE FAN’S OPINON as he takes issue with the use of Skrulls. Look for more from Erik this coming Friday.

Lots of great stuff in CBR’s columns last week. As always, to keep up to date on the latest you can visit the index pages for each column by clicking on the column of your choice from the drop down menus at the top of the page.

The CBR Reviews team continued to look at a wide variety of comic releases over the past week. Getting the lone five star review of the week, Greg McElhatton says “Ganges” #2 is “easily one of my favorite comics to show up this year.”. Timothy Callahan liked what he saw from Grant Morrison in “Batman” #675 while James Hunt equally enjoyed “Mighty Avengers” #12. Unfortunately, the love wasn’t there for the final issue of ”Countdown to Final Crisis” #1.

There's that and plenty more in the new CBR Reviews section. Or, check out reviews from our individual reviewers by following the links below.

That’s it for this week. CBR’s got some fun stuff planned for next weekend’s Free Comic Book Day. We’ll tell you more about that later this week. Thanks for visiting CBR and, hey, tell a friend!

Sincerely,

Jonah Weiland
