It’s that time again! This time the monthly showcase includes Gigantic, Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite, and BATMAN: EGO AND OTHER TAILS. Remember, comments at the forum are encouraged and much appreciated. Enjoy!

And check back at the end of each week for updates. No time? Subscribe to the Impulse Creations newsletter.

Suggest-a-topic is on! Is there a comic, trade, or graphic novel you’d like to see reviewed on the forums? What about something that’s been on your mind and you think is worth discussing? Leave a comment on this post or any of my Impulse Creations weekly updates (or shoot me an email) suggesting a good article idea that you’d like to see me talk about over on the Impulse forums, and I might just take you up on it! And of course, drop your name (and homepage, if you have one) in the article as credit.

  1. Gigantic looks really cool. Reminds me of the South Park episode with the same premise and Nguyen’s artwork is always welcome in mi casa. I’m not sure if there is a lot they can do with this story down the road but it might flesh out to be something they can get a lot of mileage out of.

    I don’t know much about Umbrella Academy but it has been getting a lot of recognition lately. I want to check it out.

    Cooke definitely has a unique take on Batman. I like his art style in small doses. I didn’t really care for Here Be Monsters his other stuff is pretty good.

  2. I just artists whose name ends in “Nguyen.” 🙂 Eric Nguyen, Dustin Nguyen. Hee hee.

    Umbrella Academy is worth it, TRUST ME.

    Yeah, “Here Be Monsters” was rather weak. But I do like Cooke, too. Or at least I liked the book. I don’t have that much exposure to Cooke’s stuff.

  3. Whoa, I just now realized that there are two different Nguyens. This whole time I thought you were talking about the same guy from Detective. LOL
    Man don’t you know I feel really smart right about now.

  4. Haha, no worries! I made the same mistake until I opened the book and saw “Eric.”
