Gaumer’s Top New Ongoing Comics of 2014

We continue our review of the year that was 2014, and I wanted to cap off my series of articles covering the awesome of 2014 by highlighting this year’s comics that will persist into 2015 and beyond. Ongoing comics are one of my favorite aspects of the medium because they are there each and every month, provide an opportunity to tell elaborate stories with epic scope, and there’s nothing quite like a 50 issue investment paying off in spades. But, being a comic Nowist (coined term; trademark pending) I’m all about the new comics, and the freshness and excitement that comes along with them. Here’s my top new ongoing comic books of 2014.

Review: Squarriors #1

Squarriors #1I cannot say that I’m a huge fan of the Sentient Small Animal Genre. Mouse Guard, Mice Templar, even the great Maus took a bit of getting used to from me in order to even start page one. It’s not that I don’t like talking animals, I’m a huge Disney fan and talking animals were their bread & butter for decades. Many of these comic book depictions of rodents and other small animals did a great job with writing, but completely missed the mark when it came to the artwork. If I’m going to read a book starring mice, squirrels, and other animals, I want them to legitimately look like the mice, squirrels, and other animals they are supposed to be, and not just some low-talent attempt at drawing cartoon beasts. You might as well just put people in your comic and forget the beastly slant. Squarriors #1 is basically your typical sentient small animal story, but the artwork is brilliantly captivating in its realism, making this the sentient small animal book we deserve.

Gaumer’s Top Comic Book Limited Series of 2014

Outright Geekery’s series of posts highlighting the very best of the year that was 2014 continues with the comic books that pulled of a whole lot with very little. It’s easy to pull off epic stories in titles that span dozens of issues and years of building, but doing that in less than a dozen books takes some real talent, and the impact on the reader is as relatively great as the number of comic pages is relatively small. Here’s my top comic book limited series of 2014. Continue reading Gaumer’s Top Comic Book Limited Series of 2014
