Books Benty Bought – Trades and Hardcovers for the week of Oct. 1st

whatbentybought1

 

New title, same dude…let’s take a look at the Books Benty Bought. I promise I won’t talk about myself in 3rd person for the remainder of the article. This was a big week, with some big books. Who doesn’t love an omnibus?
 *Thanks to Industrial for the swanky new featured image. I’m going to start wearing a monocle now.

GI JOE COMPLETE COLLECTION HC VOL 03

Buy on Amazon

The next in the complete hardcover collections of the ‘80s Marvel comics series. Other than the file cards or what went on inside my head, the Marvel series defined GI Joe way more for me than the cartoon ever would or could. I’m going to be collecting this series for what seems like forever since the initial series went on for so long. While the title lost some of its power once it hit the ‘90s, it’s smack dab in the middle of the good stuff with this volume. These collections have been fantastic so far, with great reproductions, great colors and big wide pages. It’s been great to read the old stuff in such immaculate collections. Even with the quality of some of the newer GI Joe stories, nothing will touch Larry Hama’s ability to define a universe.

FANTASTIC FOUR BY HICKMAN OMNIBUS HC VOL 01

Buy on Amazon

The Fantastic Four are my favorite “teamily” in comics, and they always benefit when they have a writer that gets what the team is about, taking Stan and Jack’s initial intentions and running with it. John Byrne did it, Mark Waid did it, and I believe Hickman did it as well. This collects his Fantastic four and Future Foundation work.

METABARONS ULTIMATE COLLECTED EDITION

Buy on Amazon

I’ve wanted to read this for a long long time, and I finally bit and bought this ultimate edition from Humanoids inc. It seems like this and Incal are always held up as great and powerful in comic book achievements and Alexander Jodorowsky as a great writer, so I’m looking forward to digging into it. Now I just need to backtrack and grab the Incal as well.

POPEYE TP VOL 02

Buy on Amazon

POPEYE TP VOL 03

Buy on Amazon

So yeah I’ve been on a bit of a Popeye splurge in recent months. It started by reading Robert Langridge’s first volume of brand new Popeye stories, followed with picking up all of EC Segar’s original comic work, and now I’m picking up volume 2 and 3 of Langridge’s stuff.  I didn’t know I was two trades behind already.
