Weekly Awards For The Comic Books From February 27, 2008

Let’s go ahead and dish out The Revolution’s weekly awards.

The nominees for the Che for the best read of the week:

All Star Batman and Robin #9
Captain America #35
Daredevil #105
Legion of Super Heroes #39
Project Super Powers #1
Teen Titans #56
Thor #6
Ultimate Spider-Man #119

The Winner: Project Super Powers #1

This week was an extremely tough pick. We really got spoiled with so many fantastic reads this week. This was certainly one of the stronger selection of comic books that we have gotten in a long time. I enjoyed All Star Batman and Robin #9 immensely. However, the outrageous style of writing and limited appeal prevented this title from garnering the Che this week.

Both of Brubaker’s reads were impressive. Captain America #35 was another quality read. However, it lacked that something special in order to win the Che. Daredevil #105 was flat out awesome. This month, Daredevil was actually better than Captain America. Daredevil #105 gave us an incredibly satisfying ending to the Mr. Fear story arc. I absolutely loved seeing the villain actually win at the end of a story arc.

Legion of Super Heroes #39 was another strong read as Shooter continues to flex his muscles on this title. I so wanted to give this issue the Che, but I just couldn’t pull the trigger. Teen Titans #56 was simply a blast to read. This was probably the most fun issue of the week.

Thor #6 was another quality read. But, its slow pacing is what kept it from winning the Che. Ultimate Spider-Man #119 was a joy to read. This issue showcases everything that is enjoyable about Bendis’ writing. I wish Marvel would utilize Bendis on more titles like Ultimate Spider-Man that suit his talents rather than titles like New Avengers.

However, in the end, I had to hand the Che to Project Super Powers #1. It was a close and tough decision, by Krueger and Ross continue to impress me with their take on these Golden Age characters. I have a review in the works for this issue, so I’ll go more in depth then. Suffice it to say right now Krueger is beating JMS in the Project Super Powers versus The Twelve grudge match.

And now the nominees for the Sequential Methadone Award for the worst read of the week:


The Winner: N/A

Yeah, that’s right. This week was so damn strong that we didn’t read an issue worthy of the Sequential Methadone Award. That is pretty rare.

So congrats to Project Super Powers #1 for winning the Che for the week.
