Tuesday Night Recommendation #6

Nextwave #6

Part parody, part satire, part surrealism, and part EXPLODO, NextWave has been Warren Ellis's most purely entertaining comic yet. You may not learn something, you may not feel any deep emotions or connections to the characters.

But you WILL laugh.

Basically, Warren Ellis has taken some of the lesser known and under used characters that Marvel had lying around, put them all on the same team, and unleashed them on some of the weirdest monsters in the Marvel Universe, which so far has included Broccoli Robots, a Corrupt Cop/Voltron giant, and Fin Fang Foom including the funniest page involving Fin Fang Foom ever drawn, until he topped himself the very next issue!

But don't take my word for it. Take Warren's.

I wholeheartedly second that emotion, if I may channel Smokey Robinson.

Nextwave = good fun + humor + boom + pretty = good comics.

It's the Associative Property of Nextwave!

The best was the Captain's origin.

I keep reading people who criticize Ellis for providing nothing more than 'empty calories' with NEXTWAVE. I enjoy a good laugh now and again, though. I only wish it was an ongoing title.

NextWAVE isn't ongoing?
