Looking forward to 2011

Jonah Weiland of Comic Book Resources asked me to write up my take on what I'm looking forward to in 2011. And this is by no means a complete list (most of this is just the first few months of the year), but I thought I'd just share my note with you good folks...

There's a lot to look forward to, Jonah. I think we're seeing a lot of really great things coming from the indy publishers and creators. I'm reading more non-superhero comics than ever before. It's not that the superhero stuff is bad, it's actually been quite good for the last several years. It's been enjoying a renaissance lately, and I think the other creators in the industry are responding in kind now. This is going to be a huge year for some folks. So here's my list:

More LOCKE & KEY comics! Simply the most horrifying and intelligent book on the market today (that I've read, I don't read them all, I'll admit). Writer Joe Hill seems to be the big draw to get people to pick up the book, but I'd be lying if I didn't say Gabriel Rodriguez's art isn't equally captivating. You just can't put this book down.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to the G.I. JOE event COBRA CIVIL WAR that launches with a new #0 issue in April. That's going to blow JOE fans away.

I'm very curious to see what newish writers Nick Spencer, Jim McCann, Nathan Edmondson are doing.

From Nick, more MORNING GLORIES, but I also want to see his INFINITE VACATION and I'd love to see more books like his FORGETLESS which seems a little more over-looked. Personal note, Nick is a Comics Experience alum, and we're all thrilled with his success!

Edmondson shows great promise with his diverse books like OLYMPUS, THE LIGHT, and now WHO IS JAKE ELLIS? which looks just fantastic.

I'm looking forward to more HALCYON by Marc Guggenheim. I think this is a really refreshing take on super heroes.

STUFF OF LEGEND by Mike Raicht, Brian Smith and Charles Paul Wilson III. It is kind of a TOY STORY for adults. Really great stuff.

Also, 2011 needs is going to kick some butt with top artists doing great work.

I want more KICK-ASS from Romita!

I'm really looking forward to the ICON book about Jim Lee's art of DC and WIldstorm. I think that's going to be great.

Let's not forget that we're going to get more great books from The Library of American Comics with more DICK TRACY volumes and more BLOOM COUNTY.

We need more PARKER from Darwyn Cooke, of course.

I can't wait to get my hands on BATMAN: EUROPA. I've known about this project for years. And now it's almost here!

Travis Charest's WEAPONS OF THE METABARONS book is finally coming out here in the states. That's coming outin January.

And I'm pretty stoked to read more of the talented Kirkman and Bendis dudes. Both THE WALKING DEAD and SCARLET have been excellent.

Anyway, just my two cents...
