Pick of the Week – Idolized #3

Aspen ComicsIdolized has flown under the radar for many people, but this series is absolutely on the list of series you’re not reading, but should. Mixing super heroes and American Idol, the comic follows a young girl as she makes her way through the show in hopes of getting revenge on the villain that killed her parents.

There’s a mix of action, teen angst and some great art that ties it all together. Idolized #3 is a great entry in the young series. I’ve read it, it’s solid and you should absolutely check it out, I guarantee you’ll want to go back and get the first two issues if you can find it.

  • Idolized #3 – see above
  • Bedlam #1 – Fillmore Press was once Madder Red, a homicidal maniac and criminal overlord who terrorized the town of Bedlam for years. Then he got better. This is what happens next. Um yes please.
  • Rachel Rising #12 – Again, you’re not reading this and you should. Terry Moore’s fantastic series about a girl back from the dead is one of the creepiest things out there.
  • Scam #2 The first issue was a solid read and I expect no less from this series mixing Ocean’s 11 with super heroes.
  • Charismagic: Death Princess #1 – Aspen gets a second comic on the list. I don’t usually enjoy fantasy comics, but this one I really dug, for that alone, this makes the list.
