When The Top Pick is the Topic, the result is the “Topick” -Jay 5/6/2015


Uber # 24 is InsideComics “Topick” for May the Sixth, 2015.


“Topick”. A word I think I came up with, all on my own.  Clever right? It’s a word that appears like something that gets you kicked out of the school spelling bee after it is discovered you’re dirty for performance altering illegal drugs.  What you want to do is win, but what you really are is lazy.

This is what occurs when one is trudging for new ways to talk about comic books that others aren’t.  Good luck, writer! You and everyone who can use WordPress.

So sad.

But about Uber, this title has won hearts and minds like the characters within it! And with the web at close to a trillion websites, there is a loss for two words that can honestly articulate Avatar Press’ mind-blowing alternate WWII tale. The undeniably complex soldiers in Gillen’s tale whether on the side of the Axis or Allies are all developed and invested in with care.

The best comic book writer and the best artist often do make the best comics.  And Uber is among those titles.  Running now into issue #24, Kieron Gillen authors an alternate WWII history by way of an arms race involving super-soldiers created using “catalysts” which kill a number of test subjects and yields only a handful of success.

Daniel Gete’s visuals, along with Digikore Studio’s color work, bring soldiers into battle with eye-gouging efficacy that appear to energize the very pages with a science one has no right to meddle with! And one could wager no other team could except for these two could commit such war crimes and escape trial.  Because they know what they’re doing!

Thank you Kieron and Daniel!

I fucking love this title.  Thanks Avatar, you keep putting titles like these out I will buy them.  Sometimes more than once!

(You and everyone else who got sucked in by the halo effect, Jay)

Pick up Uber in its collected editions, and don’t forget to check out issue #24 today at your local comic shop! And if you can’t locate one, just use the little tool in the lower right of the screen.

Happy New Comic Day!
