Who knew Alzheimer’s could be so much fun? Okay, it’s not. That was a joke. Alz.org, please don’t bash me. At the least, bash Robert Kirkman for throwing such an interesting comic proposal (which involves superheroic Alzheimer’s … or a superhero with Alzheimer’s, I’m not quite sure, honestly) into Top Cow’s Pilot Season hat. Sheldon Mitchell provides decent—not breathtaking, but a good pick for the comic, I think—visuals, too.
The brain responsible for The Walking Dead, Invincible, and Marvel Zombies splatters its gray matter and creative goo all over the pages of this year’s Top Cow Battle of the Comics. With Marc Silvestri illustrating covers, Robert Kirkman now grinds away at scripting five distinct pilot issues in a whirlwind funny book election that once challenged a hodgepodge of writers and artists to present a numero uno idea that would steal readers’ hearts forever. Why the publisher scrapped the original concept in favor of an already known duo beats me, as Pilot Season always seemed to horde both press and audience attention. Readers are, however, presumably still waiting for last year’s winner (Twilight Guardian, written by Troy Hickman) to make its grand entrance into seriesdom, so its delay might have something to do with Top Cow’s safer (and more boring) approach to their baby. (Whatever. I never fancied Twilight Guardian much, anyway.)
