Comic Book Covers 11/28/2012

There’s a bunch of stuff happening in comics this week.  On the Marvel side we have another new Marvel NOW! book in Hickman’s FF #1.  We also see the end of Brian Michael Bendis’ many years long run on the Avengers with New Avengers #34.  Sad to see him go, but it’s in great hands with Hickman.  For DC we get the first part of the big Aquaman / Justice League crossover: “Throne of Atlantis”.  It may be hard to believe but with Geoff Johns at the helm Aquaman has been fantastic.  Before Watchman also returns this week with Ozymandias and Silk Spectre.  Lots of great covers this week, here’s a few of them.

Book Review: The Last Rhinos

The Last Rhinos
by Lawrence Anthony and Graham Spence

The Last Rhinos is the third book by Lawrence Anthony and with his passing earlier this year I am quite sad to say it will be the last.  He was truly a remarkable man and I highly recommend his first two books, “The Elephant Whisperer”, and “Babylon’s Ark”.  This latest book chronicles Anthony’s efforts to save the Northern White Rhino extinction, and what efforts they are.
