|Hot Picks for the Week!|
By John Judy
ACTION COMICS #854 by Kurt Busiek and John Walker. Giant monkey!!!
BOOSTER GOLD #1 by Geoff Johns, Jeff Katz, and Dan Jurgens. A new monthly starring former greed-headed, Reagan-era materialist Booster Gold! These days he’s protecting the time-stream from people who want to mess it up. Chris Claremont beware!
BRAVE AND THE BOLD #6 by Mark Waid and George Perez. Green Lantern and Batman meet the only heroes in the universe who aren’t in the Book of Destiny. Could it be …The Inferior Five?!
CAPTAIN AMERICA #29 by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting. Sharon and the Falcon bust some AIM-brains and Bucky gets a surprise. Brubaker’s run may be the best Cap has ever had, aside from that pesky “death” business. Recommended.
FLASH #231 by Mark Waid and Daniel Acuna. Flash scribe nonpareil Mark Waid is back. Check out the numbering. It’s like the last year never even happened.
FLASH: GREATEST STORIES EVER TOLD SC by Lotsa People. The best of Jay, Barry, Wally, and that poor kid who died of bad writing. Not that you’ll see any of that here! Recommended.
FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SPIDER-MAN #23 by Peter David and Todd Nauck. J. Jonah Jameson gets to live out a fantasy in the final issue of this series.
HELLBLAZER #235 by Andy Diggle and Leonardo Manco. Constantine’s investigating a “sleepy country village.” Not for long. This book’s return to Greatness continues. Recommended.
JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #12 by Brad Meltzer and Ed Benes. Meltzer’s final issue before handing the reins to the awesome Dwayne McDuffie.
NEW UNIVERSAL EVERYTHING WENT WHITE HC by Warren Ellis and Salvador Larroca. Collecting issues #1-6 in which the New Universe really doesn’t suck anymore. Well worth a gander.
PROGRAMME #2 of 12 by Peter Milligan and C.P. Smith. The Cold War gets re-heated with gooned-out superhumans on both sides being pressed into service. Poli-Sci-Fi adventure in the mighty Milligan manner!
SHADOWPACT #16 by Bill Willingham and Tom Derenick. Guest-starring Zatanna and the Justice League in the battle against Doctor Gotham! Seriously. It’s by the guy who writes “Fables” kids!
SUB-MARINER #3 of 6 by Matt Cherniss, Peter Johnson, and Phil Briones. Subby dukes it out with Wolverine and Venom. Marquis of Queensbury anyone?
SUPER VILLAIN TEAM-UP: MODOK’S 11 #2 of 5 by Fred Van Lente and Francis Portela. When your lead characters include such A-Listers as Modok and Mentallo pretty much anything is possible. The follow-up to the Best First Issue Ever from the co-creator of “Action Philosophers.” Highly recommended.
ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #112 by Brian Michael Bendis and Stuart Immonen. Goblin’s back. Again.
WILL EISNER’S SPIRIT ARCHIVES VOL.22 HC by “A. Genius.” This volume collects the Spirit’s adventures from January through June of 1951. Further evidence that Eisner was working on a whole different level from anyone else. Recommended.
WOLVERINE ORIGINS #16 by Daniel Way and Steve Dillon. A story so great they told it 18.5 years ago in Uncanny X-Men #268. But it’s so great Daniel Way thought they should tell it again using big chunks of the same dialogue and action sequences. Heck they even re-print the original for you just so you can make sense of the stuff that doesn’t appear to make any sense at all in the new and improved version. This is why Daniel Way is the best writer who has ever lived. No one else knows how to tell a story that’s already been told better than he does. On the plus side they throw in a Chaykin illustrated preview of an upcoming Wolverine comic. And despite the cover Winter Bucky does not appear in these pages. Smart move, Winter Bucky.
